Jessie Willams became every womans #MCM after his speech at the Bet Awards. Grey’s Anatomy actor and social justice advocate Jesse Williams was honored with BET’s Humanitarian Award. His inspirational acceptance speech shook the crowd and the internet. “The more we learn about who we are and how we got here, the more we will mobilize.” Williams speech reflected on injustices in America targeted towards the African-American community.”This award is not for me. It’s for the real organizers across the country: the activists, the civil rights attorneys, the struggling parents … that are realizing that a system built to divide and impoverish and destroy us cannot stand.” He not only spoke to ordinary people, but to celebrities demonstrating how they should use their voices for a greater cause and not just materialist pleasure.”The thing is, though. All of us in here getting money? That alone isn’t gonna stop this. Dedicating our lives — dedicating our lives to getting money just to give it right back, for someone’s brand on our body. When we spent centuries praying with brands on our bodies. And now we pray to get paid for brands on our bodies.”
