Go ahead and sit down. I don’t need you passing out while listening to Jemele Hill and Cari Champion ask Jake Paul if it was racist of him to knock out Nate Robinson during a boxing match on the Roy Jones Jr.-Mike Tyson undercard.
“Jake, considering where we are right now in our racial conversation in America, was what you did to Nate Robinson racist?” Hill asks Paul while smiling and chuckling.
What? Are we all being trolled here by Jemele and Cari? Yes, we are.
“We trolled the hell out of Jake,” Jemele announced in a December 3 tweet featuring the video.
Uh, OK. Great one, ladies. You two really nailed this one. Let’s be honest here, these two wanted to race bait Jake Paul. They wanted him to go nuts, tell them to f–k off and cut the interview short. They wanted to goad him into creating a scene so then they could use it as bait for their viewers — all 225 of them. Jemele and Cari can say this was a LOLOLOL it’s just a troll job moment, but we aren’t dumb.
It doesn’t take a genius to see the end goal here.
If you need further evidence of the game Hill and Champion are playing, go back to what Jason Whitlock wrote for OutKick back in July. Then go back and watch the Jake Paul interview again. They’ve been playing this game a long time, and Paul managed not to get trapped in it.
