Twitter goes in for Jesse Williams’ unapologetic speech and we so here for it #BETAwards

Until tonight, Jesse Williams was best-known for his “Grey’s Anatomy” role, but a lot has changed. There is a lot of injustice going on in the world, especially where race is concerned. Despite the tough race relations, the topic is never properly addressed.

Jesse Williams won the Humanitarian Award at the BET Awards and his speech did more than tough on this. Doing what no one else would, he ripped the band-aid off. Demanding a change, Jesse Williams sounds ready to back up his tough talk with action.

In the middle of all of the celebration, the BET audience on Twitter got real serious real quick. They agreed, wholeheartedly, with what Williams was saying and they were here for it. An hour later, they are still flooding Twitter with praise for Jesse and his tough, wise, words.
