Black Lives Matter is a sham organization, and they further demonstrated this with their ridiculous statement supporting Jussie Smollett.
They called the trial a “white supremacist charade” and stated they could never believe police. They don't seem to care if Smollett perjured himself. Their statement reveals that the only thing that matters to BLM is skin color.
BLM did not have to provide any opinion or feedback regarding Smollett. But since they did, they should have at least condemned him for causing irreparable harm to those who suffer legitimate hate crimes. Instead, this is what they wrote:
It’s not about a trial or a verdict decided in a white supremacist charade, it’s about how we treat our community when corrupt systems are working to devalue their lives. In an abolitionist society, this trial would not be taking place, and our communities would not have to fight and suffer to prove our worth. Instead, we find ourselves once again being forced to put our lives and our value in the hands of judges and juries operating in a system that is designed to oppress us, while continuing to face a corrupt and violent police department who has proven time and again to have no respect for our lives.
The only system that is corrupt in this instance is Jussie Smollett’s honor system. If the group cannot find fault with those who do wrong, regardless of skin color, then the group is not worth taking seriously ever again.
