Beverly Hills, Calif.
— “I’m a great person,” former “The Real Lifewives of Southern California” star Kim Richards said Wednesday.
“I have no problems with anyone.
I am not a racist.
I love all people, all races, all genders, all walks of life.”
Richards, who played the bubbly and dashing Beverly Hills housewife and mentor to the Kardashians’ Kim, made the comments during a television interview with Bravo’s “The View.”
But she said she doesn’t think she’s racist because she’s not the only person who’s had a black experience.
“You know, I’m not a perfect person.
I don’t have perfect hair, I don’st have perfect skin, I didn’t have flawless skin, so I can understand why people have a problem with me,” Richards said.
“If you’re asking me if I’m racist, I’d say I don.
The reality TV star said she was raised in the Southern California area, but she’s since moved to New York City. “

People talk about how we’re not the same as other blacks, and they talk about, ‘You can’t relate to us.
But, she said, “I feel that I’m still very much a part of the African American community. “
We’re all very different people,” the 34-year-old said.
But, she said, “I feel that I’m still very much a part of the African American community.
I just feel like I’m part of that.”
Richards said she is open to working with groups of people, like the African-American community, to help them better understand their race and culture.
“We need to work together,” she told the host.
“Just like when you go to a restaurant, and you order a chicken and it’s white, and then you see a person of color there, and the waiter comes over and he says, ‘I’ll have a black man,’ and you’re like, ‘OK, that’s great.
You’re so much better than me,'” she said to the viewer.
“And then you go back and try it with the white person again, and it just doesn’t work.
It’s like, I can’t have this. “So I don
