I don’t know much about “Empire” star Jussie Smollett but I know he’s an actor, human and happens to be gay. He was attacked in Chicago by men who sought to harm him in a very violent way. Those who attacked him are a part of a great problem of prejudice, hate and homophobia. Smollett has worked to make life better for all in his community. The America of the 21st century should be about love, compassion, inclusion and peace. Those who sought to harm him are a part of a serious problem that must be fixed.
