Kendall went on to discuss how she spent the recent days thinking on the injustice and her white privilege. 

‘I’ve been doing a lot of thinking these past few days and my heart has been so heavy,’ she wrote. ‘I’m angry and hurt just like so many.’

Adding: ‘I will never personally understand the fear and pain that the black community go through on a daily basis, but i know that nobody should have to live in constant fear.’

‘I acknowledge my white privilege and promise I will continue to educate myself on how I can help,’ Kendall wrote.

She went on to encourage action off of social media to change the system, not only ‘raging on platforms.’ 

‘Raging on platforms can not be all that we do in order to repair the system we need to take real action,’ the catwalk maven wrote. ‘Off of social media.’  

‘This is a time to have those uncomfortable conversations with people and mainly with ourselves,’ she continued. ‘We must also make sure we are ready to vote when the time comes to elect the right people into office.’

Hoping to make her final message clear she ended saying  ‘the one truth that will always ring loudest is that BLACK LIVES MATTER.’

Kendall also was sure to mention Floyd, the man who’s death started nationwide protests.  

‘Rest peacefully George Floyd and all victims of this horrible injustice,’ she wrote. 

Floyd was recorded in police custody last week being pinned to the crowd by an ex-Minnesota police officer with a knee to his neck and at least two other cops kneeling on other part of his body at different points. 

The video showed the main officer, Derek Chauvin, with his knee to Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes until and after her went unconscious and was eventually pronounced dead, on Memorial Day.

Chauvin was charged with third degree murder and manslaughter on Friday, though the other three police officers, who lost their jobs alongside Chauvin after the incident were not yet charged. 

Protests erupted across the nation with many large cities being under curfew orders by Monday.
