Jesse Williams from ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ argues against racist Halloween costumes on Twitter.
“Grey’s Anatomy” actor Jesse Williams went to Twitter on Tuesday to discuss what he believes are “racist” Halloween costumes.
“What about black pain is so fun to you? From where is that joy derived?” Williams tweeted to his nearly a million followers.
The Chicago actor then called out Halloween costumes he considered racist including those depicting Trayvon Martin, the African American teenager who was killed by George Zimmerman two years ago in Sanford, Florida.
The actor has frequently used social media and the Internet to voice his beliefs about race. Jesse Williams also participated in a “Ferguson October” protest in Missouri and voiced his concerns regarding no charges were filed against Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. A man sworn to protect & serve, shot an unarmed teen 6 times from a distance with witnesses & every gesture is being made not to charge him, Williams wrote.

The actor not only had a bone to pick with Ferguson, Missouri. The Grey’s Anatomy actor argued against the movie Noah was racist.
Instead of making all white Noah, when it would be physically impossible for all those people to be white, or Exodus when we know for a fact that the Egyptians were not white, Rhamses and Moses are all white, while the slaves and the servants and the thieves are black. That’s racism, Williams said.
