The prettier half of KimYe took to her blog last night to confess, "Before I had North, I never really gave racism or discrimination a lot of thought... It is obviously a topic that Kanye is passionate about, but I guess it was easier for me to believe that it was someone else's battle." But Kim says that recently she's "read and personally experienced some incidents that have sickened me and made me take notice. I realize that racism and discrimination are still alive, and just as hateful and deadly as they ever have been."

Explaining that she feels a "responsibility as a mother, a public figure, a human being, to do what I can," Kim says that from now on, she'll "stop pretending like this isn't my issue or my problem, because it is, it's everyone's."
