Grey’s Anatomy Fans Vowing To Never Watch The Show Again Until Jesse Williams Is Fired ?

People are really hating on Jesse Williams and his speech at the BET Music awards, fans are tweeting the show’s main Twitter page, flooding the show’s official FB page, asking the writers/producers to fire Jesse. They think he hates white people and is dividing the country.

They’re trying to compare it to the infamous Isaiah Washington situation which got him black balled for a while… What they don’t understand is that his peers who are white themselves, loved his speech. Shonda Rimes is not going to fire Jesse Williams if anything she’s a “WOKE’ sista herself so good luck with that…

She tweeted this once she was able to get a good signal because she was vacationing in the woods:

On top of that the Color Purple author Alice Walker was so inspired by Jesse’s speech she wrote a poem in honor of his moving speech; read it below:

“We’ve been floating this country on credit for centuries, yo, and we’re done watching and waiting while this invention called whiteness uses and abuses us, burying black people out of sight and out of mind, while extracting our culture, our dollars, our entertainment like oil, black gold,” he continued. “Ghettoizing and demeaning our creations, then stealing them, gentrifying our genius and then trying us on like costumes before discarding our bodies like rinds of strange fruit. The thing is, though, the thing is that just because we’re magic, doesn’t mean we’re not real.”

Many have supported Williams in the aftermath. Walker, 72, wrote her poem about “fear of blackness in white culture.” At the end of the piece of writing, she appeared to call Williams a “beautiful son.”

“Try to think bigger than you ever have or had courage enough to do: that blackness is not where whiteness wanders off to die: but that it is like the dark matter between stars and galaxies in the Universe,” she wrote. “That ultimately holds it all together.”
