While Khloe shows off cute photos of baby True, some vile and racist trolls have criticized the literal baby for being “too dark.”
It’s both colorist and racist, and Khloe has been clapping back.
But after Khloe announced that she “doesn’t see color,” her followers began to school her on why she should never say that.
Khloe took a break from reading comments after racist trolls targeted True, but now she’s calling out cowardly trolls.
“I dislike the fact that people are allowed to comment on my daughter’s skin color,” Khloe begins.
She laments: “but as soon as I comment kindly back and praise her for all that she is, the comment gets erased.”
Khloe is happy to engage with racist trolls, but is noticing that they’re a cowardly lot.
“If you have the courage to post your nasty criticism,” Khloe says. “Please allow one to defend or comment back.”
“it takes time for us to understand and to be that calm and compassionate,” Khloe continued in subsequent tweets.
“We all, as humans needs to grow and evolve,” Khloe writes. “Life lessons teach us that. I’m proud of us”
Khloe continues: “We need to learn to praise all skin tones/ethnicities! Our beauty is in our differences.”
Obviously, this is all good — and not the part for which she’s gotten into trouble.
“We can learn so much! So proud of every human who is confident in who they are,” Khloe says. “I’m in my 30s I think I’m just finding this confidence.”
“Everyone is entitled to their opinions and I’m not complaining about that,” Khloe affirms. “Please state your opinion but allow me to State mine.”
For the record, if she just wants to counter someone’s mean tweet, she could post her opinion with a screencap of their mean tweet.
“I try to put myself in their shoes,” Khloe shares. “And maybe they were brought up in a different type of household then I was.”
(Perhaps in an overtly racist household rather than one that clearly fetishized black men, which is a less hostile form of racism)
“So instead of shaming I try to educate,” Khloe concludes. “In our household we do not see color. We see emotion and action. We see love. We feed off of energy.”
One fan corrected her, tweeting: “It’s not criticism it’s racism.”
“Saying she doesn’t see color is wrong,” tweeted another. “And now she’s going to help educate? When has she ever struggled in her life???”
“It just bothers me!” confessed another. “If you raise your daughter to not see color then that kid will grow up thinking it’s not important to march for civil rights because everyone is equal.
That tweeter continued their explanation: “Only white privileged actually believes that!”
It would be nice if we all lived in a truly equal society. Unfortunately, we know that this is not the case.
“The Kardashians obviously see colour hence the black men they date/marry,” another pointed out.
That tweet continues: “Khloe has no idea how racist that comment is because she’s not educated to know that not seeing colour means she’s disregarding or denying racism on POC.
The tweet concludes: “which her daughter is currently experiencing.”
“You should definitely see color, Khloe. It is beautiful,” another writes.
“It is what defines how we perceive and experience, especially for people of color,” that same tweeter explains.
“And considering your daughter is brown, you shouldn’t teach her to be blind to that,” that person adds. “The world won’t be blind to it, and neither should she.”
Of course, while some were pleading with Khloe to understand why she was wrong so say this, others had … other thoughts.
“No one should fall for this,” insisted a conspiracy theorist.
“This is a Kardashian PR sympathy stunt,” the tweet claims. “No one has said anything about True’s skin color other than paid Kardashian bots.”
We would love to believe that this is true, but it is not. Racism and colorism are all too real.
“This is a distraction from Tristan,” the tweet theorizes. “Shame on Khloé for using her baby as a shield for her cheating boyfriend.”
While some people used the opportunity to dunk on Khloe, most of these comments have a real point.
To explain this a little more directly … “we do not see color” promotes a harmful idea.
First of all, it ignores that different people experience the world in different ways.
Children of color, and particularly black children, have to be prepared for how the world will treat them.
That needs to be acknowledged.
Even a child of extraordinary privilege can face racism that their white parent did not. Khloe needs to know this.
Second of all, “I don’t see color” implies that there might be something wrong with certain skin colors.
“I don’t see color” implies that you don’t see someone’s flaw. Skin color is, obviously, never a flaw.
You love someone for who they are, not in spite of it or because you overlook who they are.
Words matter, folks.
And Khloe isn’t just a celebrity — she’s now the mother of a biracial daughter.
Her words matter more than ever.

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard, what a couple, right?
And we don’t mean that in a good way.
Jill’s all right for the most part, we guess, but Derick … that’s where the trouble lies.
Because Derick is the worst.
He’s homophobic, and he also has a bizarre, disturbing fascination with Jazz Jennings, a lovely child with her own TLC show who also happens to be transgender.
At this point, we can’t even count how many times he’s talked about Jazz — who, again, is a child — in cruel, hateful ways.
He got so obsessed with insulting her that TLC fired him and Jill from Counting On last year.
And yes, Derick will swear up and down that they weren’t fired, he just decided their family needed to quit the show, but … come on.
