Khloe Kardashian talks about being a white mom her biracial daughter True!

Khloe Kardashian has a three year old biracial daughter named True with the professional basketball player Tristan Thompson. Being a white mom, Khloe opened up about what its like to have a biracial kid and learning and growing along with them.

In a recent interview with Leomie Anderson’s “Role Model” podcast, Khloe said, “I will be always learning and trying to do the best I can do as being her mom, but I’m obviously not a woman of color,” Kardashian said.

Khloe said, “I do want her to be exposed to as much inclusion, but variety as possible. I don’t want her living in a bubble thinking, you know— because we do have this very privileged life and I want her to know all types of life and all types of living and be very aware of that.”

“I know some people get uncomfortable with talking to their kids about race or they think, ‘Oh we live in a bubble. We never have to address that my child is Black,’ I mean, of course you do! You’re only setting them up I think for failure if you don’t talk about race and probably the things that they’re going to endure once they’re in, quote, the ‘real world,'” Kardashian continued.

Khloe also praised and credited her father for always being true to her and her sisters about realities of life. Kim and Kylie also have biracial kids, to which Khloe said, “The beauty of having some of my sisters in the same situation is we get to have those conversations probably together.”

“I have to educate her as best as I can while still educating myself at the same time,” Khloe further said. “Of course we don’t want to overexpose our children or tell them things too young,” she noted, “and I don’t know when that time is, but I think I’ll learn it when I’m in it.”

“I think it’s our duty as parents to really expose them while they have the safety and security of their parents to, I think, communicate that with them and still guide them and help them instead of just like letting them out into the free world and now they’re like, Wait, this isn’t what—I didn’t hear about this, I had no idea this was what real life was,” said Khloe.

Talking about parenting her daughter, Khloe pointed another challenge. She said, “Something that I already know I’m going to have trouble with is letting her make her own mistakes. That’s how we all learn in life.”

She added, “I know it’s a never-ending journey being a mother. It’s not just when they’re 18 and you just forget about them…You’re always their mom.”
