Jemele Hill talked to Michael David Smith at FanHouse about her suspension for the now infamous "Hitler" comment.
I'm on record as saying this incident is over…. but I wanted to pass this along for those of you who are interested. One thing I want to address here is this:
You posted something on your personal blog saying you got e-mails calling you the N-word. How many such e-mails did you get?
A lot. But I hesitate to get into that because I'm not a victim and I don't want it to come off like I'm saying, 'Oh, look what happened to me.' These are the consequences of my action. It doesn't give anybody the right to call me that, and this is the nastiest batch of mail I've received, ever, in my 11-year career. But I don't want that to be the focus
I'm hoping… HOPING… that none of you sent that sort of email to her. If you did… I would invite you to never come back. That beyond worse than what she wrote. What she wrote was dumb. What people said in those emails was disgusting and hateful. It kills me to read things like that.
I just don't get people sometimes.
