Kim Kardashian Calls Attention to Armenian Genocide

by at . Comments

Kim Kardashian made it clear a couple weeks ago: she isn't only about red carpet photos and fashion.

The reality star took major exception to her body being placed on the cover of Turkey's Cosmopolitan, considering she's of Armenian descent and that nation was responsible for acts of genocide against her people in the early 1900s.

Now, with Genocide Remembrance Day schedule for Sunday, Kim has taken to her blog and posted the following message:

"My family and I are incredibly proud of our heritage. My dad taught me a lot about Armenian culture, and I have a strong connection with my roots. Every year, I honor the memory of the martyrs who were killed during the 1915 Armenian Genocide. Even though so many countries around the world recognize the Genocide, the government of Turkey still denies it."

Approximately 1.5 million Armenians were killed by Ottoman Turks starting in 1915. Wrote Kardashian:

"Until this crime is resolved truthfully and fairly, the Armenian people will live with the pain of what happened to their families and the fear of what might happen again to their homeland. So out of respect for all those innocent people that died, I'm putting a spotlight on it today..."

I may not be a huge Kardashian fan for obvious reasons, but I do think this is genuine. The genocide is a major issue for the Armenians, and despite the fact that they're attention whores they do have a deep connection with that country. Besides, rosalie, do you realize how racist you sound? Not every armenian has a big nose, fyi.

I think she's being genuine...it's not the kind of thing you bring up to buy yourself airtime, more likely it's something people would feel uncomfortable talking about. Having said that, I don't quite see the point in her bringing it up, but hey, for some reason she feels strongly about it so why not say it.

What exactly is she standing up for? um for the truth. Turkey still denies the genocide and bribes and threatens the US every year to not recognize the genocide. Why don't they let it go? Like you said it happened 100 years ago. It not like the Romans denied it after they killed Jesus.
