The BET Awards were established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television network to celebrate African Americans and other minorities in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment.

Mr. Jessie Williams delivered a passionate speech that has gone viral after he accepted the year’s humanitarian award. The Greys Anatomy actor, and former teacher, is also on the board of the Advancement Project, a national civil rights organisation.

Quite a speech if ye fancy listening, in the link below. It's raw honesty and eloquence was powerful.

Jesse is white and his speech was hate speech, plain and simple. Dangerous and divisive.

what a fooking D1ckhead, playing the "populist Victim" to fellow millionaires that wear it like a get out of free jail card regarding real issues, black on black crime, huge single mother numbers, blame whitey for fooking everything even though whitey and the rest have given them the richest and most advanced economy in the world (it was a Black party so "them" is self imposed, they chose to separate themselves from the Community, there ain't no White awards party)

The sh1te talk reference about whitey stealing our genius etc,,

yeah buddy Nasa and the Nobel science guys are still waiting , so are the rest of us ,

It was like a Mass group think of what new ways whitey can be blamed !, utterly divisive getting all political and not mentioning how useless Bam has been, no mention of all the "positive discrimination" or the Oscars boycott because not enough black actors and actresses were nominated ?

Rattle, pram, victim mentality, denial of reality, real world does not care for colour, only talent and brains.

God be with the days when black American heroes were Jackie Robinson and Rosa Parks and kids being denied access to schools.

Not drug dealers and muggers.
