Jemele Hill Attempts To Turn Laura Ingraham’s Boycott Into A Discussion About Racism

On Friday, ESPN’s Jemele Hill made an assumption on Twitter that the boycott on Fox News Laura Ingraham’s show has something to do with the race.

Via Breitbart: “ESPN’s Jemele Hill has waded into the attacks on Fox News host Laura Ingraham, with an attempt to turn the controversy into a discussion about racism.
In a pair of Tweets on Friday, Hill implied that she thinks Ingraham got away with criticizing black basketball players without facing a boycott, but now she is finding trouble with David Hogg only because the kid is white.

“Always interesting to note what line can’t be crossed. Guess #ShutUpAndDribble wasn’t the line,” Hill Tweeted on March 30.

Hill went on with a second tweet bemoaning the racism in the U.S. by claiming LeBron James would have been “vilified” if he went after Ingraham’s advertisers.

“Maybe I’m just a cynic, but if LeBron called for her advertisers, he would have been vilified. And why do they need to be told? It seems like they should decide independently for themselves what’s acceptable and what’s not,” she wrote.

The former SportsCenter host is, of course, referring to another recent controversy where Laura Ingraham’s sharp tongue earned her a round of condemnation. In February, the Fox host told basketball players like LeBron James to “shut up and dribble,” to stop talking about politics, and just play their sport.

Ingraham was called a “racist” for attacking the players, but in her defense, she noted that the “shut up and” line is one of her typical rejoinders to those she has targeted for disagreement.”

Sadly Jemele Hill’s only comment every time is racism with zero supporting facts. Everything with her relates to “racism.” I bet, the only reason Jemele thinks the Laura Ingraham Boycott is about Racism is that she is a racist and wants the Boycott to be about racism.

But, there’s always secondary gain to be had by crying racism. She’s looking for the secondary gain that is for sure.
