“Tomi Lahren, who is a conservative host at Glenn Beck’s The Blaze TV, expressed anger this week after actor Jesse Williams spoke at the BET Awards about ending racism.
On Sunday night, Williams delivered a passionate speech while accepting this year’s humanitarian award from BET.
“This is for the real organizers all over the country. The activists, the civil rights attorneys, the struggling parents, the families, the teachers, the students, that are realizing that a system built to divide and impoverish and destroy us cannot stand if we do,” Williams said. “There has been no war that we have not fought and died on the front lines of. There has been no job we haven’t done, there’s been no tax they haven’t levied against us, and we’ve paid all of them. But freedom is somehow always conditional here.”*
