The Problem Is “Whiteness”

“Grey’s Anatomy” actor Jesse Williams, who earned the humanitarian award for his efforts as an activist, gave a fiery, nearly six-minute speech that brought the audience to its feet and earned a rousing applause.

“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, ghettoizing and demeaning our creations then stealing them; gentrifying our genius and trying us on like costumes before discarding our bodies,” he said onstage.

Williams was introduced by BET CEO Debra Lee, who spoke about gun violence and brought up the recent Orlando shooting at the Pulse nightclub.

“We all need to take stance against gun violence. You can make a difference,” Lee said onstage. “Use your voice and vote.”

When “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson won best actress, she encouraged the audience to vote against presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

“I’m really not political but it’s serious out here, and for those who thing that, you know, ‘Oh he’s not going to win’ — think again. So we really need to pull together and turn this country around,” she said.

Co-host Tracee Ellis Ross said she was supporting Hillary Clinton and reminded viewers several times to “get yourself registered!” Clinton has a past with BET: She appeared at BET’s “Black Girls Rock!” event in April and told the audience “my life has been changed by strong black women leaders.”

  1. We live in a time when blacks have it better than ever before, and yet they seem more dissatisfied than ever. I guess my late father was right thirty years ago when he said to me, “Son, they’ll never be happy no matter how much we give in, because they’ll never be white.”
    I thought he was out of touch back then. Funny how much wiser thirty years can make a man.

  2. Bla Bla Whitey Whitey,
    However, where’s the black owned production companies?
    Where is the Black owned corporate structure to carry your ass?
    You people enter contracts. If they aren’t fair why sign them?
    You aren’t being victimized, you’re being coddled.
    Your pacifiers are the affectations of wealth
    I don’t care how much talent you have, if you don’t have the corporate structure (provided by whitey) you may as well beat on a log like Kunte Kinte

  3. I guess if he comes to the ER and only white skin doctors are available
    he’ll want to wait for the black skin doctors.
    Blacks wrote the book on racism.

  4. Yep, I PAY for muh privilege, every two weeks. It’s called “Federal Withholding”. Then, when I drive down certain streets, I get to see my tax dollars at work in the form of liquor stores with “We Accept EBT” signs, nice rides with expensive rims and sound systems that can be heard on the moon, hair and nail salons on every other corner and devastated, ruined “public housing”.

    Yep. I pay for it.

  5. This crap is and has been stoked by the mentally diseased commie racist in the White House. A change for the good is going to come.

  6. Does he know he is on tv cause he is black?
    There has been a huge push to put a black on every show and commercial.
    Watch old Seinfeld shows when there are out of the apt.
    There is always a two shot (two whites talking) with a black in the back round. It’s actually
    damn funny.

  7. There was a time when I had more black friends than any white person you’ve ever known. I don’t mean black people I knew, I mean men I thought were my friends. I went to their homes for picnics and to watch games on TV, played handball at City Park with them and they came to mine. My first home was in the black part of Denver called 5 Points which I bought in the mid 70s.

    Over the years I came to realize there were no more racist group of people I have ever met than blacks. Everything damn thing was looked at through their black colored glasses. In turn, every one of my so called friends ended up scamming me, lying to me or just flat out theft.

    When I would stay with my father in S Philly back in the summers in the 60s, my Italian family would try and disabuse me of my notion that they were like us. Time has taught me that they were spot on the money. To that end, I self segregate. I know Fur would be happy to have a black conservative neighbor but I’d just as soon not have anything to do with them. And I don’t.

    I like to say that 95% of them are ruining it for the other 5%. Theres several million good black people that want nothing more then to raise their families and seek the best, like all of us do, for our children. That leaves 37 million niggers and they can go fuck themselves.

  8. Did that Dindu accuse whites of gentrifying their ‘genius’? Really? How stupid must a person be to allow their genius to be overtaken. After slamming whites and proclaiming their brilliant independence they say they’re voting for a Clinton. Thats a great way to place your genius on display. Throw your blessed vote to the party that keeps their foot on your necks and has for generations.

  9. For many years, several downtown streets get shut down and Cincinnati has the wildly popular Taste of Cincinnati where restaurants and food trucks from all over town sell examples of their specialties. Everybody is welcome, and everybody comes. Now all of a sudden someone feels it necessary to have Black Taste of Cincinnati. Why?

  10. Hillary’s acceptance speech to BET:

    “I want to thank you niggers in advance for your votes, now get back to pickin my cotton, and driving me around.”
    “Oh, and stay the fuck out of my neighborhoods!”

  11. .. we really need to pull together and turn this country around,” she said.

    Seven and a half years of the #Bruthuh (He’s kinda like gahd, just kinda hovering all over the world) admin .. WhyTF do “they” need to turn the country around ??

  12. So. . .. . BET ISN’T “racist”?
    Yet if I were to put together a WET, it WOULD be “racist”?

    Fuck you!

  13. Damn, judging by their comments you would think they were working for King Leopold, cutting rubber trees and being abused and robbed by their own people.
    Instead they are probably all millionaires, living better than the Clampetts.
    Fresh out of pity, sorry.

  14. I’m about as white as you can get but I do not flaunt my whiteness above others- I don’t carry a sign with- WLM white lives matter around the block looking for a free hand-out. I have paid my dues working since I was 16 and now I just want to enjoy my retirement without having to listen to all the crap daily. Grow up-do unto others as you want them to do to you-but don’t mess with me or family–I will kick your azz…… 🙂 have a good day.

  15. If the blacks are so miserably unhappy living among us white devils, why the fuck are they not moving back to that tower of human civilization, Africa, where they can live solely among their own kind, as they apparently desire?

    We certainly do not need them. I wonder if the reverse is true?

  16. I am suffering terribly with the new
    “White Man’s Burden of having to watch
    13% of the population infect 90% of
    my Television programs with bad their
    bad attitudes, foul language and hateful
    rat scratch noises they call “music”.

  17. Funny this goon should mention gentrification. The black version of gentrifying a neighbourhood usually involves a formerly nice area that gets settled and black gentrified by some franchisees of the Crips and/or the Bloods.

    With the group that was onstage maybe they should be talking about Black Privilege because I suspect that just about everyone of them got where they are because of color not because of pure talent.

  18. Nothing sadder than a useful idiot being usefully idiotic.
    Take your shit (and “genius”) to Angola, Uganda, Nigeria, Somalia, Chad, Niger, Benin, Congo, South Africa, Namibia, Sudan, or the Central African Republic and see how you fare.
    Good luck and See Ya!
    Hope you enjoy your new African “necklace!”

    izlamo delenda est …

  19. Wait…

    Shondra Rhimes (black woman) is the creator of Grey’s Anatomy and several other successful television productions. Jesse Williams (black man) is a successful actor in the series. BET is a successful black cable franchise. All of this in a country that elected a minority (black man)President twice.

    Tell me again how Whiteness is “using and abusing” these African Americans? Why does his speech receive such a rousing response? Wow, have I been completely underestimating the black hatred of whites?

  20. The problem with Whiteness, is that we’re the only ones who understand the concept of a maintenance schedule

  21. If whitey stopped spending his hard earned cash on this so-called entertainment, this guy would be working at the car wash.
