The internet, and pretty much any equal rights warrior who isn’t living under a rock has gone cookoo over the amazing speech that Jesse Williams gave as he accepted his BET humanitarian award.
The opinions have been mixed as there are many people in this country. Some have clapped strong and hard, while others accuse him of being divisive. Some state that his light skin color gives him this privilege, while others who were darker said the same thing without a similar response. One example I saw was Kendrick Lamar’s album.
Needless to say, as with anything else, there will be many different opinions. It is my great pleasure to share with you folks a counter to “The Blaze” contributor Tomi, from one of my poetry world friends, J.F. Seary. Check out the powerful and pointed response that she provides to “Final Thought with Tomi” b.s analysis!
She may have been finished but I’m just getting started. If you want to have a discussion about Tomi Lahren’s video, about Jesse Williams’ speech or any issues about race, colorism, power, politics etc post below. You can agree, disagree, challenge, play devil’s advocate it’s all good.
Please note the date on a post, it may be an old view. Growth and change.
