Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian has been very vocal on social media.

In a statement, she said, 'Like so many of you, I am angry. I am more than angry. I am infuriated and I am disgusted.'

She continued, 'I am exhausted by the heartbreak I feel seeing mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and children suffering because their loved one was murdered or locked away unjustly for being Black.'

Kim went on, 'Even though I will never know the pain and suffering they have endured, or what it feels like to try to survive in a world plagued by systemic racism, I know I can use my own voice to help amplify those voices that have been muffled for too long.'

The reality star encouraged her followers to donate in the post's caption.
