A Comment About Jussie Smollet

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.

  1. When i found out about this yesterday I was pissed. The country has never been safe for Black LGBTQ+ people. I am angry and sad. I hope he pulls through. Shit like this is why Black LGBTQ+ people stay closeted. It is why the life expectancy of Black Trans women is 35 years old. I am so damn sick of this mess.
