So, I won’t lie, son. Real talk, I’m blown away right now, man. Like, what year are we in, fam? Seriously, what fucking year is it, bruh? Keeping it a buck, I don’t want to hear anything about progress, people. Shit, every time we think we’re moving ahead as a country, some fuckery occurs to bring us all back down. All I know is, the attack on Jussie Smollett was absolutely unconscionable. Frankly, I’m having a hard time putting my frustration into words, folks.
Ok, for those who missed it, Smollett was attacked in Chicago on Tuesday morning. According to the story, while walking out of a Subway restaurant at 2 AM, two dudes rolled up on him and said “aren’t you that faggot Empire nigger?” From there, the two ski-masked men hit Smollett in the face, injured his rib, put a rope around his neck and poured an “unknown chemical substance” on him. After all of that, the men allegedly yelled “this is MAGA country” before leaving the scene.
Now, I don’t even know where to start, son. I mean, do I start at the “faggot” part? Do I start at the “nigger” part? Or, should I start at the “MAGA country” part? Regardless, this whole scenario appears to be a clusterfuck of hate, man. Not to mention, a letter threatening Smollett was sent to Fox studios just a week prior to this incident. Meaning, he may have been targeted this entire time, fam.
Listen, I need Donald Trump supporters to hear me clear. As much as the MAGA brigade likes to say they’re not racist or xenophobic, there are a number of people who commit atrocities in their name. Look, if folks want all Muslims to atone for the actions of the radical few, why does MAGA nation think they’re exempt? It’s not a coincidence that losers preach hate in their name. It’s not a coincidence that David Duke identifies with the message. All in all, I don’t want to hear any of that “I don’t agree with everything Trump says” shit. The way I see it, it’s a package deal, bruh. People can’t piecemeal what they want and ignore all of the other tomfoolery that comes with it, son.
In the end, I’m wishing the best for Jussie Smollett. Ultimately, I hope they catch the motherfuckers who did this bullshit to him, man. By and by, it’s frightening that crimes like this are still occurring in 2019. At the end of the day, it’s dangerous for so many different groups of people, fam. *Sigh* This is America. Don’t catch you slipping up. LC out.
