During Sunday night’s AMAs, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis took a moment to honor Trayvon Martin and hundreds of other teens who have been subject to racial profiling.

“Now that I’m sitting here in front of millions of people, I’d like to address something extremely important to me,” Macklemore told the audience while accepting the award for favorite rap/hip-hop album.

“I was talking to my friend before the show and he reminded me of a great Martin Luther King quote. He said, ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,’ he said.

“Due to the fact that we are in Florida tonight accepting this award, I want to acknowledge Trayvon Martin and the hundreds and hundreds of kids each year that are dying due to racial profiling and the violence that follows it,” Macklemore explained via satellite. “This is really happening. These are our friends, our neighbors, our peers, and our fans, and it’s time that we look out for the youth and fight against racism and the laws that protect it,” he added.

The “Thrift Shop” duo led the night’s nominations with six nods, taking home two.
