Kid Rock Honored by NAACP
Amid much controversy, musician Kid Rock received the Great Expectations award at the Detroit branch of the NAACP’s 56th annual “Fight for Freedom Fund” dinner Sunday. During his acceptance speech Kid proclaimed his love for Detroit, America and Black people and pledged $100,000 in donations from his foundation. Protesters outside the dinner, though, criticized the civil rights organization for honoring the rocker, who has used the Confederate flag during live performances.
