She’s taking her influence offline

Reality mogul Kim Kardashian is probably not the person you think of when you think about strong female figures espousing their beliefs about important social issues like gun violence. In the time that we’ve gotten to know her, she’s always seemed a lot more concerned about her style and makeup than what’s going on in the real world. But that may be changing.

Recent violence against black people at the hands of police officers struck a chord with Kim. She is of Armenian descent, but her husband is black and her children are bi-racial. And she doesn’t want to see a world where they might be attacked for the color of their skin, so she’s using her powerful influence to discuss the very real and very inexcusable violence that’s affecting so many Americans.
