It wasn’t the tweets calling the president a white supremecist, or the support for athletes who disrespect the American Flag and National Anthem; it was calling for a boycott of the NFL that finally got ESPN SportsCenter anchor Jemele Hill suspended – albeit for only two weeks.

After attempting to backtrack – and point out how she thought it was unfair for teams like the Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys to make their players stand for the anthem – she was still given the equivalent of a slap on the wrist by ESPN, the network who has become known more for liberal politics than for the sports that it covers.

The SportsCenter show that she co-anchored repeatedly went off the topic of sports coverage and delved into divisive racial politics – angering many viewers. She was also a big supporter of the protests which originated with Colin Kaepernick protesting the fallaciously perceived police brutality against minorities, which has been proven over-and-over to be a myth.
