So Kim Kardashian decided to take a break from ruining Vogue and Photoshopping selfies and write a really personal and somewhat deep blog on racism. Because having a baby with a black guy has made her an expert on such matters, she felt the need to let the world knows how much she now “gets it” and will become a voice against it.
Really, the only time the word “deep” should be in a sentence about Kim Kardashian is when it follows the words “gaping” and “butthole.”
By becoming the mother to a biracial child, Kim Kardashian is now a leading authority on prejudices and discrimination. It seems there has been a lot of hate thrown Kim’s way that she feels is solely due to the skin color of her fiancé (or husband? Who the fuck knows anymore) and their baby. Why Kim has forgotten that she has been on the receiving end of a crap ton of hate for YEARS before getting knocked up, I don’t know. Maybe she conveniently is having amnesia to try and make herself look better.
So in her obviously ghost written blog that I will copy and paste here in case you have 45 seconds of your life to waste, Kardashian says she didn’t even realize that like, racism was even a thing anymore before having North. I am guessing Kim also didn’t realize there was a world existing outside of Botox and ill fitting peplum shirts.
I never knew how much being a mom would change me. It’s amazing how one little person and the love I have for her has brought new meaning to every moment. What once seemed so important, now feels insignificant. It’s like I get to see the world for the first time again, but through someone else’s eyes. It’s a beautiful thing to feel and experience so much more, but with that beauty comes a flip side – seeing through my daughter’s eyes the side of life that isn’t always so pretty.
To be honest, before I had North, I never really gave racism or discrimination a lot of thought. It is obviously a topic that Kanye is passionate about, but I guess it was easier for me to believe that it was someone else’s battle. But recently, I’ve read and personally experienced some incidents that have sickened me and made me take notice. I realize that racism and discrimination are still alive, and just as hateful and deadly as they ever have been.
I feel a responsibility as a mother, a public figure, a human being, to do what I can to make sure that not only my child, but all children, don’t have to grow up in a world where they are judged by the color of their skin, or their gender, or their sexual orientation. I want my daughter growing up in a world where love for one another is the most important thing.
So the first step I’m taking is to stop pretending like this isn’t my issue or my problem, because it is, it’s everyone’s… because the California teenager who was harassed and killed by his classmates for being gay, the teenage blogger in Pakistan who was shot on her school bus for speaking out in favor of women’s rights, the boy in Florida who was wrongly accused of committing a crime and ultimately killed because of the color of his skin, they are all someone’s son and someone’s daughter and it is our responsibility to give them a voice and speak out for those who can’t and hopefully in the process, ensure that hate is something our children never have to see.
Aww, isn’t it so adorable how Kim hired some strapped for cash recent college grad to write this for her? I like how they were smart enough to leave out little tidbits of information in order to dumb it down just enough that we could maybe believe Kim wrote it. Like leaving out Trayvon Martin’s name, which I think at this point children in China probably know (though Farrah Abraham might still be thinking that’s her girl from back in the day. But we all know her head is full of semen and space).
This whole smart and caring Kim Kardashian look won’t last long. We all know bitch can’t go more than a few days without an ass shot on Instagram. And when that happens, and Kim goes back to being the vapid moron we all know she truly is, the world will be right again. Hallelujah.
