Black Twitter DRAGS Wendy Williams For The Gawds Over Jesse Williams & HBCU Comments
And just when you thought she couldn’t get any worse, Wendy Williams takes the cake. During today’s episode of her show, Wendy decided to address the controversy over actor and activist Jesse Williams‘ recent speech at the BET Awards stating:
“His speech was very poignant, on one hand. On the other hand, you know, I would be really offended if there was a school that was known as a historically white college. We have historically black colleges. What if it was the National Organization for White People only? There’s the NAACP.”
“Look, everybody’s quiet. You’re leaving me out here to dry by myself? One wrong word — I’m choosing my words carefully, but what I am saying is racism s**ks and we can all do better in our household, educating ourselves and teaching our children to make it better.
National speeches like this will always rub people the wrong way just like white people will be offended because Spelman College is a historically Black college for women.”
Wendy Williams knew she was coonin after 19 seconds and the audience rightly left her hanging out to dry by herself. pic.twitter.com/cpTDVigOG0

She clearly forgot that HBCUs were founded to educate freed slaves after the American Civil War, because historically white institutions wouldn’t open their doors to blacks wanting to get an education, and much to my delight and many others, Black Twitter instantly began DRAGGING her for the GAWDS!
