Jesse Williams receives the Humanitarian Award at the 2016 BET Awards
Really I just wanted to put this speech on my blog – because it’s amazing. They seemed to have cracked down on showing it on YouTube, so I added this tweet with it embedded. If you haven’t watched it yet, watch it.
I have to say, there is one funny moment when the whole hall goes silent after he called the freedom promised in the after life a hustle. But let’s be real, religion has been used as a tool for oppression since its inception. Spirituality is the key that rings true within us all. Knowledge means power, and power can’t help but corrupt someone who is not fixed in wisdom, but knows of its secrets.
Of course, that’s not what this speech was about. – Just a side note from yours truly.
