I know this doesn’t tie in to what my blog is about, but I thought it should be posted on my blog. Earlier tonight on the BET awards Jesse Williams activist/ actor was awarded with the Humanitarian award. While giving his speech Jesse starts talking about having equal rights for African Americans and calling for an end of police brutality against African Americans. He then began to compare spending on brands and clothes we wear to back then when slaves were branded by there owners to identify who they belong to. Jesse Williams speech was great and empowering that he got a standing ovation and was probably one of the highlights of the BET awards.
