Kim Kardashian reportedly helped negotiate the release of 17 prisoners over the last 90 days. Kardashian helped the prisoners gain their freedom under the First Step Act which was signed into law by President Donald Trump on December 21, 2018.

Kardashian, 38, is starring in a new documentary in which she explains her personal crusade against mass incarceration of low level drug users and traffickers.

Kardashian's crusade, called 90 Days of Freedom, was launched by her lawyer Brittany K. Barnett and MiAngel Cody of the Decarceration Collective.

She most recently helped to gain the release of a Miami man who spent over 22 years behind bars.

"We did it again! Had the best call w/this lovely family & my attorney @msbkb who just won release for their loved one Jeffrey in Miami," she tweeted. "He served 22 years of life sentence for low level drug case. He served too much time but it gives me so much joy to fund this life saving work."

Each of the 17 inmates was serving life terms for non-violent drug offenses. Kardashian, Barnett, and Cody say this is only the beginning of their crusade to free drug offenders who were sentenced under California's restrictive three strikes law.

Last year, Kardashian successfully petitioned President Trump to pardon Alice Marie Johnson, a non-violent drug offender who was serving life in prison.

On a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the former adult film star who is now studying law said she wanted to focus all of her efforts on prison reform.

"It's kind of crazy because I'm learning it all as I go," said the mother-of-three. "I spend more time on this than I do anything else. It's insane but it's so fun to be around people that are super smart and get it and want the same thing."

Kardashian and her husband, musician Kanye West, are expecting their fourth child - a boy - who is due to be delivered by a surrogate. They are already parents to North West, Saint West and Chicago West.

    She's beginning to use her fame for something good. I admire that about her. Keep up the good work Kim.

  • T Willis

    I’m glad Yeezy has had a positive impact on Kim.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Good job Kim? I will give credit where it’s due.

  • Topic Influencer

    Its why I said last post, a distant homegirl of mine named Kim. She keep this up and I might actually you know start to like her. Keep pushing Kimberly. Kudos to you

  • Mrs.Meenie

    Much respect to Kim??

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. But I expect there'll be some "negative Nellys" who will say she's just doing it for publicity, to boost her image, or whatever. The Kim-hatred is pretty strong out there. As for me, I feel like good deed is a good deed, no matter who it comes from.

  • Soda

    Good that sentencing is being corrected but I wouldn't consider this prison reform, which is greatly needed.

    BLM................... 0

    I told you all BLM was nothing but a Black LGBT front organization financed by a billionaire Jew to get blacks hyped up and emotional to vote, democrat. Black folks have been bamboozled by democrats with symbolism and no production for the last 50 years

  • MoniquetheGeek

    As much as I don't care for this family, good for her. Good way to use her fame to help those in need.
    And kudos to everyone else out here doing something to free these men and women (<--before someone comes in here and says so and so is doing xyz too).

  • EMILY POST

    Hey that woke spirit ... lol gets you headlines.....
    The first step act some people can get out prison reform ... Donald Trump prison reform plan is some help to decades of black targeting mass incarceration...

  • Elevated Soul

    Salute to Kim West for being a real advocate for non violent offenders serving harsh sentences.

    Salute to President Trump for initiating the First Step Act for real prison reform.

  • Elevated Soul

    Truth!!!!Black Lives Matter is just an offshoot form by the same globalists that form Occupy Wall Street.

  • Clopretty

    She wanna be invited to the cook outs so bad!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    As much as this is a good thing I still feel like Kim is just trying to pander to the black community for approval...Im telling yall there is a reason why she is now tryna get her "justice for all" on...that woman and her momma always have a motive...Wouldn't be surprised if she's prepping for Kanye's presidency bid in 2020...Chile...

  • Parent

    Alright Kim, you alright in my book. Still a narcissist but you doing a good job.

  • Ryan
  • HelloToni

    What if that was exactly what she is doing. Do you think the former inmates or the family's care what her motive is.

  • HelloToni

    Pres Trump passed some very important legislation for federal prison reform. Yes I was shocked too.

  • MsPam

    Ms. Sandra did you post about Tiffany Haddish passing fried chicken at the Met Ball?! ?????

  • Itzgoingdown2

    Pandering is also exactly what all these other politicians and black celebrities do. Most give nothing back to the black community.

  • Logan Roberts

    Who knows Kim might have to fight for Trump being behind bars one day lol.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Not true...depends on what city your in maybe....I dont believe in doing anything unless its for the benefit of my family (who dont commit crimes) so they dont get booked for years at a time...

