After shooting down rumors on Twitter about her upcoming wedding to Kanye West, Kim Kardashian took to her official blog on Wednesday, May 7, to write about how becoming a mother has changed her views on racism.
The 33-year-old reality star writes in a post titled "On My Mind" that having daughter North has changed her perspective on issues of race and discrimination.
"I never knew how much being a mom would change me. It's amazing how one little person and the love I have for her has brought new meaning to every moment. What once seemed so important, now feels insignificant," Kardashian wrote. "It's like I get to see the world for the first time again, but through someone else's eyes. It's a beautiful thing to feel and experience so much more, but with that beauty comes a flip side -- seeing through my daughter's eyes the side of life that isn't always so pretty."
"To be honest, before I had North, I never really gave racism or discrimination a lot of thought. It is obviously a topic that Kanye is passionate about, but I guess it was easier for me to believe that it was someone else's battle," she added. "But recently, I've read and personally experienced some incidents that have sickened me and made me take notice. I realize that racism and discrimination are still alive, and just as hateful and deadly as they ever have been."
Kardashian went on to say, "I feel a responsibility as a mother, a public figure, a human being, to do what I can to make sure that not only my child, but all children, don't have to grow up in a world where they are judged by the color of their skin, or their gender, or their sexual orientation. I want my daughter growing up in a world where love for one another is the most important thing."
