Khloe Kardashian sounds off on interracial dating

Khloe Kardashian responded to a fan's post to her app on Friday (28Oct16), and insisted she too gets angry that anyone still mentions the color of her boyfriend's skin.

A fan named Kelsey Wells wrote a note to Khloe on her app, fuming, "I am a woman who dates a man. Why can’t it just be that simple?” Wells added that she lives in America's South and is tired of being scrutinized when she goes out in public with her boyfriend.

"There are always stares, and people often make rude comments and gestures toward us,” she complained, adding, “I brush it off because I know the man I love is HUMAN.”

The Strong Looks Better Naked author, who has been dating Cleveland Cavaliers basketball star Tristan Thompson since July (16) seconded Wells’ sentiments and added her own two cents.

“Thank you Kelsey for talking about this important issue,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wrote.

“I don’t support racism or discrimination of any kind," she continued, "and I especially don’t understand why some people are still against interracial relationships.

“Like who the F cares anymore?!” she added. “It’s so crazy because we’re all human beings capable of love so why does skin color have anything to do with it?”

Kardashian, 32, is clearly entirely disinterested in skin color when it comes to romantic partners. She was married to former Los Angeles Lakers basketball star Lamar Odom from 2009 until their divorce was finalized in October (16), and subsequently dated Houston Rockets basketball player James Harden from June 2015 until February (16).

By all accounts, the current couple's relationship is going from strength to strength though Khloe recently insisted that they don't especially enjoy going out to celebrity parties or haunts. At an event for her Good American denim line on 18 October (16), she admitted that the couple is happiest spending time together in private.

“(We like to) just chill at home,” she told Us Weekly. “That’s really what we do, mellow. We’re not that exciting. I feel like people think I’m, like wild and like hanging from chandeliers.”