  • Elecktra

    Please. Negroes are so easily impressed by a white savior. Anyone who knows the backdrop story to how we got here with Kim Kardashian exploiting black justice reform for clout knows the deal.

    President Obama sent criminal justice reform legislation to Congress in 2015 that would have not only reformed current sentencing laws, but also would have granted release for low level drug offenders who were impacted by these excessive drug sentences. But your boy Mitch McConnell (REPUBLICAN) did everything he could to obstruct the bill and it never got pushed thru the Republican House majority. Even still, Obama exercised executive authority to grant clemency for nearly 2000 inmates imprisoned with excessive sentences for non violent crimes. More than any President in history.

    Now these same mofos come thru 2 years later, repackage Obama’s legislation and pass it for Trump to brag about what he has done for the “blacks”. And this is the ONLY reason that Kim K jumped on a horse that is already running. She isn’t negotiating anybody’s release. The organizations that she is donating to are doing the footwork and they are targeting inmate cases that they know they can win releases for under the First Step Act. Notice how they are going after the low hanging fruit-men who have already been incarcerated for 2+ decades under a low level offense. We can all give her credit for funding a cause, but don’t sit here and act like she is the machine behind the work. This is just another business deal to help her career as far as I am concerned.

  • missmiami305

  • T Willis

    If “we” benefit then why does it matter? Would you feel better if those 17 ppl remained locked up for non-v!0lent offenses until a “respectable” black person comes along to negotiate their release? Lol my goodness let it goooo... she’s doing good and she’s found a niche that’s beneficial to black ppl...

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Pandering ? She’s doing a helluva job , because she dates practically only black men , most of her close friends are black. Hate or love her, she’s doing more than your favorite these iG socialites. Ciara out here paying for photo oops . Serena with a white guy and bashed dating black men , despite dating Brett ratner who has sexual assault cases . Jorydyn Woods gets love from the black community but has no black friends. Monica has turned into an IG fashion model. Cardi B admitting to drugging men , called black women roaches , and acting a fool at the met Gala . I mean seriously you can hate her and I admit she’s an attention whore, but at least she’s monetizing it and doing some good , even there’s an agenda behind it.

  • T Willis

    What could be taken that hasn’t already been took? The one inmate had served 22 years... for a non-v!0lent offense. If Kim took time out of her day, from posting selfies lol, to help an unfairly incarcerated black person from 22+ year jail sentence then who cares what the repercussions are down the line...

  • T Willis

    Aye, shoot, “welcome cuz!” ?????? She helping black folk... married to black folk, got part black folk kin, idgaf... she’s invited ?

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Meanwhile Jordyn Woods still has no black friends after countless support from the black community. Cardi does anything but promote POC in high regards . All I’m saying is that amongst shallow socialites , she takes the top and does something with it . Her claim to fame was being Paris Hilton best friend and a sextape and she took it to the white horse literally.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Facts , she duck with more blacks people than some famous black people . I would name some names but it ain’t hard to figure out. She doing more representation than most of these IG celebs

  • Applebum

    As if. I’ll never like that trashy family. They can’t get attention any other way, everything has to do with blacks but they never speaks out about any black issues. They use blacks and now they’re making room to become saviors of blacks. FOH. They need blacks to stay afloat. This is just another way. I don’t like those witches and never will.

  • T Willis

    I agree with you - and you’re right - but, these reforms - no matter how low hanging - is reform and is bringing relief to a dozen or so black families. Why must we always argue about the (minor) slights? I know, it’s frustrating when black ppl aren’t credited for attempts erect change for our ppl. However, can we just enjoy the positive impact that Kim’s platform has brought to the conversation? We can’t keep cutting off our noses to spite our face. Change is happening... positive change is happening for some of these black inmates. Let’s celebrate that and not have it convoluted with negativity of who started what first...

  • T Willis

    I agree

  • Elecktra

    And that’s the problem. This is just a “niche” to her. There is no longer a response when she posts nude on social media. Their reality show is coming to an end. So what better than to transform into a celebrity activist? She tried jumping on gun reform and got shut down by the NRA. She tried to be social media warrior for school shooting victims but no one paid attention. But alas, the opportunity of a lifetime came along when she realized that Alice Johnson was one of the prisoners who was denied clemency by Obama and that pimp mama Kris could use her connections with the Trumps to get her a photo op...and the rest is history.

  • Dun Dilly

    Kim for the win.

