‘What about black pain is so fun to you?’ Jesse Williams talks ‘whiteness’
Actor Jesse Williams is best known for his role as Dr. Jackson Avery on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.” However, he also serves on the board of directors of the civil rights think tank The Advancement Project and began his career teaching American, African and African-American History in low-income Philadelphia public charter schools.
It was likely the teacher in Williams that led him Tuesday to deliver a “Human Decency Twitterganza” on the shooting death of Michael Brown and more general concepts of whiteness and blackness. Buckle in for this one.
Is that a subtweet directed toward TPM’s Josh Marshall?
Wait a second now — when precisely did we jump from “you loud few” to “millions of you”?
What do Williams’ followers think?
