Kardashian wrote in her note that “there is a natural instinct that protects my children from anything that might make them feel sad or insecure.”
“The pain and suffering inflicted by racism is not a thing of the past and I have a responsibility to talk to my children honestly and often about it, even when the truth is embarrassing,” she wrote.
“I have to make sure they understand what it means to have white privilege and take the time to learn and discuss Black History, except for just one short month a year.”
Kardashian’s younger sisters Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner have children born to black men, and their brother Robert Kardashian has a daughter with a black wife.
The oldest Kardashian encouraged mothers to take the opportunity to take advantage of this “to teach our children, to allow our children to feel comfortable and to come and talk to us about anything”.
“My kids sometimes ask questions I may not know the answers to, so we explore them together. I felt like I was always on the right side of this, but I have to learn a lot and I want to go to school even more so I can be a better mother, a better aunt to his nephews and nephews, a better friend and a better person. ”
