In Response to Re: Jamele Hill = Racist
In Response to Re: Jamele Hill = Racist : I hear ya. But here's the kicker - she gets paid to do what she does because it makes money for her and her employer. That doesn't make her a racist because she uses the same template and theme for her articles. Why does Victoria Secret produce the same kind of articles of clothing and produces the same type of commercials using beautiful women? Because sex sells their product. If they change their recipe and start producing undergarments that look like kitchen bags....I don't think they would be as successful.

Ironic you defend her, yet the QBs that coaches use in the NFL, yellow, blue, white or black are intended to make the the owner money by winning.
If they don't; win, it has no bearing on what color the skin is, it's because they didn't win.
And, didn't you say you'd be interested to know what people's race is who responded in this thread?
You seem to imply that only whites are racist and blacks could not be.
It baffles me that you defend here for using race, a topic that is at the center of the struggles of minorites, including blacks, yet that is what she is really complaining about when she points about blacks not getting a fair shake as a QB, compared to whites.
The hypocrisy is incredible. Absolutely incredible.
So I am black, for example, realize I hadn't been represented by the Constitution, the government, etc, and now I am looking at the very reason why I wasn't, as to why black QBs don';t get a fair shake?
You don't see the hypocrisy in a black person making this claim?
It's not like they are on a different pay scale. Does Willie Mays get less respect because he's black? I don't think so. Not by baseball fans.
I already used the Jordan reference. It's about the merit, not the skin color.
If Malcolm X or David Farrakhan could throw 40 TDs per year, he'd be in the NFL doing it. They'd be black and be racist, but they'd still be a great QB.
If they failed or weren't that good, they;d be criticized like Ryan Leaf was, or Jore Harrington, or David Carr, or.....You get the point.
Maybe these particular QBs never advanced to the Manning or Brady stage for a reason other than playing the victim role?
Here's the real kicker and someone mentioned it above:
This kind of junk apparently sells. It does. Just like sex scandals, reality tv, claims of cheating, and everything else.
It doesn't mean I respect the people that sell off their integrity to sell it.
Your claim is she is not a racist and is forced to write these columns? I am not buying that spin job deluxe by you.
She writes this all the time. This is her. She also is constantly using that angle on the show she shows up on during the day on ESPN. Skip Bayless, etc.
Howard Bryant does the same thing. He acts like the only place on earth where he ran into racist situations was in Boston or Plymouth, MA.
So old. So very old.
Also, calling Jamele HIll successful as a race baiting columnist is like saying David Duke sold a lot of strong extremist white supremacy material to racist whites.
Congratulations! What a career! Mucho respect! Pulitzer prize coming up!
