Poll Context: Jesse Williams, an actor in Grey’s Anatomy, is being celebrated by many left-wingers across the country for his ‘courageous’ speech on race at the Black Entertainment (BET) Awards on Sunday evening.
The truth: it takes no courage to tell an audience of black entertainers that white America is the problem.
As Reported in Breitbart:
Williams launched into a political diatribe, praising the activists marching in the streets against “a system built to divide and impoverish and destroy us.” What system? The one run by Barack Obama? Williams did not say.

All well and good, except that the woman who nurtured him in particular is white. That does not mean he owes a debt to all white people (how absurd), or cannot appreciate black women, but it does suggest he feels a need to prove his own racial authenticity.
He continued: “Now, what we’ve been doing is looking at the data and we know that police somehow manage to deescalate, disarm and not kill white people everyday.”
