Never trust these black homosexuals. This country is already against you being black but on top of that, you decide to be a homosexual as if that will make things easier. He's an idiot and another lost actor trying to stay afloat in Hollywood.

The privileged crying wolf? No shocker there... this is why when you cry wolf over and over true crimes that do happen, are looked at with suspicion or not believed.

Just a random thought. Why is Jussie being charged and arrested with faking a crime when there are so many women who make false rape allegations against men who didn’t do anything wrong and those women are never charged with faking a crime? Particularly girls who do this on college campuses and ruin potential students’ lives and future careers.

Police: But this check of $3,000 is written out to you guys for personal training. Brothers: No overlook that officer, Jussie really paid us to act out a hate crime on him. We are telling you the truth and nothing but the truth so help us god. Police: ok will you testify what you told us in front of a jury. Brothers: yes, officers. Police: Go book Jussie.

He deserves at least TWO years in prison for this. It doesn't matter: once someone like him smears you with a fake hate crime, there will ALWAYS be a few blacks who will believe them and call you a KKK-loving racist for the rest of your life. Thank the great racist Obama and his ilk like Kamala Harris for that.

I want to believe that he was attacked and that it was a hate crime. I need to see evidence that he staged his own attack. If he paid the Nigerian brothers to attack him with a check, I need to see the check. Hate crimes can happen in America because America is racist and homophobic especially Trump supportersl

I don't think he did this all by himself though. Yes I think he staged it but I am 100% sure it was not his idea. I could tell this story had a fake element to it because of the way my social media feed kept pushing it no matter how much I acted like I didn't care. So I knew it had to be fishy somehow from the get go. There are special interests at play here that got him to do this to promote their own goals but of course he has to take the fall. I don't believe he did it just to raise his salary on the TV show. But either way he should have refused to do something like that.

Elizabeth Ayodele he did it to show that he’s famous, because famous people get harassed more than non famous people. So he wanted to prove he was worth more than what they were paying him.

Why don’t the media show the real hate crimes in that black males kill White people 18x more, 200x more felonies on us, rape 35,000 White women a year, most hate groups and crime against White people, top crime charts, unapologetic racist and pretend they can’t be racist to get a free pass to be one as racism has NO color

The trend of putting yourself into a minority or victim role to maybe get advantages is wrong. A friend startet a company. On the homepage is noted, in big letters, that it’s a women lead business. Why does it play a role? Who cares? I think, this whole equality stuff isn’t about equality. No people want more. They want to be better. That’s why I can’t take Black Lifes Matter, LGBT,... not serious. They overdo it& harm the cause. I hope this hysteria doesn’t come to Germany.

You know what is a slap to the face? Chicago police killing innocents and having an off-site torture room! If you are going to imprison Jussie for a FELONY charge, then why don’t you jail the multiple white women who lie about black men raping them, or the white men who attack black people? This system isn’t broken, it’s just made for white people and attacks people with melanin in their skin. Whites are on code, they never imprison one of their own even if they kill and rape! A black man will ALWAYS get a harsher sentence for smaller crimes. This is modern day slavery! It never ended!
