Trump-Hating Former ESPN Anchor Jemele Hill Urges Segregation for Black College Athletes
Jemele Hill left ESPN after she got in hot water for promoting her leftist, ultra-racial agenda, but she was quickly picked up by The Atlantic where she continues to write divisive articles to foment racial tension.
Hill’s latest piece is set to be published in October and is titled, “It’s Time for Black Athletes to Leave White Colleges.” Hill is apparently so woke that she is now pushing a new form of segregation among college athletes.
Very proud that my first magazine piece for @TheAtlantic is appearing in the October issue. Been working on it for some time. Here it is —> Why Black Athletes Need to Leave White Colleges https://t.co/orCDWF8UkT

“[S]ome black students feel safer, both physically and emotionally, on an HBCU campus — all the more so as racial tensions have risen in recent years. Navigating a predominantly white campus as a black student can feel isolating, even for athletes,” she wrote.
Hill calls for a movement of black athletes to push back against the white university system by orchestrating a coordinated boycott against it.
“Black athletes overall have never had as much power and influence as they do now. While NCAA rules prevent them from making money off their own labor at the college level, they are essential to the massive amount of revenue generated by college football and basketball. This gives them leverage, if only they could be moved to use it,” Hill wrote.
She hopes that young top-level black athletes, who often know each other before they jump from high school to college, will go to a black-dominated university, despite the fact that their facilities are usually underfunded and sub-standard, in order to make a political statement in favor of racial solidarity.
“Many of the top high-school players, especially in basketball, know one another from Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) tournaments and all-star games, as the Fab Five did,” Hill wrote, referring to the iconic trope of players who all decided to go to the University of Michigan in the early 1990s.
“If a few of them got together at HBCUs, they could redraw the landscape of college basketball,” she added.
Hill finished up her article with outright racist sentiments, inferring that the current collegiate system is designed to exploit black labor for the purposes of making white people rich.
“If promising black student athletes chose to attend HBCUs in greater numbers, they would, at a minimum, bring some welcome attention and money to beleaguered black colleges, which invested in black people when there was no athletic profit to reap,” Hill wrote.
“More revolutionarily, perhaps they could disrupt the reign of an “amateur” sports system that uses the labor of black folks to make white folks rich,” she concluded.
Hill gained national notoriety after she famously called President Donald Trump a white supremacist, a move that eventually led to her being forced out of ESPN after 12 years with the company.
Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.

“It wasn’t even original,” Hill said, in a defense of her remarks. “That’s what is so crazy. I got famous for saying something that wasn’t original. It wasn’t new. It was not breaking news. I thought we all decided this after Charlottesville.”
Unfortunately for Hill, it is not likely that young African-American student athletes are going to sacrifice their own potential to fulfill her twisted agenda. The top schools, which already do have many black people working in prominent staff roles, with the largest budgets and the proven track record of success will continue to recruit the best talent, despite her best attempts at cultural Marxist social engineering.
