Kim’s Ordeal is NO Laughing Matter!

Today I’ve decided to delay my original post for today to talk about no other than Kim Kardashian-West.  As you guys know, I don’t talk about a ton of pop culture on here, and I’ve never talked about Kim.  However, I felt compelled to say something in light of the unfortunate circumstances she has recently faced, and those that feel her misfortunes are somehow a laughing matter.

As I’m sure you all have heard by now, the reality star was robbed at gunpoint while in a “secluded” apartment building in Paris.  According to her details of the incident, she was bound and manhandled, while in fear that she would be raped or even murdered.  Before the robbers had the opportunity to gag her to prevent her from talking, she allegedly begged for her life offering the robbers anything they wanted.   She begged for life for the sake of her children.  Not for her, but for her two kids.  In that moment, she was reduced from a high profile celebrity, to a wife and mother of two.  It’s this part that get’s to me the most.

“I’m Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired”

It’s been a few days now since the tragic deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and the five police officers in Dallas, and I haven’t posted anything on the site partially in an attempt to gather my thoughts.  If you stroll through my social media pages, you’ll will see short blurbs and videos expressing my outrage over what has happened within the last week.  However, I’ve yet to publicly state my peace on the matter.  And so here I am today.  Saddened by the state of this country, angered by moral hypocrisy and ignorance, and humbled to be among the living of an endangered people.
