Kris Jenner Wears Afro Wig: Racist Or Innocent?

Sometimes, I have to wonder how clueless the Kardashians are when they pull stunts like this. Kris Jenner decided to wear the same massive afro wig that Oprah wore for her O magazine cover, and she made the poor judgment to showcase it on her new talk show. I repeat, she decided to wear a massive afro wig on her show.

Kris Jenner Wears Afro Wig: Racist Or Innocent?

Kris Jenner also decides to add, “It’s probably Beyonce’s old hair that I’m wearing now.” I don’t necessarily think she meant it as offensive, but when do the Kardashians ever mean to be offensive? Their obnoxiousness has come to become part of their brand, and really, how much worse can the backlash against them get?

The fact that Kris Jenner thinks she can make fun of Beyonce is also hilarious, considering her daughter’s own tenuous connection to her. We all know Beyonce’s feelings on Kanye West dating Kim Kardashian, and this probably won’t make things better. But could Kris’ comment have been a slight barb against Beyonce?  Or was it just a joke, in which case it was in poor taste?

What do you think? Was she being deliberately offensive or was this just innocent fun? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

    Totally innocent. There is nothing wrong with a white person rocking an afro wig, the problem comes when they add black face O_O

      before i say anything i have to say I agree with that the kardasians are obnoxious morons, but to saying that a white woman is racist for wearing an afro wig is beyond ridiculous.What has the world come to when the race card is going to be used every time a white person refers to something associated with black people, sorry i should say “African American” before I am considered a racist. Would there be this much fuss made if Oprah decided to wear a blonde barbie wig, nope I think not.

      Put that card back in the deck girlfriend!

        You see here is the difference. You made the perfect referance for my example… “If Oprah wore a blonde barbie wig…”, it would simply be a new hairstyle (a bad one at that), but simply “a hair style”, just like Beyonce’ blond barbie wigs and weaves, “just a hairstyle”. Black people, or better yet “non-white” people, live, breath, and sleep western culture. It has become a default. When reference is made to black culture in such a way, it is only right that offense is taken. It is unfortunate that wearing your hair straight is the most expected and easily acceptable way of wearing your hair. Most black women naturally (without chemical or heat treatment), have a curly, coily or kinky hair texture– the royal “afro”. So many black women have camouflaged into this hair hype, displaying an aspect of their high levels of self hate. Oprah usually wears her hair straight, or weaved or wigged up, so when she decides to wear her hair in a ‘fro, it is for fun, not because she thinks it’s beautiful. I’m sure Oprah would not wear her hair in it’s natural state for an important event. Kris Jenner making mockery out of this is unfortunate. This was her confirming the unfortunate mentality that so many black women like Oprah and Beyonce uphold. A mockery of a broken piece of black existence. Does this mean Kris Jenner is a racist? Absolutely not, but this act was out of great ignorance. It was a joke that is way too expensive. The currency used to pay for this is called the brain (as paper) and morals, ethics, and respect as nickels pennies and dimes. It’s time we stop writing checks (disregarding ignorance) and begin paying in cash. Too many times, racist jokes are dismissed. In this instance, and so many more like it: the black card rightfully stays on the table, while the joker is put back in the deck, only to be used in the wisest of times, after purchased. Don’t be caught broke, or the IRS will find you…
