Khloe Kardashian Speaks About Boko Haram, Lends Her Voice To The #IAmNigeria Campaign

share on:

“Can you imagine the fear that makes you let go of your child’s hand?” My prayers are with you Nigeria!!!!!!! #IAmNigeria #PrayForAll #AllLivesMatter religion is NOT the focus here. The fact is any life taken is devastating and unacceptable. – This was what the American reality TV Star posted on her Instagram barely 20minutes ago as she shows support to Nigeria.

Boko Haram

A terrorist attack on French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo last week has since dominated the 24-hour international news cycle as has the hashtag #JeSuisCharlie. Yet the massacre of 2,000 Nigerians carried out by the Islamist extremist group Boko Haram has not.

The hashtag #IamNigeria has exploded in reaction to a worldwide media neglect for the story, begging the question why thousands of innocent deaths can go virtually unnoticed in comparison to the death of 17.

#IamNigeria is one of the many phrases designed to point out the imbalanced media focus on Paris over Nigeria. The’Je Suis Charlie’ and ‘I Am Charlie’ slogans have been retailored into ‘Je Suis Nigerian’ and ‘I am Baga’ in addition to ‘Nigerian lives matter’
