Been reading Isabel Wilkersonâ€™s new book, â€œCaste,â€ and if you were of the opinion that the United States wasnâ€™t nearly as bad as Nazi Germany, how wrong you are. Canâ€™t encourage you enough to read this masterpiece.

You can see below just how terribly the racist American genocidal regime has treated Jemele.
Journalist Jemele Hill is joining The Atlantic as a staff writer, The Atlanticâ€™s editor in chief Jeffrey Goldberg and editor of TheAtlantic.com Adrienne LaFrance announced today. She begins with The Atlantic next week.
Hill will be covering issues related to sports, race, politics, and culture for both the magazine and TheAtlantic.com. She will be based in Los Angeles, where The Atlantic is establishing a second California bureau after opening an office in San Francisco this summer.
â€œJemele is a wonderfully talented journalist who is famous for her acute commentary, fearless writing and encyclopedic knowledge of sports,â€ said Goldberg. â€œBut what drew us to Jemele in particular is her deep commitment to reporting. There are a million stories to be uncovered at the intersection where sports, race, money and politics meet, and Jemele is the exact right person to do this uncovering, and The Atlantic is the exact right home for this sort of journalism.â€
â€œThe Atlantic made perfect sense to me because during this period, itâ€™s critical to be aligned with people who understand this mission: Sports is a great entry point for exploring whatâ€™s happening in the wider society,â€ said Hill. â€œYou canâ€™t talk about sports without talking about race, class, gender and politics. I want to explore the complications and discomforts with a publication that has a long history of supporting this kind of work.â€
In her nearly 12-year career at ESPN, Hill rose to fame for her exceptional coverage on the air and for ESPN.com. She was a columnist, a host of â€œSportsCenter,â€ and a college football sideline reporter. Most recently, she covered the intersection of sports, culture, and race for ESPNâ€™s The Undefeated.
Hill began her journalism career at the Raleigh News & Observer before moving back to her hometown to cover sports for the Detroit Free Press, and later the Orlando Sentinel. She joined ESPN in 2006.
Frankly, instead of being employed in highly-paid, prestigious establishment positions as commentators and editorialists, I’d contend that people this delusional ought to be netted and taken away to the laughing academy where their excessively rich fantasy lives will no longer pose a danger to themselves or anybody else.
