Make sure you include her APOLOGY, CelticsElite.
ESPNís Jemele Hill wrote this past Saturday that, "rooting for the Celtics is like saying Hitler was a victim. Itís like hoping Gorbachev would get to the blinking red button before Reagan."
Jemele Hill's personal apology:
"I deeply regret the comment I made in a column Saturday. In expressing my passion for the NBA and my hometown of Detroit I showed very poor judgment in the words that I used. I pride myself on an understanding of, and appreciation for, diversity - and there is no excuse for the appalling lack of sensitivity in my comments. It in no way reflects the person I am. I apologize to all of my readers and I thank them for holding me accountable. This has been an important lesson for me and illustrates that, like many people, I still have a lot of growing and learning to do."
If you REALLY care to read down further in that article, OP - you'd see CLEARLY why she made this comment. Does NOT make it right, but it echoes why MANY, MANY of my classmates while in high school hated BOS and wondered quite often why "I" loved BOS (they were African American, as I am).
Many of them loved The Lakers and Magic, Kareem...
I guess you can call me the odd ball - especially being that this was the 80s....Reagan in office, etc, etc...
LOOK - I'm not trying to send this thread off the rails but some folks here need to let stuff GO. She apologized, LOL.
So if Trump apologizes for his antics after his presidency ends, youíll be cool with him? Bygones will be bygones? Cuz Jemele Hill has been up to these types of antics for years.
I really don't know the best way to respond to this but I'll try -
As a man of God I forgive (and PRAY for) Pres. Trump continuously. I "HAVE" to - because if I don't that is blocking my OWN testimony.
To be honest I took the same POV towards him as Pres. Barack Obama did - I wished him the BEST and hope he SUCCEEDS.
That is STILL my hope for Pres. Trump.
Do I trust him? No, I don't. Is that fair? Well, that is quite the loaded question to myself. But I don't.
The man has NOT had a completely fair way in how the media has dealt him BUT much of this is on HIM, IMO.....
I won't go into specifics about what he has said / done, etc, etc...that has already been hashed and rehashed on here forever.
I hope this answers your question, because in "MY" point of view I did answer it. This answer may NOT be palatable to YOU (or others on here) but it is MY answer.
To add further -
From my observations of Pres. Trump's time in office? I really believe he DOES think he's succeeding, so that's that.
Me? I don't believe he is.
"My" POV as to whether he is succeeding or not is obviously QUITE DIFFERENT than his.
