Khloé Kardashian says parents need to talk about race! Khloé Kardashian, 37, is opening up about the nuances of raising a Black child in today’s America.
The reality star and founder of the inclusive clothing brand, Good American, sat down with Leomie Anderson on her podcast, Role Model, where she touched on the importance of educating parents and children about race.
“I will be always learning and trying to do the best I can do as being her mom, but I’m obviously not a woman of color,” Kardashian told Anderson about her daughter True, 3, whom she shares with basketball player Tristan Thompson.
“I want her to be exposed to as much inclusion and variety as possible,” she continued. “I don’t want her living in a bubble. Because we do have a privileged life, I want her to know all types of life, all types of living and be very aware of that.”
Kardashian, whose father was the famous lawyer Robert Kardashian, added that her late father “always exposed us to the realities of life.”
“I know some people get uncomfortable with talking to their kids about race,” she added. “Like, they think, Oh we live in a bubble. We never have to address that my child is Black. Of course you do! You’re only setting them up for failure when you don’t talk about race and things they’re going to endure when they’re in, quote, the ‘real world.’”
