In 2019, this is a subject we still shouldn’t be talking about but unfortunately we are. I quote, “An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”.
Today, I’ll be stating a few facts on the two separate crimes and the men involved in the crimes. Both represent the same political party and sexual orientation. The only difference is the color of their skin.
Jussie Smollett is a well known actor on the FOX hit series Empire who has recently come under fire for reporting and filing fake police reports for a hate crime. He is now currently detained and facing serious felony charges that could result in prison time, while also receiving major blowback and loss of support from the LBGTQ community, which is some what expected.
On the other hand, we have have Ed Buck, prominent Democratic donor, in which two male escorts were found dead in his home. Buck’s first case never made it to trial due to insufficient amount of evidence linking him to the murder and the second case made national news, but soon became swept under the rug.
Do we just completely ignore the crimes of Ed Buck who has received no further discipline simply because of skin color and affiliations? Jussie Smollett lied and filed fake police reports for a hate crime. Should that be punishable of felony charges?
In my morale compass, as well as the judicial system, murder/homicide should be taken more seriously and is punishable by life in prison and death.
