Dispensing proper reasoning, “Grey’s Anatomy” star Jesse Williams shot down the stereotype of the angry black man/woman in today’s society.

The actor made his views known about the stereotype during a recent interview with The Guardian, according to The Huffington Post, which noted that Williams also touched on the misguided assumption that a black person’s anger is a product of being black.

“There is zero evidence, zero evidence that black people are more inclined to be angry in vacuum than anybody else,” Williams said.

“They are upset. Is being upset bad? Is anger just a negative quality? It doesn’t begin with rage, right. It’s a community that’s f*cking hurting and is really disappointed in itself, in the people that it trusted, in the government it paid taxes to… That is where the frustration comes from.”

Williams’ remarks about the “angry black man/woman” stereotype aren’t the first time he has spoken out on racial issues.

In an August 2014 interview with CNN, the 34-year-old entertainer questioned the media’s coverage of the Michael Brown case as he pointed out its focus on video footage showing Brown involved in strong-arm robbery at a convenience store.

“You’ll find that the people doing the oppressing always want to start the narrative at a convenient part, or always want to start the story in the middle,” Williams stated. “This started with a kid getting shot and killed and left in the street for four hours.”

  1. You and the rest of the news media should be ashamed. Your task is, allegedly, to accurately as possible report news. Yet you have utterly failed with Mike Brown.

    Why? Because you failed to examine the news you were reporting.

    Question: what shoes was Mike Brown wearing when he was murdered? Answer: Nikes.

    Question: what shoes was the man wearing who is purported to be Mike Brown wearing in the convenience store surveillance video? Answer: SLIPPERS, or, if you want, some form of sandals.

    Mike Brown was also wearing socks (a big to-do was made about this) with a distinct five-leaf logo – said to be marijuana leaves – on them. The man said to be Mike Brown in the store video WAS NOT wearing those socks.

    Additionally, why has no one ever asked the store owner when that incident took place??? Why has no one ever asked the police why there is no time stamp on the video, which would tell us the exact time and date of the incident?!

    Since, after all this time, you utterly failed to examine the video evidence at hand in the Mike Brown murder, by now can only be thought that this site is little more than a propaganda and gossip outlet that speaks to Americans other than Black people.