  • Michelle Peele

    But she can't make the potato salad! Baby steps! Lol

  • dontgetblocked

    Believe me, her PR team is only picking easy cases. Now let's see what happens to these people that are being freed. Will they be productive citizens or go back to doing what they know best? Why doesn't she focus on education reform. I'm sorry but I don't really care about convicted drug dealers. How many lives did they ruin or people did they kill by selling poison?

  • missmiami305

    Thank-you ????. I see through the bs. Not getting my praise. Fugg her and anything she attaches her name to. That’s all she is doing anyway. Other folks are doing the work and she simply seeks the praise.

  • dontgetblocked

    How does releasing criminals back on the street benefit us?

  • dontgetblocked

    We'll see how many of these criminals end up right back in jail.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    A clout chaser using her fame for som good , that happens to date black men , have black friends and an admiration for Black culture - Kim K in a nutshell.

    In my book she does more good than many black women celebs and socialites. So don’t even date black men , so salute to the attention whore.

  • dontgetblocked

    If the black race is so desperate that we need Kim Kartrashian to save us...GOD HELP US! Not going to praise this white woman who likes black dlick and despises black women. She wants to look like a black women but not live the black women's life. Phuck her! She is not and never will be invited to my BLACK picnic. Get the hell out of here.

  • Elecktra

    No let’s put the ENTIRE truth out there instead of forcing only one side of narrative. Kim has plenty of people worshipping her and I don’t need to. Furthermore, don’t try to chastise me and ignore the hack who brought the discourse to the discussion with his lies and political bantering. None of you celebrated when Obama released black men and women back home to their families so don’t try act like you are so overjoyed about that now. This all about the fandom for Kim.

  • OvertheMississippi

    I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this. ????????

  • HoneyHitchcock

    So are all of the nonviolent offenders that were given unjust sentences black? Are there no other races in similar situations?

    Just congratulate and that would be a start.

  • TheOwley

    smdh. When this woman is doing more for the parole of deserving black men than black celebrities and other notable black folks. People should know the prison system is a private business. Somebody makes lots of money for every black man put behind bars. Black folks need to get out of that other end of the business. A little redemption for Kim.

  • T Willis

    That sounds very plausible and may very well be her agenda, but, again, if black can people benefit why does it matter? What is the alternative? If what you stated is indeed fact, what is the alternative for those 17 families? Trump will remain in office for the 12+ months, so what do you want the 17 families to do? At what point do we stop nitpicking at a bruised ego, and accept the help when it’s presented? We are in no position to criticize Kim’s efforts to help these black families. We have no political power, and our majority political party, the Democrats, are the minority majority in Congress. We need her help. I’m not saying you, or anyone, needs to like Kim or outwardly support her, but can we please turn down the negativity on social media? I just do not see a problem with her helping black families.

  • What???

    PREACH!!!

  • T Willis

    Non-v!0lent offenders.
    It’s not about the “crime” per se, but the amount of sentencing attached to said “crimes”. I want those who commit crimes to be punished as well, however, I don’t think it’s okay for a black guy slinging dime bags to go to jail for 10 years. That’s not ok. And, who’s to say they actually committed a crime? We just need reform.

  • What???

    God IS helping us...in the form of this WHITE GODDESS. If we are HUMBLE and follow God's Laws, we won't remain a cursed and envious people forever.

  • T Willis

    Omg lol you are so blinded by your anger hatred of this woman - who clearly represents yt Amerikkka lol in your eyes- that you’re not grasping the fact that this conversation isn’t about you, Obama, Trump, or even Kim for that matter - this is about 17 families who will receive clemency. This is about THEM. Yes, it’s f*cked up that we live in a r@c!$t society, yes it’s f*cked up that Congress blocked Obama’s attempt to pass similar legislator, yes it’s f*cked up that Kim will be publicly paraded for something that other black ppl have attempted to do. Feel better? Great, now can we celebrate the fact that these 17 prisoners will be released and reunited with their families?

  • Star

    I so agree with you. We all know it’s motive for a new show or money and explain to me how this is doing this without legal knowledge? It sounds like her legal team is spearheading this. I am not praising the white women either. Black people are so blind.

  • Around the world

    The utter stupidity. Google what Beyonce and Rihanna are doing for our community. And when you're done with that. You can delete this asinine comment smh.

  • T Willis

    At least she’s picking some cases lol. Do we know the nice, respectable, black ppl that are shouldering the burden of the harder ones? And no you did not have the AUDACITY to say which reform Kim should do ??????...

  • missmiami305

    Kum looks absolutely horrid when she doesn’t photoshop her pics. She looks soooooooo aged.

