Kim Kardashian said she’s heartbroken by what’s happened in America this week.
In a post on her website Friday, the 35-year-old reality star weighed in on the police shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. (RELATED: Dallas Cops Stay Calm While Arresting Protester Wearing BULLETPROOF Vest)
“I watched the videos, and was appalled and completely heartbroken,” Kardashian wrote. “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.”
Kardashian then referenced the sniper shooting of five officers in Dallas Thursday 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. 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.” (RELATED: Cop Survived Three Tours In Iraq Before Dying In The Streets Of Dallas)
“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.”
She included three links at the end of her post — one to contact your legislator, one to donate to Castile’s family and one to donate to Sterling’s.
