I'd like to know more facts about this story before making any kinds of conclusions about why the charges were dropped, etc.

 

Anyone making any conclusions or definitive statements on Jussie Smollett and this whole circus now is asking to be wrong about something they'll regret saying later.

 

We've been immediately drawing conclusions for so long I don't think we have remembered how to stop.

Wait, does anyone here still think this guy was truthful?

 

I mean, I don't think so, this reeks of Hollywood privilege, but hey, at least it's inclusive Hollywood privilege! :p

‘Lawyering while black’

 

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/03/28/lawyering-while-black-maryland-deputy-accused-attorney-being-suspect-complaint-says/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.c817601f380b

 

Rashad James could think of nothing that would explain why a Harford County, Md., deputy suspected he was impersonating an attorney, at least other than his skin color.

The encounter was “surreal,” James, an African American attorney with Maryland Legal Aid, told a roomful of reporters Tuesday. On the morning of March 6, he said at the news conference, he strolled into a Harford County district courtroom to do his job, only for a deputy to detain him to ask for proof that he was a lawyer, suggesting that, in fact, he was a criminal suspect only pretending to be one.

The footage showed that Mr. McCoy appeared to be asleep for at least several minutes, and that he was shot about 10 seconds after he began to move. It was unclear whether he was reaching for a gun.

This is 10 minutes from my house.

 

Houston is one of the least white major metros in America (only like 25% non-Hispanic white), but this particular suburb Friendswood is still 90% non-Hispanic white in 2019. That isn’t by accident.

Friendswood sounds like the name of a town in the next Jordan Peele horror movie.

Fuck, the second-hand embarrassment was so severe watching this walking cliche of a man. Not-Native-American person dropping "who doesn't belong here" just makes me want to hit pause and simply explain how absurd this statement is.

It’s an old Quaker (the “Friends” church people) town, which is the perfect setting for a Peele horror flick.

Upon actually producing his stupid campus ID, rent-a-cop decides to double down, what else of course, and continue to escalate this embarrassment of a situation.

He should just claim he's trans and go transfer over Barnard.

Legitimately surprised the guy wasn't killed. I love this cop threatening to arrest the dude for obstruction.
