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.
