Jesse Jackson Says Lebron Isn’t A Slave + Tiger Woods Aint The Daddy!

PUSH founder Jesse Jackson is pushing for the freedom of Lebron James and all other overpaid athletes being sorely mistreated by the owners of their professional teams, like Cleveland Cavalier’s owner Dan Gilbert. Jackson even called Gilbert a slave master and let him know that Lebron is not a slave.
 
More on that and Tiger Woods trying to drop a kid when you read on…
 

 

Jesse Jackson made a statement that took on Cav’s owner Dan Gilbert and his open letter about Lebron James' decision to move to the Miami Heat.
Jackson speaks out and says:
He speaks as an owner of LeBron and not the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers. His feelings of betrayal personify a slave master mentality. He sees LeBron as a runaway slave.
LeBron is not a child, nor is he bound to play on Gilbert’s plantation and be demeaned. He has  been a model citizen and has inspired the children of Akron, Cleveland, the State of Ohio and the United States.
You better just step up on your soapbox Jessie. But I’m sure Lebron will be just fine with his Miami Heat check and new place of residence. I ain’t mad at you Bron Bron.

In more sports-like news, Tiger Woods has had enough of his porn star mistress and her paternity claims.
Devon James, one of Tiger’s many mistresses, filed papers against Tiger back in June saying that he was the father of her 9-year-old son. DNA tests proved that someone else is the daddy so Tiger and his lawyers have drawn up legal documents declaring the case should be squashed. 
Makes sense to me Tiger…if you aint the daddy, you aint the daddy.

WTF part of FREE AGENT does

WTF part of FREE AGENT does Dan Gilbert not get?? I mean reallly! After 7 years he is legally free to talk to and sign with whomever he damn well pleases! LeBron doesn't owe Dan Gilbert or anyone anything more! He fulfilled his contractual obligation, and was a big boost to the economy of the City of Cleveland! Damn, he cant save the whole state of Ohio!! They shouldn't have put all their hopes, dreams and economy in the hands of one basketball player!! That is bad business and just plain stupid! Live your life LeBron and make your own decisions as you are doing! In the end none of these people really care about you. If he had gotten hurt and couldn't play ball anymore they would have swept his ass outta that arena like last night's trash! This shit is ALL BUSINESS, it's NEVER PERSONAL!!

I don't usually agree with

I don't usually agree with Jesse Jackson, but he's so right this time. I hate that it was him who brought the comparison to light though. He loses credibility as soon as he opens his mouth now, sad to say. But Dan Gilbert has totally lost it. As soon as I read that letter, the image of a runaway slave came to mind. Lebron doesn't OWE the Cavs, Ohio, or Dan Gilbert a damn thing. His loyalty is to his FAMILY not an organization. He can go wherever he sees fit. Dan Gilbert does not own him...

I agree with what Jesse is

I agree with what Jesse is trying to say, though he blew it out of proportion with the slave comparison. That Dan Gilbert letter was the most unprofessional thing I have ever read, Lebron was dedicated to Cleveland for 7 years or whatever and the cavs organization couldn't put together a team Lebron could win the championship with. I'd say 7 yrs is long enough. Now that he's moved onto a team that is building the team he needs to win ur salty??? Please. And this is now what it takes to get dan gilbert and the cavs to step their game up and start building a winning team? well now lebron knows gilbert, the cavs and the city of cleveland don't give a crap about him. But I think he'll be ok when he's drying his tears with that 110 mill check!!!

Jesse, knock it off! ...

Jesse, knock it off! ... Lebron is not going to give you one red cent… Where was Jesse when Siohvaughn lost her kids in Chicago the same week the NBA finals started?…How come you didn’t hear Jesse speaking on the shady judge in Wade’s case? I’m sure Jesse knows that broad. Hey Jesse do you think the Heat/NBA helped Dwayne tore Siohvaughn down? Do you even care about Black Women? Or only when you are paying to get in their panties with your Rainbow donations? What was Siohvaughn crime? Oh she didn’t fit the Heat image of how their team captain’s wife should look. Jesse, I hate you and most of the so-called Black Liberators. I am convinced that Al and Jesse are both extortionists. For years Al and Jesse have been shaking down “The Man” using the race card to stuff their pockets and paying for light skin long hair hoes…Lebron had no intention of staying in Cleveland because he is a Coon like the other Coons on the NBA/NFL plantations. Every time I see or hear about a black NBA/NFL player the first thing that comes to mind, another case of “Overpaid Reparation”. Jesse give it up Black folks don’t like most of today’s so-called black pro-athletes, at least not the superstars… We are not envious of their success; we are just over them, period.

