The noose has deep rooted history in America. The noose is a symbol of hate and a symbol of the murders of thousands of innocent Black people in this country. How dare Jussie Smollett use this disgusting symbol to get more money & attention. Chicago Police authorities say he was dissatisfied with his "Empire" salary and orchestrated a plot to fake a homophobic and racial attack, where he claimed a rope was wrapped around his neck. The two attackers have been identified as a couple of brothers who were former "Empire" extras. Jussie knew them well. They are now working with police and claim Jussie paid them $3,500 to fake the attack. He is now in Chicago Police custody facing 3 years for filing a false police report. I am truly disgusted that I am taking about a Black man allegedly using a noose to gain clout...in the middle of Black History Month. Jussie Smollett is innocent until proven guilty, that's how the law works. But it looks like the cards are truly stacked against him.
