[Photos] Kim Kardashian As ‘Black’ Jackie Kennedy — See How She Pulled It Off

Posted On : 08/30/2017

Kim Kardashian was bold for this one. However, no one can deny that she made it look good. Well, you know “patriots” are condemning her.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK — Kim K. is no stranger to controversy. However, this one is getting mixed feelings.

If you want to be mad at her, you’ll probably find it a bit difficult.

During a photoshoot with Interview Magazine, Kim Kardashian-West posed as former U.S. first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, also known as “Jackie O.”

However, she didn’t want to channel the old Jackie. Rather, Kim K. wanted to take it up a notch for her daughter, North West.

So, she produced a powerful ‘Black’ image of Jackie Kennedy…

Of course, that turned people on their heads for sure.

During the interview, journalist Janet Mock told Kim that she’s often challenged the standards of beauty, making it “a bit browner…bronzer…curvier.”

I wonder how conscious you are of raising a mixed black girl in the world?” Mock asked Kim after the statement.

In response, Kim says she’s “very conscious.” She continues as follows.

“Kanye always has his family around and people who look like my daughter — that’s important to me. She’s obsessed with her curly hair, and if she finds someone who has the same hair, she runs to them and is like, ‘You have curly hair like me?’ And we get to talk about it. We also talk about it with my niece Penelope, because she and North look really different, but they’re best friends and they’re together all the time.”

We want to raise our kids to be really aware,” Kim notes.

“I think that’s all you can do. The more you talk about things and keep them out in the open, the more they won’t be taboo. Kids are already so open. They say anything. So if you educate them, they feel like they have this knowledge and then they feel empowered.”

However…there’s backlash…

One commentator also noted, since Kim Kardashian darkened her skin color to match North’s, she’s engaging in Blackface.

But CERTAINLY, they can see Blackface now when she’s portraying a powerful historical figure as a Black woman — even if Kim, herself, isn’t Black.

You can’t say she didn’t pull it off.

Yet, part of the controversy is: does that make it okay?
