North West is an American child. North is the daughter of Kanye West, a rapper, record producer, and fashion designer, and Kim Kardashian West, a television and social media personality, actress, socialite, and model.

Her aunts and uncles are Kourtney Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner, all of whom are television personalities. Her cousin is Penelope Disick, who is Kourtney’s daughter.

A 23andMe DNA test whose results were displayed on the show Keeping Up with the Kardashians (2018) stated that North’s aunts Kourtney and Khloé’s genetic ancestry is:

*53%-58% European
——–*4.5% French
*41.6% Middle Eastern & North African

The test also evidently stated that the Kardashians have a fraction of Native American DNA, presumably under .4% in Khloé’s case, given her 58% European and 41.6% Middle Eastern results.

North’s paternal grandfather is Ray West (the son of James Frederick West, Sr. and Fannie Mae/B. Hooks). Ray was a member of the Black Panthers and a photojournalist, and is now a Christian counselor. James was the son of Virgil Henry West and Estella/Stella Selby. Fannie was the daughter of Early Hooks and Mary Rolfe.

North’s paternal grandmother was Dr. Donda C. (Williams) West (the daughter of Portwood Williams and Lucille E. Eckles). Donda was born in Oklahoma, and was a professor of English at Clark Atlanta University, and Chair of the English Department at Chicago State University. Portwood was the son of John Williams and Clara. Lucille was the daughter of Clarence Anthony Eckles, and of a woman surnamed Jones.

North’s maternal grandfather was Robert Kardashian, a lawyer (the son of Arthur Thomas Kardashian and Helen Jean Arakelian). Robert was born in Los Angeles, Los Angeles Co., California. Arthur was the son of Tatos Saghatel “Thomas”/Tom Kardashian and Hamas “Hanna” Shakarian. His family was from Kars, Russian Empire, and were ethnic Armenian Molokan Jumpers from Karakale, now Turkey. Helen was the daughter of John Arakel Mgrditchian Arut Arakelian and Vartanoosh/Rose Miroyan/Mirayan. Her parents were ethnic Armenians, from Getap, Vayots Dzor, Armenia and Erzurum, Erzurum, Turkey, respectively.

North’s maternal grandmother is Kris Jenner, a socialite (born Kristen Mary Houghton, the daughter of Robert True Houghton and Mary Gorden/Gordon/Jo Campbell). Kris was born in San Diego, San Diego Co., California, and has English, Scottish, Irish, German, Dutch, Scots-Irish/Northern Irish, Welsh, and remote Jersey Channel Islander and Cornish, ancestry. Robert was the son of True Otis Houghton and Mary Lee Pickens. North’s great-grandmother Mary is the daughter of Gorden/Gordon Lowe Campbell and Lou Ethel Wyatt.

    I prefer light/fair skinned biracial/mixed people,sadly north is too brown?black passing for my liking but she’s pretty and rich,so I’m sure she’ll be just fine.

    • Jacklyn 224 says:

      She’ll be fine,there lots of mixed people even of her kin colour out there these days and the number keeps increasing.If america is racist then she can move to Europe particularly the UK where mixed race people of colour live peacefully without being racially profiled as her ethnic half,she has the money.

  2. 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 ?

  3. fuzzybear44 says:

    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

      Quote(ok i am racist or what ?

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

      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.

      Quote(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)

      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.

      Quote(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)

      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
