Kim Kardashian is a well-known media personality, socialite, model, and entrepreneur. Kim previously expressed her desire in opening a law firm just like her father. However, there is one more reason for her to seek a career in law. Kim recently disclosed that she is studying hard to protect her children in case they are arrested.
Kim Kardashian stated that one of the reasons she opted to pursue law was because of her children. She said that her kids didn’t stand “as good of a chance” as white children if they were to ever be arrested. Kardashian explained her choice to pursue law to Hillary and Chelsea Clinton on their Apple TV+ series “Gutsy.”
The entrepreneur stated that the choice was influenced by her four children, whom she shares with Ye, formerly known as Kanye West. “My kids were there every time I opened my results,” Kardashian said, referencing the “baby bar” law exam that she failed three times before passing in December 2021.
They saw me cry the best tears of happiness that like, I did it. I mean, that is one of the reasons that I just fight so hard. Because my kids, if they were to get arrested, just don’t have as good of a chance if I were to get arrested, if you were to get arrested.
“Or my kids,” Chelsea replied. “My white kids.” Kardashian and Ye have four children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. Kardashian told Janet Mock for Interview Magazine in 2017 that she was “very conscious” of the fact that she was raising a biracial Black daughter and that she discussed race with her children and her family’s children.
Kardashian has previously stated that her children inspire her legal career. In the March 2020 issue of CR Fashion Book, she stated that “raising four Black kids in this society” was one of the reasons she was pursuing law. “Our system is so discriminatory against Black and brown people,” Kardashian said.
I want to do as much as I can to make their lives easier.
Kardashian passed the “baby bar” exam in 2021, the first of two exams she needs to pass to become a lawyer, and she’ll eventually have to take the California state bar exam. Her legal advocacy has primarily focused on prison and criminal justice reform. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
