Kim Kardashian: ‘I do not want to teach my son to be scared of police’

by

With the United States currently reeling from the spate of senseless violence which has taken place in recent days, celebrities have taken to social media in their droves.

Condemning the action of the police force as well as those those who disrupted a peaceful protest in Dallas by opening fire on those in uniform, Twitter has been awash with heartfelt statements of regret over the events unfolding in the US.

And following the shocking episodes of the past week, Kim Kardashian has penned a poignant letter on the impact she feels these events might have on her childrens' future.

"I want my children to grow up knowing that their lives matter," the mum-of-two wrote on her website this week.

"I do not ever want to have to teach my son to be scared of the police," she continued. "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."

Urging the public to turn their back on violence when addressing the issues which affect countless communities across the States, Kim continued: "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."

"We must do something now," she insisted.
