Megan Thai Stallion was the guest performer at the season premiere Saturday Night Live This weekend, her strong message of “Protecting Black Women” continues to make waves on social media. The rapper began performing her hit song “Savage,” and, between verses, she gave a new meaning to the title with a discourse on systemic racism. This included a stylized passage reading: “Protecting Black Women.”
Megan Thee Stallion’s song was interrupted while performing audio clips of speeches by Malcolm X and activist Tameka Mallory, as Megan and her dancers switched from white and black to red and black. “The most disrespectful, unprotected and neglected person in America is the black woman,” Malcolm X said in a decades-old audio clip, while the Mallory clip was an indictment of Kentucky State Attorney Daniel Cameron for his handling of the Briona Taylor case. Then Megan herself said, “We need to protect our black women, and we love our black women, because at the end of the day, we need our black women.”
“We need to protect our black men, and defend our black men, because at the end of the day, we are tired of seeing the hashtags of our black men,” she added, before returning to the chorus of her song. .
This performance was the highlight of the night for some SNL Viewers who attended the show expected satirical political comments and comments at the right time. Many spent hours dissecting the audio clips, and set the other nuances of this show “Savage”. Here’s a look at the response to Megan Thee’s Stallion performance on “Protecting Black Women” on Saturday.
Black women deserve this energy (* that level of courage *) from others, but they never get it from anyone but themselves. Embarrassing fact about American life.

She donated too much money to food stores and damaged local Houston relief as well as donating cash through CashApp in the amount of $ 500 at a time. So yeah.