  • Elecktra

    Comparing her to other people’s shortcomings doesn’t make her look any more glorious. Don’t say “well she is doing more than so and so” as if to imply that this is a job they are all obligated to do and the others failed. For Kim this is merely another business deal to extend her relevancy because she can’t sustain as just a reality star who sells makeup for the next 5-10 years. I know you guys say so what if it helps others, but sometimes these privileged narcissists with their savior complex need to stay in their own lane. Not saying she shouldn’t help get people get out of prison but I don’t care for the media sensationalism. Kim is being credited like she is the one researching these cases and going to court for these inmates, when her part mostly involves donating money to organizations who review their applications for release and provide legal aid.

  • rockstar2142

    Props to Kim for using her celebrity for good & shining a light on a cause that needs it.

  • Elecktra

    I could never hate anyone, I simply have thoughts about the situation that you don’t agree with. But guess what? Too mother f***ing bad. You will get over it. Now grasp this:

    1) I don’t have to celebrate damned thing kapeesh? I don’t know any of these people. You celebrate.

    2). After that you can skip your triggered behind back to the comment that I replied to, which provides all of the context you need for my response.

    Good day.

  • Yup, I said it

    Kim looks like something that came back to life after being buried at sea.

  • GAPeach

    Kanye is dressed like the Maytag man from those commercials. All he needs is that hat.

    I'm not even gonna talk about Kim in this post. She's using her money for something positive. Good for her.

  • GAPeach

    Someone told me that they make like $80 a day or something in Gwinnett County. That's why the do 2 for 1. Basically, your sentence is 30 days, you only have to serve 15 because they've made all the money they need off of you by then.

  • T Willis

    It was my mistake lol I assumed you gave a f*ck about black ppl - now I see you’re only concerned about your ego and the perception of Kim’s generosity. It’s cool, I’ll leave you to your bitterness.

    Good day to you as well ??

  • tia

    I love Kanye in his Dickie's get up. Dickie's is classic! Can't even knock Kim. Instead of uploading another nude; glad she's finding something else to do with her time. Kudos to her.

  • PetiteButterScotch

    Keep getting those brownie points for blks to keep praising her ? I bet if a black person tried to actually use their platform for good, they’d end up being extorted or killed. The media is playing yal. And I hate how the REAL talent, the real genius is always playing the background to this high priced escort while looking mk’d out of his mind. Over it.

    There are tons of Black women that are doing leg work and have put forth a lot of work doing the exact same thing. They receive not a single mention or notoriety. She shouldn’t receive any type of redemption for pretending to care about a community and people she’s always refused to speak up for any other time. She’s a fame seeker and publicity hunter. When she dies she will be known as this white woman that was the savior upon our very own community when no other black lawyer gets the same respect and even from the black community itself.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    They don’t speak on black issues because they are not black , listen to what you just said , but what she has done is engaged in black culture because she wants to .

    I give Kim credit , there are many including black celebs that have gained fame of the help of blacks but wouldn’t date a black person if they begged.

    Zoe Saldana , Tika sumpter, what black issues are they fighting for , both of them threw that Pussy like a boomerang at them white men. At least Kim k ain’t fronting , she ain’t fronting because all she dates is black men.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Kim has all the money and fame , she could have been tossed blacks aside once she rose in the elevator of success but she is having more kids with Kanye and does nothing but date black men , hell I don’t care for her or anyone in the family , but atleast she is doing something with her so called game . Atleast she ain’t sold out and just used blacks , she fucks with us.

    How many black men have Naomi Campbell dated or Zoe Saldana or Tika Sumpter or Jordyn Woods or Garcielle beauvies, or Cari Champion ? Hell the Kardashian’s fuck with black men more than some famous celebs that y’all put in a pedestal.

    Naomi Campbell avoids black men like that plauge and that last black guy she was with , that was some business shit to put him on . Naomi fuck with black men .

  • Marlika

    Keep praising this cave demon for doing nothing. She doesn’t have the power or pull to negotiate anything!!
    People believe anything the yamp says!
    There are plenty of other people that actually are getting people out of prison and some are celebs. And guess what they don’t let the whole world know what they do! Anyone who knows the criminal justice system and how things actually work would know this bitch is full of it. But keep praising her. She’s not squat!! Licensed attorneys are?

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Stop it , everyone doesn’t need a press release for charitable , political , or just great contributions .

    A prime example is Beyonce , I heard she donated like over $5million for the Houston hurricane relief , but she doesn’t believe in boasting about doing good deeds like this lost generation of clout chasers.

    Yes I agree Kim K Attention whore ass does a lot more than these so called IG socialites, but to flat out claim that she does more than black celebs in whole is a joke.

