Jesse Williams Brought Magic to the BET Awards
Jesse Williams y'all. This is a MAN right here. Can I say how taken aback I was by his honesty, power and truth when he delivered his acceptance speech for getting the Humanitarian Award from BET last night? And OF COURSE, I LOVE the way he started his message off by thanking all the activists, fighters, parents, teachers, etc. out there on the Front Lines. And then he gave us this: "This is also for the Black Women, in particular, who have spent their lifetimes dedicated to nurturing everyone before themselves. We Can and Will do better for you." That's like Music to my EARS J -- MUSIC to my ears! You MUST listen to this ENTIRE speech. And he ended it with a line that really could be part of a poem. He just needs to write it.
"Just because we're magic doesn't mean we're not real."
