Kim Kardashian takes a stance on Black Lives Matter movement

Over the last few days, people around the world have been taking a stance on the Black Lives Matter movement. With responses all around the nation, it’s no surprise celebrities have also weighed in on the issue. Kim Kardashian made several posts on both her Instagram and Twitter accounts regarding the issue.

Last week, she took to Instagram in a statement posting:

"“For years, with every horrific murder of an innocent black man, woman, or child, I have always tried to find the right words to express my condolences and outrage, but the privilege I am afforded by the color of my skin has often left me feeling like this is not a fight that I can truly take on as my own.”"

After the death of George Floyd, people across the globe began to use their voices and speak out against police brutality; with everything from protests, to donation links, to informative social media posts.

Instagram hasn’t been the only platform Kim has been utilizing. On June 4 she tweeted a statement regarding SKIMS, noting that “diversity, equality, and inclusion are at the core of my businesses and our community.” The brand created by Kim was designed from her desire to create shapewear that was available in various ranges of colors and shades, as well as underwear that tones and better enhances features.

West also tweeted about speaking on a podcast with Jason Flom regarding the Julius Jones case, along with amplifying the voices of NBA players Blake Griffin, Trae Young, and Russ Wess.

Kim and Kanye both have donated funds to help Breonna Taylor’s family and to help pay for legal fees and litigation costs. The couple has also established a 529 education plan to cover college tuition for Gianna Floyd, the daughter of George Floyd, and has donated to the family of Ahmaud Arbrery as well.

At the end of the statement on Instagram, Kim concluded, “I know that I can use my own voice to help amplify those voices that have been muffled for too long.”