    Kim k is what she is , a clout chasing attention seeking whore who does some good with her fame , nothing more nothing less .

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    I can’t speak for Overated Rihanna but Beyonce doesn’t push that , Beyonce is a Christian who pushes being yourself. Not only that but she’s done a lot of contributions behind the scenes without the need for clout .

  • TheOwley

    Kim is not the only white person doing this. Other white folks are doing the same under the radar, just like other black folks we don't know anything about. So let's put it on an equal playing field, what black celebrity like Kim OR better and more respected than her is doing this, name one. Common, the Carters, who. This was my original point. I was not implying that others were not doing the same thing. I mean celebrities the world knows.

    And I know the woman well, even though she is now a wife and mother, it remains a fact that she was a common hoe who became what she is today from a porn video and used a depressed black man for her come up in the legitimate world of fashion and entertainment. But you and I don't get to dictate how one comes to their redemption. Only God gets to do that. Every single entertainer is all about attention seeking, all, no exception. At least she is putting out positive results.

  • TheOwley

    Maybe Kim is trying to redeem herself. You don't get to call the shots about that, unless you are God. Are you? She is what she is but is using her clout for good deeds. I didn't claim "all endeavors." Just this one, the prolonged incarceration of black folks. She's tackled that on and is winning. More boasting, more people release. Now show me the black ""celebrities"" doing the same.

  • imright

    In order to study law and take the Bar Exam one must have a college degree aka bachelor's. Kim doesn't have a high school diploma does she? She certainly hasn't gone to college, not a day. Folks tooting her horn and promoting her "studying for law school", meanwhile ignoring that Blac Chyna really did go to college in Florida.

  • Jussjess25

    Oh forreal?? No dam near eight years of schooling?? Wow. It must be almost impossible to get the internship if your bot rich in that state.

  • Jussjess25

    I was hating at first but I salute her as well. With as much money and prestige this women now has. The fact is she does not have to spend her time doing this. She literally can spend her time doing anything in this world. Sometimes destiny doesn't start off in a conventional way. Kim may actually go on to do amazing things.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    As so many have stated here, it is wonderful the work Kim has taken on, even with her private agendas, always using blacks or black culture for her next level, she’s helping people! It’s how we’re always used, historically!

    No need to put down Beyonce, Rihanna or Ciara because they wouldn’t have the same impact as BLACK WOMEN, AND Y’ALL KNOW IT!

    People have a right to cite her motives like “rebranding” or “redemption” to eclipse the ses tape that made her a superstar pop culture mega-millionaire and celebrity personality, social influencer!

    It’s ok for criticism because how anything she does is magnified 100x by the media (machine) where legal clinics, pro bono attorneys, social justice reformers, law students (black and white) get wrongly convicted or over-sentenced individuals exonerated all the time!

    A black savior she’s not, but an excellent business woman, YES!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    AGREE!

    I don’t like to see her compared to Beyoncé, Rihanna, Ciara, Alicia Keys, and many other Blacks celebrities!

    First of all, these people are entertainers, not just a celebrity personality, so they don’t have to broadcast EVERY DOLLAR, IN-KIND GIFT, DONATION, SCHOLARSHIP OR CHECK THEY WRITE for promotion or relevancy, their work (music, films) identifies them over SM or financial net worth!

    2nd, Kim is heavily supported and will be supported by those in power because of the massive social media followers she has, and also she’s still viewed as a WHITE WOMAN!

    We can’t even get obvious, corrupted and homicidal cops convicted! But, our work can’t be discounted because KIM is REBRANDING and also HELPING convicts, don’t get it twisted!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Good try, but we live in a tale of two cities! Sadly, I’m not sure if the black celebrities would have the same effect!

    No doubt, Kim is doing a good deed (APPLAUSE), but it’s also posturing for Trump and self-promotion for her future agendas (no hate). Her social justice reform is a celeb cause that’s trending because of her popularity!

    If you follow social justice reformers, it can and often takes YEARS to get inmates released or exonerated!

    I can’t count how many change dot org petitions, I’ve signed for over-sentencing, and pleas for release or a new trial!

    CELEBRATE KIM, but learn the infrastructure of how things work before you put down others to cape!

  • T Willis

    They can’t you show you the other black celebrities ?... if the rescue isn’t coming from black ppl, then they don’t want to hear about it or celebrate it. I have never seen a bigger group of @$$ backwards thinkers. Black ppl are being released and all anyone can talk about is Kims motives? Smdh it’s all ego with some black ppl... they don’t care about justice or the release of their ppl, just ego and perception. Smdh

  • T Willis

    Well stated ??

