The story of Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner, and Their Regret for Introducing their Daughters to Black Men

The famous Kardashian family is known for their preference for African-American partners, and the drama that is constant in their lives. 

It came as a surprise for many when the Kardashian family chose a major number of their partners to be of the African-American race, while America was struggling with racism in its societies.

In the book ‘The Kardashians: An American drama,’ the writer Jerry Oppenheimer shared the fact of the family patriarch Robert Kardashian, back when he was still alive, had defended his friend O.J. Simpson. This news is quite famous worldwide, and even a segment of the famous American Crime Story named The People Vs. O.J. Simpson was made.

Their history

In this biography, we get to see Robert’s friendship with an American football player, O.J. Simpson, from their youth, back when they were unmarried and lived in an apartment along with Tommy Kardashian, Robert’s brother.

Robert got to know about his friend’s struggles with alcohol and drugs, but they lived their lives and started their own families.

Robert married Kris Jenner in 1978 and had four children: Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, and Rob. O. J. was pretty close to Robert’s family and always gave gifts to his children. But Robert later expressed his regret at having Simpson over at his home and normalizing black people for his daughters.

Kardashian gave a statement about this matter, which many can identify as being racist. It was, “I know black people, I’ve known black people all my life, and I like to sleep with white women. O. J. is always bragging about the number of women that he and his friends go to bed. And my daughters are liberal, perhaps too liberal and have no one to blame, except me.”

Things took a hard turn after the death of Nicole Brown, O.J’s ex-wife, and Robert took a stand for his dear friend. This trial was nicknamed as the ‘trial of the century’ and created a huge scandal, with the defendant being a black man, and the victim is a white woman. Despite Robert’s efforts, O.J was convicted at the end.
