    Re: Jamele Hill = Racist

    Exactly. It's a question of ethics.  Unless, of course, she feels she isn't doing anything out of the norm here because she is actually a racist, which obviosuly she clearly is.

    She's quite the little character too. She acts like this is normal.

    Yes, let's focus on the Lakers/Celts rivalry and put a big steamy turd on it when your only appreciation for it is centered around taking sides, between blacks and whites, with LA and Boston, respectively.

    That's so lame, juvenile and racist.  Nice parents, Jamele.  Good work.  You may be intelligent, but you clearly were raised as a racist.

    If a white writer did that, what she does, and said white players are smarter (for example), hence why they stay out of trouble more, I would expect blacks to be annoyed and consider it a racially tinged column.

    Obviously.

    Why should minorities use that angle and not be called out on it?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Jamele Hill = Racist : No, I didn't imply any such thing. I've already explicity stated why I asked both the background and experiences of discrimination. Go back and read. In addition, I am not defending her article. It's crap.  However, you've declared her as being a racist - and all that you have to support that is the fact that she has published numerous race-baiting articles. She is paid to write the crap, it doesn't make her racist.  She writes it cuz it  pays da bills. Now, if you told me that you had a chance to speak with her in person - and she got hostile with you and told you to get your cracker-azz out of her office....then you'd have a point.

    Ok, so we just disagree. You feel she is not a racist and does this on the company order.  I think that is a cop out and you seem to be defending her or the instructions from ESPN.

    I disagree.

    I think she has the freedom to write as she wishes as does Howard Bryant. They choose to write about this, because they are infatuated with it and believe it.

    Did ESPN force Bryant to write his book?  I don;t think so.

    I do think ESPN tries to generate certain angles and I do feel they may advise their writers or talking heads, but if this was the case, they wouldn't have had her censor her own work before.

    She had said that the Celtics were Hitler Mind you, Auerbach was Jewish and had a boatload of blacks in the NBA before it was popular) column removed or altered, I forget which. But, it was definitely addressed before.

    So, a Jewish guy who was a great ambassador, basically built the NBA, tooko the person as the person and coached blacks, his team was "like Hitler" to ehr?

    Gee, Jamele. Way to do your homework and not look like you have an agenda.

    I am not a sensitive person when it comes to discussing historical topics to be able to discuss freely as a way to be able to hit on all aspects, but I just feel like there is no need for race to be focused on unless it's a retrospective piece on something that has to include race.

    It's two different things (sports and race). This is totally unnecessary and prods at the back issues this country has had.

    When will it end?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Jamele Hill = Racist : 1. It's unlikely a non-black writer would take that angle. 2. But, yes, any time your premise or focus is centered around race, absolutely it's race baiting, black, white, yellow or green. We aren't discussing History or aspects of soceity or in taking Socio-Economics here. These guys get paid millions of dollars as a chip to make millions more for the owners.  Everyone is under the gun at that position. It's about winning and SBs. Doug Williams gets credit for catching fire and winning a SB. It was great, but he didn't have a great career. McNabb has had a GREAT career but has failed to the deliver the hardware. He also has technical flaws in his throws and hasn't shown to be the best leader. So be it. Can we just call it like it is on face value and judge people in this context on their merit? How hard is this?  If you're racist, apparently it's very hard.

    I think you've gone off a tangent here. You're title declares that Jamele Hill is a racist.

    We both agree that the article involves race-baiting.   Neither of us think much of the article because - as you've already state - it's just race-baiting crap.

    We both agree - that these kinds of articles - and that the purpose of the media is about bringing in money.

    She gets paid to do a job. Her job is to write inflammatory articles, because that's what her employer tells her to do.

    You say - take it for face value - so, mebbe you should. Mebbe it's exactly that - a race baiting article. That doesn't mean she's racist.

    True, but we disagree.

    This means you think she plays an angle because ESPN tells here to do so.  I don't think that is the case.

    You may very well be correct, but this also means she has sold herself off and has absolutely zero principle.

    So, I am half right. At the very least she is a phony perpetuating the issue.

    You look at BrooklineRob and he's 1000 times the person Jamele Hill is. He's actually stemming the tide, not massaging it for money.

    Some people get it, some don't.  Jamele Hill doesn;t get it.

    No sports fan wants to read that JUNK. PERIOD.

    Sports is an escape not a reminder we have racists writing about a game for money.