If you read the letter the owner wrote and then read what Jesse Jackson said you would agree with the man. Not only was he irate like someone stole his personal property, he was basically trying to curse him for leaving. But if Jesse Jackson was really concerned with civil rights, he would've been talking about Oscar Grant...... Nuff said

Give me a break!!! You can't be so obvious to why this is a big deal? I agree with Lebron that it’s his choice but the big deal is MONEY for the city of Cleveland and the state, the big deal is sold out stadiums opposed to half empty seats….of course it’s a big deal

Thank YOU!! (In Pops voice) If you got a contract--personally--you are not a slave because you're being paid for your labor--DIRECTLY! Signing a contract is the direct antithesis of the definition of a "Slave".....

actually he IS a slave.....Thats why there's "Owners" who have a say in everything...he cant make moves without consulting his contract and the "Owners" of his team. they get Traded, and Drafted, and Hand Picked like slaves were..... if he breaks his contract he gets sued....and I personally dont pay him for anything because he doesn't entertain me...

And i DO have kids they are happy, smart and conscience..,and I will teach them to do for themselves and Not rely on someone to work for. And if i did sign a contact I would be sued, never said I wouldn't... thats y I dont sign slave papers... How is having a independent mind a coon.??? Y dont u read, gain knowledge, expand ur mind and learn something?? Dumb Android!

If you own your own business

If you own your own business then you have to sign contracts all day long (with your customers, other businesses, the government, etc, etc)---in just living life you sign and make contracts all the time and that doesn't make you a slave.... hell, if you are married, you have a legally binding contract.....lastly, your arrogant "better than other black people, I got it figured out because I'm like white people" mentality is very evident and you should go read, gain knowledge, expand your mind and learn something because I believe that you are truly misinformed---being a business owner does not exempt you from reporting to somebody sweetheart nor does an athlete reporting to somebody make them a slave. The whole idea of sports as slave plantations are ludicrous. If that was the case, I'm sure my ancestors wouldn't have minded being paid 10,000 times the average pay of the day to crop a little cotton---it was the "no pay" and "beating" thing that pissed 'em off!!

I'm glad your business is

I'm glad your business is thriving... Good for you. And just because your a business owner does not exclude you from subscribing to coonery; nor does education. However you analogies are that of a person who is stuck in the 80s. "OHHHHH that damn white man is trying to get me at every turn..." Newsflash: Correlating black athletes to slaves is not an 'independent' thought. Your 30 years behind on that one. Wishing your bottom line a great fiscal return.

ur ignorance is showing...not once did i blame anything on white people or the "white man"......dont put words in my mouth.....my independent thinking isnt that athletes are slaves..im independent in thought because im not owned by someones company telling me when i can leave, come in, eat lunch or go to the bathroom....i did not say BLACK athletes... ur making this racial....it wasn't racial...i didnt bring up anyone's race....thats what ur doing....So really...who is the one that is 30 years behind.....ur making it a black and white thing....im not...but thanks for your compliments android.

SHELL's picture

ALL B.S. aside and let's have

ALL B.S. aside and let's have some REAL TALK for a moment---maybe you don't know, so I'm going to let you in on something: Generally people don't use PLANTATION unless they're referring to racial issues that arose here in America between 2 groups of racial groups--i.e. blacks and whites. It's common parlance in America and it's culturally offensive (to both blacks and whites) to use that term unless you explicitly state what you're referring to....by the way, I don't believe that you are Navajo either because you would have cleared that up from the jump (or at least should have cleared that up from the jump), however if you are, you need to understand your audience before you mistakenly say something racially inflammatory and get yourself in a difficult situation when you really mean something else. Just a word of advice!--now we can all go back to our friendly discussion......

