Tell your friends to pull up. That’s what Rihanna said during her speech while receiving the President’s Award at the NAACP Image Awards on Saturday.
The musician, philanthropist and business mogul delivered her speech with ease, enjoining everyone to come together to fight for the rights of minorities.
It’s not a fight for just women, she shared, or poor people, or black people. It’s everyone’s fight, and everyone must join hands in making the world a better place.
If there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s that we can fix this world together. We can’t do it divided. I cannot emphasize that enough. We can’t let the de-sensitivity seep in. The, ‘If it’s your problem, then it’s not mine; it’s a woman’s problem; it’s a black people problem; it’s a poor people problem.
Watch her speak:
