The musical legend was performing at the British Summer Time Festival this past week when he took a moment to let the 65,000-plus crowd how he felt about Black Lives Matter, according to The BoomBox.
“I encourage you to choose love over hate. It’s just that simple,” he told the mostly white audience. “Choose love over hate, right over wrong, kind over meanness. Hope over no hope at all.”
“Which brings me to another point. Yes, all life does matter, but the reason that I say that black lives matter is because we are the original people of this world,” he added. “So in essence, everybody here has some black in you. And for those of you who don’t agree with me, I love you but I don’t give a f*ck.”
Well, if there were ever any doubts that Stevie didn’t keep it real, those should all be put to rest. Like, now.
