Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Khloe Kardashian opened up about her plans to address racism and privilege with daughter True Thompson.
As a mother of a biracial daughter, Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Khloe Kardashian revealed her plans to address racism and privilege with True Thompson. Khloe acknowledged how she will speak from an outsider’s perspective while ensuring that her daughter understands life from all spectrums. She also took a nod to her late father Robert Kardashian in instilling the importance of humility and gratefulness into her and her siblings during their youth. Now, Khloe is ready to pass the torch while raising a child of her own.
With the mix of biracial babies in the KarJenner family, addressing sensitive topics like racism is something Khloe and her sisters have to think about. Despite their recent breakup, Khloe and Tristan Thompson remain active co-parents for their daughter. Kim filed for divorce from Kanye West earlier this year, but they also are co-parenting their four children. Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are still together and raising their daughter Stormi Webster as a family. With Kim, Khloe and Kylie all having children with Black men in entertainment, the reality star sisters are raising Black children in a country scarred and plagued by deep-rooted issues around race and discrimination.
As a result, Khloe recently opened up and shared how she plans to address the sensitive topic with her daughter as she grows in age. “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,” Khloe said during an appearance on Leomie Anderson’s Role Model podcast. Outside of Khloe’s privilege as a wealthy white woman with fame and stature, the Good American founder explained why it’s important for her daughter to grow up with an inclusive outlook on life. “I do want her to be exposed to as much inclusion, but variety as possible,” Khloe said. “I don’t want her living in a bubble thinking, you know— because we do have this very privileged life and I want her to know all types of life and all types of living and be very aware of that.”
Khloe is understanding how challenging it can be for some families to address topics of race and discrimination, but the reality star says it’s crucial to raising a child in today’s day and age. “I mean, of course you do,” Khloe said of discussing race in the household. “You’re only setting them up I think for failure if you don’t talk about race and probably the things that they’re going to endure once they’re in, quote, the ‘real world.'” It looks like Khloe is well aware of what True needs to know as she grows up in the world. Luckily for Khloe, she and her sisters are all experiencing these motherhood moments together.
Khloe spoke of the benefit she has by having sisters with biracial children within the same age group. “The beauty of having some of my sisters in the same situation is we get to have those conversations probably together,” Khloe shared. She also expressed how she and True will both be learning from their talks about race. While the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star knows her daughter might be a little too young for such a serious conversation, she is being mindful and preparing herself for when the right time will come.
