    False reporting is not a felony. It's not even a misdemeanor, it's a minor offense and in most cases its not even punishable. Its unconstitutional to give jussie smollett such a sentence and charge.

    Plus rich black male multimillionaire athletes have gotten away with multiple rapes, battering women, and even murdering women but yet they have the nerve to claim to still be victims?! The same with almost all males of all races almost all the time! #justiceforfemales #timesup

    Terrance Howard also lied about his dad suffering a hate crime from a white guy also! The trayvon case was filled with multiple lies! George Zimmerman is not even white and yet they lied constantly and obviously about it! Plus al sharpton does not care about real crimes committed by black males toward females of any and every race. Yet he makes up ones and also claims every black male criminal abuser as victims! Plus Terrance is a woman batterer! Frank is also a lying narcissistic piece of 💩 who also was in on this and more likely planned all of this and Jessie was more than happy to go along with this! Blacklist Jess, frank, tarrance, and shun and ignore al Charleton!

    It doesn't matter what colour your skin is.. There are always going to be racist people out there but don't let that divide us from each other because I bet there are more non-racists than racists!


    Jussie Smollett at the end of the day got issues. Because of his selfishness, a ton of people in TV production on Empire (this upcoming season will be their last) and Star (got canceled over a month ago) lost their jobs, and have to go through the arduous task of finding work in a cold and door- slamming-in your-face business. Roseanne did the same shit last year to the production crew on her show.

      I know yo ass aint talking. Latino males commit more crimes (gang killings, robbery, stolen identity, credit card skimming and scamming, domestic violence against women, and etc.) in California than any other demographic. Do your research before you run your mouth you uncultured idiot.

    I am from a very racially
    diverse family. We have people whose skin is nearly purple, mocha, chocolate, cinnamon, Toffee, Toasted almond, bright, light and damn near white.
    I just don’t see Smollet as a victim. He seems too smarmy and assholic.
    I’m biracial as well. The thing about biracial people (in my family anyway) where we don’t choose to identify with one race or family line only to suddenly want to call foul and accuse someone of being prejudice.
    This guy didn’t seem to care about being a black man before.

    Just a random thought. Why is
    Jussie being charged and arrested with faking a crime when there are so many
    women who make false rape allegations against men who didn’t do anything wrong
    and those women are never charged with faking a crime? Particularly girls who
    do this on college campuses and ruin potential students’ lives and future

    Police: But this check of $3,000 is written out to you guys for personal training. Brothers: No overlook that officer, Jussie really paid us to act out a hate crime on him. We are telling you the truth and nothing but the truth so help us god. Police: ok will you testify what you told us in front of a jury. Brothers: yes, officers. Police: Go book Jussie.

    He deserves at least TWO years in prison for this. It doesn't matter: once someone like him smears you with a fake hate crime, there will ALWAYS be a few blacks who will believe them and call you a KKK-loving racist for the rest of your life. Thank the great racist Obama and his ilk like Kamala Harris for that.

    I want to believe that he was attacked and that it was a hate crime. I need to see evidence that he staged his own attack. If he paid the Nigerian brothers to attack him with a check, I need to see the check. Hate crimes can happen in America because America is racist and homophobic especially Trump supportersl
