Kim K pens emotional lengthy note on Black Lives Matter

Updated: Jul 09, 2016 19:16 IST

Washington D.C. July 9 (ANI): In the wake of multiple shootings that took place last week, Kim Kardashian has penned a lengthy note about the Black Lives Matter movement.

Kardashian,36, took to her blog and express her frustration in a post that was likely written prior to the tragedy in Dallas, where five police officers were killed and seven injured, plus two civilians, during a peaceful protest, reports E!Online.

She wrote, "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," she added.

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star urged Black Lives Matter activists to demonstrate their feelings in a peaceful and nonviolent manner.

She said, "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."

She continued, "Hashtags are not enough. This must end now."

Kardashian concluded the post by listing off the names of black people, Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Sean Bell among others, killed by police officers over the past couple of years. (ANI)
