Al Sharpton approved: LeBron James says NFL team owners have slave mentality

Birds of a feather…

LeBron being a good progressive and keeping the hate and divide alive and well…

From Yahoo: LeBron James, who has consistently used his platform as one of the most famous men in America to discuss social issues, has said that NFL owners have a “slave mentality”.

The Los Angeles Lakers star made the comments on Friday’s broadcast of his HBO discussion show, The Shop. “In the NFL they got a bunch of old white men owning teams and they got that slave mentality,” James said. “And it’s like, ‘This is my team. You do what the f*ck I tell y’all to do. Or we get rid of y’all.’

James’s comments come after a stormy few seasons in the NFL. Two players, Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid, have filed grievances against the league and its teams’ owners alleging they colluded to keep them out of football due to their stance on social issues. Both men knelt during the national anthem to highlight racial injustice in the United States. Although Reid has now found a team, the Carolina Panthers, this week he said he had been randomly drug tested by the league six times in 11 weeks. Yahoo Sports calculated the chances of that happening were 0.17%.

The NBA, on the other hand, has been praised for being much more progressive on social issues. “The difference between the NBA and the NFL, the NBA is what we believe he [a player] can be. The potential,” James said. “In the NFL, it’s like what can you do for me this Sunday, or this Monday or this Thursday, and if you ain’t it, we moving on.”

James highlighted the work of the NBA’s commissioner, Adam Silver, in making the league a welcoming environment for players. “I’m so appreciative in our league of our commissioner,” James said. “He doesn’t mind us having … a real feeling and to be able to express that. It doesn’t even matter if Adam agrees with what we are saying, he at least wants to hear us out. As long as we are doing it in a very educational, nonviolent way, then he’s absolutely OK with it.”

James has been quick to speak up about social issues in the past. He is a long-time critic of the US president, Donald Trump. In an interview with the web series Uninterrupted in January, James said of Trump: “The number one job in America … is someone who doesn’t understand the people, and really don’t give a f*ck about the people.”

In February, James explained why he was critical of the president: “While we cannot change what comes out of that man’s mouth, we can continue to alert the people that watch us, that listen to us, that this is not the way.”

The very fact that LeBron James said that proves that NFL players aren’t slaves. Then there’s his net worth of $440 million. Some slave!

Where I work I do what my bosses and company tell me. They own the business and run my department so I do what they tell me. They pay my wages so they own me for my working hours. I have worked places where I disagreed with theit policy so terminated my employment with them when I found something more suited to my liking. I spent 30 years in 3 different divisions of the same employer and draw a good pension from it. The 1st employer after I retired from 30 years was less than good. We parted ways and… Read more »

If that’s how he feels I invite him to leave his plantation.

Not for decades have these spoiled, so called professional black atheists, been able to mentality/emotionally leave the plantation. They are mentally shackled to themselves. It’s a made up crutch provided by the left.

And oh, lebron, you should take a few basketball tips from me. After all I don’t play basketball, but I can pretend to know what I’m talking about when I tell you how to play.

If al sharpton approved it then you know it has some money tied to it some way or another he never gives approvals unless his pockets get filled. And lebrons james your plantation owners have made you one of the richest guys in sports so you would bite the hand that feeds you, he can play ball but his IQ is like the ball a big Zero.
Keeping their names in the lime light any way they can since no one wants to hear what they have to say anymore.

Only in America can you find a guy who makes millions bouncing an inflated rubber ball being endorsed by by a 5th rate copy of Stalin, who calls himself a reverend. Most of history required they both be locked away quietly behind tall brick walls. Instead, we let them parade around like Socrates reborn.

That’s the truth! Why I hang on every breath ever uttered by a ball fetcher. When I need spiritual guidance I don’t go to someone with years of training and carefully directed prayer, no, I find a mail-order “reverend”. They all have “doctorates” don’t ya’ know.

I worked with one once that was a “Doctor of Divinity”. We traced the address on his certificate to a vacant lot in Fresno. In this country it isn’t illegal for “reverends” to steal. Without the title they’d be convicts.

You can’t make this stuff up about the boot-licking plantation mindset of James when he says, “I’m so appreciative in our league of our commissioner. . . .He doesn’t mind us having … a real feeling . . .” It sounds more like the NAACP a century ago than some sort of emancipation. Back then Marcus Garvey went to check out his dream and instead found an office without one black but filled with Jews.

Yeah. He should join one of the “black” teams. I’m sure they pay real good. None of that jive-ass honkey shit there. Nosiree. When he done bouncing’ the ball here he can learn to cook ribs. I think its very impressive how he’s true to his “roots”. It don’t matter how much money YT throws at him for bouncing a ball. Nope. He got him a “higher purpose”. They expect him to show up for the games and do what they tell him. Wha’s up wit dat? I think he ought to bunch up all his “dignity” and go back… Read more »

Interesting is that many of the NFL & NBA Plantation owners are jews, just like the original Plantation owners and the slave traders who originally brought them over.

Poor little LeBron. If the NFL franchise owners are slave drivers, I can just how much more loathsome and evil the NBA franchise owners must be. After all, LeBron is only the second highest–paid sports player in the word. How sad it must be for poor LeBron not to be number one. Evil slave masters! How dare they! After all, his take from the 15 seasons 0f his career has only brought him $254 million. And what about the insulting $154 million, four-year contract this downtrodden slave now has to work under? It’s more humiliating than slopping hogs. But the… Read more »

‘Slave mentality’ my left ____.

They are paying their employees millions to play a game.

Were it not for that, most of these ingrate goobers would be sorting shoe laces for a living.

The Sharptongue is again spewing the vipers’s venom, and poor LeBron can’t seem to unlock the shackles off his ”big foot” and accept he no longer is a slave of the white man but continues to be his own slave -the mentality of slavery is inherited from an ancestry when long ago in Africa it was the negro that sold their kin to the English. BLACK PEOLE, read this, you are no longer slaves, we are entering 2019 and you have been FREE for a long time, you are no longer held in captivity.

The first NBA and NFL players were all white, so the “slave mentality” doesn’t hold water. It was decades before black players became the majority. If you don’t know history, you don’t know crap.

Why in Gods name do atheletes who have had their asses kissed since they were 9 or 10 years old solely because they had really good hand/eye coordination who hit the big time all think they deserve a platform to say anything? Exactly how many or their peeps do they personally help out? Exactly how many communities who try to perpetuate yet another black savior from their communities solely on the kids athletic abilities really receive anything from their savior of the day? Hey Lebron, you wanna do something really special? Give 3 years of your salary free and clear… Read more »

Pretty pathetic when the apex of a culture is played out on a basketball court. I briefly saw how Steph Curry and some older players discussed how they were gods on ESPN. So sad when black youths’ highest aspirations are to be “like Mike” or LeBron or Steph. Why would these guys ever be held up as role models? Get rid of the race baiting and what else do they have to talk about? Oh, yeah, sports.
