When I first started hearing the news about Jussie Smollett being attacked in Chicago a few weeks back, I did have the odd thought that the attack sounded “too perfect” to my ears. When I considered that, I had absolutely no idea that this thought was perfect – and that the attack was indeed a work of fiction.
I’m old enough to hear about the Tawana Brawley allegations back in the late 1980s, and I know that every once in a while history tends to repeat itself – whether it means to or otherwise.
The events sadden me that there are people out there, regardless of color or creed, who want to get at our current President at all costs. I’m also of the opinion that it could also be plausible that Smollett didn’t think of this idea all by himself – the only question is if it is something that can be proven in a court of law.
Other than that, I really don’t think there is much left to say – and that giving the man any more space would be a waste of such space.
