LOS ANGELES, CA – Good question: Is a white person beating a minority in competitive sports racist?
Of course not, but the left is going there after a black former NBA player was knocked out cold in a recent boxing match by a white man who is generally known for being annoying online.
Jemele Hill asked Jake Paul point blank in an interview if he felt that beating his opponent was “racist.” Yes, winning a boxing match is now considered “racist,” according to Hill.
Jemele Hill, a sports journalist who writes for The Atlantic, spent 12 years with ESPN. She has made some of the most audacious and mind-boggling statements about race and prejudices that have ever been recorded.
It’s only natural that she “went there” this week when interviewing Jake Paul, a YouTube “star” who is regarded for being annoying, who participated in a boxing match with former NBA star Nate Robinson. Robinson was a point guard for the New York Knicks at the end of his basketball career that spanned from 2005–2018.
Jake Paul knocked Nate Robinson out in a devastating manner, showing surprising boxing talent for a YouTube guy, embarrassing Robinson in his second professional fight.
There are several questions that immediately come to mind:
Is Jemele Hill advocating for segregated sports or advocating for deeper racism?
Is a white person beating a minority in competitive sports racist?
Should Jake Paul have “thrown” the fight because of white privilege?
Was Nate Robinson either serious or prepared?
Is Jake Paul a serious fighter?
Jake Paul must think he’s serious. After the fight, Paul challenged UFC champ Conor McGregor to a match and also signed up to fight boxing legend Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout. That means Mayweather agreed.
Brian DeRocha commented:
“It’s funny how microphones find their way into the hands of people who have no grasp of ‘sport.’ Their ethno-political agendas have stolen their minds. Racists.”
Cari Champion joined Jemele Hill and Jake Paul in the interview, and appeared to play “devil’s advocate” towards Hill and her ridiculously obnoxious line of questioning.
During the exchange between Jemele Hill and Jake Paul on her show, it’s initially hard to know if she’s being serious, but after the fog clears, it appears that she is:
“Hill: ‘Considering where we are right now in our racial conversation in America, was what you did to Nate Robinson racist?’
“Champion: ‘That is the question of the week.’
“Paul: ‘Nah, stop playin’ with me, come on.’
“Hill: ‘Listen, it’s a sensitive time right now, we just had to witness a white man knock out a black man smooth out in front of all of America, and that’s why I asked that.’
“Paul: ‘Stop playing with me, come on.’
“Hill: ‘It’s a sensitive time right now. We just had to witness a white man just knock a black man smooth out in front of all of America, so that’s why I asked that.’”
Paul attempted to take the interview in a more serious direction and explained how much preparation went into his fight. The young man also paid respect to his opponent.
“Paul: ‘No, stop asking me that. I said no. It’s a s—ty question. It’s a sport.’
“Champion: ‘Why is it a s—ty question? Why is it a s—ty question?’
“Paul: ‘How does this have anything to do with race? It doesn’t.’
“Champion: ‘It’s a fine question. We’ve got to wake you up.’”
Nick Webb commented:
“Wow… If you would have told me that an interview done between Cari, Jemele and Jake Paul would result in Jake Paul being the smartest person in the conversation, I would’ve laughed at you. The joke is on me apparently. What an idiotic question.”
Wow… If you would have told me that an interview done between Cari, Jemele and Jake Paul would result in Jake Paul being the smartest person in the conversation, I would've laughed at you. The joke is on me apparently. What an idiotic question.
Whether Hill and Champion were joking is irrelevant, especially considering Hill’s past and her propensity for sparking racial and political dramas online — for example, calling President Donald Trump a “white supremacist” and those who voted for him “racist.”
Hill later was astounded that people didn’t realize she was joking. Jemele Hill “joking” about racism when she’s called millions of people racists without basis or reason, simply isn’t allowed. She doesn’t deserve a pass on this.
Paul won a bout with a seasoned athlete. Rather than be allowed to celebrate that, he and his victory were connected to racism, which is unfortunate.
Second grade homework assignment tells students: Joe Biden is your President, not Donald Trump
SAN ANTONIO, TX – Talk about revisionist history, a second-grade class assignment in San Antonio, Texas, wanted to make sure that they understood that current Democratic Presidential candidate is their President, disregarding that President Donald Trump, regardless of the results of the election, is currently the President.
Despite the fact that he has not been in office previously and that Presidential election results have not been certified, a second-grade teacher took it upon herself to declare that Biden was the new President.
