I Want To Raise My Baby Not To See Color: Kim Kardahsian On Parenting A Bi-Racial Child

March 27, 2013  |  

As Kim Kardashian transitions into her third trimester of pregnancy, people are moving beyond silly rumors such as the one that implied she and Kanye are planning on naming their unborn baby North West, to asking real, hard-hitting questions, such as if she’s prepared to raise a bi-racial child. While promoting her upcoming movie, Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor, the mom-to-be chatted it up with BET. During the interview she revealed that she has quite a few friends who have bi-racial children and that they have been prepping her for some of the challenges that may lie ahead by offering advice.

“I have a lot of friends who are of all different nationalities and their children are bi-racial so they’ve kind of talked to me a little bit about it and what to expect and what not to expoect. I think that the most important thing is and the way I want to raise my children is to not see color. That’s important to me,” said Kim.

She went on to express that she recognizes that there will be many experiences that she probably will not be able to prepare for, but she’s open-minded and wants her kid to experience the world and its different cultures.

“I think there will be so many experiences that you won’t really know how to prepare for until you really go through it. But I think raising a child in general is challenging. But, I think that as long as you are open-minded and don’t have any pre-concieved ideas of how you are going to raise your children, it really keeps this broad spectrum. Obviously,  you want your child to travel the world and experience different races and different cultures everywhere. So that’s really important to me.”
