Trying To Keep A Sista Down

ESPN’s Page 2 writer Jemele Hill has been suspended from her post after referencing Adolf Hitler in an article about the NBA champion Boston Celtics and the Detroit Pistons.

In a recent editorial describing why she couldn’t root for the Celtics, Hill—a lifelong Pistons fan—wrote:
"Rooting for the Celtics is like saying Hitler was a victim. It's like hoping Gorbachev would get to the blinking red button before Reagan."Deserving or not, I still hate the Celtics."

Her Hitler remark received a flurry of angry comments from site readers and that portion of the editorial was taken out shortly after the column was published, but the damage had already been done.

--Even tho it obviously wasn't the best choice of words (and not all that clever), this is America people! If Imus and Dog Chapman are still cashing checks, then so should Jemele! Let her issue a public apology and move the hell on!
