Colin Kaepernick Comes to the Support of ESPN's Jemele Hill

In March, Hill tweeted that while there was a "limited market" for Kaepernick, once Trump told a rally that National Football League owners "don't want to get a nasty tweet" from him about signing the quarterback, it was a "wrap" that he would remain a free agent.

The White House on Wednesday said ESPN should fire SportsCenter co-host Jemele Hill for her tweets calling President Trump an ignorant bigot and white supremacist.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump, whose administration has shamelessly stoked racial tensions to fuel its political agenda of white supremacy-is still gainfully employed.

In Hill's string of tweets engaging with other Twitter users, she also declared Trump's rise to the White Hosue "is a direct result of white supremacy" and his white supremacy "is a threat to me".

I hope to see all the free speech supporters stand with Hill, even if they disagree with her.

In a statement on Tuesday, the network said Hill's views "do not represent the position of ESPN".


Fox News host Tucker Carlson had Fox Sports' Clay Travis on his show Tuesday night to continue what has become an ongoing conversation between the two about the downfall of ESPN due to its extreme leftward tilt.

ESPN's response to the controversy only drew more criticism from conservatives, who asserted that Hill should have been reprimanded for her tweets. Curt Schilling was sacked for supporting North Carolina's bathroom bill aimed at protecting women and girls from predators, and Britt McHenry was suspended for yelling at someone who was towing away her vehicle. "I don't know how big a percentage, but if anyone wants to ignore that fact, they're blind".

Jemele Hill is unapologetic in her beliefs.


"If you're a Republican or conservative, you feel the need to talk in whispers", one conservative ESPN employee said. There isn't one. There's clearly a double standard.

"If Obama bragged about grabbing women by their vaginas, you wouldn't have to say much, Britt, because he wouldn't have been elected", responded The MMQB's Robert Klemko. If you recall, the channel removed Dukes of Hazzard reruns from its airwaves forever because Bo and Luke Duke owned a vehicle called the General Lee, complete with a replica Confederate Flag on the roof.
