Quote:
"Empire" star Jussie Smollett was brutally attacked by 2 men who beat him up, put his head in a noose and screamed, "This is MAGA country."

Sources directly connected to Jussie tell TMZ, the actor arrived in Chicago from New York late Monday, and at around 2 AM he was hungry and went to a Subway. We're told when he walked out, someone yelled, "Aren't you that f***ot 'Empire' n*****?"

The 2 men -- both white and wearing ski masks -- viciously attacked Jussie as he fought back, but they beat him badly and fractured a rib. They put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him and as they left they yelled, "This is MAGA country."

Jussie was taken to Northwestern Memorial where he was treated. He was discharged later Tuesday morning.

ThatGrapeJuice.Net first posted this letter which was sent to Fox Studios in Chicago with cut out letters spelling, "You will die black f**." Our sources say the letter was sent 8 days ago.

I don't know. The story is pretty insanely dramatic. I think this one needs a few days at least, or some confirming evidence, before I really believe it. Way messed up if true though.

Can't wait to defend the misunderstood individuals accused of this crime? I'm guessing it was silent prayer gone wrong in an attempt to de-escalate a situation between other bad non-white people. rolleyes

A wall would probably have kept this from happening. We'll be safer with a wall, you know.

Maybe it wouldn't have happened if Trump hadn't been elected.

he's on a Fox show so i'm sure you've heard of him


You have no idea how little television I watch. In the past month, other than a small amount of golf and NHL hockey (an hour combined perhaps) I've watched a grand total of about 15 minutes of a home improvement show that was on. That's it. Other than that I'll watch an occasional episode of Wicked Tuna or Gold Rush on the computer using On-Demand. If it were up to me I'd eliminate cable television completely in our house. We have one television in the house and 95% of the time the kids are using it for video games or to watch YouTube.

For my entertainment its pretty much all YouTube these days. I have about two dozen channels I subscribe to that are Surfing, fishing, Boat Repair, Sailing and photography related. Here is a list of my favorites:

I really haven't watched much of anything on television in the past three or four years.
