    Soooo he was innocent all along? Or the cops didn't have sufficient evidence? Or the fix is in?

    Meh. The indifference is strong with this one.

    He probably copped some sort of plea to a lesser charge that won't involve jail time. It still hope at the very least he gets fired from his show.

    This Jussie Smollett thing is quite weird.

    I have no words. Need to hear more.

    I'm no fan of Ann, but her explanation would explain a lot. Jussie clearly has powerful friends.

    “Oh, I see,” Coulter said on Twitter. “Kim Foxx, the Chicago prosecutor who dropped Jussie Smollett charges was put there by George Soros.” Soros is Smollett’s attorney. Coulter linked a 2016 article written by The Chicagoist, which claimed some of Foxx’s campaign donations for her current position came from Soros.

    I am hearing rumblings of "black privilege" in the wake of this Jussie nonsense.

    I had an Elder (of the Universe) moment.



    I think the Jussie thing is more of a class/political connections thing.

    I'm not sure where the FBI is at regarding the hate mail Jussie claimed he received prior to the "attack".

    The gory details...

    - The Chicago Police Department has already(more than a week back) called for a Federal investigation of Kim Foxx and why she had to recuse herself.
    - The Prosecutor who dropped the charges says he has no doubt about the State's evidence or case.
    - He explained it as an alternative to going forward with a trial in a city that could use the resources elsewhere.
    - The idea being that community service thus far and sacrificing the ten grand he put up for bail will be an alternative to an actual sentence.

    Edit:

    One other thing that's there in the background...

    The entire thing is sealed. Pretty sure that means they can just shrug off a FOIA request from a reporter for the evidence that the Chicago Police had.

    Remember that big hissy fit about Captain Marvel. Well Jordan Peele says he will probably never hire a white male as lead. Jordan Peele is literally doing what Brie Larson has said in her speech. He held a screening for only black film reviewers and influencers. He saying know that he probably won't do white guys a lead where is the outrage? It is the same points as Brie Larson about if your film is targeting audience "getting people who look like audience to review it would be helpful. Why aren't those Brie Haters mad now?

    Hip-hop media is all kind of warped.

    We are hearing about Cardi B ranting about drugging men and robbing them while she was still a stripper. But Hip-hop media goes out of their way to defend her, like seriously? All that about Cardi B getting nothing handed to her is bull, most of us had nothing handed to us and we had to work hard to be anything close to stable. The hip-hop community has a pattern of enabling criminal behavior and looking for all sort of ridiculous reasons to justify said behavior.

    In what world is it ok for a person to drug another person? People are comparing her to Bill Cosby and yes we know that rape is a completely different thing but still there’s a lot of things wrong with drugging an individual.

    But it is pretty funny because they say to you all the time create your own "character", Jordan Peele create his own characters and look it is going to become an issue

    It is indeed fucked up. On the other hand, she wouldn't be the first rapper with a horrible past that people went to bat for. Hell, there are rappers and singers who have recently done worse and are still being defended.

    That is because CM is going to make a billion in tickets + merch and everyting else involved and Us is going to make 200 million period.

    Peele is "big" for a director. But he isn't Marvel Studios big. So when he says stuff like that, he is hitting 1/6 of the people Brie gets. The hissy fit will never be as big. Plus, id imagine the population of Peele movie lovers contains less man babies

    You could probably get a degree in hip hop culture and not even scratch the service. Warped is a good word for it.

    One guy's take...

    It feels like a good bit of the "Captain Marvel" drama was folks who thought they could successfully run the "Ghostbusters" play again.

    Which won't work when you don't have the director and actor at the other end of the ping pong table the way they were when it came to Ghostbusters.

    Us?

    What are to odds that anyone involved would have wound up in the middle of that sort of nonsense?

    Feels like the "Tune Up" crowd might be just smart enough to grasp that.
