  • Khloe Kardashian promised to ‘speak up’ for Black people in the face of injustice.
  • Many of her fans are claiming she’s ‘woke.’
  • Too bad Kardashian’s ‘wokeness’ is performative.

If you believe Khloe Kardashian, she’s a modern-day civil rights activist along the lines of Angela Davis and Rosa Parks.

The youngest Kardashian sister recently promised to use her ‘privilege’ to speak up for disenfranchised Black people.

And while many of her fans are claiming this is a sign of her ‘wokeness,’ Kardashian’s own recent history proves that her alleged activism is performative, at best.

Khloe Kardashian, Wannabe Activist

Leave it to Khloe Kardashian to center a conversation about racial tensions around her feelings.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star took to her Instagram to share her profound thoughts on the murder of George Floyd, in which she promised to ‘use her voice’ to help Black people out of oppression.

Like so many of you I am angry, heartbroken and disgusted by the murder of George Floyd. We have seen this too many times. Black people have been discriminated against, victimized and murdered for too long, and have shown superhuman resiliency in the face of constant adversity. I remain hopeful that together we can get help get justice for George and his family, and every black American who has been murdered, mistreated, abused and ignored. I will use [my] privilege to fight for you. I will not let George Floyd’s name be forgotten. I will speak up and speak out against discrimination fearlessly and louder than ever before.

What a hero. There’s just one problem: Khloe Kardashian, and her sisters, have a history of stealing Black culture for years.

She’s Literally Getting Sued For Stealing From A Black Woman

In a recent court filing, it was revealed that a company by the name of DBleu Dazzled is suing Khloe Kardashian and her company, Good American, for stealing their designs.

According to the lawsuit, Kardashian bought some of DBleu’s products for her own personal use, then copied the designs and sold them through Good American.

DBleu is run by a Black woman named Destiney Bleu. So I guess Kardashian was okay with being “fearless” in her (alleged) thievery from this particular Black woman?

And let’s not discuss how Kardashian had no problem being “fearless” in wrecking a Black family’s home to get with Tristan Thompson, only to then be “fearless” in her bullying of a Black woman named Jordyn Woods when she accused her of trying to “steal her man.”

The Kardashian swagger-jack of Black culture is so prevalent, in fact, that countless articles have been written about their “culture vulture” ways.

It’d be nice if Khloe Kardashian was sincere in lifting every voice. Unfortunately, her “wokeness” is performative.
