How does Jemele Hill still have her job?

Curt Schilling was fired from ESPN for offering political opinions while working there.

People saying the Schilling comparison is not valid. Wrong.

Schilling was warned several times to stop and ignored it ... Hill has been warned a number of times as well and doesn't stop.

If any ESPN staffer said about Obama the equivalent of what Jemele Hill said about Trump, they would be fired on the spot.

I can't either.

The reason she will not see any consequences is because she holds 2 cards ... Race and Gender

Many at ESPN have free reign. Stephen A is another one. The only people who need to watch what they say there are the Male white ones. Sorry but it's the truth. That dumbass Jess Mendoza should be gone too but since she is a woman ........

Jessica Mendoza is totally worthless and so is that clueless airhead Cari Champion.

There are Tons of more qualified men that could easily replace them but just because they are women they get the job.

In no way being sexist ... just stating facts.

She is truly talentless too but in this case that is secondary to what she stated.

Total double standard.

If any white talking head on ESPN would have said something like that about Obama they would have lost their job no question about it.

She should be fired period.

She's there to piss off white males like you all bitching here.

Your solution is to turn it off and find something else to watch or do altogether.

I don't watch and I have not since that show took the place of Sportscenter. Doesn't mean I still can't think she sucks because she does. That is why I don't watch.

Fantastic point.

For now on I'll stop bitching and stay off all social media / stop watching sports and learn to crochet.

You're missing the point.

The media knows you won't watch a BLM channel, so they shove it in your face at ESPN, because for the most part you're going to continue watching it regardless.

ESPN is not doing Disney stock any favours, and this shit - not helping. I'm sure they're doing a trial run, hoping these political stances on the president will help draw attention of women, minorities and millennials. But it surely won't, because I'm quite sure ESPN's highest demographic is middle-aged white men.

Here is the other double standard that makes me sick.

If this was a white anchor/reporter/talking head there would already be a planned march at the ESPN headquarters and a call for a boycott of their sponsors to put pressure on ESPN to fire the white individual.

Why do I not hear the same over what Hill stated?

1) All of us have jobs and aren't "professional" protesters so that helps eliminate the march/rally.

2) If we all said boycott the sponsors and/or ESPN it would be labeled racist, alt-right, or some other bs tag by the media.

I see ESPN has issued their weak ass apology but nothing from Hill and she still has her job...fucking unreal.

"Colin Kaepernick, a quarterback who somehow still hasn't been picked up by an NFL team..."

First sentence and the article/author/outlet already lost all credibility.

ESPN suspended Linda Cohn for saying ESPN was talking too much politics.

Didn't suspend Jemele Hill for saying Trump was a racist.

ESPN president John Skipper Told Cohn not to come to work and to think about what she said.

ESPN fucking sucks. I had to watch a Bronco game with the sound off. Wish Fox sports would come in and take over ESPN's football then I would never have to watch them again.

If a white espn worker had said obama is a racist.

He or she would have been fired in a split second.

As should have hill. Its beyond a joke. And im not a trump fan.

I think there has to be a consequence for her actions and that she should be fired.


Even though I agree with what she said.
