The friend who sent me this writes: "Until I rec'd this important brief from the NAACP, I had never heard of Jussie Smollett. Goes to show how out of the loop I am."

N.S.: Likewise.

Subject: NAACP Statement on Racist and Homophobic Attack on Jussie Smollett



"The recent racist and homophobic attack on acclaimed actor and activist Jussie Smollett is troubling. The rise in hate crimes is directly linked to President Donald J. Trump's racist and xenophobic rhetoric. It is dangerous for any society to allow a tone of divisiveness and hatred to dominate the political discourse. As this rhetoric continues to bleed into our everyday lives, dangerous behavior will continue to place many law-abiding individuals at risk. We pray for a full physical and mental recovery Jussie Smollett and many unnamed victims of this forum of hate based terrorism" Derrick Johnson, NAACP President and CEO.

The Chicago cops and many others are expressing a degree of doubt about the whole incident as reported by Jussie.

Probably the man got beaten in a gay spat with a lover and he wanted to cover for himself when he went to the hospital.
