Speaking out. Khloé Kardashian sounded off on the topic of interracial dating in a post on her app on Friday, October 28, sharing a fan’s story and adding that she didn’t understand why some people still make it an issue.
“Interracial dating in today’s society is still looked down upon by many people,” Kelsey Wells, wrote to Kardashian, 32. “I am a woman who dates a man. Why can’t it just be that simple?”
Wells went on to explain that she lives in the South, and everywhere she and her boyfriend go, “there are always stares,” and “people often make rude comments and gestures toward us.” Even so, she writes, “I brush it off because I know the man I love is HUMAN.”
The Strong Looks Better Naked author seconded Wells’ sentiments and added her own two cents. “Thank you Kelsey for talking about this important issue,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wrote. “I don’t support racism or discrimination of any kind and I especially don’t understand why some people are still against interracial relationships.”
“Like who the F cares anymore?!” Kardashian went on. “It’s so crazy because we’re all human beings capable of love so why does skin color have anything to do with it?”
Kardashian is currently dating Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson and was previously married to NBA star Lamar Odom.
At a presentation for her Good American denim line in Los Angeles on Tuesday, October 18, she revealed that her favorite date nights with her beau of two months, 25, are the relaxing ones at home.
“[We like to] just chill at home,” she told Us. “That’s really what we do, mellow. We’re not that exciting. I feel like people think I’m, like wild and like hanging from chandeliers.”
Us Weekly exclusively reported on September 14 that Kardashian and Thompson are an item. At the time, an insider told Us that the reality star was “really into him.”
