Kim Kardashian Refers to Daughter North West’s Hair as a “Crazy Afro” and People are Upset… Should They Be?

Avatar • May 3, 2015

Kim Kardashian is one of the most photographed woman in the world… so it was only a matter of time before her daughter’s appearance became a topic of discussion and debate. But some people are casting a skeptical eye at Kim after she herself referenced her daughter’s hair in what some feel is a derogatory manner.

On a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live the 34-year-old reality star discussed waking North up to see a baboon spotted in her neighborhood. She said;

I woke her up this morning, early, and in the morning she’s got this crazy afro. I just took her outside in her pajamas and her crazy hair, and she was half asleep, to see the baboon.

You can catch Kim making the comments around the 3:00 mark

Internet commenters weighed in on this, with some feeling it was simply a mother giving a lighthearted description of her child, and others accusing Kim of reacting poorly to her daughter’s blackness (Comments are from Clutch Magazine).

Not surprised, this is the same women who always said she wanted a baby that looks like half coffee and half milk and cut up her own ethic features within an inch of their life so what she considers crazy or wild isn’t that shocking. But I always find it funny that people who marry and have kids with someone outside their race aren’t happy about said features attributed to said significant other’s race when their own kids end up with them.”

No wonder that poor baby’s hair is always pulled into a tight top-knot. Wonder if Kim K would have called her hair ‘crazy’ if it was straight. I feel so sorry for the baby now.”

That’s what we’re upset about now? This is what we’re up in arms about? It obviously wasn’t said in a negative way. Also…she is this child’s mother. She may be a non-talent with an egotistical husband, but she is this child’s mother, not some stranger that we all have to protect her kid from. I know she’s annoying and you have the right to be mad about whatever you want. But is this worth it?”

As much as it pains me to side with this clan, I don’t believe she meant it in a negative way… If she wanted a child with straighter hair, she would’ve made one with a Caucasian! Again, knee-jerk! Pick your battles wisely. Smh…”

The interesting thing is that, just a few weeks back, gossip blog Hollywood Life referred to North West’s hair as “wild” and “unruly” on Twitter before changing the tweets due to pressure from readers. Perhaps Kim herself didn’t really mind.

Whatever the case, there is a lot of coded language surrounding North West’s hair that is indicative of how mainstream America views it. Curly hair can’t just be curly. It has to be crazy, wild, funky, unruly. Not to mention that it’s rarely ever described as pretty or cute.

Prior to this, the only comments I saw on this child’s hair were from people wondering why it was always slicked down. I find the photos here refreshing.
I don’t know what’s in that Kardashian’s head. I will say that people who love me taught me to feel bad about my curls and kinks.

I don’t think the photos shown above are reflective of Kim’s “crazy hair” statement. These photos show North’s hair in a styled arrangement. Kim was referring to North’s “bed head” look upon first waking in the morning.

Kim was just being “cutesy” when referring to her daughter’s hair. Much in the same way that nationally syndicated diaper commercial that showcases babies of nearly every ethnicity first waking in the morning with “crazy hair”.

I’m not surprised by her commentary because a) she has half a brain and b) she’s ignorant. Kim lacks the capability to understand how to maneuver language to describe her daughter’s hair bc she’s not black. Nor does she know much about having to deal with the idea of blackness and struggles. It’s something that she’ll have to learn just like any other parent of a biracial child. North’s hair should just be that her hair…there’s no need to say any kind of adjective before the noun…its North’s hair. Even if afro is associated with it “crazy” doesn’t need to… Read more »

Do you even know her? People sound more ignorant going after what they see or hear from the media without ever really knowing the person intimately.

Her choice of words describing her daughter should not be a problem for anyone considering that it was a general statement. She wasn’t being malicious or racist!!!

