No stranger to voicing his opinion, Jesse Williams has found yet another way to find the words to express frustration over the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. 

The activist took to both Twitter and Tumblr on Wednesday and Thursday to address the injustices that have yet again taken two Black men from the world prematurely.

Williams who is a former teacher and a star on the ABC hit series, Grey’s Anatomy, has steadily been a figure in the #BlackLivesMatter movement speaking out on the countless victims who have been killed at the hands of police officers all around the country. 

During the 2016 BET Awards, Williams gave a moving speech following accepting the Humanitarian Award for his advocacy and committment to social change. The inspiring 5-minute declaration was yet another instance of his inspiring brillance as a voice in our community on issues that touch us dearly. 

Since Williams last tweeted, another man, 32-year-old Philando Castile was shot and killed in Minneappolis in front of his girlfriend and her daughter.
