Lady Gaga Tells Class Of 2020 To Destroy Racism During Graduation Speech

“You are watching what is a pivotal moment in this country’s evolution. You are watching society change in a deeply important way.

Lady Gaga gave one of the most empowering speeches of her career during YouTube’s Dear Class of 2020 virtual graduation ceremony.

The singer was one of the event’s high-profile commencement speakers, and she told graduates that she had originally recorded her message two weeks ago before a black man and father named George Floyd was murdered by a white police officer in Minneapolis.

The Grammy-winning singer said she had to rewrite her speech. She painted a picture of racism in America as a malignant forest that needs to be uprooted in her graduation speech.

“You are watching what is a pivotal moment in this country’s evolution. You are watching society change in a deeply important way. This change will be slow, and we will have to be patient. But change will happen and it will be for the better,” she shared.

Gaga continued, “All of us are being invited to challenge that system and think about how to affect real change. I believe in my heart that people who are going to make this change happen are listening to me speak right now. I know this is true because it’s you who are the seeds of the future. You are the seeds that will grow into a new and different forest that is far more beautiful and loving than the one we live in today.”

She then spoke of the three ways that racism will stop: Time, sufficient effort and divine grace.

“We can control time and sufficient effort. We can’t control divine grace, but I believe divine grace is the faith we can choose to place in each other, to prosper lovingly and effectively,” Gaga said.
