I got bombarded with messages this morning about what some ignorant animals did to my brother @jussiesmollett in Chicago. I had to reach out and let him know however this message gets to him, I stand with you, I’m angry, and most of all I’m sick of the hatred that has been stirred up in these days and times we are living in. Jussie, you are an amazing, loving, super talented person, pls don’t let these bastards dim your light. I cannot believe that this mess happened, you always treated me and my people like family and I’ll never forget that. You got a real one in your corner. Sleep on it, pray on it, rise up and god willing…let’s keep making the world a better place. 💯✊🏾 #EmpireFox #StandUnited @empirefox @theoriginalbigdaddy @sanaahamri @tarajiphenson @theterrencehoward

It’s indisputable that one of Jussie’s purpose-gifts is the ability to unify through love. It’s who he is. It’s what he does. His blazon of light can never – and will never – be diminished, quelled or subdued. This despicable act only shamefully reveals how deeply the diseases of hatred, inequality, racism and discrimination continue to course through our country’s veins. It’s not enough to just share about the unconscionable, heinous and deplorable acts birthed by them – we must shoulder the responsibility and honor of loving one another like never before. We MUST. For without love; we gain nothing, we live for nothing, we become nothing. Praying deeply for our brother as he heals and recovers. Fervently awaiting the moment that these vile, despicable cowards and purveyors of hate and evil are brought to a smoldering justice. Love – and @jussiesmollett’s light, voice and purpose – will never be silenced. Hate will not win. We will rise.

The savage and brutal beating of my friend @jussiesmollett reminds me of how far we have left to go before we have achieved the most basic equality for our gay and lesbian friends, family and colleagues. A basic right to be free from physical harm and ridicule is not guaranteed in a society that promotes homophobia, transgender bias and violence against members of our own communities and families. All of us need to meditate and pray for real change and growth. None of us can be free so long as they can be violated and attacked so brutally out of ignorance and anger. We love you Jussie. Stand strong and we will stand with you! #standwithjussie #stophomofobia #stophate #endracism #lgbtq🌈 we love you so so much Jussie
