Should The NAACP Drop Jussie Smollet's Image Award Nomination?

The mysterious case of what actually went down the night Jussie Smollet claims he was racially attacked has still not been solved. However, the 'Empire' actor is nominated by the NAACP for an Image Award. The award show that is scheduled to happen on March 30th, has not made a statement.

But, Project 21, a black conservative group is pressuring the NAACP to drop Jussie Smollett's nomination. They say, "It would be nothing short of a slap in the face to those civil rights heroes for the NAACP to now honor Smollett with an Image Award while he’s suspected of using symbols of racial barbarism — including a noose — to shamelessly advance and promote his career”

Smollett is currently being charged with 16 counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report.

What do you think the NAACP should do?
