Pharrell drops social injustice speech at Hip-Hop Honors; Twitter praise dances

MESSAGE…

Hip-Hop’s Skateboard P, Pharrell Williams, rolled through television land to drop some much need knowledge on the masses, cautioning heads against playing deaf, dumb, and blind to social injustices.

BOOOOOOM…

While momentarily incorporating an extremely important “stay-woke” moment into VH1’s annual celebration of urban excellence during Monday evening’s Hip-Hop Honors: 90s Game Changers ceremony, the 44-year-old N.E.R.D. music maven urged viewers to “open your eyes” to the wrongdoings of the powers that be…

“Everybody at home right now watching this and acting like ya’ll don’t see what’s going on out there, you gotta open your eyes,” Pharrell began before introducing Hip-Hop Honors honoree, Hype Williams.

“Open your eyes. You keep saying you don’t see what’s going on on television—what’s happening to us—open your eyes. And if you look like I look, then you know how we got here. But we’re here, and we’re not leaving. So what are we gonna do? And for everybody else in this country, the human condition is important,” he said. “Don’t think because they’re coming at the African-Americans and the Jewish community and the Hispanics that it can’t be you too just because you look like them. They’re using you.”

Snoop Dogg’s “Beautiful” collaborator continued, “You should understand ’they’ can change their minds and it might not be about Black, White, big, skinny or small. It could be about facial features. It might be about hair color. Don’t act like they didn’t do that before.”

After acknowledging that he’d gone totally off-script with his heavily-weighted message, the super-producer added, “This is where we are right now. Me, I’m just a tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny, little musician. Like little small, tiny musician, but I’m African American. African means that’s what in me, American means thats where I am right now. So if this is where I am and this is America, it’s for liberty and justice for all.”
