Reality TV Star Kim Kardashian West was racially abused on a plane but advised not to react because it wasn’t ”worth it”.
The 34-year-old reality star – who is expecting her second child, a son, with husband Kanye West – was travelling with daughter North, now two, when an unnamed woman said “awful” things to her but she decided against confronting her fellow passenger.
“I did have an awful experience on a plane once, she was slurring racial things at me. North was less than one so she didn’t know. I was about to go over and say something then an Indian man stopped me and said it just isn’t worth it,” said Kim.
But the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star thinks her and her husband’s “open” attitude will be “really helpful” with their children in understanding and accepting racial diversity.
“So I have experienced it but Kanye and I together are so open, he is so vocal about race, so I think we’ll be really helpful for our children. We will talk to our children the way our dad spoke to us.He had lots of friends in bi-racial relationships and I think he knew I would be in an inter-racial relationship, he would tell me story after story,” she told San Francisco Commonwealth Club.
