Friday 09/06/19 – Kevin Miller Show
Kevin broadcasts his show live from Independence Indoor Shooting in Meridian. Kevin Miller looks at the controversial former ESPN host Jamele Hill's latest comments. Hill responds to racist, segregationist claims Former ESPN host Jemele Hill has been taking heat on social media since suggesting in an article that black athletes should make an exodus from predominantly white schools. Hill contends that power conference schools have made bank off the "exertions of (uncompensated) black athletes." She says historically black colleges and universities pay the price, despite producing 80% of black judges, 50% of black lawyers and doctors, 40% of black engineers, and 40% of black congressmen and women. The now staff writer for The Atlantic is firing back at critics, tweeting in part, "encouraging black people to rebuild their communities is literally the opposite of racism, but OK." Kevin Miller asks the following questions: Do you think her comments are racist and segregationist as some claim? Is this simply an issue of HBCU's putting more emphasis on academics than athletics? If you want to play DI basketball where do you go? If you want to be a doctor, lawyer, engineer, where do you go?
