According to Teen Vogue,
When asked by his sister, Khloé, if he’s scared of being a dad, Rob responded by saying:
“I can’t wait to have an Armenian baby.”
In turn, Khloé says: “And probably a little bit black,” reminding him that he’s not the only one responsible for Dream: Blac Chyna is the baby’s mother, therefore Dream is biracial.
However, instead of acknowledging this point, Rob replies by saying:
“It’s gonna be an Armenian baby” and later adds, “Let’s not make this a race war.”
Race can be a complicated subject, especially when it involves biracial children. The one-drop rule to which many of us still adhere, often forces biracial children to choose black, even if they don’t always “look,” the part. In this instance, Rob seems to want to diminish his daughter’s black heritage and focus solely on her Armenian side. This, of course, begs the question: If you are biracial can you choose the side with which you identify, or can your parent choose for you?
What do you think of Rob’s assertions? Sound off below!
