Lady Gaga against racism: The African-American community represents the best of our nation
Famous singer, Lady Gaga is one of the most powerful voices against racism. The music star recently gave a speech on racial justice while accepting the "Higher Ground Award" at Saturday's "Beloved Community" virtual ceremony.
The Higher Ground Award is an award given by the non-profit organization The King Center in Atlanta, which was founded in 1968 by Coretta Scott King in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
"I have not lost the color of my skin in this very radical period of time. "I am aware that I come before you as Stefani Germanotta, the name I was born with, and as Lady Gaga, a famous white woman who enjoys great fame," she said.
After dedicating the award to all people of color in America, Gaga addressed whites with the words: “The lives of blacks matter in this country. Being a member of the African-American community matters. To all of you who belong to the white race, I tell you that this community represents the best of our nation, and I believe that we have a responsibility to accept the truth about the history of our state, to accept that racial differences and the privileges of being whites are unhealthy for society, change attitudes towards people of color and contribute to a world where freedom is real for all. '' - said further the music star.
Among other things, Lady Gaga confirmed the news that she will perform the American national anthem, at the inauguration of Joe Biden president on Wednesday, January 20th.
