Khloe Kardashian doesn’t want her daughter True to ‘live in a privileged bubble’ about race issues and promises to educate her in the future.
The former Keeping Up With the Kardashians star shares the three-year-old with on/off boyfriend Tristan Thompson.
Recognising that she’s ‘not a woman of colour’, Khloe hopes to continue learning about racism in order to open her daughter’s eyes to the harsh realities of the world.
Speaking to model Leomie Anderson on her podcast Role Model, the reality star explained: ‘I have to educate her as best as I can [while] still educating myself at the same time.
‘I will be always learning and trying to do the best I can do as being her mum, but I’m obviously not a woman of colour.’
She continued: ‘I don’t want her living in a bubble — ’cause we do have this very privileged life, and I want her to know all types of life and all types of living, and be very aware of that.’
Khloe, 37, praised her late father Robert Kardashian for providing her sisters with ‘a very good life’ of wealth and privilege even though he ‘didn’t come from that’ himself.

‘He always exposed us to the realities of life,’ she said.
The Good American boss continued: ‘You’re only setting them up for failure if you don’t talk about race and the things they’re going to endure when they’re in, quote, the “real world”.
‘I know it’s a never-ending journey being a mother. It’s not just when they’re 18 and you just forget about them … you really think that as a kid, but you’re always their mom — that’s always turned on.’
Tristan and Khloe have been amicably co-parenting True throughout their turbulent relationship the past few years.
The couple split days before True was born after it emerged Tristan, 30, had cheated on Khloe during her pregnancy. After getting back together, Tristan admitted to kissing Kylie Jenner’s best friend Jordyn Woods a year later, causing them to split again.
Since then, the Boston Celtics player has worked to get back into Khloe’s good books and it seemed to work with the reality star somewhat admitting they were a couple again on KUWTK.
However, they are said to have broken up again earlier this month with unproven claims that Tristan was spotted hanging out with other women at a party.
Khloe and Tristan were most recently seen together over the weekend taking True to a dance class.
