http://msn.foxsports.com/nba/story/Jesse-Jackson-LeBron-James-Dan-Gilbert-slavery-comparison-071210


Updated Jul 12, 2010 4:26 PM ET
I could pretend Jesse Jackson speaks for such a tiny minority that his inflammatory, predictable and misguided remarks about LeBron James and Dan Gilbert are unworthy of rebuke.

But then, Iíd have to ignore the mountain of e-mails that poured into my laptop from African-American brothers and sisters making the same argument.

Jesse has a constituency, a passionate group of idiots who believe the best way to combat white-wing political bigots such as Limbaugh and Hannity is with black-wing political bigotry.

And so, in defense of LeBronís narcissistic ego explosion and Gilbertís emotional reaction to it, Jesse compared Gilbert to an 18th-century slave owner.

ďHis feelings of betrayal personify a slave master mentality,Ē Jackson said in a statement released Sunday. ď(Gilbert) sees LeBron as a runaway slave.Ē

Yes, this is an attention grab by Rev. Jackson. He heard about ESPNís impressive ratings for ďThe DecisionĒ and, like a mafia don, wants to wet his beak. Why let Jim Gray and ESPN executives have all the fun exploiting LeBronís naivete?

Thereís enough of LeBronís carcass for Jesse to feast, too. And Gilbertís childish letter to Cavaliers fans in the wake of LeBronís departure gave Jackson the opening he needed to break out his knives and forks.


ď(Gilbertís) accusations endanger LeBron,Ē Jackson wrote. ďHis jersey is being burned in effigy, and he is being projected as a betrayer by the owner. ... LeBron is not a child, nor is he bound to play on Gilbertís plantation and be demeaned.Ē

Yep, itís the card. LeBron James and his kiddie handlers screwed up, staging an image-damaging public-relations disaster, and now some African-Americans want to change the subject by changing the argument.

NBA owners and their $100-million contracts are slave owners and King James is Kunta Kinte escaping on the Underground Railroad to Miamiís Tootsieís Cabaret, where heíll make it rain.

Itís stupid. Dan Gilbertís rant was certainly immature, but it wasnít remotely racist. He sounded like a scorned lover, a guy who gave his heart to a relationship and found out on national TV that the alleged love of his life didnít care about him at all.

Gilbert vented. I give James credit for not responding.

Jackson and other African-Americans need to follow LeBronís lead. We look foolish. We look hypocritical. We come across like people who have little genuine interest in seeing racial prejudice disappear and more like people who just want it to swing in our favor.

Rather than deal with the callous and classless way James departed his home state, some of us are trying to make this about race. Itís not.

No rational person begrudges James for joining Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Pat Riley and the Miami Heat. Sports fans ó and owners ó have grown used to star players switching teams.

People were stunned and turned off by the hey-look-at-me circus James conducted on his way out of Cleveland. It was unnecessary and easy to avoid. It was cruel to all the young and old fans who supported him.

Beyond that, it was bad business. James damaged his brand. He made himself polarizing for no good reason. A man of his wealth would pay $2.5 million to avoid the kind of bad publicity that has engulfed James in the aftermath of "The Decision."

You can argue James has the right to destroy his image. Man has the right to smoke cigarettes, too. Itís still stupid. And nonsmokers have the right to point out the stupidity of smoking.

You canít defend LeBronís lapse in judgment by claiming his critics are racist. Youíre crippling James, baiting him to make more mistakes.

There was nothing honorable or smart about the way he orchestrated his exit.

From all reports, James knew months ago he was going to Miami with Wade and Bosh. His interviews were a farce. He invited white billionaires to grovel at his feet. And Jesse Jackson wants to call Gilbert a slave owner. Please.

Gilbert gave James and his entourage the keys to the franchise for seven years and tolerated all the indulgences of youth. He foolishly expected James and his posse to treat the Cavaliers with a modicum of respect.

Itís why you donít spoil kids. Theyíll take advantage and not express an ounce of appreciation.

Everyone who objectively watched the Boston-Cleveland playoffs series knows James quit on the Cavs, selling out his teammates and costing head coach Mike Brown his job.

Despite Brownís African-American heritage, Jesse Jackson doesnít care about Mike Brown. Jesseís all good with LeBronís betrayal of a black head coach because Mike Brownís name doesnít draw record TV ratings.

Weíre a nation of jock-sniffers and hypocrites. Itís not surprising so many of us fall for the crap spewed by Jesse, Rush, Al, Hannity and all the rest.

