Khloe Kardashian fears for daughter’s future as she issues statement on George Floyd murder


Khloe Kardashian has used her voice to speak out about the murder of George Floyd. The Keeping Up With The Kardashains star, 35, has begged her fans to educate themselves on the Black Lives Matter movement.

George, 46, was an unarmed black man who died after a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck for more than eight minutes as he told them “I can’t breathe”.

Officer Derek Chauvin has since been charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter and sacked from his job.

The video of George’s disturbing death has struck a chord with angry spectators all across the world, who demand justice and an end to racist attacks on innocent members of the black community.

Now, Khloe has shared her thoughts on the horrific incident and what it means for her daughter True, two.

The reality TV sensation, who shares her daughter with ex Tristan Thompson, has taken to Instagram to issue a public statement about her feelings as a mother.

Khloe addressed the tragedy that occurred in Minneapolis, Minnesota where George’s life was taken from him after he pleaded with Derek Chauvin to take his forceful knee off the back of his neck.
She started her statement by expressing her disgust by how George was killed.

“Like so many of you I am angry, heartbroken and disgusted by the murder of George Floyd.

“We have seen this too many times. Black people have been discriminated against, victimized and murdered for too long, and have shown superhuman resiliency in the face of constant adversity. It is incomprehensible to me that it’s 2020 and people continue to restrict, stereotype, damage and oppress people of color, and that racism is a constant reality.”

Khloe continued with her inspiring words by admitting that she is fearful of her daughter’s future in a world where black individuals are treated with such disrepect.

It breaks my heart to think about parents having to teach their children how to stay alive. No father should fear for his son’s safety every time he steps foot out the door every morning.

“No mother should live in fear like that, and as I think about my own daughter, my future children, and all of our children, I know that we have to create a better future for them. One filled with love, light, and compassion, not one filled with hatred and ignorance, and I vow to continue to teach my daughter every single day, and with every opportunity I get, to have love for others, regardless of the color of their skin, their sexuality or their religious beliefs.”

She continued: “People are not born racist, they are taught these beliefs, and we must do our part to stop this cycle and put an end to racism in this country.”

Khloe insisted that she is very aware of her white privilege in life, and has vowed to use her platform from now on to inspire and educate people from all walks of life about racism and loving one another.

“I continue to pray for equality for all, understanding and love, and I remain hopeful that together we can help get justice for George and his family, and for every black American who has been murdered, mistreated, abused and ignored. I will do my part. I know that I am privileged, in more ways than one, and I will use that privilege to fight for you.

“I will not let George Floyd’s name be forgotten. I will speak up, and speak out against discrimination, fearlessly and louder than ever before. I will stand with you, as together we fight for what’s right. I will vote for those who stand for equality and justice, and against racism, bigotry and corruption. I urge you to do the same.”

The proud mother-of-one finished off the poignant post by urging her followers to speak up and speak out against hate and racism wherever and whenever they can.

“This battle is not insurmountable, and any action, no matter how small, can be enough to make a difference, because it’s going to take us all coming together to demand change. Please do what you can to make your voice heard and to show compassion, educate yourself and teach others. Sign petitions, text and call, talk to your friends and family about what’s going on, protest, demonstrate, cry, scream and shout!”

“Change MUST happen! Black lives DO matter! We can, we must, and we will change the future.”
