Jason Whitlock: Angel Reese Needs Guidance and Accountability

placeholder image
Jason Whitlock: "Caitlin Clark is the exact same person in victory and in loss. Last year when Clark lost the national title game and Angel Reese went to taunting her, Caitlin Clark ignored it all, took the high road, told the media what they wanted to hear, and did everything she could to protect Angel Reese and protect herself. She knew if she told the truth, she’d get the kind of blow-back that she didn’t want to deal with. But when Caitlin Clark lost last year, she lost with class. When she won this year, she won with class. That’s because Caitlin Clark has parents that are discipling her. I’m not saying Angel Reese doesn’t have parents but are they discipling her properly? Is anybody correcting her? Is anybody criticizing her?
We’ve created these bubbles for Black athletes, Black celebrities, and Black personalities where ‘OH, MY GOD, YOU CAN’T CRITICIZE THEM! YOU’RE HATING! YOU’RE RACIST!’... And so they don’t grow, they don’t evolve, they stay the same person. ‘I AM WHO I AM!' -- 'I’m going to continue to put out all this hot air and all this energy that is going to draw heat and draw criticism because that’s just who I am!’... Then when you lose, you go to crying and you draw more attention to yourself. Angel Reese LOVES attention. You lost the game and now I'm going to go out and share with the media all the terrible things that have happened to me. Saturday, when you won, at the post-game press conference did you cry and tell everybody how awful things were? Or were you in everybody’s face, and ‘EVERYBODY WANTS TO BEAT LSU!’... Were you arrogant and putting out that in-your-face energy that will get people in your face?
Angel Reese has to change. If you’re going to open up these social media accounts, have three million Instagram followers, a half million Twitter followers, and you’re going to put yourself out there personally, don’t be shocked when people start judging your personal life. When Jill Biden stupidly says 'Yeah, I might invite both teams!' [to the White House] and you throw a little tantrum and start taking shots at a political figure, don't be shocked when people take shots back. If you just want to 'stick to the court', then stick to the court.
Let me blow your mind here... Not every college basketball player is active on social media. Unbelievable! That’s a choice that is being made. Do these athletes learn anything? Do they take anything away from what they're taught in athletics? Angel Reese can control what SHE does. If she doesn't want people talking about her sexuality, then don't make your sexuality the point of your Instagram page."

Watch Jason Whitlock of Blaze TV’s Fearless discuss Angel Reese’s emotional post-game press conference following LSU’s season-ending Elite Eight loss to Caitlin Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes, saying Reese has no one to blame but herself for her personal demons and wonders if she has the proper guidance in her life to navigate through this turmoil she's created.

Check out the segment above as Whitlock explains why the media is partially to blame for Reese’s emotional plight, saying they enabled and promoted her self-destructive actions by setting up a protective bubble around Black athletes that makes it sacrilegious to ever criticize them, and thus disallowing athletes like Reese to ever ‘evolve’.
