Jesse Williams: From ‘Anatomy’ To Antisemitism

Jesse Williams is an American actor who once had a part on Grey’s Anatomy.

It seems he has gone on to being an anatomical part.

Williams has been firmly in the anti-Israel camp for a while now, and he denies he is antisemitic:

Well, Jesse, I agree empathy for people in Gaza (at least the innocent ones who are not terrorists nor terrorist enablers) alone does not make anyone antisemitic.

But things like disseminating antisemitic tropes of Jewish power does:

as does disseminating unsubstantiated “blood” libels:

Back in 2016, the Jewish Norman Lear defended Williams following the latter’s remarks on racial injustice during his 2016 “BET Awards” acceptance speech, which many people took as being a “racist hate speech against law enforcement and white people.”

“I’ve seen and attended a ton of awards shows in my time, and no one has ever put his soul and his ass on the line so fully and so truthfully as Jesse Williams did at the BET Awards last week. Wither thou goest, Mr. Williams, I will follow.”

I am not sure that Lear would follow Williams and the rank antisemitism he is now displaying, given the former was very conscious of antisemitism:

“At 9 I learned that people disliked me because of my Jewishness…It was a profound discovery and influenced everything I ever felt about the human species, the human condition. My sympathies, my empathy went out to people who are automatically disliked just because of who they are.”

Jesse Williams: just another loudmouth actor who portrays himself as anti-racism while showing his own bigotry.
