Should ESPN fire Jemele Hill?

One thing you don't do as at ESPN is talk ill of the NFL or try to go after its money. Hill has been given plenty of chances to stop her social media assaults. If the network wants to be fair and consistent, it needs to fire her. Mike Ditka was removed from "Sunday NFL Countdown" for saying former President Barack Obama was the worst president ever. Former MLB analyst Curt Schilling was fired outright for comments he made regarding the transgender bathroom bills. Linda Cohn, one of the most respected anchors at ESPN, was suspended for saying politics is the reason ESPN is losing viewership.

Just because Hill's tweets fall on one side of the political spectrum doesn't mean she should be immune to consequences. That only establishes a double standard that would be harmful to ESPN. Her tweets could've cost the network a lot of money; a network that shares some of the same advertisers. It's only fair she is fired, just like other any other ESPN employees who have made controversial comments in the past.

Remember when speaking out against hate was actually appreciated? She did this by going against Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, and his threat of firing peacefully protesting players. This isn't anything new. Hill was promoted specifically to talk about these issues, and anyone who wants to put their head in the sand and pretend racism isn't an issue in this country is dangerous. Hill is trying to enlighten people, and shouldn't be fired for fairly calling out President Trump or Jones.

The world needs more statements like Hill's, you don't have to look too far. ESPN should not fire her.
