Motherhood has enlightened Kim Kardashian’s racial consciousness. Apparently since the birth of her daughter North West, Kim now has an understanding about the wickedness undertone and blatant disrespect from social media and public figures (i.e. Joan Rivers’s comments about North’s eyebrows.) and the incident when she was called a ‘n*gger lover’ causing Kanye to attack and then settle out of court with a heckler in LA. Kim took to her website today and wrote about the tough topic, read the letter in its entirety below:
“I never knew how much being a mom would change me. Its amazing how one little person and the love I have for her has brought new meaning to every moment. What once seemed so important, now feels insignificant. It’s like I get to see the world for the first time again, but through someone else’s eyes. It’s a beautiful thing to feel and experience so much more, but with that beauty comes a flip side – seeing through my daughter’s eyes the side of life that isn’t always so pretty.
To be honest, before I had North, I never really gave racism or discrimination a lot of thought. It is obviously a topic that Kanye is passionate about, but I guess it was easier for me to believe that it was Someone else’s battle. But recently, I’ve read and personally experienced some incidents that have sickened me and made me take notice. I realize that racism and discrimination are still alive, and just as hateful and deadly as they ever have been.

16-year-old Grace Bush is having the greatest week ever. The Florida student has graduated from high school and college all in one week – graduating from college first. Grace received her degree from Florida Atlantic University last Friday and today she will graduate from Florida Atlantic University High School, all while maintaining a 3.8 GPA. The teen was participating in FAU’s special dual-enrollment program, which gives more talented students college credit for selected high school courses. She started at 13, enrolling at Broward College, then transferring to FAU a year later and also took classes during the summer causing her to graduate in three years. She collected a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.
Grace is the third oldest of nine children, also the third to go to college. Her oldest sister has already graduated from college, her second oldest sister will graduate this summer. Grace’s parents would like all of their children to participate in the dual-enrollment program to help save money on tuition.

Say what the hell you want to say about Koo-Koo Wyatt, but that heffa can sang. Much like Tamar Braxton, I feel like Koo-Koo needs to get her ass off of reality tv. Some people, we just don’t need to know them personally. I have no interested in Koo-Koo the wife or mother. I think that person is crazy as bat sh!t. However, KeKe Wyatt the artist, I am all here for!
I just finished listening to Keke’s new single ‘Fall In Love’, and I must say it is fire. I closed my eyes as it was playing, and before I realized it, I thought i was in my living room watching Video Soul or Midnight Love. The song definitely holds true to the smooth ballad feel of a real R&B song. KeKe just might be certifiably crazy, but her brain was working just right with this one.
