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 agree. I read the History and hoe the United States entered WW1 in 1917 after Germany and close related attacks happened to the USA. It was very terrible. I am sure you see that. So why do you continue to make porn and date people like Kris Humphries. ISn't that pretty terrible. Don't you know Chris Paul left the Net's to get away from the Moron, and the Bobcat's had to finishing whipping this guy and his entire team becasue he is so stupid? Whatever Kim, why don't you believe in the way things are really run ion hte USA, instaed thinjk that you are with someone is something that they are not. Yoiu just ask for trouble all the time, "CHILL OUT!" please! OMG.

I don't like her nose job(s)?! Frankly, I thought she looked awesome when she looked more Armenian with a more prominent, ethnic-shaped nose. It looked really wonderful on her! But, no woman should be valued solely on their looks, as she is daily. It is cruel to dehumanize her and pressure her to obtain generic features. She (and her nose) looked fine -even extraordinary- before! That's one of the things that made her so pretty and exotic-looking. It's too bad about the silly pressure that she's under daily. And she's right to make a point about history, in honor of her family, too.

Agree to both of the comments! Plus Armenians were not that only victims of genocide so get over it!! Others have...

The genocide was almost 100 years ago??? So what exactly is she standing up for? No one involved in that is even alive anymore. Just saying, how is not letting something go going to make anything better? It's like saying that I am still pissed off at the Romans for what they did to Jesus.

Wonderful, articulate statement. Wondering who wrote it though. Kim does not write her own blog so I'm giving credit to the un named person who did.
