Black people, PLEASE don’t fall for this racist trope that one black person’s (or ANY minority’s) actions, good or bad, reflect on the whole. It’s racist to its core. It’s rooted in “credit to your race” conditioning. No person must answer for another’s sin. #JussieSmollett
Also, don’t beat yourself for feeling empathy for someone who said they were a victim. That’s a natural, normal human response. #JussieSmollett
Also, #JussieSmollett didn’t “set race relations back.” We have racists in the White House and millions who support them. “Race relations” were already in shambles.
