Awareness Is Key
It should be noted that Macklemore's acceptance speech at the AMAs should be applauded and should make people everywhere think a little harder about the prejudices and injustices that occur daily in this country. While accepting his award, he quoted Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and went on to remember Trayvon Martin's senseless death since he was accepting live from Miami before a show. See what he said below:
“I want to acknowledge Trayvon Martin and the hundreds and hundreds of kids each year that are dying due to racial profiling and the violence that follows it. This is really happening. These are our friends, our neighbors, our peers, and our fans, and it’s time that we look out for the youth, and fight against racism and the laws that protect it.”
