One Remark

  1. Regarding the Jussie Mollett case, some wind is clearing the smoke, but not for the best. If the arrested men are responsible (two Nigerian who worked as Empire’s TV show extras) further questions arise regarding not only why Mollett blamed white guys for the attack (what constitutes blatant racism) but Trump supporters (what may be political manipulation and prejudice as another lie, although may be the presumed attackers recently acquired USA citizenship and were politically engaged who knows…). If he knew them not only from the show but going to the gym together (wow), this turns really, really ugly but for reasons quite different from what he claimed while posing as victim of racism and a hero fighter for LGBT’s. Another problem “we” (LGBT’s) have is that we still don’t understand that we are as diverse and complex as the rest of the society we BELONG to, and therefore sometimes we jump onto the defense of some person whose motives we don’t know only because we were said we have to protect ourselves against prejudice. Yes we do, but when it is real and not by being manipulated, lied upon, used for political gains or (for instance) disregarding facts or mainstream science (as there are also some delusional claims running amok that also make “us” look not quite good).
