AceShowbiz - Amid protests for real justice for black people, Kourtney Kardashian took to her Instagram account to talk about the importance of teaching her kids about their white priviledge. In the Thursday, June 4 lengthy post, the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star shared that she has the "responsibility" to raise awareness about racism to her kids.
"As a mother, there is a natural instinct to protect my children from anything that might make them feel sad or unsafe," Kourtney wrote alongside a picture of her and son Mason, whom she shares with ex Scott Disick. "The pain and suffering inflicted by racism is not a thing of the past and I bare the responsibility to speak with my kids honestly and often about it, even when the truth is uncomfortable."
"I have to make sure they understand what it means to have white privilege and to take the time to learn and discuss Black History, beyond just one short month out of the year," she added.
The 41-year-old star later encouraged "other mothers to join me in using this as a learning lesson for our children, to allow our children to feel comfortable enough to come talk to us about anything." She went on saying, "Allow conversation without judgement, and learn from our children too. We don't know it all."
"My children sometimes ask questions that I may not know the answers to, so we explore them together," the mother of Mason, Penelope and Reign Disick explained. "I've felt like I've always been on the right side of this, but I have a lot to learn and want to educate myself even more, so that I can be a better mother, a better auntie to my nieces and nephews, a better friend, and a better person.

Kourtney gained praises for the post with someone writing, "This is amazing and YOU are an amazing mother!" Someone else raved, "And as they grow strong from your love, they teach you as mine have taught me. It’s their world now, and we need this next generation, more than ever before!"
Echoing the sentiment, one user added, "Your the best mother and nobody else can ever say different." Meanwhile, a person stated, "Has been and alwaya will be the hottest out of the Kardashian sisters."
