Kim Kardashian is talking about a pretty delicate subject that she talked to her kids about as well. Check out what The Shade Room posted about all this below.
‘As a businesswoman and pop culture superstar, #KimKardashian’s success if often criticized by people who accuse her of trying to mirror the image of a black woman. In a recent interview with @i_d, Kim addressed the various cultural appropriation claims, from the rebranding of her shape wear line, to wearing matching cornrows with her daughter North,’ TSR said.

TSR continued and said: ‘While Kim has often been called out for her physical appearance, she told Jeremy O. Harris of I-D that she has been trying to navigate being politically correct while raising black children.’
‘Obviously, I would never do anything to appropriate any culture. But I have in the past got backlash from putting my hair in braids and I understand that,’ Kim said.
‘Honesty, a lot of the time it comes from my daughter asking us to do matching hair.’
Someone said: ‘Not she blamed it on north when she been doing this before she even had kids,’ and another fan hooped in the comments to leave this message: ‘She didn’t really address anything, she simply put it on her daughter lmao The things being said about her started before she had kids.’
A commenter posted this: ‘If white people want to wear braids so bad fine then allow is us to wear them. Allow us to wear them to your corporate jobs and attend your schools and stop telling us we look unkept and unprofessional when we wear them. Stop sending black peoples and kids home from work and school saying that braids, Afros and dreads are unprofessional if y’all want to wear them in our presence why can’t we wear them in yours. Didn’t a black bit just get kicked off the basketball ball team for wearing his natural hair. We not even allowed to wear them if we’re being honest.’
One other follower said: ‘Girl, the BLACK FISHING is NOT about “Boxer” braids, it’s deeper than that and that’s what you are FORGETTING,’ and a commenter said: ‘Posted a whole page saying not a single thing.’
