Jemele Hill hearkens back to her “woke” media roots with this head-scratching statement about Caitlin Clark

Americans are beginning to experience “wokeness” fatigue.

But “wokeness” thrives in corporate-controlled media.

And Caitlin Clark was on the receiving end of this attack after Jemele Hill hearkens back to her “woke” media roots.

Former ESPN host Jemele Hill jumped on the Trump Derangement Syndrome train in 2016.

Since then, her brand has been about being as obviously “woke” as possible.

She eventually left ESPN, and now she writes far-left drivel for any publication that will have her.

The Left hates Caitlin Clark

In an interview with The Los Angeles Times, Hill said that the popularity of women’s basketball superstar Caitlin Clark was due to the fact she was white and heterosexual.

The WNBA and its fanbase have long been considered to be dominated by lesbians.

Hill said, “We would all be very naive if we didn’t say race and her sexuality played a role in her popularity. While so many people are happy for Caitlin’s success — including the players; this has had such an enormous impact on the game — there is a part of it that is a little problematic because of what it says about the worth and the marketability. . .”

First, there have been all-time great white WNBA players—and heterosexual players—before, and none of them achieved Clark’s fame.

The reason why Clark became so popular was because not only did she break records in college, she did it with panache.

Nobody had ever seen a female player hit logo threes ten feet behind the three-point line like NBA superstar Steph Curry.

The majority of star players in the NBA are black, and that did not stop the game from becoming a global phenomenon.

Clark’s success is “problematic”

The fact that Hill would call Clark’s fame “problematic” speaks to the problem with the Left.

They do not care about outcomes.

They want their “woke” worldview enforced no matter what.

The Left have been calling for the WNBA to get more attention.

Well, here it is, but the WNBA isn’t getting noticed the “right” way, so it’s “problematic.”

Sunny Hostin of The View echoed Hill’s ridiculous statement.

She said, “I do think that there is a thing called pretty privilege. There is a thing called white privilege. There is a thing called tall privilege, and we have to acknowledge that, and so part of it is about race, because if you think about the Brittney Griners of the world, why did she have to go to play in Russia? Because they wouldn’t pay her.”

Tons of WNBA players go overseas to supplement their income because the league has not been profitable.

Clark represents the league’s one chance to actually grow, and leftists are killing it.

Hill continued, “It’s not jealousy. It’s just the fact that in our society, black women are often erased from the picture. . .While Caitlin Clark’s success should be widely celebrated, there are various points where we have seen dynamic phenoms and how they have been able to popularize the game. It’s just that, for whatever reason, could be race, could be gender, could be a myriad of factors, that same marketing muscle that seems very intentional about making sure that Caitlin Clark is a superstar was missing for them.”

Clark’s record-setting play and back-to-back NCAA championship game appearances were the factors.

Hill added, “Coke and Pepsi and all these other brands didn’t come running for Cheryl Miller. So I think it’s okay to have multiple conversations at once. There’s plenty of room to highlight and celebrate Caitlin Clark’s popularity while also discussing ways in which to not erase black women from a league that they have built and continue to build.”

That is a preposterous argument.

Cheryl Miller was a women’s basketball star in the 1980s, well before the WNBA even existed.

If the WNBA is not careful, it could slay the goose that laid the golden egg.
