this kid unfortunately will seen socially as BLACK

chances of discrimination are high

fuzzybear44 June 24, 2016 at 2:49 am

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

neiltennant September 19, 2016 at 10:46 am

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

Racist.

Samiiraa September 20, 2016 at 1:40 pm

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 ?

phaedra April 25, 2016 at 12:01 am

Cute Dutch child.

neiltennant June 22, 2016 at 8:42 am

brainless stupid idiot

Nice mixture

andrew November 16, 2015 at 3:23 am

Did you expect a white-looking kid? I consider her a “mulatto” but I know she will socially seen as “black” in US.

athelya December 11, 2015 at 1:51 pm

how is that sad lol.

athelya December 11, 2015 at 5:50 pm

north looks like kim k when she was young.. kids change while they grow up.

fuzzybear44 December 16, 2015 at 11:40 pm

You can’t make a statement like that. There are probably millions of Halfies that you’ve never seen. The old kid part of the site often showed examples that would cancel out what you wrote Kids like this were often displayed:

this girl here, I always see saying no one believes her dad is black

So the only statement that would be true, is to say the mixed kids you’ve seen look fully black

neiltennant June 22, 2016 at 8:43 am

yes indeed

he will be seen as black

the only people who will socially see her as black are stupid racist and what they think isn’t important

Samiiraa September 20, 2016 at 1:43 pm

Socially ? She is rich, money has no color. And that’s totally wrong to say that mixed people are treated the same way as black people, even in the US.

But didn’t oprah winfrey get insulted, and she has truck loads of money

Quote(And that’s totally wrong to say that mixed people are treated the same way as black people, even in the US.)

I know plenty of fgms in the US. that would strongly disagree with you on that. One of the racist jokes is,(What do you call a half black person, A N-word)

fuzzybear44 November 16, 2015 at 12:20 am

She’s better looking than I thought she would be

cwm85 November 13, 2015 at 7:16 pm

Celebrity?

ashash November 13, 2015 at 7:17 pm

She is. She looks more like Kanye than she does Kim.

cwm85 November 14, 2015 at 9:56 am
