Kim Kardashian has decided now is the time to try and use her fame to better humanity. (Better late than never, right?) Giving birth to North West has apparently woken Kim up to the fact that racism still permeates our society, and she wants to do something about it. The first step, of course, is to blog about it. Let's hear what Kim had to say.
Kim wrote on her blog:
I never knew how much being a mom would change me ... seeing through my daughter’s eyes the side of life that isn’t always so pretty.
To be honest, before I had North, I never really gave racism or discrimination a lot of thought. It is obviously a topic that Kanye is passionate about, but I guess it was easier for me to believe that it was someone else’s battle. But recently, I’ve read and personally experienced some incidents that have sickened me and made me take notice. I realize that racism and discrimination are still alive, and just as hateful and deadly as they ever have been ... I want my daughter growing up in a world where love for one another is the most important thing.
So the first step I’m taking is to stop pretending like this isn’t my issue or my problem, because it is, it’s everyone’s ...
It's nice to hear Kim finally use her celebrity to talk about something besides fashion. Someone with 20 million Twitter followers should spread more information than belfies of her ass.
Granted, there will be people who will point and laugh at Kim's attempts to be taken more seriously. And, no, Kim Kardashian will never be Rosa Parks. But she can make her own small attempts to make the world a better place for biracial Nori.
Do you think Kim should be talking about more serious topics?