I particularly like the point about the LeBron/Mike Brown double standard. Good article, IMO, even if Jackson's an easy target.

Good column, spot on. The only reason Jackson chimed in on this is because it was an easy way to get the media to look his way. Lebron James has made an ass of himself through this entire circus and now Jesse Jackson is putting the cherry on top.

I'll never understand why Whitlock is so disliked in KC, or at least on this board. Dude is a solid writer and usually interesting, IMO. I like him.

Personally I don't like the way LeBron handled the whole thing but, if no one would have really cared it wouldn't have been covered like it was. So if they are gonna follow like little puppy dogs and cater to him then so be it and it's been like that since he was in high school. The cleveland owner is acting like a baby. LeBron was there for 7 years showed up for work everyday played hard and the orginization improved and became more valuable. Now that he doesn't want to play there anymore he treats him like this. It's business as well as a game and LeBron wants to win which is shown by his willingness to take less money. If Lebron didn't perform at a high level he would have been cut, traded, or no contract offered. It's not a race thing it's a spoiled owner pouting like a baby. I guarentee if LeBron had chosen to stay the owner wouldn't have said he quit and wouldn't of had a problem with the whole process!

I wouldn't want to interfere with Whittles' work and your appreciation of it, Mr. RJ, but Whittles has consistently manufactured completely absurd and ridiculous rationales for his articles e.g. ... the "inability" of Haley & Weis to work together ... the destructive "clash of egos" between Haley and Pioli ... Haley's "loss" of the locker room (I think he's done that one several times ... none of which were proven true and none even remotely verifiable.

However, I have to say that this sentence; We come across like people who have little genuine interest in seeing racial prejudice disappear and more like people who just want it to swing in our favor. ... is a compelling statement that is often very true and reflects an attitude and approach of which Whittles himself is often guilty.

In this case I'd allow that it helps frame his remarks against a movement leader. He's staking out supposedly neutral ground and signaling that he's offering this column from the viewpoint of an observer of race relations rather than someone who tends to come down on one side or the other. It's just a device that is intended to convince the reader that agreeing with Whitlock is really the only rational approach.

My point is that he can criticize a white man without throwing out examples of black racism, but he feels compelled to make nebulous accusations of racism against Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, and Sean Hannity when addressing racist comments made by Jesse Jackson.

What in the hell do Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, and Sean Hannity have to do with this story? Nothing. They have absolutely nothing to do with this story.

On the one hand, Whitlock says:


now some African-Americans want to change the subject by changing the argument

and

Theres a difference between being racist and prejudice. Most everyone has built in prejudices.

When it comes to punkin chuckin', the best punkin is one that still has a good stem attached. That way, you can grasp your punkin by its stem, build up momentum by whirling around a few times, then chuck that punkin quite a distance. Otherwise, if you select a punkin with no stem or a punkin with one of those real stubby stems, you are forced to grasp your punkin with both hands and sort of pitch it shot put style or heave it from between your legs like a sissy free throw. Either way, you're not going to get a lot of distance chuckin' a punkin with no stem. That's why world class punkin chuckers always use punkins with a good, solid stem.

Then, when a black kook does something too obvious to ignore, he calls them on it so that all of the white readers think that he doesn't have an axe to grind.

Whitlock made his bones by bashing whitey and then proceeded to move to Leawood, KS and live in the whitest suburb in the country. Hypocritlock does what Hypocritlock does.

Said LB has a right to do what he wants though he should have told Cleveland first and the whole TV show thing was just plain stupid.
Said Gilbert was like a woman sho just got dumped and was acting all bitter about it.
Said he likes Jesse but Jesse needs to calm down, just cool it with this ridiculous slave talk.

Umm, referring to Rush and Hannity as bigots isn't a stretch by any means. And it's a perfectly appropriate example. White people shouldn't say all black people are race card shitmongerers b/c Jesse Jackson is, just as black people shouldn't say all white people are elitist bigots just because Rush and Hannity are. I think the example was more than appropriate.

It's not like he's calling Wolf Blitzer a bigot. He's talking about two guys who have a reputation for being elitist.

I feel it speaks more of Jason's political views that any latent racism.

Reverend Jackson is an extremest liberal and is the antithesis of Glen Beck.

I saw it as sort of trying to relay the fact that while Rev Jackson is 10 shades of crazy on the liberal side, Limbaugh, Hannity, and Beck are 10 shades of crazy on the conservative side.

Mentioning this in the article was sort of a way to say, "Hey we all know Jessie Jackson is nuts, but he's not alone in being bat shit crazy."
