Racist Trolls Attack Khole Kardashian's Daughter
Internet trolls were working hard last week under the Kardashian's Instagram page. The racism was out in full force to mock and make fun of Khole Kardashians daughter True who is not even 1 year old.
Last week, Kim Kardashian shared a picture of True sitting with her youngest daughter Chicago West and Kylie Jenner's daughter Stormi Webster. The babies are a few months older than True, and while their fathers are also black; they have lighter skin than True. Many trolls couldn't help but send nasty comments about this.
They called True ugly for being darker than her cousins.
While there were many people trolling the little girl, there were equally as many people who were supporting her as well.
If this hate for True's skin color isn't colorism I don't know what is. For those who are unaware of colorism, it is when someone is "prejudice or discrimination against individuals with a dark skin tone, normally among people of the same ethnic or racial group," according to dictionary.com
Most of the people posting negative comments about True were people of color. This hate for dark skin is like cancer within the black community, and it will slowly kill us if we don't treat the problem. Hopefully, Khloe Kardashian and her family will be able to help True have self-esteem in herself because the world will be out to get her dark skin.
