Jesse Jackson Says that Cav’s Owner Dan Gilbert Sees LeBron James as a “Runaway Slave”

The Rev. Jesse Jackson says Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert sees LeBron James as a “runaway slave” and that his comments after the forward decided to join the Miami Heat put the player in danger.

Shortly after James announced his decision Thursday night, Gilbert fired off an incendiary letter to Cleveland’s fans, ripping the 25-year-old and promising to deliver a title before James wins one. He called James’ decision “cowardly” and later told The Associated Press he believes James quit during a handful of Cavaliers playoff games.

Jackson says Gilbert’s comments “personify a slave master mentality” and the owner should face a “challenge” from the league.

Just what “Accountability” does Rev. Jackson intend to pay after his flip flop on whether a woman can “OWN” a child and kill that child in the womb thru abortion?

Jackson once stated, “It is strange that they choose to start talking about population control at the same time that Black people in America and people of color around the world are demanding their rightful place as human citizens and their rightful share of the material wealth in the world.

Not many know what Jackson wrote in a 1000 word essay to the National Right to Life News in January 1977 some thirty-one years ago. He said:

There are those who argue that the right to privacy is of higher order than the right to life. I do not share that view. I believe that life is not private, but rather it is public and universal. If one accepts the position that life is private, and therefore you have the right to do with it as you please, one must also accept the conclusion of that logic. That was the premise of slavery. You could not protest the existence or treatment of slaves on the plantation because that was private and therefore outside of your right to concerned.

“Another area that concerns me greatly, namely because I know how it has been used with regard to race, is the psycholinguistics involved in this whole issue of abortion. If something can be dehumanized through the rhetoric used to describe it, then the major battle has been won…. Those advocates of taking life prior to birth do not call it killing or murder; they call it abortion. They further never talk about aborting a baby because that would imply something human. Rather they talk about aborting the fetus. Fetus sounds less than human and therefore can be justified.

“What happens to the mind of a person, and the moral fabric of a nation, that accepts the aborting of the life of a baby without a pang of conscience? What kind of a person, and what kind of a society will we have 20 years hence if life can be taken so casually?

Jesse- stop pointing fingers at everyone else and return to your Christian principles of protecting life.

Today more African Americans die in racist abortion clinics placed in black neighborhoods and targeting them than from any other form of death. I urge Rev. Jackson to watch the film- Maafa21 for the historical proof that abortion is racist and it is time to hold those racists “accountable”