    9/10 her columans are like this. What else are we supposed to think?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Jamele Hill = Racist : Yes she gets paid to do it but, imo at leas,t if you don't agree with what you are doing then you don't do it. Some of you know I'm an engineer, if a company gives me a paycheck and tells me to sign off on a design that has a fatal flaw and might result in injury then isn't it my duty to quit the company and report them for unsafe practices? It's the same thing in my mind, if she didn't believe what she was writing then she shouldn't have to written it. And if a company tells her to write something to bait racist based solely on the fact that it sells copies then wouldn't they in fact be inciting racism? So to me you are either trying to fix the problem or you're only promoting the problem which makes you part of the problem. I guess the best analogy I can give are priests. It pays very little (opposite of her actually) but it's their job to spread the word so I wouldn't expect to see someone who didn't believe in what they were preaching becoming a priest just for a pay check

    I hear what you're saying. Trust me, I don't think much of her article, but I think it's too easy nowadays to simply declare her as a racist. People talk about business ethics once in a while.....the theory always looks good on paper, but in real life  things happen.

    I am going to go ahead, after about 5 columns of hers with premises that are race based, and guess that she is a racist.

    Her writing is pretty direct.  You can't fake that. She believes it.

    I think it is that cut and dry though. If she wasn't consistently writing articles like this I'd give her the benefit of the doubt but after so many articles you become what you write. For example if a tobacco company pays me to write 1 or 2 positive articles it would make me ethically unsound but if I wrote dozens upon dozens of articles about the subject am I not a tobacco advocate at that point? Or how about Jon Stewart, he's never declared himself a democrat on TV but the way he focuses his reports would you not call him one, how about Beck? Writing a couple articles I'd just call you a sell out but when it's the dominant factor in your writing then you are what you write. I'm sure there have been hundreds of people asked to do the same and didn't. You either have to have no ethics to write like that if you don't believe it or at least half way believe what you are writing. Either way to me writing multiple decades worth of racism baiting columns and thinking nothing wrong of it or trying to remove yourself from it makes you a racist. Unless you are saying that just as long as I am a writer and I get paid to I could write racist columns for a crazy white supremacist group for decades and not be called a racist. I know ESPN is not a racist organization as a whole but I couldn't think of a viable media that would allow a white guy to write anything even close to this just to sell a paper so I had to go to a extreme.

    "Acting like it's not "your fault" that there was slavery makes even less sense." - pfan66

    That might be the most racist thing I've heard (seen in this case) in years.

    You pigeonhole an entire race with that comment and have the nerve to call others racist? By your ridiculous logic above:

    Every German is a nazi. (or is responsible for Nazism)

    Every Spaniard kills Aztecs and Mayans.(or is responsible for their extinction)

    Every Tutsi massacres Hutus. (or is culpable for their genocide)

    Every Cambodian is Khmer Rouge. 

    Every Russian bears the responsibility for the Night of the Long Knives.

    Every Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor or conducted the Bataan Death March.

    Every race bears scars of wrongdoing in their past. Every single one. Period. That those wrongs are righted; or at the very least recognized in a manner of moving toward such redemption is all that can be asked of any race. Holding those future generations responsible in perpetuity only prolongs those scars and creates yet more hurt and misunderstanding.

    I'm truly sorry you allow generational guilt to cloud what should be a coming together rather than keeping apart because of your embarrassment of something your ancestors may or may not have even participated in.

    You make it seem like it happened just once in the history of the world. African slaves were taken by many races, sold by those many races, & bought by many races. If you look in to the history of African slavery, most of the world was involved, & that includes African countries run by black Africans.The King of Nigeria was horrified that slavery was abolished by one of the countries he sold slaves to, cutting off a major source of income. It's very convenient to act like it's all the fault of one race, in one country, at one time, then rely on that to blame every short coming of a race while not accepting blame for their own actions. Racism exists & will all ways exist. Only a moron would think otherwise, but it's a two way street. The imbeciles that believe legislation will remove human nature are the same people who think passing a bill that requires humans to not breath would also work.

    Warren Moon

    But, he is the ONLY one.

    I often wonder when hearing people say "Black Pride" how I would be received if I simply stated "White Pride". I'm fairly certain I'd immediately be labeled a racist, KKK member, ignorant, thoughtless...so, really, as a white person, I have to quantify it by saying I have pride in my Portuguese/Irish or Italian roots, I can't simply be proud of my "White" heritage. Not that I care either way, but it's quite hypocritical. I don't hear people quantifying their chants of "Black Pride" with mention of a tribe they have descended from, or a region, or part of Africa...it's ok to simply be proud of being "Black", but not "White".

I'm fairly certain I'd immediately be labeled a racist, KKK member, ignorant, thoughtless...so, really, as a white person, I have to quantify it by saying I have pride in my Portuguese/Irish or Italian roots, I can't simply be proud of my "White" heritage. Not that I care either way, but it's quite hypocritical. I don't hear people quantifying their chants of "Black Pride" with mention of a tribe they have descended from, or a region, or part of Africa...it's ok to simply be proud of being "Black", but not "White".

    Well, in fairness to those descended from slaves -- as opposed to actual African immigrants -- they've been effectively robbed of that heritage and couldn't be blamed for not being able to trace their ancestry any further than its roots in . . .  say . . . South Carolina.
