bullshit narrative that LGBTQ+ and racial minorities are NOT facing discrimination and ‘hate crimes’
If [insert minority marginalized group] are facing discrimination and hate crimes, then why can't the media find a real one to blare to the world. Usually when someone is caught faking a crime, they claim it was really an attempt to call attention to the real thing. Although, instead of a hoax, wouldn't it be nobler to seek out a real victim of a real crime - which I'm assured is an every day threat - and publicize that?
Oh, right, the attention whore thing....

It’s actually much more simple than that. If I were a disenfranchised minority who dies at the hands of authority figures, such as police officers, I would NOT use such avenues for justice. The point is, a huge shit load of nonsense ostensibly happens to minorities and they deal with it because of systemic, institutionalized discrimination. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy.

It was all so obvious and ill planned, it's like he came up with the whole scheme while he was drunk.
I wonder if the brothers played him? They went along for money, and said "a check will be fine!" because they knew it would cover their ass if caught.
It's been such a spectacular career suicide I've pitied Smollett, but then remember how much trouble and ill will he's caused.
What an idiot. Writing a damn check. Un-fucking-believable.

I think the photo of him in the black turtleneck sweatshirt/jacket thingy is his mug shot. I could be wrong, but that's what my local morning news said. ;)
Too bad. It would’ve been way more hilarious to see him wear the striped shirt like the people in the other article. I bet Chicago PD would’ve had fun watching him squirm when he realized he’d have to wear something that no telling how many of the unwashed masses had worn or when it had last been washed. :hilarious:

God, what a fucking douchebag. But let’s not spin this to fit some sort of bullshit narrative that LGBTQ+ and racial minorities are NOT facing discrimination and ‘hate crimes’ (I hate that term for...reasons). This guy is just an attention whore.
Exactly, which is why this crime is so reprehensible. This damages both minorities in their struggle, gay and black. I find this morally equivalent to a false charge of rape.

Thanks,:) but it was the Chicago PD

“Jussie Smollett took advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career,” Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said at a press conference. “I’m left hanging my head and asking why. Why would anyone, especially an African-American man, use the symbolism of a noose?”
“Accusations within this phony attack received national attention for weeks,” Johnson continued. “Celebrities, news commentators and even presidential candidates weighed in on something that was choreographed by an actor.”
Johnson began the press conference by lamenting the attention Smollett’s case has received.
“As I look out into the crowd, I just wish that the families of gun violence in this city got this much attention,” he said.

Ha ha, I'm sure NYPD would've done an even better job than Chicago! Last night it dawned on me what I'd done, but I wasn't about to attempt to edit from my phone. :wacky:

CHICAGO (AP) — Actor Jussie Smollett’s character on “Empire” will be removed from the final two episodes of this season in the wake of his arrest on charges that he staged a racist, anti-gay attack on himself last month in downtown Chicago, producers of the Fox TV show announced Friday.

The announcement came a day after Smollett turned himself in to police, appeared in court on a felony charge of disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report, and left jail after posting bond.

The series is on a midseason break and returns March 13 with nine episodes. The last two episodes of the fifth season were still being made when Smollett was charged.

The way to protest or change policy policy or bad behavior or whatever is not to perpetrate a hoax that ties up precious law enforcement resources. The way to change things for the better in any scenario is to maintain one's own integrity.

What about white people? What about Trump supporters? They were the ones he actually targeted with these evil lies. Not for the first time, I might add.

I know that this is a trope by now but, what if the races were reversed?

One-year-old was shot and critically hurt on Thursday February 7, 2019

No arrests have been made, Chicago Police officer Jennifer Bryk told ABC News Monday.

The little boy — identified as Dejon Irving, according to The Chicago Tribune — was hospitalized in critical condition, according to police.

“He’s on life support and it doesn’t look good,” Dejon’s grandfather, Melvin Freeman, told reporters, according to The Tribune.

I can't at this time put into words how disgusting Smollett is as a human being.

He chose to take valuable time and resources away from actual victims so that he could get a little attention.

Jussie- Tupac would smack the bitch out of you for even comparing yourself to him.

In the wake of the arrest of actor Jussie Smollett, who was charged with staging his own racist and homophobic attack, here are just some of the other crimes that have been given prominent play by the media since the 2016 election — often accompanied by politicians decrying, “This is America today” — that turned out to be frauds:

“Break the mold”, eh? So you’re implicitly agreeing with me —you agree that there is a mold, and that a mold can be broken. Just because people can break social barriers doesn’t mean said barriers are erased.

Example: America had a black president. Mold broken! I guess racism isn’t an issue anymore.

I agree systematic abuse exists ... and fight the power. And Obama wasted his ... but this isn't about that. This is about inciting hate, violence, and racial division. This was a HOAX ... it was fake. And it didn't occur by the hands of someone who was marginalised, but by someone who was accomplished and there was no Self -fulfilling Prophecy. Watch natural Born Killers ... look at Young Micky trying to sit still in a chair while his father screams at him to sit still ... he can't do it ... he squirms to get the beating over with ... That is a self- fulfilling prophecy. What this guy did is simply a crime.

This was a seriously, seriously shitty thing that he did, but at this point I'm kinda worried for the guy. I can't imagine what he's going through right now, due to his own retarded actions of course. I just hope he is man enough to face it and accept responsibly for his crimes rather than off himself..

many reality show bimbos pull fake bs & thought he'd top them, what is sad & insane there are a lot of real crimes being committed against ppl in various marginalized groups that have legitimate stories that aren't even making it into the news except for at best locally and unnoticed whose voices do need to be heard & now they will be further silenced or trivialized

How soon before Smollett checks into some facility to recover from stress or something?
eta: The last refuge of a disgraced celebrity or politician is to check in somewhere for some kind of treatment.
I can't find the meme I saw the other day but it had a picture of John Stamos with his mullet from Full House. Below the pic it said... All this time I thought they were talking about Jesse's Mullet.
