Reality has set in for Kim Kardashian — and it’s more daunting than anything her TV shows could produce.
The 33-year-old mother-of-one has realized that racism is still alive and says she worries about raising daughter North West in such a world.
“To be honest, before I had North, I never really gave racism or discrimination a lot of thought,” Kardashian wrote on her personal blog Wednesday.
Kardashian said racism is an issue her fiance Kanye West is ‘passionate’ about. kimkardashian via Instagram Kardashian said racism is an issue her fiance Kanye West is ‘passionate’ about.
“It is obviously a topic that (fiancé) 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.”
In the entry, titled “On My Mind,” the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star took a moment to share her feelings of responsibility, as a mother, to make sure her child and 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.”
Kim Kardashian has a lot on her mind today. The E! star, who took to Twitter to dispute false wedding rumors that have been circulating earlier today, also felt it…
“I want my daughter growing up in a world where love for one another is the most important thing,” she wrote. “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.”
Kardashian cited a few examples to further her point — apparently referencing Lawrence King, Malala Yousafzai and Trayvon Martin — without naming them.

“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,” she wrote.
