Kim Kardashian is finally showing a more serious side. 

The 33-year-old reality star arrived at an event on Wednesday dressed smartly in a white suit jacket, and new-look coincided with a lengthy post on her Twitter account same day addressing her fears about racism.

Kim - who attended the USC Shoah Foundation's 20th Anniversary Gala at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza - took to her Twitter hours earlier to speak out against racism.

'I never knew how much being a mom would change me,' Kim began on her post.

'To be honest, 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.'

She went on: 'But recently, I've read and personally experienced some incidents that have sickened me and made me take notice.'

Speaking out: Kim took to her blog on Wednesday to speak out against racism, which she admitted she hadnt really thought a lot about before becoming a mother

Adding: 'I realize that racism and discrimination are still alive, and just as hateful and deadly as they ever have been.'

She continued: 'I feel a responsibility as a mother, a public figure, a human being, to do what I can to make sure that not only my child, but all children, don't have to grow up in a world where they are judged by the color of their skin, or their gender, or their sexual orientation.'

'I want my daughter growing up in a world where love for one another is the most important thing.'

Kim's entry certainly comes as a surprise, as she had early been addressing rumours about her upcoming wedding to Kanye West on her Twitter profile.

It was a moving night at the USC SHOAH Foundation event for Kim too.

The star took to her Instagram to share a photo with an Armenian genocide survivor, to share with her millions of followers.

'Honored to be at the USC SHOAH Foundation event to support Armenian genocide testimonies,' she commented.

'I'm sitting next to the most inspiring 100 year old Armenian genocide survivor.'

KIM KARDASHIAN'S BLOG POST IN FULL

'On My Mind'

I never knew how much being a mom would change me. It’s amazing how one little person and the love I have for her has brought new meaning to every moment. What once seemed so important, now feels insignificant. It’s like I get to see the world for the first time again, but through someone else’s eyes. It’s a beautiful thing to feel and experience so much more, but with that beauty comes a flip side – seeing through my daughter’s eyes the side of life that isn’t always so pretty.

To be honest, 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 recently, I’ve 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.

I feel a responsibility as a mother, a public figure, a human being, to do what I can to make sure that not only my child, but all children, don’t have to grow up in a world where they are judged by the color of their skin, or their gender, or their sexual orientation. I want my daughter growing up in a world where love for one another is the most important thing.

So the first step I’m taking is to stop pretending like this isn’t my issue or my problem, because it is, it’s everyone’s… because the California teenager who was harassed and killed by his classmates for being gay, the teenage blogger in Pakistan who was shot on her school bus for speaking out in favor of women’s rights, the boy in Florida who was wrongly accused of committing a crime and ultimately killed because of the color of his skin, they are all someone’s son and someone’s daughter and it is our responsibility to give them a voice and speak out for those who can’t and hopefully in the process, ensure that hate is something our children never have to see.

I have seen some nasty and hateful words said on her insta when she posts a picture of baby North...people calling her an ugly Brotha Man..but it's really hard for me to believe that she did not see racism when all she dealt with were black men...maybe she was too self absorbed to take notice.
