Trump and his racist supporters just got a Black woman news anchor suspended from ESPN.
Last week, ESPN suspended Jemele Hill, the co-anchor of its primetime flagship SportsCenter show. Its reason? Hill supported anti-racism protests by NFL players. Trump didn't like it and has been bullying her on Twitter. The White House also called for her to be fired weeks ago.
By suspending Hill, ESPN is basically taking orders from Trump to silence anti-racist protests. If we stand by, other networks will be cowed into ignoring freedom of speech and freedom of the press, and will stop speaking out for what's right. But ESPN is already enduring a sharp backlash, and our outrage can reverse this decision. Can you sign the petition to ESPN demanding it reinstate Hill and fire the executive who suspended her?
