Kim Kardashian Writes Emotional Letter in Support of Black Lives Matter

Following the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile at the hands of police officers, celebrities are joining and voicing their support for the Black Lives Matter movement. Kim Kardashian, for one, took to her website to pen a letter, which details the very personal reason she is advocating for the end of racial profiling and senseless killings.

In a heartfelt post, the mother of two explains the connection her children have to these tragic incidents.

“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.”

Kardashian also wants to ensure that people do not misconstrue her support for Black Lives Matter as a call for violent retaliation, like that which took place in Dallas just last night.

“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.”

However, unlike some of the stars who are commenting on the issue, Kim stresses that posting your grievances on social media is not sufficient. Rather, positive action is required. “Hashtags are not enough. This must end now.”

Whether you love Kim or love to hate her, she is right about one thing: the violence needs to stop.
