Congrats to all the winners from Friday’s NAACP Image Awards. John Legend gave a dynamic acceptance speech as the President Award winner. He is optimist for change in the criminal justice system and empowered today’s generation to take positive action.
“Today, communities of color are still being crushed by a criminal justice system that over-polices us, over-arrests us, over-incarcerates us, and disproportionately takes the lives of our young people because of the simple fact that our skin conjures the image of threat and violence. Despite the daunting problems we face I am hopeful that our generation will demand and achieve radical change in our lifetime.”
