Lady Gaga denounces white supremacy.

Lady Gaga speaks out against systems of white supremacy during an acceptance speech for the 'Higher Ground' Award at The King Center.
  

The speech she delivered at the Beloved Community Awards last night was quite powerful. 

Her statement would have been more powerful had she  refused it for a person of colour since it is from an organization that represents Martin Luther King Jr. 

That said, it's admirable she is using her platform to dismantle white supremacy, urging fans to begin the process of "unlearning" white supremacist behaviour ingrained in society. This was Gaga's first appearance of 2021, before she takes to the stage on Wednesday to sing at the Biden-Harris inauguration on January 20th. 

Check out her full speech below.
