Your DGB for today is to let ESPN know they are fouling out on racial justice.
For a second, back in September, we thought maybe ESPN would stand by Jemele Hill and on the right side of history after she called Trump a white supremacist. What can we say? Sometimes we at DGB have a misplaced faith in humanity.
Caving under what we can only assume was the pressure of presidential tweets, the network decided to suspend Hill on October 9, citing a “second violation of our social media guidelines” after she suggested a boycott of Dallas Cowboys sponsors.
Today, you’ll let ESPN know that they need to grow a pair and stand by their talent, even if that person is, god forbid, a Black woman with an opinion.
