ESPN Social Justice Warrior Jemele Hill Slanders Philly PD For Starbucks Arrests

Published

on

Clearly, failed ESPN blogger Jemele Hill can’t help herself.

No matter the situation, no matter the circumstances, no matter the facts, Jemele Hill can and will find a way to claim literally everything is racist.

Case in point, over the weekend, a video emerged of two black men being arrested inside a Philadelphia Starbucks, leading a countless number of social justice warriors on Twitter to fire up their outrage machine and question whether the men were only being arrested because of their race.

After all, the video does not include any context for the arrest, so the only logical assertion any self-respecting social justice warrior can make is a simple one – racism.

A white SJW can even be heard in the video questioning the intentions of the arresting officers.

Additionally, Melissa DePino, the user who originally posted the video and describes herself in her Twitter profile as “outraged since Nov. 8,” used her original Tweet to frame the narrative she wanted to push by asserting the police officers arrested the two men for “doing nothing.”

With such a groundswell of social justice warrior propaganda already propping the story up and bringing attention to anyone who Tweeted about it, it wasn’t long before the more popular, attention seeking SJW’s, like Jemele Hill, emerged on the scene.

When a fellow Twitter user suggested that maybe, just maybe, she should wait for all the facts to come in before making the leap to claim racism, Hill was having none of that.

As usual, though, the facts did eventually begin to reveal themselves.

And, as usual, folks like Jemele Hill were left looking rather foolish.

According to Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross, who just so happens to be a black man, the facts of the situation – as they almost always happen to do – completely justified the officers’ actions.

The AP reports:

“Commissioner Richard Ross said Starbucks employees called 911 to say the men were trespassing. He said officers were told that the men had come in and asked to use the restroom but were denied because they hadn’t bought anything, as he said is company policy. He said they then refused to leave.

Ross, who is black, said police asked the men to leave three times but they refused, and they were then arrested but were later released after the company elected not to prosecute. He said the officers “did absolutely nothing wrong” and were professional in their conduct toward the individuals but “got the opposite back.” He did not mention the person who said he was meeting with the men.

“As an African American male, I am very aware of implicit bias; we are committed to fair and unbiased policing,” Ross said. But he added “If a business calls and they say that ‘Someone is here that I no longer wish to be in my business’ (officers) now have a legal obligation to carry out their duties and they did just that.”

This perfectly acceptable answer and rationale for the situation, however, completely failed to satisfy perpetually outraged social justice warriors like Jemele Hill, who interestingly shifted her argument once presented with the facts.

With her logic crumbling beneath her feet, Hill realized these 5 minutes of fame were soon coming to an end, if she didn’t change her argument once again.

This time, rather than questioning whether race played a role in their actual arrest, Hill declared that race must have played a role in the amount of time the two men remained in custody.

But once again, her insatiable desire to jump to conclusions and cry racism got the the better of Jemele Hill.

Had she merely waited just a moment for the facts to emerge, she would’ve known the two men were only kept in custody after 1:00 A.M. because that’s how long it took Starbucks to inform the police that they wouldn’t be pressing charges.

Considering the fact that it was their corporate policy that caused this entire fiasco, it was only right for Starbucks to issue this apology:

Of course, in keeping with their liberal company’s nature, Starbucks is also extremely likely to take their reaction to this ordeal a step too far as they look to avoid an incident like this in the future.

On Monday’s “Good Morning America,” Starbucks’s chief executive Kevin Johnson called for “unconscious bias” training for employees.

“My responsibility is to look not only to that individual but look more broadly at the circumstances that set that up just to ensure that never happens again,” Johnson said.

The manager who followed Starbucks’ company policy by calling the police on the two men in Philadelphia is no longer employed by the company, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Major League Baseball Considering Starting Season in Arizona During Coronavirus

The games will be played with no fans.

Published

on

Major League Baseball is considering starting its regular season exclusively in the state of Arizona, with teams utilizing spring training facilities and the Arizona Diamondbacks Chase Field to play regular season games without fans present.

League officials and representatives of the MLB’s players union were reported to be in talks about the unprecedented proposal on Monday. The season was suspended in early March as the severity of the coronavirus epidemic became apparent, following in the wake of the NBA and the NHL.

Arizona has ten spring training facilities within fifty miles, all situated within the Phoenix metro area. Florida, the other state that hosts spring training facilities, has them spread over an area of 220 miles. Arizona’s warm and dry climate is also resilient to the spread of infectious diseases, and Americans have come to the state to improve their health for decades.

However, the proposal would entail games being played in empty stadiums without fans. Spring training facilities would be used, and the proposal would purportedly involve the Diamondbacks’ Chase Field hosting daily tripleheaders.

Longtime player agent Scott Boras endorsed the proposal when speaking with Fox News, arguing that the presence of Major League Baseball would provide a form of entertainment for Americans distressed by the historically unprecedented Chinese coronavirus.

It allows for the immediacy of a schedule, where you might be able to begin it and televise it, provide Major League Baseball to America,” said Boras of the idea. “You talk to a psychologist about it and they say it’s it’s really good for a culture to have to have sport and to have a focus like that, where for a few hours a day they can take their minds off the difficult reality of the virus.”

In any case, there’s no chance of the season beginning in any capacity before mid-May at the earliest. But if the proposal is utilized, the MLB could be the first major American sporting league to resume operations in the wake of the coronavirus.
