Kim Kardashian: ‘Interracial Couples Are So Cute’
In the cover story, the TV star, known for her love of chocolaty men (who can blame her?), has some fascinating views on interracial dating.
“When I was in high school, I’d get magazines and see interracial couples and think, ‘They are so cute;” Kardashian said. “I’ve always been attracted to a certain kind of look.”
Certain kind of look being super rich Black men.
As you may know, Kim dated Michael Jackson’s nephew TJ when she was a teenager. It was her first bout with Black men. At age 20, she secretly married music producer Damon Thomas describing the experience as the most rebellious thing she’s ever done. “I was very happy at home learning how to cook and clean and keep a house.” Oh.
Speaking of her late father’s views on her dating Black men, Kim recalls, “He said I should prepare myself for people to say things to me.”
Kanye West referenced the father-daughter moment during his BET Honors speech, stating Robert Kardashian told Kim, “One day you may have a black child…a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful black child…and it’s gonna be hard. You’re gonna see how hard it is.” It’s been suspected Kanye dramatized the narration for TV award show effect.
Taking a page from Beyonce’s book, Kim now openly refers to herself as a “feminist.”
“I’ve never really been one on labels, and I don’t like to push my view,” she said. “If I feel something, it’s how I feel. I never say, ‘I feel this way, so you should feel that way.’ Not that there’s anything wrong with it, but I just am who I am. But yeah, I think you would call me a feminist.”
