Are Kim Kardashian and Harriet Tubman TWINS?
They both HATE injustice and they are both out to set the captives free. Think of Harriet Tubman. WARNING: HISTORY LESSON COMING
She was born a slave and when she was only 12 years old, A slave owner was about to throw a heavy metal weight at a slave that escaped, and Harrier stepped in front of the slave and the weight hit her head instead. This caused dizziness, pain, and spells of hypersomnia, all of her life.
Can you believe after all that, and being a slave, she still invented a network of tunnels, and shortcuts to free her fellow slaves. She also “never lost a passenger” so yeah she’s pretty IMPRESSIVE.
After the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 was passed, she helped guide fugitives farther north into British North America and helped newly freed slaves find work.
When the Civil War began, Tubman worked for the Union Army, first as a cook and nurse, and then as an armed scout and spy. She has more accomplishments, can you believe that?! She was the first woman to lead an armed expedition in the war, she guided the raid at Combahee Ferry, which liberated more than 700 slaves.
She was active in the women’s suffrage movement until illness overtook her. She helped establish an elderly home for African-Americans, that she had to be admitted to years later. After she died in 1913, she became an icon of courage and freedom.

Advocacy in 2019
Kim Kardashian has been a huge Advocate for a few different things.
Armenian and Scottish ancestry. She has advocated for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide on numerous occasions and encouraged President Barack Obama and the United States government to consider its acknowledgment.

On a trip to Uganda in October 2018, she met with President Yoweri Museveni with her husband.
Kim and Harriet | Heroines
I look at these women as VERY VERY similar. I don’t hold either in any HIGHER regard than the other. Let me explain.
I don’t hold Harriet in higher regard because she lived long ago so she doesn’t have the same opportunities as Kim. and she was able to accomplish what she accomplished ‘back in the day’.
Kim had it easy because she was born with This or That, and could walk into the white house blah blah.
I just think that these 2 women are just really hard workers. I believe they are GOING TO BE SUCCESSFUL in whatever endeavor they might choose to pursue. I do personally believe that the MENTALITY of these 2 women is so similar that it’s uncanny.
I also believe that they both will choose to succeed regardless of the obstacles that lie in front of them, whether you were born in 1980 or 1822 a PIT BULL is still a PIT BULL.
You can’t imagine what it’s like
Harriet Tubman was born a black slave woman. NO NO Do you understand what they life MAY HAVE BEEN LIKE. RAPE, Beatings, poverty, other snitching slaves, migrating WITH scared slaves to freedom. Erecting a route, network, trusted contacts to free 700 people and not lose 1.
GTFOH – She’s a BEAST
Kim is RICH…nah nah, don’t miss that. SHE’S RICH and has absolutely NO REASON to pursue this endeavor. But she is. President Trump is typically covered as a man that cannot be worked with or reasoned with. But she did. She literally visits the white house, with her goal in mind, agenda in hand and walks out with RESULTS!
Nah nah…she has no reason to expose herself in the way she does. She’s sooooo wealthy that she doesn’t need to concern herself with this. These women are willing to RISK A LOT to help others.
And for that… Harriet and Kim – I thank you.
I could learn a thing or 2 from these women. We ALL could.
