Kourtney Kardashian has vowed to inform her children about their white privilege. She's encouraging other parents to speak to their kids about the situation, too.

Last Thursday, Kourtney Kardashian took to Instagram to share a lengthy message about the often uncomfortable conversations parents have with their children.

The post was spurred on by the death of George Floyd two weeks ago at the hands of a police officer. Amid the protests, there's also been a bout of racial discussion in the nation. The post is found below.

KOURTNEY ACKNOWLEDGES WHITE PRIVILEGE

Kardashian, 41, accompanied her post with a relaxing photo of her and her oldest son, Mason, 10, whom she shares with her ex, Scott Disick. The pair also share Penelope, seven, and Reign, five.

In her caption, Kardashian admitted that talking about anything that might bring pain to a child is difficult. Yet, she noted, " I bare [sic] the responsibility to speak with my kids honestly and often about [racism]."

She continued: "I have to make sure they understand what it means to have white privilege and to take the time to learn and discuss Black History, beyond just one short month out of the year."

SHE URGES PARENTS TO DO SAME THING

Kardashian then urged fellow moms to join her in speaking with their kids about such matters so that, in the future, their children will not hesitate to talk to them about these things.

She called for no judgment, pointing out that parents are sometimes the ones who learn from or because of children. Although she gave herself credit, the reality star confessed that she had a lot to learn.

Kardashian then redirected her followers to her business page, Poosh.com, for more on how to be a better mother. Poosh has further donated to NAACP and The Bail Project.

KIM SPEAKS OUT AGAINST BRUTALITY

The mother-of-three joins a slew of other celebrities who have expressed or shown action in the movement against police brutality of blacks. Among them was sister, Kim Kardashian West.

The fashion mogul shared a short letter on her Instagram, saying how angry she is with what happened. "I am infuriated and I am disgusted," she stated.

Kim's husband, Kanye West, is doing his part as he set up a college fund for the late Floyd's six-year-old daughter, Gianna. He has also donated millions to the legal teams of Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor.

KOURTNEY NIPS PREGNANCY RUMORS

As the coronavirus pandemic and George Floydprotests continue, the Kardashian clan is still facing negativity from their naysayers. They're also receiving unwanted assumptions.

In May, Kourtney's follower rudely put forth the idea that she was pregnant with her fourth child after the star shared a bikini photo that showed a slight tummy pouch.

Soon after, though, Kourtney hit back with a reply. "This is me when I have a few extra pounds on, and I actually love it. I have given birth three amazing times and this is the shape of my body," she wrote.

It looks like Kourtney will be teaching her daughter a thing or two about self-love as well as what others have to go through because of their skin color. We commend Kourtney for her efforts.