  • the guest

    As so many have stated here, it is wonderful the work Kim has taken on, even with her private agendas, always using blacks or black culture for her next level, she’s helping people! It’s how we’re always used, historically!

  • Sircaput

    So if they are not letting the world know they do it then how do we know they are doing it. If anyone has any issue what Kim is doing it's hating! And hell is it wasn't publicized know one would ever believe it happened. So lets be happy these prisoners are able to come home and be with their families!

  • Sircaput

    It's funny that people are more concerned about her agenda rather than being happy that men are able to come home and be with their family regardless of who got them out. so if you have an issue with that then you are nothing more than a hater because you would rather the men stay in jail than give Kim her praise for what she is dong.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Yeah, everyone uses us for personal gain, from politicians to the Arab corner stores, sandwich shops and beauty supply stores while fulfilling a need, and in Kim’s case doing some good!

    It’s a cake walk for Kim, her cases are being expedited because of her fame, influence, and money to fund her legal reform team!

    And, a lot of inmates now have hope because usually it can takes years for the courts to hear and rule on cases!

  • Gloria

    So would you rather the inmates stay in jail????? You don't have to like Kim to appreciate what she is doing. Its okay to be happy for others.

  • Gloria

    THIS!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    PREACH!!! They dont hear you tho...they are too busy listening to the "supper time" bell on the plantation...My gmom always said when "the elite" do favors best believe there is a consequence to their "kindness"...

  • Gloria

    Why do you feel the need to uplift Kim by putting others down? Thats really not necessary. Rihanna and Beyonce have both done charitable work.

  • Gloria

    Some of these people would rather see black people continue to suffer from an unjust system instead of having an obvious white ally act in support of us. Its mind boggling to me. She's married to a black man and has black children so obviously her social justice efforts will be geared towards blacks. Why is this so wrong?

  • Vonda K

    Good use of her white privilege.
    From sucking d on tape to prison reform activists. She’s come along way.

  • Gloria

    Yes.
    They always control revolutionary groups of social activists organizations. SMH.

  • Real_Nigga_101

    You must not know about Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z with their homossexual agenda... Why do you think they're good friends with gay ass Obama?

  • Real_Nigga_101

    I just stated facts and never intended to put nobody down.

  • chaisun

    Kim is just like the white missionaries that travel to “impoverished and poor”black and brown islands and countries to unload their savior complex on everyone... including those that never asked for their help. Only doing so for the attention and notoriety. We all know these missionaries are there for other non god like activities with children and locals but those are stories for other days. I say that to say there’d always be other Black people in the same said tribes, countries, islands that never received the same fan-fair because they didn’t want it. There is no secret that this country and world will work tirelessly to make white people and in particularly white women the face of change in our very own community. Those same celebrities you mentioned do a lot in the community. They just don’t need the world to know about it. Just like meek mill currently working on prison reform but he’s also not seeking media and white approval while doing so. Historically speaking we as a collective shouldn’t trust white People so bent on “helping” us anyway. When have they ever had our best interest at heart.

  • HelloToni

    I see..a cookout invitation has no value to me. When someone uses their celebrity unselfishly to do something for someone helpless I think is great. Maybe it's because I have two brother in federal prison for non violent crimes that have already served 20 plus years and we pray everyday for reform/

  • T Willis

    Exactly. I don’t understand either...

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Its not unselfishly tho...Kim does not do anything to benefit anyone but herself. She is all about image and trying to be perfect...she is the ultimate self-serving person...she is a spokesperson for a group who sits in litigation to free these people...Please dont mistake a "handout" to erase her previous line walking behavior when it came to white cops shooting unarmed blacks, etc....this is just another prop for her until she gets bored and goes to something else...the white savior rhetoric at this point is tiring...sorry for your brothers but I have two also who have never been locked up and they dont exhibit or conduct themselves in any way to get booked in the first place...they never sold drugs, never shot someone, they are college educated brothas who didn't go to the norm in our society because we were raised past that...

  • Trace da Ace

    say what?? So by me being a VA resident...I can intern for 4 years and then sit for the bar??? They left that tid bit of info out during Career Day back in school.....I think I need to rethink my career goals and shit....smdh

  • Trace da Ace

    kudos.

  • TheOwley

    "those that never asked for their help." She has stacks of letters from people that want their drug cases reviewed. I for one don't feel as grim like you about anyone that wants to help. Kim has plenty of notoriety and found a new niche. If it helps people so what. Maybe she is trying to redeem her broken soul, who is anyone to say not allowed.

