In this video, we’re going to talk about Jussie small lead. And the news recently broke, that he’s been sentenced to jail. And he has something to say about the reason that happened. I’m gonna let you know what I think about it. So, this is your first time watching. I’m your host, Montay Lee, this is the Karat Juice Podcast. The source is courtesy of TMZ. And if you haven’t heard the original story, the background to this is Jussie Smollett, a couple years back was he stated that he was attacked by some white men. And it was during a point in time where there was a lot of racial tension in America, that has been proven to not be true. It actually was said that he hired to black two men to carry this out. And to say that to basically say that, to corroborate his story, or what have you. So there’s a lot to this, and I’m going to talk about what was released here on TMZ. So let’s go to TMZ for the report, please. So Jussie Smollett says, I got jail time because I’m black.
That’s a picture Jussie Smollett right there. He says he believes there’s one overarching reason he was sent to jail. And it’s not because of the hoax. He says it’s because he’s black sources with direct knowledge and in constant touch with the Empire actor. Tell TMZ Jussie Smollett fully expected to get jail time. He told his defense team before sentencing, he felt he would be treated more harshly than other defendants convicted of a non violent crime all because of the color of his skin. He thinks it’s more evidence of systemic racism in the judicial system on play this year.
So the jury found you guilty and sentence II as I have, you have the right to appeal the findings ruling support, rescue sentence be modified to do those things and you follow notice of appeal in writing within 30 days, we also file a motion to modify your sentence which can be filed in writing within 30 days. Anything not stated in those filings or wait for purposes of appeal. You cannot afford lawyers have transcripts, they would be provided free of charge. Do you have any questions?

I am not suicidal.

I am not suicidal. Okay. I am not suicidal, I am innocent, and I am not suicide. If I did this, then it means that I stuck my fist in the fears of black Americans in this country for over 400 years and the fears of the LGBT community. Your Honor, I respect you and I respect the jury, but I did not do this and I am not suicidal. And if anything happens to me when I go in there, I did not do it to myself, and you must all know that. I respect you, Your Honor. I respect your decision. jail time. I am not suicidal.
Okay. Mr. Gucci. Let me inquire Are there any post sentencing motions you care to present right now? Yes. Judge? Yes. All right. Defendants remanded to the custody Sheriff, courts Cortez?

Jussie told his team after sentencing he was dead on when he predicted the outcome based on animosity the judge showed toward him he called it unfortunate and sad As you know, the judge read Jessie the riot act saying the hoax was rooted in a desire for more fame and more attention. TMZ says we reached out to the court for comment and a rep for the Cook County chief judges office tells TMZ judges can’t comment on pending cases. And it’s still Indy also says As we reported, Jussie will be held in protective custody as requested while serving his time behind bars with security cameras and an officer with a body worn camera monitoring his cell. Our sources say Jussie spoke out in court not being suicidal, because he wanted to make it clear to the public that if something were to happen to him in jail, it was foul play. And our sources reference the Jeffrey Epstein outcome. And that was what was on Jussie’s mind when he made the comment. Jussie was taken into custody following Thursday syncing and we’re told he spoke with his defense team Friday telling them he’s okay and fill with hope.
Okay.. I’m just going to say this. I call it down the line. Whether you’re white, black, purple, blue, man, female, whatever your pronouns are doesn’t matter. I’m going to call it how I see it. And what I think is right. You don’t have to think that I’m right. But I’m gonna say it anyway. Listen, Jussie, you got caught trying to, you know, I don’t know, be a social justice warrior. And trying to you know, get in on the, you know, victim Olympics, as far as something bad happens to you when it clearly has not. The men came out and said that you told them to say things happened to you, that didn’t happen to you. It’s all been documented. Everybody knows that you lie and raw. So why are you trying to even bring more attention to yourself? Talking about if something happens to you, nobody wants to do anything to you, man. Just go serve your five months or whatever, the 150 days or five months, you’ll get good time on that. So you won’t even do that much time. And then when you come out, make better decisions. You know, one thing I can’t stand, I can’t stand when people don’t take accountability and try to blame everything, just because of the complexion of their skin. All right. No, you I respect to you. And if you are somebody that is my complexion as well, I respect you and I’m an I love you enough to tell you that if you want to be something in a you want to do something, you have every opportunity to do that, if you’re willing to put in the work. It’s not always about these oppression, Olympics, having that mindset where you always think that you’re a victim, you will always be one. And that’s the flat, honest truth. Get out of that oppressive mindset. Have a victor mindset rather than a victim mindset. Go serve your time and when you get out of here. Just get out of that is not going to help you it’s not going to serve you thinking that everybody’s out to get you. That’s just the god to honest truth, man. And that’s my thoughts on this. I can’t stand when people try to piggyback on the oppression Olympics, you know, to woke for their own good, because it doesn’t help anybody. When you claim that a hate crime happened to you that didn’t happen to you, you know what it does? Same thing like with the the false accusations and what have you, when you claim something like that, when there’s an actual victim where something heinous actually has happened to somebody, and it’s an hate crime, people are going to look at that skeptically because of you because of something you decided to do. You got to take accountability for this. I won’t stand for this. Okay, it’s just ridiculous. Alright. And that’s my thoughts on it. Let me know what you think you can agree with me not. At this point. It really doesn’t matter. I would like to know what you think. And I respect everybody’s opinion. Just keep the comments respectful, if you’re going to comment down below, and yeah, that’s what I think about this. If you appreciate this, and you like this content in this raw commentary.
