    Bellanaija, shebi she is the only celebrity that has spoken out about this? All the other celebrities and influential people that have spoken about this – Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley, Taraji P Henson, Janelle Monae, Nicki Minaji, Cara Delvingne, Zendaya, Solange, Joan Smalls, Gabriel Union, Talib Kweli, Snoop etc — they all don’t matter oh! It’s only Kim Kardashian that matters. She is the only voice that matters!

    I am sure a more appropriate heading would have been – Justice for Sandra Bland – Celebrities and the world react! Then highlight what these people have tweeted or said. Everyone is raising awareness regarding this – not just Kim. It is a unified outcry so why not report it as so?

    Anyway, #RIPSandraBland I hope the truth comes out so that justice can prevail in this matter.

      I think it was something that drew people’s eye because everybody thinks she’s a shallow “dumb dumb” fame hungry person or sorts like that…hence why its there

    EDIT: actually am not yet done – This reporting is actually appalling. What y’all have successfully done is take the light away from the major issue – “a human being (black) died in police custody under suspicious circumstances amidst the racial tensions currently happening in the US!!!!”
    Yet y’all report it this way —- oh let’s all praise Kim for taking time out of her celebrity life to express concern over another human being’s death. Aren’t we all as human beings supposed to express concern and outrage over the senseless death of another being regardless of race, gender, social constructs etc? Like NO! Just NO! This reporting sucks in so many ways, I can’t even deal. I truly expect better from bellanaija and it’s writers. Like Just NO!

    Again, #RIPSandraBland, Praying for you and your family.

    As a black woman who live in USA (racist confederate flag loving south of mason Dixie – Atlanta GA) this worries me. It could happen to anyone. And no if I am in my car smoking (assuming i smoked) and u tell me put it out I won’t. Give me violation ticket but don’t tell me to put out my cigarettes.

    Kanye must have told her to do this but she is a mother to a BLACK gir now so am sure she can relate.

      Must you involve Kanye into this ? so she has to think because Kanye told her to think ? or she has feelings because Kanye told her to have feelings ?
      Some people sef……..

      Um the girl is mixed. Abeg let’s not start adopting America’s yeye one drop rule. But seriously tho, labelling a mixed lerosn black is insulting na. Their other side is not acknowledged at all.

      @Yvonne said it best. BN should include the many other influential people speaking on this, who have been speaking on this since day 1

    This Sandra Bland’s matter has deeply depressed me,when I was pregnant I got a ticket and the officer was yelling at me,at that time I didn’t know how toxic the police system was and I came down to check his name tag,what if something like this had happened? We need answers!!!!!!!
