If you don't know by now that Kim Kardashian is pregnant, I'd like to salute you and ask your secret. If, though, you're like the rest of us and are totally and inexplicably immersed in everything she and that little fetus of hers wears and does, then here's a new tidbit you can sink your teeth into: while promoting some new movie she's in on BET, Kim shared her thoughts on raising a biracial baby. She said:
I have a lot of friends that are all different nationalities and their children are biracial, so they have kind of talked to me a little bit about it and what to expect and what not to expect. But I think that the most important thing is how I would want to raise my children is to just not see color.
Kim went on to say that she won't know how to handle the situation until she's in it and acknowledges that parenting in general is a challenge, race of the baby notwithstanding.
OK. I know Kim is damned if she does, damned if she doesn't with everything right now, but come on, ignoring the baby's race isn't going to help anything. "Not seeing color" is just going to cause more problems than it will solve. Shouldn't we teach our children about their heritage, lineage, and culture?
Kim and Kanye's baby will have a rich ancestry that incorporates Kim's Armenian genealogy and Kanye's African legacy. There are probably countless things little baby North West can be proud of when it comes to his forebearers and I hope Kim and Kanye are excited to teach him all about what makes them special and connected.
Then once those lessons are out of the way, they can then tackle Mommy's sex tape, and that time Daddy embarrassed Taylor Swift.
