This is absolutely horrible!
On Wednesday's episode of Kocktails With Khloé, Khloé Kardashian and guest Tia Mowry-Hardrict discussed the issue of racism in today's society.
The Sister Sister actress — whose father is White and whose mother is Black — remembers a situation where her mom was discriminated against by a real estate agent because of her race.

When she asked the KUWTK star if she has been personally affected by prejudice, she responded :
"Very much so… I was in an interracial marriage. I would never think to have to say, 'Oh, by the way — my husband's Black, so when he comes in, don't let your jaw drop.'"
She is of course talking about NBA player Lamar Odom.
From December 2011 to April 2012, the athlete played for the Dallas Mavericks where the couple faced even more bigotry.
"When I moved to Dallas was the first time that was thrown in my face… Racism is real."
We thank Tia and Khloé for sharing their stories, and opening up about such a sensitive topic.
