The White Supremacy Empire Strikes Back: ESPN Suspends Jemele Hill for Boycott Instruction against the Cowboys

Racist Suspect Jerry Jones is Sponsored by Ford Motor Co. among others in Racist System. From [ThinkProgress] ESPN has suspended SportsCenter anchor Jemele Hill for a series of tweets about racist suspect Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. On Sunday, Jones said that any Cowboys player who did not stand for the national anthem would not be allowed to play.

Hill was responding to angry fans who were encouraging the Cowboys’ star players to test Jones’ resolve. Hill countered that this was an unfair burden to put on the players and if fans objected, they should act.

[Elite white media who protect & serve the same system that Mr. Kaepernick protested [the system of racism/white supremacy] such as the Washington Post have characterized her tweets as "urging a boycott" or "encouraging a boycott" as described by CNBC. lol. Only a racist would analyze and dissect her tweets with such a hyper-alert expectation in search of confirmation of their projected suspicions and find advocacy or a boycott instruction here, from the above. What is identity politics? What is white collective power? ' Unless Hill becomes obedient, she will soon be filtered out - like KaepernickAny act or attitude on the part of Blacks which appears to whites to defy white American authority, control or dominance is a problem to white folks.' [MORE]]

Hill later clarified that she was not advocating a boycott of Cowboy’s advertisers, but making the point that fans should not place the burden on the players alone.

ESPN, nevertheless, has suspended Hill for two weeks, saying the tweets violated their social media policy.

The White House has previously called for Hill’s firing after she tweeted that President Trump was a “white supremacist.”

ThinkProgress reported exclusively in September that ESPN attempted to remove Hill from the air after her tweeted about Trump but was thwarted after her co-host Michael Smith and others refused to go on the air without her.

As stated by belief system killerDr. Blynd, "racism/white supremacy it is a power group dynamic, i.e., a defined group cooperatively via legacy institutions exerting structured, systematic injustice and power over another group. Racism is not individualistic, but institutional, cultural, economic, political, linguistic, self perpetuating and systematic. Racism is economic discrimination by a group against another for the purpose of subjugation and/or maintaining the imbalance of power through cooperative control and oppression." [MORE

This "power group dynamic" concerns a relationship between whites and Blacks. We need to re-examine our role within this relationship. No one can play master without servants - it is a two way relationship.  As stated by Amos Wilson, ‘Black people's uncritical acceptance of the rules, moral beliefs, perspectives, and their customary traditional participation in the American (White) political-economic process and system is tantamount to the legitimization of their own oppression and to the consensual ensurance of their own powerlessness.’ [MORE]  

A boycott is a method to alter this relationship. It is “the great power of withdrawal” of our consent or participation in this system. African Americans' collective purchasing power is an estimated 1.3 trillion dollars. [MORE]. Black dollars matter. Rather than begging or trying to persuade racists to change a particular course of conduct a successful boycott can force change.  

However, boycotts cannot be random or individual. Personal boycotts or symbolic boycotts are not boycotts. They are simply an individual consumer choice and have only a minimal, symbolic effect. This is more "protest" actually in cooperation with and submission to white supremacy/racism.  

Rather, a boycott is a collective, group effort to inflict some economic loss to compel the target to change its conduct. A boycott must be an actual organized campaign that directly communicates to Black consumers to mobilize their participation via social media & grassroots organizing in Black & Brown communities/organizations and then targets specific businesses. Recently for example, Bill O'Reilly was fired [not over racism] for his foul treatment of women after corporate sponsors began to pullout from FoxNews when advocates began to apply pressure to them [MORE] and [MORE]. After O'Reilly was fired, the financial markets responded positively to the decision by Fox News, and its parent company 21st Century Fox rose over two percent in the stock market the next day.[MORE] Other examples include the gay and lesbian boycott of advertisers of the "Dr. Laura" talk show, gun owners' similar boycott of advertisers of Rosie O'Donnell's talk show and (later) magazine, and gun owners' boycott of Smith & Wesson following that company's March 2000 settlement with the Clinton administration. They may be initiated very easily using either Web sites (the Dr. Laura boycott), newsgroups (the Rosie O'Donnell boycotts), or mailing lists, twitter etc. Internet-initiated boycotts can "snowball" very quickly compared to other forms of organization [MORE] -by individuals who are serious about changing something.  

It is not practical to ask Black NFL fans to stop watching the NFL. Besides, NFL television ratings are based on Nielsen ratings. So unless you are a Nielsen viewer, whatever you decide to watch or not watch on Sundays will not be measured in any way to actually threaten the NFL. Clearly, the NFL makes its money from its sponsorship and merchandising. It makes no practical sense to turn off the games but then go out and spend your money on all the corporations that the NFL profits from.

However, activist minded Black fans might be willing to boycott many of the NFL’s sponsors such as Papa-Johns, Anheuser-Busch, Ford, McDonald’s, Nationwide, Verizon, Visa, etc. and many others that are white owned & controlled. All these sponsors have competitors and their services or products could be easily substituted by other brands by Black consumers. For example, Mecca Cola and Qibla Cola have been purchased and marketed as substitutes for Coca-Cola among Muslim populations. Such corporations who adverstise and enable the NFL to reap billions could be targeted in a 'for real' boycott.  

In theory, a successful boycott can empower Blacks & Latinos and simultaneously disempower elite whites and change the relations and structure of social power." However, it must be executed to be more than a media stunt or another beggar politics episode. [MORE]
