Kim Kardashian has revealed the extent of racism she has experienced since giving birth to one-year-old daughter North West.

The new mother spoke about a particularly upsetting experience while travelling with the adorable tot on the latest episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

"I fell asleep, I woke up to this woman screaming, “Kanye West’s baby!'," she began.

"The woman is screaming at my child, so I jump up."

Her momager Kris interjects and shares more of the story and speaks of the slur the woman used.

“She’s with a black guy, and that baby is black! And you need to shut that black baby up," Kris said of the encounter.

Little sister Khloe then responds with her typical feisty wit, saying: "‘I would say, hashtag, “I only like black c***!” That’s what I would say!’"

Last month, the reality tv queen spoke of her fears for little North, saying bigotry has become more obvious to her since becoming a parent.

“To be honest, before I had North, I never really gave racism or discrimination a lot of thought,” she wrote in essay.

“It is obviously a topic that Kanye is passionate about, but I guess it was easier for me to believe that it was someone else’s battle.

Meanwhile, the Kardashian clan were out in force last night to mark Khloe's 30th birthday with her boyfriend French Montana, who gifted her with a €35,000 watch.
