“Listen, we all know our world is really tense right now,” Queen expressed during her honoree speech. “I’m hoping that we can somehow manage to channel all of these emotions that we have in a positive way, and really do something to change our world. I don’t care how much or things I have, or Puff has, or Missy has… If I go outside and try to hail a cab and he passes me for the white woman standing right there, that racism is still alive and kicking. And we have to change that. I’m not blaming the white lady, she needed a cab too. I’m just saying we need to change this attitude.”
