In the wake of George Floyd‘s death, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star took to social media to address recent events and take action.
“to everyone reading this and to myself: keep researching, reading, and educating yourself on how we can become better allies,” her post began. “I’ve been doing a lot of thinking these past few days and my heart has been so heavy. I’m angry and hurt just like so many. I will never personally understand the fear and pain that the black community go through on a daily basis, but i know that nobody should have to live in constant fear.”
Pledging to become an ally, Kendall continued, “I acknowledge my white privilege and promise I will continue to educate myself on how I can help. raging on platforms can not be all that we do in order to repair the system, we need to take real action, off of social media. this is a time to have those uncomfortable conversations with people and mainly with ourselves.”
In addition to her post, the model also participated in #BlackOutTuesday by sharing a picture of a black square to her timeline, captioning the image, “@blklivesmatter.”
Like Kendall, members of her famous family have used their platform to call for justice. On May 31, Khloe Kardashian wrote, “Over the last few days I’ve written and rewritten this so many times. Words feel empty, or somehow not enough, but I can’t sit silently. Like so many of you I am angry, heartbroken and disgusted by the murder of George Floyd.”
She then added that she worries for her and Travis Scott‘s 2-year-old daughter Stormi Webster. “I fear for my daughter and i hope for a better future for her,” Kylie continued. “My heart breaks for George Floyd’s family and friends. Don’t let his name be forgotten. keep sharing, keep watching, keep speaking out, because it’s the only way we can come together to help bring this much needed change and awareness. Rest In Peace, George Floyd.”
