Taking to Twitter on Monday (April 26), the outspoken “Grey’s Anatomy” star expressed his views on the situation with a slew of scathing tweets directed at the media. In addition, Williams leveled comments for critics of the young black men participating in the rioting, looting and destruction of property in Baltimore.
While the bold comments and thought-provoking questions raised by Williams’ tweets are indeed raising eyebrows with a call to examine the real issues pertaining to Gray’s death, it’s the following post in particular that deserves a retweet:
“You want us to condemn black folks being violent against PROPERTY but you NEVER condemn police killing actual PEOPLE. #Explain #JustTry”
TheGrio.com notes that William’s tweet raises other valid questions:
“Why such the obsessive and obnoxious attention on property damage? Where is the outcry for accountability in the Baltimore Police Department?,” the site asked while referencing shared feelings about the situation that were echoed Tuesday (April 28) by activist DeRay Mckesson in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
