Reality star and wife of Kanye West, Kim Kardashian sends an emotional message as she speaks on the recent killing of the two black men, Alton Sterling and Philando Castle.
The mother of two posted this on her website titled "#BlackLivesMatter"...see what 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. 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 areheard 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."