If all of that wasn’t enough to prove his awfulness, he also attacked survivors of the Parkland school shooting more than once, because they were a little too liberal for his taste.
That’s what his problem boils down to, essentially: he’s extremely conservative, but in the dumbest, most offensive way possible.
Another thing about Derick is that he doesn’t seem to work, but whenever anyone brings it up, he’s quick to tell everyone that he has a job, thank you very much.
Except he’ll never say exactly what that job is.
A funny thing happened last month, though, and that funny thing is that Derick began attending law school.
He seems to be really into the whole thing, which is good — if he ends up being a lawyer, he could probably stop asking Duggar fans for money.
But in a new post she made on Instagram, Jill is still acting like he has a job.
Let it go already, guys.
Along with the above photo, she wrote “Love this man! He gets up early to head out before traffic gets bad, works all day, then comes home after most people and puts more energy to invest in our boys and me!”
“You’re still my fave!”
She added nauseating hashtags like “forever mine,” “man of my dreams,” “you’ve got my heart,” and “I’m so in love,” and “grateful wifey,” because she loves him, OK?
Here’s the problem.
They’ve both been so weird for so long about Derick working, and so defensive whenever anyone says he’s unemployed.
If he stays home to take care of the kids, that’s fine, you know? If they’re living off Duggar money, it’s all right.
But even though Derick is in law school, and even though he’s flat out said that these days, he’s either sleeping, in class, or in his school’s library, Jill’s still going on about how he “works all day.”
Yeah, law school is hard work, we imagine, but we all know what’s happening here.
And her Instagram follwers were quick to call her out.
Several of them asked if he was working, and one straight out told her “He doesn’t work though.”
“Full time college is not a job!” another explained. “Does it pay him? No.”
“His ‘job’ is law school,” someone else wrote, “and their only source of income is the excessive **link in bio** posts. He’s not remarkable in the slightest.”
For another explanation, one person theorized that “Jill uses ‘working’ to describe anytime Derick steps over the threshold into the world.”
Hilariously, another of Jill’s followers said that “She is so desperate for him to look good, you’d think he discovered penicillin.”
Like we said, it’s great that Derick is setting himself up for a good career by going to law school, and we’re sure it is hard work.
But why is it so insanely difficult for anyone in this family to admit that the man is unemployed?
We fell head over heels, madly, totally and deeply in love with Leighton Meester on Gossip Girl.
Blair Waldorf is one of the best characters in TV history and we will physically fight anyone who says differently.
But Leighton Meester says in a new interview that she actually didn’t love her time on this CW hit…
… and she explains in detail her reasons why.
“I would get there at 5 a.m. and leave at 8 p.m.,” the actress tells the latest issue of PorterEdit magazine. “A lot of days I didn’t see the sun.”
Don’t get the star wrong; she knows how lucky she was to work with Chace Crawford, Penn Badgley, Blake Lively, Taylor Momsen and Ed Westwick and to be on a series that lasted for many years.
(“It’s the best-case scenario that a show could ever go for six years,” she says. “It doesn’t happen often.”)
There were nearly just as many downs as there were ups during Meester’s stint on the iconic drama.
“I was young when I started Gossip Girl,” she expounds, detailing how having such a giant hit at this age is both a blessing and a curse:
“A lot more people were suddenly around and I was being looked at.
“If you don’t have the right perspective, you could definitely be confused by people being that nice to you or judging you for behavior that’s typical of a 20-, 21-year-old, making mistakes but having to make them very publicly,.
“I’m not haunted by that time, but it’s been interesting and helpful for me to look at it and examine it as an adult and go, ‘I don’t know if it was the healthiest environment.'”
Gossil Girl ran from 2007 through 2012.
The last couple seasons were trash, but those first few found the perfect mixture of comedy, drama, irony and tone.
You should really go watch Gossip Girl online and catch up if you’ve somehow never viewed the program.
“Everyone has their own journey, especially in their early twenties when they’re just figuring out who they are,” continues Meester in this interview.
“Because of the success of [Gossip Girl], I was put in a place where that journey was sped up. I had to figure it out quickly and with not a completely developed mind to discern between what’s real and what’s not, who I can trust and who I can’t.
“I got really lucky and was able to very early on find and stay friends with people who are true.”
Gossip Girl was a “special time.” Meester does not want to give the impression otherwise.
But does she miss it? That’s a very different question.
“I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It’s sort of a time capsule…
“I say this with nothing but love – it is like saying, ‘High school was an amazing time for you. Do you wish you could go back?’ And the truth is, it was so special and such a unique, amazing experience, but no, I wouldn’t wanna go back to it.
“I was a kid!”
And now that she’s grown up, Meester will be portraying a single mother on the new ABC sitcom this fall, Single Parents.
She’s come a long, long way.
