What do the 2016 election, Kourtney Kardashian and Andrew Cuomo visiting Cuba all have in common? They are all news headlines. When did American foreign policy and a family full of altercations become worthy of sharing space on the front page? Since the story of the Kardashian klan is the most American. This is fact. Robert Kardashian, the father of the infamous Kim Kardashian and her two sisters, embodies the ideal of the American dream and so do his daughters.
He came from humble beginnings and built an empire in the entertainment industry while continuing his profession as a lawyer. This drive and passion for success was instilled in his children. Look at Kim Kardashian, a household name, a woman who has no musical or acting prowess but is constantly the most talked about celebrity.
Why, you ask? Because she embodies the American dream. Her family name was of some affluence because of her father’s involvement in the O.J. Simpson trial. But she gave her family a real chance at stardom when she risked it all and put her private life out in the public eye. With the help of her momager and American values, the Kardashian family has now become a staple in American society.
