Kim Kardashian’s recent, unusally enlightened statement about becoming more conscious about racism wasn’t random: it was actually sparked by a verbal racist attack against her biracial one-year-old daughter, North West, by a first class passenger on an airplane.

I am on a mission to make Pixel the Munchkin cat my pet, because we a match made in heaven. Pixel is only five inches tall from shoulder to paw, and at 4’11”, I’m not exactly what you’d call tall. She’s my pet soulmate! Munchkin, whose small size is due to a genetic mutation, is… READ MORE »