  • the guest

    It's a fact. In five states, not only California.

    However California is the only one of those states that requires passing "The Baby Bar" as prereq to taking The Bar. The Baby Bar is considered among the most difficult academic and professional tests in the world with 5% pass statistic.

    No degree needed. but it's no walk in the park to get that no college law degree in Cali.

  • TheOwley

    ?

  • Tee Tee

    Who would've thought Kim K out of ALL people would be the one fighting to free black men from prison?????
    I don't f*ck with the Kardashians but I will say I'm watching Miss Kim???
    She doing her thing?

  • Tee Tee

    That's him secretly asking for help?

  • Tee Tee

    Yep!

  • TheOwley

    Believe me, it has not escaped me the why she is doing it. It's yielding good results. I'm giving her an out and calling it her effort to redemption. I do so because I don't know what's in her heart. But if you are a student of the Bible you know that good works done purely for self interest is meaningless and does not count for anything. Until then, we can only hope she is for her sake this is the one thing in her life she means well and not for self interest. And yes, I know her notoriety has impacted more on prison reform that people that have been doing the ground work. At least Trump has gotten behind the effort and I've seen some black community leaders embracing that as well.

    Good point....they don't seem to make it on blogs. I feel like if we are going to blog about this we need to give them all recognition because she not doing anything anyone else is doing passionately.

  • Karen Brady

    LOL!

  • B.Loveitt

    DAMN YOU ARE THE SHYT!!! YOU AND ALL OF THIS COMMENT IS EVERYTHING!!! Same shyt I was saying about the royals and M. Markle. They will forever use "US" for their private agendas.

    I'm putting this on a T- shirt!

  • Karen Brady

    This whole comment!

  • Karen Brady

    Shut up

  • B.Loveitt

    Not to mention there are many people who do this BOTH BLACKAND WHITE. I don't know why people really think she's doing this because it just popped in her head. THEY ONLY TELL THE NEGATIVE SHYT ABOUT US.

  • B.Loveitt

    Oh so all these other lawyers and activists who's been doing this for years gave them no hope...hope only showed up when Kim did. That's why she's the face of this when others with no name been doing it.

  • Primo Levi

    right about that its just 2 bad black ppl so stupid 2 realize they continuously being conquer in the new era but they love it! tell that bih kim k get my 2 mans that been lock up since 95 98 then ill believe the witch!

  • Karen Brady

    "Its not unselfishly tho...Kim does not do anything to benefit anyone but herself. She is all about image and trying to be perfect.. She is all about image and trying to be perfect...she is the ultimate self-serving person.." THIS

  • Karen Brady

    Waste not waist. I'm just saying.

  • J2PC

    Please do your research to see that is not so. Look up How do I become a lawyer without a Law Degree.

    A law firm has to willing to take on the candidate to train that person in various law cases & court proceedings [while the candidate put in hours studying for the LSAT & preparing to take and pass most major law exams that all law students are to take].

    The law candidate has to work & be trained under their law firm for thousands of hours as they are tested along the way to prepare for taking the actual Bar Exam to become a lawyer.

    According to those in the law firm, Kim has been taking notes while studying laws surrounding Torts & Personal Injuries and actually passing her exams. Now it is onto learning other subjects in law.

  • Karen Brady

    You said that... "kapeesh?" LOL!!!

  • J2PC

    Not just in Cali, but other states also allow a candidate to study law books & pass each exam along the way while also being trained under a law firm.

  • J2PC

    Don't need a Bachelor's Degree to become an attorney at law. Look it up. Some states allow you to become a lawyer as long as you have studied law taken exam along the way to ultimately pass the big Bar Exam...all while being trained additionally in law research & various court cases under a sponsoring law firm. -only about 5 States allow this.

  • J2PC

    Creating a different image is one thing, but your history (past reputation) will still be there and not erased. Many have tried it only for their dirt or past to come out again in the end.

    There is nothing wrong with anyone taking a higher road to try to better themselves in a positive way.

    A number of Black folks in a positive position should reach out to help their own learn how do the same where there no longer shame in their game.

  • What???

    Where’s your proof that she despises black women? She has a daughter who’s father is black and even looks more like him. And hypothetically, even if she wanted to look like a black woman, how could she even live a black woman’s life if she even wanted to?? That makes no sense. You tend to have reasonably logical arguments but now you’re just straight hatin. KIM KARDASHIAN FOR PRESIDENT!!! You know she’s gonna do it because she’s so rich she has to be humble and serve.