Jesse Jackson just has no

Jesse Jackson just has no VALUE. He makes good points but he used poor words to express that point of view. Cleveland LOST MILLIONS. And the way Lebron announced this was just excessive. He should have been upfront and just made a choice not done it in the way he did. That is the issue here. But Lebron wants to win and that is his choice. Jesse needs real issues to get behind because this is NOT it.

actually, Lebron made his choice the way he did because his ESPN special "The Decision" raised millions in advertising dollars for the Boys & Girls club. and who cares how much money Cleveland lost? how much did they gain from him being there for 7 years? i dont hear anyone thanking him for that.

Im sorry to presume, but you

Im sorry to presume, but you Must be from cleveland or akron, because only someone from Cleveland would debate the value in Lebron leaving w/o notice vs. GIVING 4 MILLION DOLLARS TO THE BOYS AND GIRL CLUB. Its his money! When you make his money, I would like to see you donate 4 million of your after tax income just so you don't hurt someone's feelings. Get over the cavs and buy an Ohio State sweatshirt already! Either move to a city where the hottest venue won't be if a LeBron is making an appearance OR realize you need to stop worrying about someone who doesn't know you from a box of rocks.

I don't see what's wrong with

I don't see what's wrong with this man telling the truth! I don't care if it's for his own publicity or not, I find his analogy to be valid! Dan Gilbert's letter spoke of Lebron as if he were owned by him and ridiculed him for making his OWN decision! It's a BUSINESS! Lebron was a FREE AGENT and was not obligated to stay in Cleavland! So what if he was from Ohio, that doesn't make him a representative for that state! I though what Lebron did was courageous because I'm sure he and his family would rather be in their home state but the NBA only gives you a certain amount of time to do your service to be considered a "true superstar." And he couldn't get it done in Cleavland. So what? I'm happy that he made his decision like he did. He stayed in Cleavland SEVEN FREAKIN YEARS with no progression. Seven is the number of completion and if he couldn't get it done within that amount of time then it wasn't gonna get done! Dan Gilbert should worry about the amount of money he'll be losing now that Lebron chunked the dueces!

Some of you are so IGNORANT

Some of you are so IGNORANT BY CHOICE. Please re-read your comments before posting them. We should all be thankful for the work Jesse Jackson and other infamous Civil Rights Leaders did for US; had it not been for them; many of you would not be where you are today. Yes, Mr. Jackson has over done it at times in the past; but considering we rarely see/hear from him could mean that he has learned from his overzealous publicity stunts in the past. I wish more AFFLUENTIAL Blacks would step up to the plate and speak up on behalf of other issues plaguing our people. Mr. Jackson did not take to CNN, Fox, TMZ or any other MEDIA OUTLET; he used his organization's WEBSITE to address this issue. We have to do better people; it's 2010 and that "crabs in a barrell" or "Willie Lynch" having mentality needs to be done away with.

Take your own advice Real Deal--I don't think you mean "infamous".....check your dictionary before you use words you don't know the meaning to.......seriously....this does not mean whatever you were trying to convey--I think the word you were looking for is "legendary" or something to that effect but definitely NOT "infamous" my dear.....Infamous connotes "bad reputation" e.g. the Outlaw Jesse James is infamous, Hitler is infamous, Stalin is infamous....you get the drift.....
Ms. Esquire's picture

Oh grow up. Most affluent

Oh grow up. Most affluent blacks are making progress by being AFFLUENT. Their energy is spent inventing, reading and thinking globally. Getting in front of a podium and talking race relations circa 1978 is not helping anyone. Affluent blacks are in Ivy league schools preparing for law school, wall street and going abroad. Some affluent blacks are living overseas and studying history from a Pan-African perspective. Some blacks are rewriting the history books as we speak so that our younger brothers and sisters have a accurate and global perspective of our global dominance and influence. So you have to ask yourself...would you rather speak about it or do something about it?

There are sooooo many other issues that Jessie could concern his self with. As someone else stated neither LeBron or Gilbert is hurt physically, emotionally, mentally, or financially (at the end of the day they will still be rich). We have other problems in the African American community that need to be dealt with.

Why is Jessie concerning

Why is Jessie concerning himself w/rich ppl? The black unemployment rate is over 10% and I believe damn near 15% for black men. Our black men aren't graduating from HS and black youth in Chicago are killing each other. Focus on real issues. The black community has way too much that needs to be fixed. Lebron is rich. Gilbert is rich. Most blacks are barely working clas. Jessie is a clown.
