Kim Kardashian Shares Concerns About Racism Towards North West

The reality star has revealed she’s worried about her daughter growing up in a world where racism is present

Kim Kardashian has taken to her blog to share her concerns about racism towards her daughter with Kanye West.
 
The mum of one, who gave birth to North last June, wrote, ‘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.

'I realize that racism and discrimination are still alive, and just as hateful and deadly as they ever have been'

‘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.’

Kim’s comments come after her appearance at the USC Shoah Foundation’s 20th anniversary gala, where the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star spoke about how much motherhood has changed her views on the world.

The 33 year old continued her blog post, saying, ‘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 colour 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.’

Kimye are set to get married this month and Kim took to Twitter yesterday to put an end to rumours that she and the rapper have already walked down the aisle.

Either way, one thing is for sure – how cute will North be as a flower girl?
