Rob Kardashian has set off a flurry of black angst by claiming that baby Dream is pure Armenian, not black. The statement has garnered over 250 comments here. Most of them are quite instructive about how agonizingly blacks obsess over their hair straightness, their skin tone, and how much nobody likes them.

The baby’s mother, Angela Renée White, professionally known as Blac Chyna, is black. Rob Kardashian, the father, is half Armenian, the remainder being English, Scottish, Irish, German, and Dutch. Elizabeth Warren, Shaun King, and Rachel Dolezal have been asked to be the honorary godparents.
