(AllHipHop News) Beyoncé has tapped her socially conscious side. Yesterday (Feb. 7),  Bey delivered a politically charged performance during her set at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show. It culminated with her new track “Formation.”

During the iconic delivery, Queen B,  paid homage to a list of people and causes. The humble artist donned a costume that was inspired by the one that Michael Jackson wore back in 1993. The enlightened chanteuse also included a nod to the Black Panther Party. In October of this year, the Panthers will celebrate its 50th anniversary.

Choreographed beret-wearing dancers demonstrated their solidarity. With unity their powerful fists made a statement. Later in the routine, Beyoncé and her dancers emphatically spelled out “X.” The slain Civil Rights leader, Malcolm X, was murdered on Feb. 21, 1965. This month will mark the 51st anniversary of his assassination.

Tina Lawson, Bey’s mother, also snapped a photo with several dancers dressed as Black Panthers. These  passionate performers used to the spotlight to help bring more awareness to the death of Mario Woods. In December of 2015, Mr. Woods was killed at the hands of the San Francisco Police department.

Below, check out the performance and the Instagram pictures.

    Watch some negative sh*t pop up about beyonce in the next few weeks to counteract this.

  • WeakSauce

    You call this a political stand? lol

  • ZUBU

    Bitch go back in the mobile home and fukk your sister/cousin….

  • ZUBU

    Beyoncé is taking a bit of a risk with this move, but I respect it. I’m older so I recall when Ali, Jim Brown, Bill Russell, James Brown, etc. all took huge career risks to help our cause. Not many current celebrities have the nuts and guts took risk their livelihood to voice our concerns…..
    ———————-
    I don’t even listen to her music, but if this stance is real I’m going to support her….

    • Dope

      This is a far cry from what Ali and others did. For Ali a lot more was at stake, dude lost everything he worked hard to get (his titles and a license to box) and lost his freedom as well.

  • In Black America Radio

    The same people who complain when black artist and entertainers do NOTHING!
    are the SAME people who complain when these artist and entertainers do SOMETHING.

    • TruthTalk

      That’s exactly what I noticed. They complain about every little thing.

  • TruthTalk

    Good move by Beyonce. I salute her for standing up for a great cause. More people need to stop being afraid and stand up….

  • You see, this is how you do sh*t. Once you’ve made your money in the music game you’re supposed to step out and take risks for your people. Really you’re supposed to be doing that all the time but America be on some serious hater sh*t if you try it outta the gate. But the fact that she’s doing it says a lot. I still wouldn’t let my daughters give her an ounce of fandom but at least now I can halfway nod my head to at least one or two of her songs without feeling like I spent an hour on some porn sh*t.

    • This a risk ? Is it great free promotion ? Somewhere in between ?

      • WeakSauce

        Free promotion is right. Is she not going on tour soon? Bitch ass move if you ask me.

      • Kinda in between. But if you scan the Black music soundscape there are approximately 1% of Black artists with her status willing to even make that kind of song/video. Granted, it’s the bare minimum but I’ll give the sister props for doing that much when other motherf*ckas won’t even do that (what up Minaj, Drake and Kanye)…..

      “Yeah dude, black women have such an unfair advantage in society dude. It’s bad enough black women are the only ones that get cast for rock, metal, country, pop, and EDM videos… they’re startin to take over R & B dude!”

      Your privilege is showin. As always, I’m here to son you. Your point is totally invalid. Get back to your Eminem cd and take your shoes off when you step in our house.

      • responding with a quote i didnt say and then responding to that quote i didnt say is some fuk bohl shit my dude

        if you tryna son someone come with something better than that

      • RazaBladeKing

        I ain’t gotta try to do a God damned thing, Marshall. It was clear what you were “tryna” do. You wanna conflate “oscars so white” with beyonce’s one off performance, and it belittles both the point of “oscars so white” and the point beyonce made last night. It’s pathetic, and it’s demonstrative of how clueless your privileged, weak ass is, cuz only someone with soy milk in their veins would have even made that observation. You know me now, my son. You know I ain’t playin that shit. And i’m not gonna sully the admirable power move (in this day and age) beyonce made last night by dirtyin up this message board any further dignifyin your f*ckery with a response.

      • so you got the joke, nice.

        oscars so white thing is a joke tho… the point is flawed and deserves being belittled because its silly. everyone who got nominated deserved to get nominated. except for idris elba, but he wasnt not nominated because the color of his skin, its because the movie beasts of no nation is a netflix movie.

        soy milk?? sound like you got koolaid running thru you my dude!! Yeah you better skert outta here bruh. lmfao

      • Hold up…. Hold up…. What?! You’re saying that everyone that was nominated for the Academy Awards deserved it?! You know what? My man Robert Townsend accurately clowned the “Academy” in Hollywood Shuffle. If you haven’t seen that one, check it out. If you’re down with working within an infinitely flawed system and you’re content with a bunch of stick-up-their-asses-wannabe-European-actors jerking themselves off about movies that nobody went to see, then I guess your statement is okay. But if you’re talking about having a system that is a true representation of what America is, from the director, actor and all the way up in the board rooms. I’d say your views are outdated, borderline racist and full of f*ckery.

      • “a system that is a true representation of what America is?”
        what does that even mean? what are you trying to say there? hmmmm….. the awards arent about diversity.. they are about best performances.

        lets use best male actor for an example.. you could take out any 3 of those white guys.. guess who the next best 3 would be? 3 more white guys!! take out 3 and tom hanks(bridge of spies), tom hardy(legend) and johnny depp(black mass) would be next in line., not because they are white.. but because they had the next best acting performance.

        stop being butt hurt and playing victim and step ya game up!!

      • You’re a funny dude. White guys rarely have to step their game up because their ancestors stole that top spot for them, so a White guy telling me to step my game up is hilarious! 😂😂😂😂 It’s good to see you’re a Republican tool but this ain’t about that. Other shades cannot be truly represented because they aren’t in the boardrooms. In there, it’s whiter than rice. So while your position is only looking at the end result (the awards shows), the problem goes much deeper than your milky vision. Why is it that almost all of the Black actors who’ve been fortunate enough to win an Academy Award played slaves getting their asses whipped, criminals, maids or prostitutes? That White perception is a dominating force, entitled youngsta. Sure the Academy has problems but a more accurate assessment would be that all of Hollywood has a big f*cking problem with race. It’s all good though. I ain’t mad atcha for being on your White pride sh*t and wanting to ride that White wave as far as you can. Enjoy. Milk it for all it’s worth (no pun intended). But the US Census says you guys will be the minority in less than 10 years. We’ll check back then and see if you harbor that same opinion. God is the great equalizer. Nobody wins forever. The pendulum always swings the other way.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        everything whites say that is not addressing your millions of child porn vids you gotten away with – is deflecting from the millions of child porn vids you gotten away with
