Inside Robin Roberts’ ‘GMA’ interview with Jussie Smollett – Page Six

I’ll be honest I did not watch the whole interview but the part that I did watch made me think that he was lying through his teeth. I know hindsight is 20/20 but it’s how I felt when I watched it. I thought the tears were phony and his whole storyline made no sense. Just as Robin Roberts said why would you not give up your phone when you are being threatened by two big guys. Your an actor on a successful television program and you can’t afford to get a new phone and it’s worth being injured for it? It didn’t make sense then and now we know it was not true.

Look as a gay man I wanted to believe him. But there were too many holes in the story. one more thing, if someone put a noose around my neck, I certainly would not walk around Chicago with it there and would have figured out a way of hiding it until I got to the hospital. But he did not he wore it all the way to the hospital.

I’ve said this before on this blog. What he did hurts every single person who has been, or will be a target of a hate crime. That’s all I can say at this point without getting angry.

Watch “John Oliver pays tribute to Orlando victims (HBO’s Last Week Tonight)” on YouTube

This video shows why John Oliver is so effective. I commend this statement that showed before the beginning of the show.
Unfortunately that the line of people you saw did not include any gay people. Because that hospital in Orlando does not allow blood from gay people. Even though all blood has to be tested for HIV, Florida is so dumb ass backwards that still does not take blood from gay people. And you know that’s the kind of thinking that makes people think that it’s ok to shoot gay people or Mexican people or black people or any slash people you want to think about. When I first got to France, as a very little boy, after having lived in Houston Texas in the early sixties I saw a black boy in my class. I came home and told my dad and he told me son when you cut yourself you’re ready and when he cuts himself he’s ready. We’re all the same inside.
Tonight I pray for all of those who were killed and hurt and especially their families who now will have an empty spot in their heart for ever because of some madman’s crazy mindset. And I hope the next time I see John Oliver I’ll actually be able to laugh.

Bill Gates sides with FBI over iPhone access issue 

I have said in the past on this blog that I’m going to let minds greater than mine decide how this should go. But thinking about it I’m starting to believe that Apple is using this as a marketing tool. It is completely unreasonable to think that one cannot write a one time only application to open that specific phone and not target all the other phones. If Apple is to be believed each phone has its own encryption. So deciphering the encryption for that one phone would not unlock all the other phones in the Apple world. I’m going with Bill Gates on this one and ask Apple unlock that phone and give the San Bernardino victims closer than they say basically need.
