Jussie Smollett’s defence has argued at trial that the man the actor says attacked him was a former lover who masturbated with him in a gay bathhouse.
Ok, how does that tie into the guys waiting at 2am with a pile of dumb stuff to fake the attack.
Or is this just a dirty attack on the witness in the hope that gay labelling scares him off.
As abolitionists, we approach situations of injustice with love and align ourselves with our community. Because we got us. So let’s be clear: we love everybody in our community. It’s not about a trial or a verdict decided in a white supremacist charade, it’s about how we treat our community when corrupt systems are working to devalue their lives. In an abolitionist society, this trial would not be taking place, and our communities would not have to fight and suffer to prove our worth.
Black Lives Matter will continue to work towards the abolition of police and every unjust system. We will continue to love and protect one another, and wrap our arms around those who do the work to usher in Black freedom and, by extension, freedom for everyone else.
I like blm stance on this:
Keep taking the knee guys.
In our commitment to abolition, we can never believe police, especially the Chicago Police Department (CPD) over Jussie Smollett, a Black man who has been courageously present, visible, and vocal in the struggle for Black freedom.
