White People Have Found a Way to Make Jesse Williams’ Speech About Black Lives Matter About Them

I’m so tired of white people. After Jesse Williams gave this speech

at the BET awards calling out police brutality and cultural appropriation, white people took a little rhythmless awkward shuffle over to make it about them. A petition to get him fired from Grey’s Anatomy for being racist is going around and it’s pretty hilarious.

Jesse Williams spewed a racist, hate speech against law enforcement and white people at the BET awards. If this was a white person making the same speech about an African American, they would have been fired and globally chastised, as they should be, but there has been no consequences to Williams’ actions. 

For one, racism only works with an infrastructure to back it up. While a black guy might hate me for being white, that’s not really gonna limit my job opportunities or end up with a cop bashing my head in for no reason. No one is gonna tell me I’m ugly or violent or less than based on my skin tone and nothing else. Sit down crackerjacks.

The petition, started by Erin Smith, has over 4,000 signatures so far and she has a special message for those calling her a sack of shit or assuming her ass is as pasty and flimsy as her stupid opinions.

A special note to all the people making assumptions: Who said I was white? Who said I’m a Trump supporter? This is not about politics. This is about equal consequences for racist behavior.

Lol, let me let you in on a secret. Shonda Rhimes is black and, unlike Erin Mayonnaise, has had to deal with actual racism. Like she’s gonna give a shit about any petition trying to call out Jesse Williams for being real about some of the defining shit of our time.

That’s what I fucking thought.

Wasn’t that the tantrum where white boy blamed “whiteness” for ghetto culture? Nobody, especially no white person, is forcing you to act like gangsta fools, walking around with your pants down. And “appropriation”? This whiny kid hasn’t contributed anything to the black culture that’s being “appropriated”/celebrated. And sorry, culture isn’t a toy you can claim for your own like you’re a selfish child in kindergarten. White boy never whined about black crimes rates, black on black crime, black on white crime, the culture of “black fatherhood”. No empowerment, just victimhood. And just like a child “sit down” = “waaaah, I… Read more »

“For one, racism only works with an infrastructure to back it up.” That is the biggest lie and pile of horseshit spewed by racists. That is only one definition of it, and there are many others not requiring infrastructure to be included. Prejudice does not require infrastructure. Infrastructure can certainly make it worse, but racism is racism. And this is the newest excuse by those who spew hate and prejudice then act like it is ok because they are minorities. The problem will never get better until everyone loses their prejudices. Everyone.
