Kim Kardashian In White House One More Time
Kim Kardashian on June 13, 2019 attended a meeting in the White House, about criminal justice reform in USA. That was reported by various US media on June 14, 2019. She was given a very warm welcome to the meeting, with President Donald Trump reportedly calling her a great friend.
Kim Kardashian is a very staunch social and political activist. In June 2018 President Trump commuted a life prison sentence of 63 year old African American Alice Marie Johnson, after Kim Kardashian visited the White House and negotiated her release with him. Since then, the beauty multi-millionaire has become a vocal advocate and campaigner for prison reform and clemency in USA. At the same time, she began studying for a degree in law.
African Americans are said to be over-represented in US prisons. For instance, 2016 data show while African Americans constitutes only 12% of US total population, their share of US prison population is 33% compared to 30% of European Americans who constitute 64% of the total population.
