Some Black Men Were In Their Feelings After Jesse Williams Praised Black Women at the BET Awards

Avatar • Jun 28, 2016

The 16th annual BET Awards ceremony was held in Los Angeles this past Sunday. Through all the comedic bits and star-studded performances (Bey herself came through to perform her black power anthem Freedom with Kendrick Lamar) the most memorable moment came from actor and activist Jesse Williams. Williams accepted his humanitarian award and gave one of the most poignant and moving speeches in the history of the ceremony.

Many likened Williams words to poetry as he eloquently rejected systemic racism, black celebrity consumerism and cultural appropriation. But the line that had many black folks talking was his explicit uplifting of black women.

But some black men felt a way about Jesse Williams’ unabashed celebration of black womanhood.

Some black women eloquently responded to the ignorant critiques with receipts.

Here are the facts; in a society where black women face higher rates of sexual, emotional and physical violence than other ethnicities of women, we find ourselves with very few public defenders.

When popular London nightclub DSTRKT refused entry to dark-skinned black women, very few black male entertainers spoke out — despite having performed at or attended the club. Singer Omarion was the only black male American entertainer to boycott the establishment. And last year — in the thick of Black Lives Matter — barely anyone showed up for a NY protest for Rekia Boyd, who was shot in the head and killed by police while standing in a Chicago park.

It is heartbreaking to compare this to the outpouring of public support high profile black women have shown black men. From Beyonce paying homage to Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and others in Lemonade, to Janelle Monae’s protest anthem Hell You Talmbout, black women consistently fall in line for black men, but find that the crowds thin considerably when we need support on issues of sexual and domestic violence, and culturally accepted misogyny.

Jesse Williams is one of the few and only high profile black men who has used a public platform to praise and ‘rep’ black women. And it was just ONE LINE. It is very disturbing that some men feel that black women do not deserve ONE SENTENCE of affirmation on prime time television.

I don’t know why anyone is surprised by these black male reactions. Black men have a scapegoat (black women), black women do not–hence as to why we tend to have a full scope (racism, sexism) of the issues plaguing us as a people. Black men have a blind spot–patriachy, which allows them some refuge for their failures in society as a whole, while black women do not any for their failures in society as a whole. I believe, this has led more of us to evolve (education, entrepeuner) and make changes to better ourselves a lot quicker than black men.… Read more »

I’m not surprised that our black men would have backlash towards Jesse Williams. They have NO respect for US as black women. I’m speaking as a dark skinned black woman. The ignorance among other cultures is one thing, but to have our own kind NEVER give us our props is one thing. I find it VERY interesting that Jesse Williams is from a white mom and a black father…however he IDENTFIES himself as being a black man! Finally a man that gets it! I’ve asked the question numerous times to men that were bi-racial…particularly (black man, white woman) do you… Read more »

How many dark skinned men have said they don’t want to have children with dark women? How many have exalted light skin and light eyes? How many have told us our natural hair is ugly? Sure, there are plenty of people touting the same message, but Jesse took that moment to speak up. There are plenty who have the opportunity to build us up but don’t. Be mad at yourself that you were too timid.

Instead of using our energy to defend and support black men who don’t reciprocate, black women need to wake up and move our energy elsewhere. Save that energy and financial support to advance ourselves instead of continuously assisting black men who have shown time and time again that we aren’t worth it to them. If they wanna praise Becky, well let Becky do their bidding and marching and back rubbing.

Why do we say “society” when we really mean black males ??? Society learns how to treat every race of women based on the efforts the men make. This is not rocket science to any other group. Let’s stop blaming “society” when we know who teaches everyone that black women have no value.

Totally not true. Anyone who has studied American history knows this is not true. America had laws that treated women as inferior to men. Even Christianity has treated women as inferior to men. Society even gave black men the right to vote before white or black women were given the right to vote. The evidence is in the history books.

They were/are embarrassed and ashamed that this bold, educated, & beautiful man took them to tasks for their shortcomings as it pertains to black women. I also find it quite interesting Mr Williams social/political views & incite; while being raised by a white mother/black father dynamic. We all know Mothers are the nurturers & teachers within the household. So for me this is very interesting. I’d love to know her background.

One thing I can say is that if BW keep supporting BM, the BM can never say that we never supported them as an excuse to belittle us. (This can also be my naivety/inexperience speaking as well since this method will have us looking stupid trying to be there for someone who isn’t here for us). But, I only support BM (and people in general) who aren’t ignorant, so the ignorant ones can go fall into a pit for all I care.

HP, the term “brother” is a term of endearment. Black men don’t act like someone to expect a Brother (in the true sense of the word) to act.

Jesse is Biracial. Black men are too cowardly to five a speech like that. Actually black man has fallen to the bottom years ago but is a solid fixture on the bottom of the barrel with Biracial men way over them in looks and accomplishment. Truth be told, Obama was Biracial & was president, not black men. Black men are so far at the bottom wild animals and even dogs get more respect.

Maybe this has to do more with the fact that my father was a black opportunistic narcissist but I kind of think this is the mentality of a lot of black men.

The majority of BM whether light/dark skin you see in Hollywood (they are underrepresented in this field anyway) or the Sports World are not representative of ordinary BM.

Interesting to note that Jesse is an educated, successful man of African American descent, who is married to a black woman and praises black women. He is similar in this regard to Obama. What do they both have in common? Both were raised by white women.
