Marc Lamont Hill about 3 weeks ago spoke at a U.N. meeting about the issues faced by Palestinians and it can be seen here, of course in our ADD society you probably forgot this happened. A days later the the man was fired from CNN for stating a very neutral and common sense political opinion based on his research “Palestinians should be free”! Guess what happened next? The rage of social media followed him, he was called antisemitic and even had protests to get him fired at Temple University where he is a tenured professor. This PISSES me off! We live in a coward society that is willing to tear anyone down for having an opinion. Where corporations will literally fire you for thinking different and preemptively avoid a crisis by throwing away anything that does not follow the status quo. I stand with MLH!
On the other end we see LeBron James on his Instagram story listening to the beautiful 21 Savage album where he repeats “We got Jewish money, everything is Kosher (on God)” where the social media backlash forced him to write a fake apology. LeBron should NOT apologize, why? Because our society is stupid and overly sensitive over language that does not matter. LeBron James has done so much for marginalized communities that it’s ridiculous to call him antisemitic or racist but guess what: The Leftist Trolls did what they do best. Fire the digital flames over ANOTHER non-issue. I fuckin hate our society. Naturally I am very liberal and would say my political opinions are central left but when I look at how modern liberals are acting I feel applauded. When a civil rights oriented black academic and superstar philanthropic athlete are the faces of antisemitism and racism I start the question how Liberal are Liberals.
LeBron, 21 and Hill should not apologize and neither will I.
