After screengrabs of her notorious Pepsi ad resurfaced, Kendall Jenner posted a long message backing the Black Lives Matter movement on Instagram.

The model posted a range of protest- and racial injustice-related images to her Instagram on Tuesday, and told her followers in the caption, "I've been doing a lot of thinking these past few days and my heart has been so heavy."

"I will never personally understand the fear and pain that the black community go through on a daily basis, but I know that nobody should have to live in constant fear," she continued. "I acknowledge my white privilege and promise I will continue to educate myself on how I can help."

to everyone reading this and to myself: keep researching, reading, and educating yourself on how we can become better allies. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking these past few days and my heart has been so heavy. I’m angry and hurt just like so many. I will never personally understand the fear and pain that the black community go through on a daily basis, but i know that nobody should have to live in constant fear. I acknowledge my white privilege and promise I will continue to educate myself on how I can help. raging on platforms can not be all that we do in order to repair the system, we need to take real action, off of social media. this is a time to have those uncomfortable conversations with people and mainly with ourselves. we must also make sure we are ready to vote when the time comes to elect the right people into office. the one truth that will always ring loudest is that BLACK LIVES MATTER. ❤️ rest peacefully George Floyd and all victims of this horrible injustice
