If you don’t know who Jemele Hill is, that’s ok. She’s never done anything significant or noteworthy in her life. The reason her name is printed here, and why you’re about to learn of her, is because she has been propped up by the woke ideologues of the left.
She used to work for ESPN, until she got fired for her extreme political views that she couldn’t stop tweeting about. Now she works as a sports writer for The Atlantic, and if that’s not enough for you to guess everything about her, then you just aren’t paying attention.
Using the most predictable and reasonable justification imaginable, she used her voice with the Atlantic to make a strong claim. According to her, black athletes should leave predominantly white colleges. Why? Because black colleges produce more black doctors, obviously.
Look, if you’re an NCAA athlete and you think you have a better chance of getting into med school by going to Howard, then go for it. If, however, you want to play in the NFL, Clemson and Alabama are clearly better choices. How is this even a conversation? The racial identities of students have nothing to do with how successful a program is. You’d have to be pretty racist to think otherwise.
Do you think that might strike a few nerves? Well, if you have any doubt as to whether or not Jemele Hill is a racist, try watching the video. All it takes is a few quotes and the truth becomes obvious.
The bigger problem, and it’s covered well in the video, is that Hill isn’t unique. She’s a simple product of identity politics, and it’s pretty easy to see how this mentality can hurt minorities.