Nobody called her racist. If she were racist would she have married a black man……No. Interning at a few magazine companies during my college career has afforded me the opportunity to meet many different people and have many conversations about many things. And one thing I can PERSONALLY tell you is she’s not a genius but she is a sweet person. Let’s not assign superior qualities to people that don’t have them. Black hair is something she knows nothing about. She’s not a hair dresser, she’s not a celeb stylist, & and she’s not a black woman that has to… Read more »

I don’t think her comments are that serious .She knew what kind of hair North would probably have when she decided to have her .I think her comment comes from the fact that this is the first time she had to deal with hair like hers.

As usual the black community is overreacting, making themselves the centre of the world. She described plenty of other stuff as “crazy”. and lots of us, when we wake up, we think, OMG, my hair is looking all crazy. Kim probably does the same thing about her hair too. Stop trying to polemicize everything.

I mean most people have somewhat crazy hair when they roll out of bed even the straight haired ones. Some people comb. I have to spritz and fluff get rid of bedhead. The girls afro was probably half smushed. I think she was just saying she took the little girl outside without doing anything.

I don’t think anyone commenting negatively actually read/heard what she said. They just heard ‘crazy Afro’ and started running with it. All Kim said was that when baby North wakes up she has bed hair, finish. A woman with any type of hair that doesn’t sleep with a scarf (babies usually don’t) wakes up with crazy hair, whether curly, wavy or kinky. Y’all are just waiting for the next thing to be offended by.

Our hair is kinky and our curls go in directions that even we cant control, we see straight hair as limp, dull and lifeless, but is that something to start a war over?…no… and neither.. is this.… people… you are losing productivity over such a trifling matter, and… Read more »

North’s hair probably does look like a crazy afro when she wakes up if she’s just sleeping on it without tying her hair up in anyway. Plenty of people’s hair looks wild and crazy regardless of texture if they sleep wild. She wasn’t describing North’s hair during the day, she was referring to it as soon as she wakes up. We have to stop with this psychoanalysis, trying to make everyone out to get us. (By us I don’t just mean the black community, I mean every group who tries to be offended by every little thing)

There’s nothing wrong with the baby’s hair, nor the comment made by her mom. I’m not a Kim fan, but really? With all that’s going on, Mrs. West’s description of her daughter’s hair is her prerogative and folks should leave her alone.

Guest

people over reacted to this so much. She was just saying her daughter had crazy bed head! ya know its not like everyone wakes up with the perfect afro straight from bed so it probably did look crazy (fluffed on one side, flat on the other). she didn’t mean it as anything negative.

.….I honestly wonder which one people consider the real issue here: the words or the fact that Kim K said them.

Anyone who has ever had to watch a child overnight can attest to the crazy hair they have in the morning. Kids can be rough sleepers! Rough morning hair is a thing, y’all.

On the positive side, North West (I’m still slightly bitter over that name) is a little cutie! And her curls are equally adorable.

Let me put a different spin. I know where people are coming from when they say it was offensive. Though I dont feel it was that bad. However we have had situations where naturals will talk about negative comments coming from their parents regarding their hair. I think its not a bad comment in a way but it will be interesting to see how she treats/talks about her daughter’s hair as she gets older. As someone who has felt the negativity from my own family regarding my hair I do think that she has to be careful in how she… Read more »

My daughter and myself have curly, medium density hair. I refer to it as a “bush” merely because its so different to other peoples hair and we love it!! People love our hair but I personally would not refer to it as cute. I think its wild and full of personality. “Cute” does not cover it.

Kim Kardashian isn’t the most liked person in the world, and although I’m not a huge fan, I don’t think she meant anything by it. My daughter is natural and she isn’t biracial and I remember the morning I woke her and realized I couldn’t just brush her hair anymore. Her hair was like little North, and I referred to my baby’s hair to the hair of a treasure troll! Lol, it was sticking straight up! That didn’t mean I thought something bad about my baby’s hair or anything. I was describing it, and I think that’s all Kim was… Read more »

Chile, if those locks are what is deemed “crazy afro” then Kim should spend a day my tough African tresses smh Cannot say I am really surprised. Growing up the only girl with a “crazy” afro in a white family obsessed with beauty and surgery, that child might suffer from major self-esteem issues. I just hope that she can find some strong black female role models. Kanye is so far up his own arse these days, I doubt he cares about such things. Fix it Jesus.

