People are accusing ESPN of racism after Jemele Hill was suspended from the network for two weeks after her second social media violation.

Hill tweeted Monday urging her followers to boycott advertisers for the Dallas Cowboys because head coach Jerry Jones told his players to stand for the National Anthem.

Hill’s first violation came when she called President Trump a “white supremacist” over his insistence that NFL players stand for the American flag and the National Anthem rather than protest by kneeling.

Shortly after her suspension was announced, race-baiting Twitter users accused ESPN of suspending her because she is black.
