To be fair, if they're still all worked up over historical slavery, I could see being mad at the people who captured and enslaved their ancestors in the first place.
And... what does any of that have to do with anything in this thread?
I once met an elderly woman whose grandmother was a slave. It was an eye opening experience for myself. It's not as far away as people like to think and it could be argued the woman I met directly suffered by having a grandmother who was a slave.
And just think, all his coworkers will forever have to wonder if he lost them a steady paycheck. And it's not like they're great, well-known actors, and the show will forever have that association with him now so it's not going to do fantastic things for their resumes. That seed of doubt will grow into one of resentment, and if we're lucky the next time Jussie gets dragged into the street and doused in bleach it will be by...
Not acquitted. Declined to be prosecuted. You actually have to set foot in court to get an acquittal, in his case the prosecutor just shrugged and noped out.
Jussie Smollett's Cook County criminal documents ordered unsealed
By Ryan Gaydos | Fox News
An Illinois judge on Thursday ordered "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett's criminal case file unsealed, setting up the release of a wealth of information surrounding the controversial -- and often confusing -- case.
Cook County judge Steven G. Watkins' decision came months after a dizzying set of events: First, Smollett alleged he'd been the victim of a hate crime; after an extensive investigation, Chicago cops arrested Smollett and accused him of faking the supposed attack; and then, Cook County prosecutors suddenly dropped the charges against Smollett and his case was sealed.
But not anymore -- at least, soon.
When the state attorney asked whether the office could have more time to redact personal information from the files, Watkins advised prosecutors to "act as if the documents were never sealed in the first place."
In January, Smollett made national headlines when he filed a police report alleging two masked men attacked him, put a rope around his neck and poured bleach on him as he was walking home from a fast food eatery. Smollett, who is black and openly gay, said the masked men beat him, made racist and homophobic comments and yelled, "This is MAGA country" -- a reference to President Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan -- before fleeing the scene.
But as cops investigated the case further, they began taking a closer look at Smollett.
Surveillance video reportedly revealed brothers Abel and Ola Osundairo, who lived in Smollett's apartment building, purchasing rope similar to the kind used during the alleged attack. Eventually, the brothers reportedly told cops Smollett paid them to help him fake the attack.
Smollett was arrested for allegedly filing a false police report and faced 16 counts of disorderly conduct stemming from the incident. But during a short and stunning hearing, the office of Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx dropped the charges against Smollett, though his bail was forfeited.
Smollett has maintained his innocence and insisted the hate attack was real. But the city of Chicago is suing the actor in an effort to recoup resources spent investigating the alleged hoax.
Meanwhile, the brothers implicated in the incident are suing Smollett's attorneys for defamation of character.

Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard will be fine. They were the ones who had/have actual careers other than the show, and Howard's been working steadily even while having a habit of giving off-putting interviews.And just think, all his coworkers will forever have to wonder if he lost them a steady paycheck.

It failed to mention the terroristic threat from the child's drawing and the crushed aspirin sent through the mail. That's the big charge to contend with.Man, Fox News articles have been pretty good recently. You read woke media and it's 40 pages long with repeating, inane shit.
