This is not going to be a post bashing Kim Kardashian, or making a judgement about her obviously fake wedding (bazing!).
I honestly don’t care enough about Kim Kardashian to form a cogent opinion on her and her celebrity. Other smarter and funnier people have deconstructed her ‘brand’ (or just her, I don’t know anymore) much better than I ever could.
The only thing I really have to say about this whole divorce business is the prevalence of “Kim likes black guys” jokes that have been swimming around lately. Like SNL’s sketch (which is hilarious by the way) that said that Kris was only half the man Kim wanted because he was half black. Or the fake twitter account pretending to be Kris Humphries that deadset cannot stop making jokes like “In the week since announcing our divorce, Kim has been rammed senseless by more black dudes than the Colts’ offense”, or “People say Kim’s in hiding. I think she’s just catching up on all the black cock she missed out on while we were married” or “I’m painting my penis black in hopes that Kim will take me back :(“.
Now, maybe I’m being uptight (it wouldn’t be the first time) but is it really such a big deal that Kim has had sex with/dated black men? Is it such big news that these are the jokes people are coming out with? I don’t know if I’m missing some kind of point or if this is all part of the whole “white men being unable to deal with black men ‘taking our women'” thing (which I just read about here the other day). Then again, Kim is part Armenian so maybe this doesn’t fall into that category.
Fucked (by a black guy) if I know.
It doesn’t even really rankle me, I just think it’s boring and pointless.
Anyway, like I said, I might be missing something because I don’t really ‘keep up with the Kardashians’ (O-HO-HO!) but everytime I hear one of those jokes I just think…she’s fucked/dated black dudes…get the fuck over it.
Oh and then I feel like using phrases like “racial fetishism” because I can kind of be a wanker sometimes. But you get what I mean.
