    Jemele Hill is no stranger to controversy, which is usually self-inflicted. During President Donald Trump’s state of the union address, she made a joke about assassination and is now trying to backtrack.

    Brian Flood reports at FOX News:

    Ex-ESPN host Jemele Hill makes State of the Union assassination reference in now-deleted tweet

    Former ESPN host Jemele Hill deleted a tweet in which, describing what a Democratic lawmaker should say at President Trump’s State of the Union address, she jokingly referenced a phrase uttered by an assassin before Malcolm X was gunned down in 1965.

    It all started when Showtime’s Desus Nice tweeted that he would like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., to interrupt Trump’s speech by yelling, “Whose mans is this?”

    Hill, who famously called Trump a “white supremacist” in 2017 before her exit from ESPN, is now a writer for The Atlantic. She responded to Nice with her own vision fof what the freshman lawmaker should shout.

    “Nah, she gotta yell: GETCHO HAND OUT MY POCKET,” Hill tweeted.

    While not everyone picked up on Hill’s comment, some history buffs realized it was a reference to assassination.

    “That statement is a reference to what one of Malcolm X’s assassins yelled out before they killed the 1960s civil rights leader,” NewsBusters’ deputy research director Geoffrey Dickens wrote.

    As Flood mentions above, in the fall of 2017 while working at ESPN, Hill called Trump a white supremacist. The network dropped her less than a year later, but she was hired to write for The Atlantic.

    Here’s a copy of her now deleted tweet:

    Someone must have said something to Hill because she’s trying to back out of this:

    You may recall that in the spring of 2018, The Atlantic hired and then fired conservative writer Kevin Williamson over his views on abortion, after caving to a left wing mob.

    Will Jemele Hill face any consequences?

    In the sixties Affirmative Action seemed reasonable. As far as I can tell it is no longer justified. I think everyone deserves opportunity as long as they are willing to work for it. That does not mean they deserve a guaranteed outcome.

    There is a serious accountability gap where blacks are concerned today. They wanted and received opportunity, but for some reason do not believe in accountability.

      I wouldn’t say so. Institutionalized, official racism was a disgraceful idea even then.

        Originally, there was a vision of “affirmative action” that anyone could endorse.

        It essentially said, “OK, let’s look for qualified candidates for our positions that we might have eschewed before on the basis of extraneous crap, like the color of their skin”.

        Nothing whatsoever wrong there.

        It BECAME wrong when it said, “OK, let’s look for candidates based on extraneous crap like the color of their skin”.

    There is no other use for that particular phrase except to call for killing someone. None.

    Free pass for this moron, no doubt, while anyone other than one of these SJW twits would probably be looking at jail time.

    “But what does “Whose mans is this?” mean?”

    Its a way of saying a man is acting a fool and his woman needs to come and claim him.

    Truth; Ms. Hill knew EXACTLY what she was referencing when she sent the tweet and so did everyone else that got the reference. Even her justification screams she knew because in every instance she was saying / implying they or she was “killing it”.
