Kylie Jenner says racism is a ‘pandemic’, fears for her daughter’s future

US reality TV star Kylie Jenner penned down a lengthy note after the killing of George Floyd and called racism as pandemic like the coronavirus.

Taking to Instagram sharing the quotes of Martin Luther King, Kylie wrote: “since watching the most devastating and completely heartbreaking video showing the murder of George Floyd earlier this week I haven’t been able to get his face and his words out of my mind. I’ll never personally experience the pain and fear that many black people around the country go through every day but I know nobody should have to live in fear and nobody deserves a death like George Floyd and too many others.”

She went on to say, “speaking up is long overdue for the rest of us. we’re currently dealing with two horrific pandemics in our country, and we can’t sit back and ignore the fact that racism is one of them. I fear for my daughter and I hope for a better future for her.”

"My heart breaks for George Floyd’s family and friends. Don’t let his name be forgotten. keep sharing, keep watching, keep speaking out, because it’s the only way we can come together to help bring this much needed change and awareness,” Kylie further said.

She also prayed for George saying “Rest In Peace, George Floyd.”
