FUCK ESPN. From [HERE] and [HERE] Jemele Hill's run at ESPN will end Friday as she and the company have reached a buyout of her $2.5 million contract, according to multiple reports. ESPN declined comment.
Hill, you may recall, was quietly moved off of Sports Center for tweeting that President Trump is a “white supremacist.” Since leaving “SportsCenter” earlier this year, she has barely worked, making a divorce the obvious conclusion.
On September 11, 2017 Hill made a series of tweets critical of Dummy Trump. ESPN issued a statement saying Hill's comments "do not represent the position of ESPN. We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate." Hill later clarified that she stood by her comments as representative of her personal beliefs; "My regret is that my comments and the public way I made them painted ESPN in an unfair light." Some criticized Hill's comments, including White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who called them "a fireable offense by ESPN"; Trump criticized the network and demanded an apology.
The White House 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 tweet about Trump but was thwarted after her co-host Michael Smith and others refused to go on the air without her.
On October 9, 2017, ESPN suspended Hill again for two weeks for a "second violation of our social media guidelines" for a series of tweets about racist suspect Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Days before, 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. [MORE] See the offending tweets below:
Elite white media such as the Washington Post 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 from the above.
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.
Hill pointed out the hypocrisy of owners of losing NFL teams and a league filled with mediocre white quarterbacks that could not find a place on their roster for Kaepernick, a proven winner.
She also supported Kaepernick's position about cops.
DISAPPEARING. Dr. Amos Wilson explains, 'Any act or attitude on the part of Blacks which appears to White Americans to defy White American authority, control or dominance is a problem to white folks.' [MORE]
Kaepernick led the 49ers to a Super Bowl and two NFC championship games and 2 years ago he threw 16 touchdown passes with four interceptions [MORE] Similarly, In 2018, Jemele Hill was named journalist of the year by the National Association of Black Journalists, in recognition of "a distinguished body of work with extraordinary depth, scope and significance to the people of the African Diaspora."
Like winning in the NFL, notions of a "free press" "freely exchanging ideas" in elite media are secondary to the system of racism/white supremacy, a global, white over Black system of unequal conditions & vast unequal power that functions in all areas of people activity, including sports & entertainment. Racism is not merely a pattern of individual and/or institutional practice; it is a universal operating "system" of white supremacy and domination in which the majority of the world's white people participate. [MORE]. Racism is not primarily means words, inconveniences and disrespect. As stated by belief system killer, Dr. 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. This relationship is maintained by elite racists in all areas of people activity. Amos Wilson describes such elites as "a white brotherhood collective." He says, "the White brotherhood collective as such, functions primarily as the central instrument of White power — a power in good part based on its subordination and exploitation of Afrikan and other non-White peoples, as well as the lower classes of White peoples. Therefore Blacks cannot simultaneously be at one with and at the same time separate subjects of White power. As J.C. Smith contends, "monopoly is the essence of power." The exercise of power by the White American ruling elite requires that it retains a monopoly of three kinds of power — physical or military power, economic power, and ideological power. "
Similar to the NFL, as explained by Ishmael Reed, "the media are as white as a KKK picnic." The media are a white owned enterprise with billions of dollars at their disposal. Most of the token Black, Latino and Asian -American commentators are those found non-threatening to the media's white subscribers and submissive to the editorial line coming from the top.. . . Major media effectively represent the interests of corporate America, and the media elite are the watchdogs of acceptable ideological messages, the parameters of news and information content and the general use of media resources." Amos Wilson states, "the central aim of the ruling elite's ideology process is to define the "domain of discourse." That is, the corporate elite seeks to define the limits of "acceptable ideas" and to define what is worth talking about, worth learning, teaching, promoting, and writing about. Of course, the limits of the "acceptable," the "responsible," are set at those points which support and justify the interests of the elite itself." He explains, "they choose what issues and information are to be emphasized, to be ignored or suppressed. Consequently, they create visibility and legitimacy for certain persons, groups and opinions and thereby impose limits on public knowledge, interest, discourse, understanding, behavioral orientation and capability. These contentions can be solidly substantiated by an analysis not only of the ownership and control of the mass media but even more relevant, of their general programmatic content." [MORE]
Kaepernick Rule. Let us not participate in any deception. Speaking out against acts of bigotry or the already unlawful use of excessive force by police is really not a radical thing to do. Complaining to the NBA demographic or to hip-hop fans about the illegal conduct of cops is not going out on a limb. For that matter, asking governments to enforce or apply existing laws to police is also not radical politics or protest. Kaepernick, on the other hand, took a risk and gambled his career ["only the gamblers know what life is"] with an NFL fanbase that is is 83 percent white and 64 percent male. Kaepernick said, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” [MORE] He spoke about a system that refuses to punish white cops who murder Blacks in broad daylight and rewards them for doing so. Kaepernick made it plain that cops function as a modern day "slave patrol" to enforce an oppressive white over Black system. He took it there and took it work because the NFL is apart of that system. Said system has now disappeared or filtered him out of the NFL. Elite white media who protect & serve the same system that Mr. Kaepernick protested have now also disappeared Jemele Hill. Such elites have also whitewashed and sanitized Kaepernick's message to diminish any discussion about white supremacy. Despite such efforts, YOUR chains should be more visible to you.
A re-emerging rule here is: any act or attitude on the part of Blacks which appears to White Americans to defy White American authority, control or dominance will trigger this reaction from elite whites. Any non-white person who names and challenges the system of racism/white supremacy may also be filtered out. Conversely, this is the exact opposite to "Showcase Blacks" who are handsomely rewarded & showcased by their masters for their obedience & worship of authority and SNiggering, mentacidal activities in all areas of people activity.
