See the Powerful Message Kim Kardashian Posted On Black Lives Matter
Kim Kardashian took to her site today to voice her shock at the late killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, and the reality star has some legitimate points.
“This week we watched Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two innocent black men, get senselessly murdered by police officers. Like a lot of you guys, I watched the videos, and was appalled and completely heartbroken. I was left speechless, angry and numb,” she began.
Kimmy K shares two children with Kanye West, and she doesn’t want them to grow up living in fear of police brutality. “I want my children to grow up knowing that their lives matter. I do not ever want to have to teach my son to be scared of the police, or tell him that he has to watch his back because the people we are told to trust — the people who ‘protect and serve’ — may not be protecting and serving him because of the color of his skin,” she continued.
The E! starlet finished her essay with an encouraging for peace and change.The last thing we need is to fuel anger with more hate or violence, especially toward the many incredible police officers who risk their lives every single day to protect our families and communities. We must peacefully use the power of our voices and the strength of our numbers to demand changes in the judicial system so that brutality doesn’t ever go unpunished. It is our responsibility as Americans and as parents to create a safe future for our children. We must do something NOW. We must speak up until we are heard and real, effective changes are made,” she concluded.
We’re really astonished that Yeezy hasn’t been more vocal on this issue, considering he has a solid feeling on basically everything!
