Chance the Rapper had everyone at the BET Awards on their feet and cheering after he gave one HELL of an acceptance speech demanding justice in the black community … and Michelle Obama even gave him a shout out. Chance took home the BET Humanitarian Award Sunday in L.A. for all his work helping out the Chicago public school system and its students — with money, shows and engagement in his hometown.
During his acceptance speech, Chance made an impassioned plea to the federal government, juries and courts and a number of other institutions to deliver justice to black people … those locked up for minor drug offenses; those killed by police; and schools getting screwed by higher-ups. Like we said … the crowd loved it. And if that wasn’t enough … Michelle had some kind words for Chance before he stole the show himself.
