Comments:  | Leave A Comment

*2013 has come and gone and honors have been given, but if Jemele Hill had her way she would make the N-word her “Sports Person of the Year” for the year that was.

“My sports person of the year wouldn’t be a person at all but a word that is both reviled and revered,” said Hill.” In 2013, Hill noted that “sports took on the N-word,” as she citedPhiladelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper, who “was caught on video yelling it at a concert” and Miami Dolphins lineman Richie Incognito, who got caught using it “affectionately with black teammates.”