She didn’t say anything wrong. Who hasn’t referred to their hair as “crazy” or said “Look at this “mess” on my head”? It’s hair. My hair looks crazy sometimes in the morning when I wake up. No big deal. She clearly loves her child and anything she says is going to be scrutinized to the 100th power. It wasn’t that serious. Distractions, distractions. Some people need to find real issues to upset over. This isn’t one of them.

Simone Freeman

Let this one go. I don’t think it was meant in an offensive way. We all have called or referred to our own hair as crazy or wild. Crazy and wild do not reference race or hair type rather a hair state. Everything related to textured hair is not meant offensive. This is the child’s mom and she thinks her hair is wild in the morning and perhaps it is! If I don’t sleep with a bonnet when I wake up my hair could be called crazy and wild. Fact not an insult.

It is ridiculous to even speak about this as this is a mother describing her child. There was no abuse done. BTW NW may have slightly curly hair now, but as she gets older, her hair will be straighter due to her genes (it’s inevitable). Ex: Grace Gealey (of Empire), Halle Berry, Vanessa Williams, Alicia Keys, etc. I, myself am mixed and “had” the EXACT type of hair as NW and with proper hair care, the natural texture of my hair and my genes, it became less curly and (most importantly) more manageable.

The most important thing to note is the mention of coded language. We don’t have to get up in arms, but when people refer to unkempt bed head as a “crazy Afro”, they imply that Afro textured hair and Afros themselves are wild and unruly. That’s what keeps people thinking my twist out is messy or unprofessional. We tend to think of people’s comments as harmless or accused people of overreacting, and while I’m not going to mull over it, I pay attention. A polite correction is in order, but that’s really it.

It’s certainly not a reason to be angry with her, but the statement did kind of make me cringe. Of course, she doesn’t mean it in a negative way people never really do. But Black women and girls endure all kinds of comments that “aren’t meant in a negative way” and they are still hurtful. It’s not that people tell me my afro is ugly it’s that they fawn over my hair a little too much when I straighten it or when an adult would innocently ask “now isn’t that so much better?” after brushing my hair into tight little… Read more »

Not necessarily — Afro specifically refers to Africans and their hair. that’s where the name came from. It was a hairstyle mostly worn by black activists and Afrocentrists in the 60s and 70s. If you’re linking Afro to “untidiness,” that *is* a racial thing. And no straining necessary.
People are more upset about the word “crazy” as far as I understand it.

Thank you for commenting. I was so used to seeing Afro-style hair from back in the 70s, when it was something so many black people wore, that I simply saw it as a common black style of hairdressing, and didn’t associate it with untidiness. If you add “crazy” to it, I can see why someone’s feelings could be bruised, but it still sounds innocent-enough to me. On the other hand, I’m not the recipient of the comment, so it might be very different under other circumstances.

Silly people! When we first wake up in the morning, a LOT of us have crazy hair, afro or not! I know my mane of curls is all kind of lopsided, tangled and frizzy right off the pillow. After I’ve washed, untangled and moisturized my hair, it’s still an afro, but just not crazy anymore. I’m thinking that Kim’s statement if merely reflective of that–slept-on hair–not a comment on blackness or whatever.

Since time began, black women have been judge‑y about kids hair being “combed.” It’s who we are. In this instances, let’s look at the source. Really? What do you expect from Kim K? Of course, that baby’s hair will be called “wild” and “unruly” because it is, to her. But know there are other mamas who say the same thing about their daughter’s hair. It happens.

Side note: I can’t believe I’m defending Kim K. Is hell frozen?

She’s racist, so is her entire family. They exist to remove BM of their coin, that is all.

Sorry boo, it simply doesn’t apply to your daughter, lovely as she is.

Many or most times its a weird combined energy that just offers the kids advantages but doesn’t change race relations.