  • Anji

    Actually a Coalition I belong to in Cali has freed over 100 Black males and fought down a new prison since January. But let KK get all the shine. Point being, they're freed.

  • PetiteButterScotch

    Yeah nah..she’s doing it for the praise bc blk ppl are SHEEP and will always praise this already privileged family that uses black ppl as tokens to further THEIR brand. I’m no dummy. And this is just how I feel ????? i dnt force myself to give in to the smoke n mirrors

  • PetiteButterScotch

    Nobody said any of that. I’m just stating the OBVIOUS. Trust me hate has never been in my vocabulary. Like I said let any of these artists try to use their platforms for good and see what happens to them—not like it hasn’t been happening already ????? Kim is a witch and they feed off of black ppl for their vitality and lifeforce. Esp Black men.

  • PetiteButterScotch

    Thank you. And black ppl be so quick to defend her whenever another black person ain dick riding ?

  • Dun Dilly

    Facts. Kim might fk around and have us adopt her as an official sista girl!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Thanks!

    Do that T-shirt, we are being swept away!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    We are so asleep, and offended if anyone Blacks presents a perspective or alternative or covert narrative!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    This is the problem, “White ice is colder” kind of thinking!

    I know attorneys who can’t get half paid, but the same client will go and spend thousands with a white attorney, and not get off!

    They’re making her the face of prison reform, like it’s never been done before! They never show or introduce her legal team of attorneys, justice reformers, or paralegals, etc.

    Her cases are being EXPEDITED, I follow social justice, the courts are already bombarded. It takes time, and the cases she picks have probably already been worked on!

    Inmates know it’s her publicity train at work, and they are hoping to get lucky!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I get what you’re saying! I’m not condemning Kim, and applaud her effort, even if it is self-serving! But, there are other sides to this story, and the narrative that’s being crafted!

    I know black attorneys who work to undo over-sentencing, and volunteer with legal clinics!

    And, Beyoncé and Jay-Z wouldn’t receive the same praise for freeing former drug dealers, sorry! White people wouldn’t have cooperated with them to expedite cases in the same fashion!

    Obama commuted the sentences of over 200 inmates, but even he didn’t get this type of applause or fanfare!

    Expungement workshops are being held by MANY Black churches, community organizations, job training fairs by black people! I help individuals fill out paperwork!

    I work with family and friends to talk with pretrial staff, public defenders, prosecutors and judges on behalf of individuals awaiting trial, to minimize the possible outcomes.

  • ViolettaBliss

    I could just see this cauldron of witches sitting around with there salads - ratings are low - people are tired of looking at our naked bodies - let's save some black people, they will be so grateful to us that they will keep watching our shows and buying all of our cheap products. Wait a minute Kim can become a lawyer- we'll call dad's old law firm and have them agree to say she is under there tutelage I think this could work - we can become the saviors of all black criminals - this will repair Kanye's street cred. We just need to publicize every little good deed Kim does and keep pushing this lawyer narrative....This family knows how to monetize black culture and how easy it is to manipulate the masses. They want to do something monumental for black culture - Free Kanye ! He's been in a sunken place since being sucked in by the K Coven.

  • Gloria

    Idc why she’s doing it. I’m just glad to see black people benefitting from it. She’s famous.... it’s the media who is really shedding the light on her but she has a team of female lawyers who are all BLACK who are doing the work and getting these other melinated people home to their families. It’s a collective approach and I’m not going to knock these successful lawyers from helping THEIR people. I’m not asking you to like Kim because I don’t care for the women. Just asking you to put that hate to the side for this one person and see the collective achievement that includes two successful black lawyers!

  • PetiteButterScotch

    Just asking you to stop labeling everything as hate when its not dick riding bandwagon hopping.

  • toby irish

    she needs to mind her own business...she has no credentials she has no clue what she s doing..she is NOT a lawyer and she never will be she s a plastic fake with the rest of her demented family and what s with just exonerating blacks omg I can t take this one..yup eat ur salads and do us a favor stick to nudity....no please don t I think we all no what ur fat body looks like

  • toby irish

    im white,,, I so agree with u...

  • AngusCarpathian

    Nice little PR scam they are running, let a handful of people go and act like you are saving the world. The US prison population is about 2.3 million people with the number of black people being about 476,000 so 17 people is nothing, wouldn't be mentioned if it was anyone else. An actual notable number is the number of black people in prison before Obama came in and when he left, it went from just under 600,000 people to the number I quoted, 476,000. Stupid people will fall for this scam because stupid people always do. Oh well.
