From actor Jesse Williams’ award acceptance speech at the BET Awards, June 2016.
And let’s get a couple things straight, just a little sidenote – the burden of the brutalized is not to comfort the bystander.That’s not our job, alright – stop with all that. If you have a critique for the resistance, for our resistance, then you better have an established record of critique of our oppression. If you have no interest, if you have no interest in equal rights for black people then do not make suggestions to those who do. Sit down.
Incidentally, in response to this speech, someone started a petition to have Jesse Williams fired from his job acting on Gray’s Anatomy. Over 27,000 people have signed it so far. Tell me again how anti-SJWs are soooooo in favor of free speech?
