Tariq Nasheed is not pleased that Jemele Hill used her ESPN platform to trash Black men. He is also at odds with #MeToo founder Tarana Burke for saying Black men are predators.
So when the former ESPN anchor and #MeToo activist dissed Tariq in her podcast, Tariq went IN on Twitter and Instagram.
"Y'all wanna come at me saying there's a movement against Black men?" said Burke. "Let's talk about reality; you're repeating something that Tariq said."
In his response, Tariq pointed out that Burke confirmed her family is non-ADOS from the Caribbean.
"Tarana Burke was on Jemele Hill's podcast & finally admitted that she is non-Ados, and her parents are Caribbean. This explains all of her vitriol toward Foundational Black Americans. Tarana mentions me by name, & Jemele Hill takes a lil’ jab at me in this clip#IseeYou".
"Her Caribbean upbringing [a] has a lot to do with her view of men. Our cultural experiences are not the same," tweeted one user.
"And that's why Becky stole her movement," wrote another user.
Tariq didn't appreciate Burke dropping his name - and neither did his followers, who dug up an old tweet in which Burke disparaged Black men for their "predatory behavior."
"Why is it MY job to go after white men?" she tweeted.

Plus who could have a serious conversation with someone who asks "why is it my job to go after white men?" pic.twitter.com/cl823NDFgC

Especially when you find out that she had no problem coaching and showing compassion to the white men who were on Leaving Neverland; and that despite all the blathering about her concerns being for only Black women and Black girls.

Not to mention she did an interview and photoshoot for Playboy. Same magazine where Hefner exploited many young girls.

Wasn’t Jemele Hill the one who got railroaded by ESPN after she spent years attacking black men and calling them the “white people” of the black race? Notice NONE of her white female colleagues came to her defense when she was attacked, Black MEN did but she still attacks us. pic.twitter.com/5Jff9MfH1X

She also had a black man stand up & defend, when he could have kept his mouth shut, & kept his job. She also complained that he was more interested in playing Madden than going out w/ her.

Not only is she NOT ADOS, but her father was also engaged in criminal activity which created a stigma on ADOS and black culture.
