Social Media Activist Kim Kardashian West Arrives at White House to Discuss Prison Reform with Reality Show Star

Kim Kardashian-West made it to the White House to speak to President Trump about prison reform. No, you’re not in the twilight zone…

The social media activist met with senior advisor Jared Kushner, the president’s son in law, who apparently is interested in prison reform ONLY because of his father’s year spent in federal prison. Not the thousands of black men & women incarcerated but his white father.

Kim is hoping to gain clemency for 63-year-old Alice Marie Johnson, a first time offender who is serving a life sentence.

Before heading to the White House Kim Kardashian had this to say on Twitter.

The reality star spent an hour at the White House on Wednesday in a meeting with the president’s son-in-law that also included a conversation with Donald Trump about a first-time drug offender and great-grandmother serving a life sentence in prison.

Lawyer Brittany Barnett told DailyMail.com that Kardashian planned to ask President Trump to grant Alice Johnson clemency in an anticipated face-to-face. via DailyMail

A quick turn around considering the reality show star was just responding to Rhymefest that she would take over Donda House and let her children run it. I’m guessing Kim’s Phoneix University classes on activism have been paying off or Kris Jenner rushed the meeting to this week to save face.

Hopefully, they got something accomplished…

All of This is Yours, The Series, Takes Off!

mm

Published

on

Discover the world through the eyes of the children who live in its four corners!

In an era plagued by hatred and hyper-nationalism, an ebullient teacher takes young viewers on a global journey. Along the way, she’ll share the ways that children in vastly different cultures live, learn and experience their world. Costa Rica to Capetown. 13 episodes/13 international destinations. Adventure, learning, hilarity and joy ensue in the global community.

Short Summary

All of This Is Yours provides young audiences with the educational tools they need to begin creating the world they want to live in as global citizens through an episodic journey filled with unique cultural experiences and practical lessons that children can use in their everyday lives. The campaign will raise money for a pilot episode which will take Robin to San Jose Costa Rica where she will meet Amanda, a young girl ready to share her life, and her extended family, with the world.

Robin Hancock has been an avid traveler all her life. While working on a doctorate in education, she got the idea to create a series that blended her love for travel with her passion for early childhood ed. Her life’s work examines the ways that identifying as a global citizen can empower children to walk in the world with confidence, pride in their communities and awareness of their positions as members of a large and vibrant global community.

This is Robin’s passion project and her heart’s desire for the last ten years has been to make this series a reality. Your contribution to the creation of the pilot episode will contribute to a field desperately in need of new and exciting voices. No gift is too small (or too big)!!

The Impact

Nowhere on television is there a travel series that is  1) hosted by a woman of color 2) geared towards educating children and 3) focused on teaching global citizenship. The travel genre remains a deeply segregated space and very few series in the genre are created intentionally for children. This series will counter the negative messages of division and hyper-nationalism that are so prevalent in our society. Our goals for the series are to:

– Provide the (near absent) representation of central characters of color in the travel show genre.

– Provide a travel series that is geared towards young children in a genre that is tailored almost exclusively to adults.

– Create an educational platform for children to learn about the world through observing the experiences of other children like them who live in and negotiate that world as well.

– Create a context where children are learning the primary tenets of Global Citizenship early in life.

– Challenge the messages of separation and division currently being taught through our government, media and social spaces.

Ways You Can Help

Please make a LOT of noise about this project. You can do that in a number of ways:

  • Post this on all of your social media pages
  • Circulate it to ALL of your friends and social networks
  • share in your frequently visited spaces

on

Broward Co. Sherriff Department pronounced controversial rapper XXXTentacion dead today in Miami. Witnesses say that he had no pulse at the scene. The shooting happened while he was shopping for motorcycles and things took a turn for the worst. People on the scene reported seeing a black SUV leaving the scene of the crime.

According to the dispatch call the suspects were described as 2 black males wearing hoodies, and the shooter was wearing a red mask.

The car has been confirmed as a black Dodge Journey, with dark tint and black wheels.

2:14 PM PT — Witnesses told cops a Louis Vuitton bag was taken from XXX’s vehicle.

1:57 PM PT — Additional dispatch audio has revealed XXX was transported as a “Level 1” trauma patient … dispatchers described him as comatose. via TMZ

Audio of the 911 dispatch has been obtained by TMZ.

XXXTentacion was experiencing a lot of commercial success even with his troubled past being brought to light. In an interview with Grandmaison’s YouTube podcast, No Jumper, we were given a bit of insight into just how violent his past really was. In this interview, the rapper details how he almost killed his cellmate who he assumed was gay because he was staring at him.

XXXTentacion: So I’m like strangling him, and he’s like leaking, leaking, leaking type shit, and I’m strangling him so he doesn’t scream
 Don’t think I’m trying to be clichĂ© or a fucking weirdo when I say this, but I was going crazy. Like, I smear his blood on my face, in my hands, I got it in my nails, bro, I had it all over me.

Grandmaison: War paint. That’s tight.

 

A year ago he tweeted this.

“Next time make sure you kill me so I can’t talk shit.”

 

 

 

 

WARNING GRAPHIC VIDEO AHEAD!

 

 

 

Will you be mourning his death?
