I'm sure those who fought for equal rights and against segregation are rolling over in their graves.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~

Former ESPN host Jemele Hill -- now a staff writer for The Atlantic -- argues in her controversial first article for the magazine that black college athletes should leave predominantly white schools.

The article, titled, "It's Time for Black Athletes to Leave White Colleges," has drawn a range of responses -- including assertions that Hill is "pro-segregation" or even "racist."

That woman is one of the biggest racists around, promoting her segregationist policies and anti-white hate. We have worked hard to overcome segregation, now only to have people calling for a return to such policies? I guess she advocates for separate but equal as held originally under Plessy v. Ferguson.

Some advice is spectacularly terrible, especially for the 98% black athletes that will never even get a whiff of a pro contract and will do a weird thing: Rely on their degree from a well respected university.

So Ms Hill wants black athletes to go to predominantly black schools, none of which are major sports schools, playing in DIV 2 and DIV 3 conferences? Okay.


At least Ms Hill doesn't try to hide her racism and ignorance.

Maybe it’s time for this ***** to leave the public square. She should be grateful these schools are giving degrees to people who don’t really deserve to be there.

So what if they did what she asks? That would leave plenty of opportunity for whites athletes and others. She’s so dumb she doesn’t get that.

I wonder if she will also encourage them to leave white owned professional basketball and football teams?

If the races are inherently equal, then after 300 years, the only reason there wold be inequality between the races, within the same country, is due to DISCRIMINATION!!!!!!!!!



Hence, the ONLY way you can resolve an inequality is VIA DISCRIMINATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


If one of your legs is broken.....you have to discriminate in favor of the broken leg for it to heal and become approximately equal with the other leg. You can't say treat both legs the same and expect the broken leg to get well.


I did not follow the link and hence have not taken the time to read the article yet. However, my first thought is that these black athletes bring in Billions (collectively) to those institutions.....while black colleges and university struggle to stay viable. Note: Any race is free to go to a HISTORICALLY black college and or University.



White people say that blacks should solve the problems of blacks......after they tell us that they never owned any slaves. Well....what the hell do you think that looks like, meaning, what do you think that would look like when blacks start helping to lift up blacks? It will LOOK LIKE DISCRIMINATION. It will be discrimination because the only way you resolve the unequal status of blacks is for someone to discriminate to favor blacks. Since whites don't want to do that.....since they never owned any slaves.....and since they don't want one red cent of their hard earned tax dollars going to help......then black people have to take the lead by discriminating to promote things black.


Any object moved from its equilibrium, by a force, will require an equal and opposite force to restore the object to equilibrium. The logic abounds. You cannot correct an imbalance by treating the imbalanced entities the same. She might be a racist.....but she might also have the solution to the problems of blacks.


Whats wrong in my logic?

The Atlantic like most dying print magazines has increasingly moved to essentially publishing troll-like articles to attract attention.

No doubt the writers rebuttal to any criticism of her racist tripe will be to say that anyone disagreeing with her is racist and hates women.
