SIGN THE PETITION TO TELL ABC TO KEEP JESSE WILLIAMS ON GREY’S ANATOMY

jwWhite Supremacy works in very predictable ways and the practice has not changed in four hundred years. Last week Jesse Williams delivered a powerful and poignant speech about the many injustices African Americans face. Jesse’s speech is an eloquent and passionate call to action against countless unarmed African Americans being murdered at the hands of Police across America. Jesse speech was NOT a Hate speech. I would say real talk.

It was a beautiful demonstration and celebration of his 1st amendment right of free speech. There is talk of boycotting and whites are asking for his removal from the show. Jesse’s speech was reminiscent of the great and brave freedom fighters such as Martin Luther King, Medger Evers, Malcolm X, and Angela Davis, who protested and spoke out against injustices. Jesse Williams also follows in the great Mohammed Ali’s and Harry Belafonte legacy, who passionately dissented against American injustices of their time.

Similar to Mr. Ali, Mr. Williams used his platform to speak for oppressed people of color who are facing injustices and the threat of murder (without indictment) by the police daily. Jesse Williams is a national Treasure. Alice Walker, another of our national treasures, was so inspired by Jesse’s speech, she wrote a beautiful poem about his call to Justice.

Therefore, it is incumbent upon all people and black people in particular to stand with Mr. Williams to make sure and ask ABC to KEEP JESSE on Greys Anatomy. Erin Smith and her very few supporters are misguided in her and their Jim crow like attempts in her petition to silence or punish Jesse Williams, a person of color for using his first amendment right to speak the truth. ABC, do not punish Jesse Williams for speaking the truth. Keep Jesse Williams on Greys Anatomy.
