American socialite and entrepreneur, Kim Kardashian said she pursued a career in law partly because her children don’t stand a chance as good as white children if they ever get arrested.
The reality TV star stated this during a chat with Hillary and Chelsea Clinton on their Apple TV+ series “Gutsy”, while explaining the motivation behind her law degree.
She said her four children whom she shares with her ex-husband, Kanye West – North West, Chicago West, Psalm West, Saint West – were part of the decision.
She recounted how she failed the baby bar law exam three times before she finally passed it in December 2021 and said, “My kids were there every time I opened my results”
“They saw me cry the best tears of happiness that like, I did it. I mean, that is one of the reasons that I just fight so hard. Because my kids, if they were to get arrested, just don’t have as good of a chance, if I were to get arrested, if you were to get arrested.”
“Or my kids,” Chelsea added. “My white kids.”
In March 2020, Kim also stated that “raising four Black kids in this society” was one of the reasons she decided to study law.
