When an African American Cries Wolf – JLD

When an African American Cries Wolf – JLD

Some of us are quick to believe any allegation of racial discrimination, while others call such outcries “playing the race card” or “being a victim”. And then you have the allegation made by Jussie Smollett, claiming he was the victim of a racially motivated, as well as homophobic, hate crime. Add in the detail that Smollett previously received a letter from his producers, stating his television series (Empire) was not getting enough attention, and it is no wonder Smollett wrote a $3500 check, on top of texting, the alleged perpetrators, who just so happen to also be black. In The Church and The Community, Page 100, there is a factual account of a black man being discriminated against, by someone in his own community. In the case of Jussie Smollett however, based on facts presented thus far, and him making false statements to police in 2007, it might be time for Smollett’s allies, to admonish him for crying wolf against his own people.
