Kim Kardashian Pens Statement on Alton Sterling and Philando Castile

Trying to use her influence for good, Kim Kardashian has released a statement about the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

T he reality star may be known for her nude selfies, but that doesn’t mean she also wants to keep quiet when something important is happening around her. Kim released a statement regarding the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, as well as the general Black Lives Matter movement. She wrote about how she wants her own children to feel safe and valued as they grow:

“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. 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.”

Kim called for peace and doesn’t believe more violence is the answer. She also names out others who have lost their lives and calls for people to just begin using their voices to make 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. Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Sean Bell … and unfortunately so many more. Hashtags are not enough. This must end now.”

Kim even included links of support and donations for Alton Sterling and Philando Castile’s families in her piece.
