Jussie Smollett is proclaiming the reason why he was sentenced to serve 150 days in jail on Thursday is because he’s Black. The now disgraced actor fully expected to received a jail sentence because of his race, and not because he’s guilty staging the hate crime that he claims to have endured in September 2019.

The former ‘Empire’ star, who’s still denying to have any involvement in planning the hate crime hoax in Chicago, told his defense team before his sentencing he felt he would be treated more harshly than other defendants convicted of a non-violent crime. He believed his sentence would be longer because he’s Black, and his sentencing is more evidence of systemic racism in the judicial system.
