First of all, let me be clear that I applaud anyone that attempts to offer up solutions to stop this bloodletting and death that is resulting from interactions between law enforcement and African-Americans.

The problem I do have with some of these ideas and solutions is they tend to somehow put the responsibility of staying out of harms way on the citizen by suggesting they make certain concessions and capitulations other ethnic groups never have to do. Those suggestions alone underscore the glaring fact that there is something larger looming when it comes to law enforcement’s attitudes toward African-Americans.

“The two women that actually found me passed out on the floor after I left somebody’s bachelor party and put me in rehab the next day. And supported me and pushed me and give me a reason to get up and go and chase it day after day after day.”

On Sunday, June 29th, 2016 Samuel L. Jackson stood on stage at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles California and accepted the 2016 BET Lifetime Achievement Award.

The 67-year-old actor did not hesitate to extol accolades upon his wife LaTanya Richardson, 66, and their 34-year-old daughter Zoe for urging him to go to rehab after finding him passed out on the floor after a night of partying.

Jesse Williams Has Bet it All On Black — Medium

Grey’s Anatomy’s Jesse Williams won the annual 2016 BET Humanitarian Award.

After accepting the award, the speech he gave validated his earning such recognition.

That speech was more talked about than the red carpet fashions — and it should have been too.

Jesse could have accepted his award and gave the standard thank you speech and returned to the lofty perch of acting and entertaining as all the other award winners did.

He didn’t do that.

He saw a platform that presented an opportunity to call out some very serious issues plaguing Blacks in this country.

He seized the opportunity and used it for all it was worth.

The 34-year old actor and activist began his politically and race charged call to action by shining the light of moment on those that are fighting for change and those living under the black clouds of injustice and systemic oppression in this country.
