Recently, Kourtney Kardashian announced that she and boyfriend Scott Disick are expecting their second child. Although the couple hasn’t been trying to add to their little family, the eldest Kardashian beamed when she told the press (of course) little Mason was going to be a big brother.
The timing of this announcement couldn’t be better. Kourtney just launched a mommy blog to discuss parenting, kids fashion, and now…pregnancy.
While the media goes ga-ga over yet another bit of Kardashian news, I’m left to marvel at how white celebs (and by extension, white women) are critiqued about their out of wedlock pregnancies in comparison to black celebs.
When Nia Long announced she was expecting baby number two with her boyfriend NBA baller Ime Udoka, comments on black blogs went crazy. Some questioned why she was being “glorified” for having (another) kid out of wedlock, despite her ability to take care of her children and their fathers being present.
I wonder will Kourtney suffer the same sort of criticism?
I’m willing to wager she won’t, but I guess that’s yet another side effect of the black tax.
