We all know Kim and Kanye are expecting a child, but what hasn’t been discussed is that they are having a interracial child. Not that it’s the biggest deal in the world but it has proven to be an important one in our society. Kim opened up about it recently to the BET.
She starts with discussing her acting role in Temptation, but around the 00:55 mark she gets into raising a biracial child.
Some quotes from Kim in the interview.
“I have a lot of friends that are all different nationalities and their children are bi-racial, so they have kind of talked to me a little bit about it and what to expect and what not to expect,” she said. “But I think that the most important thing is, how I would want to raise my children, is to just not see color.”
“Obviously you want your children, for me, to travel the world and experience different races and different cultures everywhere so I think that would be something that is important to me to give as much information as I could.
What the author of ‘Five Things Parents Of Biracial Kids Should Know,’, Amanda Rodriguez says in contrast to Kim’s idealistic approach
1. Your kids will see color. They will see Mommy’s color, they will see Daddy’s color and they will see their own. In some families where everyone, including the friends and the neighbors, look alike, kids don’t always notice skin color. My boys had to face their difference very early in life and began asking questions about Daddy’s white skin (he’s a fair-skinned Mexican person) being different from their own light brown. Personally, I think they’re lucky because they get to appreciate the beauty of diversity by living with it every day.
