If you think that Black Lives Matter isn’t an ideology so far, then you certainly need to pay close attention to the Jussie Smollet debacle. Smollet is the Empire actor who has been convicted of staging a racist, homophobic attack and lying to police about it. The interesting thing about this whole scenario is that numerous celebrities were supporting Smollet when he deliberately staged the entire incident.
Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Kerry Washington, Danielle Brooks, Anthony Anderson, Lena Waithe, Tyler Perry, Rumer Willis, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Cynthia Nixon, Cher, Alyssa Milano, all sent messages to Smollet saying that they were supporting him. Willis declared: “I just think it’s a really devastating situation for everybody involved. I don’t really know what to say about all of it. I just think it’s really devastating.” Viola Davis tweeted:
“OMG!! THIS is why the LGBTQ community continue to fight to be seen and PROTECTED against hate! We ALL have to take this racist and homophobic act of violence very personally! My arms are around you @jussiesmollett. You are loved!”
Mindy Kaling said:
“I am disgusted and horrified to hear of the homophobic and racial attack on Jussie Smollett last night. Unfortunately, these hateful attacks happen way too often. We must call out and hold those accountable. Sending love to you, Jussie.”
Katy Perry opined:
“Standing with and sending love to @JussieSmollett today… this is a racist hate crime and is disgusting and shameful to our country 😔#WeLoveJussie.”
Listen to Ellen Page on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert:
director Ava Duvernay said last year:
“Despite the inconsistencies, I can’t blindly believe Chicago PD. The department that covered up shooting Laquan McDonald over a dozen times? That operated an off-site torture facility? That one? I’ll wait. Whatever the outcome, this won’t stop me from believing others. It can’t.”
As Dave Chappelle rightly put it, every serious black person knows that Smollet was “clearly lying,” but the celebrities wanted the story to be so true that they are not even willing to issue an apology for defending Smollet. In fact, Melina Abdullah, a former California State University professor and police abolitionist who co-founded BLM Los Angeles, said Smollett “has been courageously present, visible, and vocal in the struggle for Black freedom.”
Abdullah called Smollet trial “a white supremacist charade.” Since “Policing at-large is an irredeemable institution,” one “can never believe the police” whatsoever. Therefore, the police must be abolished: “Black Lives Matter will continue to work towards the abolition of police and every unjust system.”
Now you know that Black Lives Matter has nothing to do with truth. It is a wicked ideology that seeks to manipulate the naïve and those who don’t really know what is really going on.

#1-First of all, I’ve never heard of the phrase “serious” black person. What exactly IS the definition of a “serious black person?”
From a black man who operates in the real world, let me tell you that NO Brother or Sister was buying this obviously fake made-up story from “Juicy ‘Smo-Lay’ (phonetic spelling)” No one in The New Black Media was giving this story any credence. The only black people who were supporting “Smo-Lay” were the usual Blue-party Nocturnal Mammals trying to get some cred with their white LGBTQ-organization “allies.”
Secondly, any attempt to paint all Black people with the “BLM” tag is just pure intellectual laziness. I guarantee it would be easier to find an actual member of the Nation of Islam than finding a Black person who is actually a member of BLM.
Finally, to all of the Red-party Nocturnal Mammals and the Blue-party Nocturnal Mammals, The New Black Media constantly reminds us that there is NO retirement package that comes with the promotion of white supremacy. B1…
There are a thousand people per year killed by police guns. Smollett is not one of them.
I would agree with Duvernay’s quote. This case in general was not that big of a deal in relationship to all the others going on at the time. There was no need to trust anyone, just wait and see, if interested at all. It wasn’t outrageous enough.
See, if he had gone to the best gay liar dude training facility in the world (the vatican) he would have learned , that to sell an outrageous lie, you need to believe it yourself first, then you need an army. And all the publishers. Violence emanates from the ground in Chicago, and it would not matter who or how many live there. It is the place of the Bear. Not a good place to settle.
I never knew Smollet a gay dude too until now (didnt really care either he is just a lying hollywood jerk).
Now it all makes sense doesnt it.
You got some issues I got the tissues.
BLM not really related to this BS caught red handed story, or him being black.
There is no holy alliance with BLM movemenet and gay rights. Most police are gay if they know it or not anyways. haha
Is this the same Chapelle stand up where he says its OK to shoot a nigga, but to just call someone a faggot you can go to jail for life.
This is why I turned off the TV over a decade ago and don’t do social media. Smollet, who’s he?
Chappelle SO FUNNY
