Baby Phat founder Kimora Lee Simmons has written her first blog entry for GlobalGrind.com, the website spearheaded by her ex-husband Russell Simmons.

The expectant mother chooses to write about Russell’s work to repeal New York’s Rockefeller Drug Laws.

Here’s an excerpt:

“…I remember how happy Russell was when Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Mariah Carey, Fat Joe, The Beastie Boys, Andrew Cuomo, then State Senator David Paterson, then Senator Hillary Clinton and so many others from the hip-hop community came out to advocate for an end to these laws.

“…I remember the day he came home with a big smile on his face and a pen in his hand.  I didn’t understand why he was so happy to be holding this pen until I learned that our then-Governor had signed legislation slightly rolling back the Rockefeller Drug Laws and had given him the pen he used.

“…Most important was the impact he’d had in a movement that was supporting families and re-building our communities. So, I was pleased a few weeks ago when Russell was given another pen-this time from Governor David Paterson, who courageously ended 36 years of biased and shortsighted drug legislation.

As a person of color, a mother of two daughters and one child on the way, a businesswoman and a concerned citizen, I believe that we need a shift in mindset. Drug abuse should be treated as the health care issue it is.”

    Ok I think those sandals would be a good look with that 3/4 color block dress. Maybe it’s because of that flower thing.
