I am in shock and despair about this!!! If I hear one more person say that this administration is not Encouraging the boldness Of the racist, sexist, homophobic attitudes in this country I am going to scream! People walking around ignorantly wearing a MAGA hat . And saying that it has nothing to do with anything but making the country great again. This is the kind of crap that happens. Wake up people stop hiding behind this bullshit let’s be real and call it and tell it like it is!! Down with MAGA!! Code word for what???

I’ve known Jussie since he was 10 years old, and a man of @JussieSmollett’s talent, intellect and kindness should be an undisputed blessing to our community. My heart is hurting knowing that he’s suffering…and for what? Just for being? The fact his presence on this earth would be perceived as a threat to anyone only shows the magnitude of their fear and confusion. I pray that our country learns to heal, that we may see each other for WHO we are and nothing more. We gotta find the LOVE yawl! Praying endlessly for Jussie’s quick recovery at Northwestern Memorial. Anyone with information is asked to call Area Central Detectives at 312-747-8382
