Musical artists Macklemore & Ryan Lewis took a moment to honor Trayvon Martin at the American Music Awards Sunday night.
While accepting an award for favorite rap/hip-hop album, Macklemore quoted Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., before speaking out about slain Florida teen, Trayvon Martin.
Due to the fact that we are in Florida tonight accepting this award, I want to acknowledge Trayvon Martin and the hundreds and hundreds of kids each year that are dying due to racial profiling and the violence that follows it, Macklemore, whose given name is Ben Haggarty, said. This is really happening. These are our friends, our neighbors, our peers, and our fans, and its time that we look out for the youth and fight against racism and the laws that protect it.
The musical duo have been known for promoting social justice on divisive issues in the past. The song Same Love, a top hit off their award winning album, The Heist, openly addresses homophobia and supports marriage equality.....

Martin & Lewis, gone all new school
They look like a couple of fags.
“The musical duo have been known for promoting social justice on divisive issues in the past. The song Same Love, a top hit off their award winning album, The Heist, openly addresses homophobia and supports marriage equality.....”
Yeah. Look like
Two white dudes I would not mind seeing getting Knockout Game or Polar Bear Hunted. Nothing demonstrates stupidity more than effete white folks condoning black violence
Thank God the AMA folks gave Best New Artist to Ariana Grande instead of Mucklemore
I saw part of it, a very small part but I don’t know any of these ‘artists’.
BTW, they've just changed our logo:
Until I spotted the article, I’d never heard of them. What’s up with white rappers and hip-hop musicians?
This is really happening. These are our friends, our neighbors, our QUEERS, and our fans, and its time that we look out for the youth and fight FOR racism and the laws that protect it.
I’m stealing that. I heard they’re keeping Muschamp.
He must have photos of Foley and Machen diddling kids.
Well it’ the AMA or what I like to call “The karaoke awards”. You aren’t dealing with people on the high end of the IQ scale in the first place. 3000 blacks murdered every 6 month by other blacks? Oh, what’s that?
Never heard of ‘em—but certainly not anyone I want to be near.
Have you seen this yet?
We can only hope that these guys get enriched by the diversity they so love and deserve.
Yawn... dog bites man PC crap...
How about a song for the victims of the knockout game? Get creative losers...
Is that real?
Then again, gangsta wannabes practice the art of the deadpan cold stare.
Looked like something straight of out Electric Football, you know how when sometimes the players would get their arms intertwined?
