Jesse Williams’ Courageous BET Acceptance Speech

imageIf you did not know about the work that Jesse Williams has done that earned him the B.E.T. 2016 Humanitarian award, now you do.

In case you did not see the speech,  view it on this link:

Jesse is being compared to another great actor and humanitarian, Harry Belafonte.

What a great way to get both the young and more mature people to understand the complexity  while giving solutions to our problems.

What a great time, before a very important presidential election start an open discussion our plight.

I want to take the liberty of paraphrasing Jesse’s dynamic message:

1) you are enough…beautiful and uniquely made!

2) you do not have to change who you are…assimilating is not the answer

3) think about what we are doing.
