Why Gigi Hadid Feels "Too White" to Stand Up for Her Arab Heritage


“In certain situations, I feel–or I’m made to feel–that I’m too white to stand up for part of my Arab heritage,” Gigi continued. “You go through life trying to figure out where you fit in racially. Is what I am, or what I have, enough to do what I feel is right? But then, also, is that taking advantage of the privilege of having the whiteness within me, right? Am I allowed to speak for this side of me, or is that speaking on something that I don’t experience enough to know?”

Ultimately, Gigi predicts Khai “will grow up feeling out the way that she can or wants to be a bridge for her different ethnicities.”

“But I think that it will be nice to be able to have those conversations, and see where she comes from [with] it, without us putting that onto her,” she continued. “What comes from her is what I’m most excited about, and being able to add to that or answer her questions, you know?”