In the assignment, the teacher asked students to name the current President of the United States. Regardless of where the election falls, the current President is Donald Trump. Whether that changes next month or not, the fact remains the same, Donald Trump is the current President of our country.
And yet, these young children were given only one choice when it came to naming their current President. They could only choose Joe Biden. Dismayed radio personality, Kenny Webster, tweeted:
“A Texas public school (Pierce Elementary in Southside ISD, San Antonio) asked 2nd grade students to complete a homework assignment that suggests that Joe Biden, not Donald Trump, is the name of America’s President. This is 100% false – Trump is president.”
The incident caused a stir on the KPRC AM 950 Radio show of Walton and Johnson. The clearly false narrative was reported from a parent to the show.
A parent who saw the worksheet, which not only did not list President Trump as an option, but there was also no mention of Mike Pence as the current Vice-President, reported the issue to Texas State Representative, Briscoe Cain, a Republican. Cain said:
“This kind of assignment has no place in the classroom. There’s no way this was an accident or some oversight. It’s an overt act of brainwashing children.”
While, some people would not be surprised that Democratic leaders want to quickly forget about President Trump and Vice-President Pence, teaching children that they are not our current leadership is wrong. It is a blatant attempt to rewrite history.
Whether or not Biden wins the election, there is no disputing that President Trump is, in fact, our current President.
PA teacher fired after saying she’d rather vote for a potato than Biden now suing school district
December 9, 2020
MONROEVILLE, PA – So much for freedom of speech!
A Pennsylvania elementary school principal is out of job, and she says it is because she posted right-leaning memes and commentary on her private social media pages.
The Daily Wire reports that, in one post, former principal Amy Sacks said she would rather vote for a potato than Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden. Sacks reportedly wrote:
“This is a potato. If this potato was running against Joe Biden, I’d vote for the potato.”
Her pro-spud/anti-democrat post, was apparently enough to cost Sacks her position at Evergreen Elementary in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, despite decades of experience as an educator.
Sacks, who had been a teacher for twenty years prior to becoming principal, says the Perkiomen Valley School District and Superintendent Barbara Russell fired her in July.
On Thanksgiving, a Facebook page called “No Left Turn in Education” shared a statement penned by Sacks. It reads:
Many of you know that I am no longer the Principal of Evergreen Elementary at this time. However, the circumstances surrounding this situation have been kept quiet until now.
I am reaching out to you today to share with you that as Principal of Evergreen Elementary School I was terminated because I expressed right of center political views — PRIVATELY.”
It goes on to say that she has filed a lawsuit against the school district in an attempt to “save her job.” Sacks wrote that she wants to also show people that they are not alone in their personal battles against the “erosion of our constitutional rights in America.”
“This cancel culture within the public school system has to stop.
I was Principal of one of the best performing elementary schools in Pennsylvania and still fell victim to being cancelled out by liberal bureaucrats who don’t believe in diversity of thought, speech, opinion, or political affiliation.”
In keeping with the belief that she had the constitutional right to freedom of speech, the Daily Mail reported that some of Sacks’ other Facebook posts read:
–“Looking for some clarity. Is Corona Season over and we are on to Riot Season? I just need to know if I need a mask or a rifle.”
-“Due to Covid, we’re gonna need people to riot from home and destroy your own s***.”
-“If you think the coronavirus panic in an election year right after 3 failed coup attempts against Trump is a coincidence? You might be as dumb as a rock!”
– “If you can’t carry, buy some wasp and hornet spray, keep it beside your seat in your vehicle. It sprays 20-30ft stream.”
Another reportedly included a photo of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer with the caption “The virus,” and below it was a picture of people voting, captioned, “The cure.”
Now, Sacks is seeking $500,000 in monetary damages for the emotional turmoil she has experienced in the last five months.
The civil suit names more than a dozen defendants, including the school district and its board of directors.
Court documents say, on top of firing Sacks for her Facebook posts, the Superintendent also accused her of being racist. The lawsuit says:
“Amy was told by Russell that her private Facebook posts had offended a parent who had complained to the District.
Instead of properly telling the parent that Amy was permitted to post what she wanted on her private account, the District terminated Amy from the principal position without warning.
Amy was told by Russell that she was being terminated because these posts were offensive, unacceptable, and unprofessional. Russell alluded that she believed that Amy was racist and could be fired on that basis.”
