      What do mean, unfortunately seen as black? There’s nothing wrong with being seen as black(socially or otherwise). Next this kid comes from a rich family, there’s little chance of discrimination against her

        ok i am racist or what ?

        i mean the society will see this child as a black child

        nothing wrong about blacks.

        bUT we know what happened in the US the last 3 years police killing black boys and men

        Shame on you OBAMA shame on you AMERICA

        THAT s what i meant

        ok this kid will have all the privileges but mind if he will be an actor someday he will always be categorized as black actor

        and although they have fortunately a lot of money, he will face racism everyday

        there are even cases where children of black wealthy people visit private schools and they are racially profiled and annoyed

          Well I didn’t call you racist, nor do I think you meant to be insulting. However that is exactly how your comment comes off. Now even if the kid was seen as (Mixed or biracial), there’s always going to be someone who hates her. If you ever read racist peoples comments, you’ll see they actually hate Biracial people more than they hate regular black people. They call those peoples white parent a race traitors etc.

          Shame on America without a doubt, However this has nothing to do with Obama. Police have been doing dirty things like that in the black community for generations now . Police have been beating people to death(1980 Miami riots), hanging them, raping etc. and getting away with it. Should we blame that on Obama to even though he wasn’t the President at the time? There are police who are members of the KKK. Police have shot up black churches. During the riot of Tulsa Oklahoma, when the whites and KKK attack the blacks, the police only arrested black people. The only difference now is that everyone has a video camera, and it’s put out there for everyone to see.

          Ok, but growing up, she might not mine being seen as a black actress. We have no idea what’s going to happen. Now as far as facing racism. like I said before, even if she’s seen as mixed, she could face racism. I seen rich white kids discriminate, against other rich white kids. Kids are some of the meanest people you’ll ever come across. She’ll have to get tough if that happens

    • Samiiraa says:

      That’s totally wrong. She will always be seen as Kanye and Kim’s daughter, she will go to the best schools and have a priviledged life.
      What discrimination are you talking about ?
