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.
@Starbucks The police were called because these men hadn’t ordered anything. They were waiting for a friend to show up, who did as they were taken out in handcuffs for doing nothing. All the other white ppl are wondering why it’s never happened to us when we do the same thing. pic.twitter.com/0U4Pzs55Ci

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.
“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.
Because the police had been called, I’m guessing the least they had to do is ask these gentlemen to leave. But why arrest them? Why embarrass them by placing handcuffs on them? I have seen plenty of officers de-escalate situations like these. https://t.co/2aIKIo1K2T

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.
That’s another question I’d like to be answered. I get responding to the complaint but they took every step afterward as if the intention was to prosecute to the fullest extent. The fact that this even crossed a prosecutor’s desk is mind blowing. https://t.co/Bbyan5RJIJ

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:
We apologize to the two individuals and our customers for what took place at our Philadelphia store on Thursday. pic.twitter.com/suUsytXHks

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.

SHOCK PHOTO: NFL Anthem Kneeler Accused of Domestic Violence in Disturbing Instagram Post
A disturbing image has been posted to Instagram accusing an NFL star of domestic violence.
“[LeSean McCoy] is THE DEVIL!!!,” the post says. “YOU ARE AN ANIMAL!!!!!! We didn’t say anything about how you beat your dog ‘Henny’ into kidney failure. Let’s not talk about all the times my best friend had to stop you from VICIOUSLY beating your son for small things like peeing in the bed. We kept quiet about your drug usage … all the ILLEGAL steroids and needles you were using, but we will not keep quiet about this!!!!!! I can’t believe you did this to my best friend!!!!!”
WARNING: THIS IMAGE IS VERY DISTURBING
The poster goes by username miamor_i_adore, and claims that the photo is of her best friend, who is not named.
“The world needs to know what type of animal you really are!!!!!!!,” the post says. “This was just her yesterday on the left and now this morning this is her on the right!!!!”
LeSean McCoy is a star running back for the NFL’s Buffalo Bills. He has denied the allegations.
“For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false,” McCoy wrote on his Instagram. Further more [sic], I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved for months.”
The Buffalo Bills have not released a statement, but are aware of the allegations according to ESPN.
McCoy was embroiled in the NFL’s kneeling scandal, during which players refused to stand during the National Anthem. He was particularly disrespectful during the ordeal, warming up and doing stretches during the Anthem during one game.
“I was extremely hurt to be honest,” McCoy said of his actions. “Because at first everybody has their own opinion like I talked about. People believe different things. They want to stand up for it or they don’t want to stand up for it. That’s their right. Some of the words the president used just rubbed me the wrong way. It really did. I was upset and I was frustrated. That was the way I wanted to express myself. I took a knee, I started stretching. I was angry. I was hurt. Like I said before after the game, somebody like the president and being our leader of this country for millions and millions and millions of people. They look at America and see the type of words he’s saying about us. It just got to me. It really did. Every week it will be different.”
