That's the right tack to take, as opposed to other veiled attempts to excuse Jussie's behavior by saying that people of color and LGBT folks won't be affected at all by his horseshit.

Pretty sure TP was behind that.  She wants black men to get away with crimes because their white counterparts do.  

 

I hope Fox does not bring back that sociopath!  I've wanted Jamal gone since S1 and I can't have that reversed!

I'd love to say, "Don't worry, they won't," but who the hell knows anymore about these things?  I wouldn't be surprised if Jussie comes out of this with a freaking spinoff!

I'm not sure if I can watch the next season if Jussie's smug face is on it. I had to mute the wedding scene.

 

As for the show - Andre needs a new heart after he's had the quickest chemo treatment for his cancer, possibly beating Amanda Woodward's miraculous recovery from Hodgkins. My guess is that the twist will be that Lucious kills half brother to save André.

Any historical value of the wedding scene was hard to enjoy considering that Smollett did something in real life that reflected poorly on black and LGBT people (not saying that all black and LGBT people would behave like he did, but ignorant people will use him to stereotype them). I think a lot of black people feel like he deserves a pass because they want to play the same game that white people have for years and that is to do wrong without facing consequences. To some it's about evening the score as opposed to actually equality.
