I began to ask myself: Could I ever be that selfless?

When he spoke of materialism was he talking about me?

"now, what we've been doing is looking at the data and we know that police somehow manage to de-escalate, disarm and not kill white people everyday.

So what's going to happen is we are going to have equal rights and justice in our own country or we will restructure their function and ours."On this very sensitive topic, Jesse did not shy away from controversy by posing a question to his audience.

Jesse modeled leadership for us all by saying what will be done versus what should or could be done.

I believe that every black man watching Jesse Williams' speech can take a thing, or three, away from his thought provoking words. One minute into his speech and he already hits us with a right hook of reality and an upper cut of truth.

As the crowd rose to their feet offering a standing ovation and all the twitter fingers around the globe began typing away, I couldn't help but to sit back on my couch and reflect on the words so eloquently spoken by this modern Civil Rights soldier.

As a black man watching Williams' speech, the emotion that I encountered first was that of shamefulness.

The disappointment in her face said enough for me to uproot the self-hate of my own blackness and to re-instill in my heart the love for the beautiful, talented and indestructible women who had raised me.

We must continue to remind ourselves that behind each and every strong black man stands an even stronger black women.

Am I doing enough to better my people or am I sacrificing the livelihood of those within my community in exchange for my own comfortability?

Jesse's speech was so impressive to me because his words were sharp enough to make me re-evaluate myself yet sweet enough to encourage me to be and do better.
