What Keeping Up With the Kardashians can teach America about interracial marriage
A recent episode of the E! reality show offered an important window into little-discussed prejudices faced by interracial couples

Keeping Up With the Kardashians is generally viewed, at best, as a guilty pleasure. For those who don't treat the reality series as appointment viewing, the ninth season has recently seen the various members of the Kardashian clan contend with health problems, divorce, and marriage.
While all those situations are relatable to the average viewer, most would hesitate to call the Kardashians "typical." Khloé's split from husband Lamar Odom has been carried out under the watchful glare of the paparazzi. Kim and Kanye West happily tied the knot — after their rehearsal dinner at the Palace of Versailles.

But in the midst of all the celebrity glamour, Kim and mom Kris Jenner encountered something different in a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. As the duo attended an impossibly glitzy opera ball in Vienna, they were interrupted by a man in blackface. He approached Kim, saying, "It's me, Kanye!"

Kim doesn't seem fazed. But the incident leaves her genuinely disturbed. Back at the hotel, she changes out of her gown as Jenner regrets "allowing her to experience such nonsense."

Unfortunately, it's not the end of the prejudice Kim experiences; on a flight shortly after, a woman screams at Kim and her daughter: "She's with a black guy, and that baby is black."

The episode ends with Kim writing a blog post reflecting on what she experienced. Her thoughts offer a stark contrast to the empty-headed image of Kim that prevails

The article should have been entitled "What keeping up with the Kardashians can teach WHITE America about IR marriage!" ;)
