Jesse Williams On Shooting of Ferguson Teenager Michael Brown

http://youtu.be/RDU8Bk9jc-s Jesse Williams talks to CNN about the shooting of 18 year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri on Sunday. Here are a few excerpts from his on the situation: "I think we have to talk about the narrative and make sure we’re starting at the beginning.

I’ve never seen a white body left in the heat for four hours in the sweltering heat. “I know plenty of white kids that steal stuff from convenience stores,” Williams continued in response to allegations that Brown stole cigars moments before his murder by law enforcement. “There is this idea that every time a black person does something they automatically become a thug worthy of their own death.” “The rest of us are not treated like human beings. Period,” the actor said. “That needs to be discussed. That is the story.”

Ga Ga: Jesse Williams Of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2

We're ga ga for Williams and the interview trailer where he talks about his nude modeling scene in The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants 2.
