In her monologue, Kim said she thinks she’s following in the footsteps of her late father, Robert Kardashian, who was on the former NFL star’s legal team for his 1995 trial over the double murder of his ex-wife and her friend, of which O.J. was acquitted.
“My father was and is still such an influence and inspiration to me and I credit him with really opening up my eyes to racial injustice,” said Kim, who is studying to become a lawyer and is an advocate for criminal justice reform. “It’s because of him that I met my first Black person. Want to take a stab in the dark at who it was?”
She continued, “I know it’s sort of weird to remember the first Black person you met, but O.J. does leave a mark. Or several! Or none at all. I still don’t know.”
