California State U. Prof Says Smollett Case Was “Decided in a White Supremacist Charade”
“we find ourselves, once again, being forced to put our lives and our value in the hands of judges and juries operating in a system that is designed to oppress us”
This is a complete denial of reality. The case was decided in a court of law, in blue Chicago for that matter. It was a hoax. Smollett lied.

California State U. prof: Jussie Smollett verdict a ‘white supremacist charade’
A professor in Cal State Los Angeles’ Pan-African Studies Department declared continued support for actor Jussie Smollett after he was found guilty of all but one charge this week.
Smollett, formerly of the show “Empire,” was convicted of fabricating a hate crime almost three years ago where he claimed he was assaulted in the wee hours of the morning by “MAGA”-yelling white guys.
Black Lives Matter LA founder Melina Abdullah, a “womanist scholar-activist” and former chair of her department, said on Tuesday “[W]e can never believe police, especially the Chicago Police Department (CPD) over Jussie Smollett, a Black man who has been courageously present, visible, and vocal in the struggle for Black freedom.”
Abdullah added policing in general is “an irredeemable institution,” and that the CPD is “notorious for its long and deep history of corruption, racism, and brutality.”
As abolitionists, we approach situations of injustice with love and align ourselves with our community. Because we got us. So let’s be clear: we love everybody in our community. It’s not about a trial or a verdict decided in a white supremacist charade, it’s about how we treat our community when corrupt systems are working to devalue their lives. In an abolitionist society, this trial would not be taking place, and our communities would not have to fight and suffer to prove our worth. Instead, we find ourselves, once again, being forced to put our lives and our value in the hands of judges and juries operating in a system that is designed to oppress us, while continuing to face a corrupt and violent police department, which has proven time and again to have no respect for our lives.

A “womanist activist scholar” teaching a styrofoam major voices her opinion.
“Listen to that,” said the man in a red cloak, “one animal says another animal told it to do something.”
— Cordwainer Smith, “Norstrilia.”
Please by all means keep trumpeting this lunacy. It’s a great big red flag to the rest of the country.
Only for a percentage of those that are listening … for the vast amount of others … it doesn’t mean jack …
Maybe she’ll go on CNN and convince their 5 viewers how crazy she is and how pathetic Jussie is….the law of unintended consequences.
Whatever this so called “womanist activist scholar” said is about as valuable as used toilet paper.
Liberals are telling people to get off the fence, not realizing that they are literally pushing them over to the other side. Sure worked out for them in VA recently.
As long as I’m continually called responsible and harangued for shit that I didn’t do … even to the point that my mere existence is a threat … I’ll fight those bastards till my last breath.
“[W]e can never believe police, … over Jussie Smollett, a Black man …”
Black privilege much? The level of racism is epic! 🙁
” we approach situations of injustice with love and align ourselves with our community.”
And do you also align yourself with facts and reason?
Who do you consider “our community”; what are your criteria for inclusion/exclusion? Assuming your your community is anything less than perfect, what do you do when, objectively, your community is wrong? Are you even sure everyone defined as “our community” agrees with you?
If faced with a choice between aligning yourself with “our community” when reason, logic and evidence leads to a different conclusion, which do you choose?
If well-evidenced facts disagree with your politics, to which do you grant priority?
Slave of Allah, the system is designed to prevent and punish crime, not oppress you. If you find this oppressive, please relocate to a place where you will not be oppressed.
A professor in Cal State Los Angeles’ Pan-African Studies Department declared the verdict a ‘white supremacist charade’ because of course she did.
Idiot “professor” doesn’t realize that the “race card” is tattered and threadbare.
It’s what she knows. It’s what she’s a professional “expert” in. And she’s got a tenured spot now with the expectation she’ll use it to push that card.
She never says it wasn’t a hoax. She never says it wasn’t designed to create anti-white, anti-Trump feelings. She says that there wouldn’t have been a trial. And that she doesn’t trust the police.
She sounds like Josef Goebbels. On a normal day.
In the end he got what he wanted (no pun intended). Fame and sympathy. He won’t face very much punishment and he has become a poster boy to the cause. Eventually he will be rehabilitated in eyes of Hollywood and in the interval can support himself through the book deal and generous speaking fees on college campuses. Time to move on.
Don’t leave out his eventual run for public office on a democrat ticket somewhere.
But much diminished vs. his prior trajectory. I had the feeling he was being groomed as the next Obama. Blackish, gay, from Chicago, lefty … he ticked all the boxes for a very successful formula. He needed this persecution event to catapult him into the national political picture.
Fortunately he was caught.
She’s right, if you ignore the video evidence of the trial run; and the brothers’ text messages to him and from him; and the ridiculous story of MAGA voters out on a Chicago street during the coldest night of the year, with bottles of bleach and a noose, looking for someone to mug–absolute case of white supremacist charade /sarc
Even then she’s not right.
“As abolitionists, we approach situations of injustice with love and align ourselves with our community.” This sort of approach is fine as long as they set up their own state. They are free to go do that, and we’ll be free of them too. Good fences make good neighbors.
