R.I.P MCA, Adam Yauch from the Beastie Boys
I grew up a big fan of theirs when I was in high school – so when I heard of Adam’s death today – this brave moment came to mind. The year was 1998, and yet MCA had the bravery and foresight to address the already growing problem of Islamophobia in America. Nowadays, too few celebs are willing to risk their money or career to speak their conscience or stand up for what’s right. Yauch was one of the few to do just that. Forward to the 6:40 mark to hear his speech.
