Corrupt State's Attorney Kimm Foxx: I've Been Wondering What All the Criticism of My Exoneration of Jussie Smollett Is Really About, and I Think Maybe It's All About Race

There certainly was racism in play here.

The racists stuck together, as they tend to do.

Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx made the comments during a defiant and emotional address at the Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr.'s Rainbow Push Coalition. Foxx openly wondered if her race had something to do with the harsh criticism she's faced since her office announced that charges against Smollett had been dropped. The actor was accused of staging what he claimed to be a racist and homophobic attack in January.

"I have been asking myself for the last two weeks what is this really about," she said. "As someone who has lived in this city, who came up in the projects of this city to serve as the first African American woman in this role, it is disheartening to me ... that when we get in these positions somehow the goalposts change."

A racist playing the race card. Who saw that coming.
