Jemele Hill is at it again.
The anti-President Trump sports journalist continues to perpetuate liberal nonsense on Twitter while her followers eat up her garbage rhetoric.
But the former SC6 host just got a rude awakening from rising conservative star and Turning Point USA communications director, Candace Owens, about race in America.
Jemele Hill grew to national infamy last year after she declared that President Trump was a “white supremacist.”
ESPN suspended her for two weeks after her controversial tweet and she subsequently left SC6 due to its catastrophic ratings decline. Now, she’s a senior columnist for an ESPN subsidiary,The Undefeated.
Candace Owens recently went head-to-head with the Trump-hating sports analyst on Twitter about race and even challenged her to a public debate on the subject.
It all began when Hill commented on a CNN tweet about anti-gun protesters shutting down a Chicago highway and wrote, “BUT WHAT ABOUT CHICAGO?”
This was an obvious slight towards the debate about police brutality against African Americans and mocking those that bring up Chicago as being one of the worst crime per capita areas in America.
She was criticized heavily for this tweet and then wrote,“Black ppl just hate racism. That’s it. And really that’s the only reason we’ve been labeled as liberal. Some people have turned racism into a political issue when it’s a moral one.”
That’s an absurd conclusion that she reached.
And that’s when Owens showed up to own Hill on her ill-conceived logic.
Owens wrote, “All people hate racism, Jemele. Haven’t met a single white person that loves being called a cracker, or a Spanish person that prefers being referred to as a sp*c.”
Hill responded, “With all due respect, all people do not hate racism. Racism is profitable and worse, comfortable. Showing a disdain for slurs is about appearing polite. I’ll be far more impressed when that energy is used to dismantle systems created to crush marginalized peoples.”
Owens agreed that racism was profitable, but then exposed the Democratic Party as being the main culprits for that.
Owens wrote back, “It’s why Dems use people like you to continually speak about it. The goal is to paralyze blacks with undue fear, keeping us enslaved to ideologies that continue to fail us.”
The conservative commentator is absolutely right that the Democratic Party uses these “marginalized minorities” to weaponize them against conservatism in America.
It’s a blame game. Point fingers at someone else for your problems.
And worse yet, the Democratic Party wants them to dwell on the past instead of focusing on their future. That’s the liberals’ modus operandi.
Owens then respectfully invited Hill on “The Rubin Report” –a YouTube channel that features one of the largest free-thinking talk shows.
She said, “If you truly believe what you believe, and your goal is to educate— then the greatest thing that we can do is to respectfully debate so that the many people that follow us can understand the source of our perspectives.”
And that’s when Hill fell off the grid.
Many Twitter users were eager to see this debate come to fruition, but Hill ghosted everyone for an extended period of the time in the middle of a conversation.
After a while, Hill finally responded,“I find it so strange that people make these kinds of requests often. Is this pay-per-view? The implication is that anybody tagged in this has to validate their viewpoint.”
Yeah, that’s what a civil discourse is all about, Jemele. How it works is that people publicly engage with each other so the viewers can decide for themselves which side of the argument makes the most sense.
Owens accused her of dancing around the issue instead of backing up her logic and was persistent in getting her to debate in a professional setting.
But Hill hid from the challenge by simply responding with, “I’m good luv. Enjoy.”
Hill is probably too scared to go toe-to-toe with Owens because she doesn’t have anything intelligent to back up her rhetoric.
But even if she weren’t scared, ESPN probably wouldn’t allow her to do that to herself anyway.
