SportsCenter co-host Jemele Hill said some real shit about Donald Trump and now the white boys over at ESPN aren’t happy.

Despite the fact that last month, the vast majority of Americans sat slack-jawed in horror as a sitting President co-signed the belligerent mob of neo-Nazis and white supremacists who participated in the Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville, where a young protester, Heather Heyer, lost her life.

But now, a month later, black people are being punished for calling DJT exactly what he is; a white supremacist.

Instead of supporting the sports anchor an opinion that wasn’t even controversial three weeks ago, ESPN issued a statement publicly condemning Hill’s words as “inappropriate”, ensuring (white) viewers that she would be dealt with.

Because the only thing more inappropriate than being a racist is calling one out, apparently.
