Dallas Shooting: Kim Kadarshian a concerned mother of black child
Reacting to Dallas shooting, Kim Kadarshian, famous celebrity said, her “children will grow up thinking that their lives don’t matter.” Kim said she is deeply disturbed by the recent spate of violence following the Dallas shooting, reported New Zealand Herald. Kim said, she is appalled and completely heartbroken over the violent protests in US.
She said, “This week we watched Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two innocent black men, get senselessly murdered by police officers.” Their gruesome murders, shown in videos across US have made her speechless, angry and numb, admitted Kim.
Everyone has got the right to live with freedom and dignity, said Kim adding that “I do not intend to teach my son to be scared of police.’’ She added, law enforcement agencies who are supposed to “protect and serve” people, should do their duties irrespective of colour or race of people.
Kim Kardashian also shared her opinions on twitter and urged people to air their grievances peacefully. Writing on her official website, she noted that the “last thing we need to do is not to ignite anger with more hate or violence, especially towards many police officers who risked their lives 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,” noted the celebrity .
“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,” said the actress.
Finally, Kardashian urged her fans to contact their local legislators and voice the need for change and donate to Sterling’s and Castile’s families.
Kardashian’s husband Kayne West too communicated his views on the issue and shared a link to instagram video on Twitter with the caption “Alton Sterling’.
However, critics pointed out her father Robert Kardashian’s dubious role in the acquittal of O.J. Simpson, who was accused of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson.
