Mathew Knowles is currently doing heavy promo for his new book, “Racism: From the Eyes of a Child.” During his interview with Good Morning Britain, he was asked his coping techniques after seeing his children’s personal lives in the news, especially the infamous elevator fight between his daughter Solange and son –in-law Jay-Z.

He was asked,

"When you witness things like Solange, 31, in the elevator seemingly attacking Jay-Z and reported marriage problems – is it hard as a parent to step back?" 

He responded to the question by saying,

“It’s always hard for a parent to let go. I felt the same way when I was growing up, I didn’t want to be under my parents’ nest so I understand that. I hope, and I feel very calm and comfortable about this, that they’ve been given the tools to be successful.”

He also added,

“Are they going to make mistakes? Absolutely. But mistakes are a reason to grow. I’m more concerned about the racism and colourism.”
