Here is a nice apology script for all of the race-baiting antagonists that were so quick to embrace the myth of systemic racism completely unchallenged, only because it came from the mouth of an affirmative-action created B-actor that checked off all of the oppressed boxes of race and homosexuality.
All Talking Heads that jumped to conclusion about Smollett’s false assertions because it fed their implicit bias, read this the next time you’re in front of a camera:
In 2019 when we were covering the story of Jessie Smollett’s alleged attack and assault, I was quick to assert his authenticity and truthfulness before I had any fact-based information on which to base that conclusion. By doing so, I demonstrated my implicit bias because the story played into my own version of how I see the world. I was wrong. I want to apologize to all of the decent White people that I smeared by implication with my rush to judgment. My actions and those of Smollett created accusations of racism and homophobia where none existed outside of the confines of our own false narratives.
Again, I was wrong and I apologize. Smollett is a liar, a race-baiting hate-monger and now, a convicted felon that will hopefully receive jail time. Going forward, I will make my best effort to report the news honestly, objectively and fairly, and check my own sorted baggage of jaded thoughts before I make stupid comments and accusations that are wrong.
