MSNBC's Harris-Perry: The NBA is Precisely Like Slavery
Pundit Press ^ | 5/26/14 | Aurelius

Posted on 05/26/2014 2:42:51 PM PDT by therightliveswithus

Slavery is when human beings are owned by other human beings, used and often abused like animals, and taken advantage of all in pursuit of profit, either financially or for power. Slaves rarely were able to escape, and those who did often had to remain in hiding or in fear for their entire lives. Slaves who could not escape were doomed to toil, and frequently their children and grandchildren suffered the same fate.

According to MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry, the National Basketball Association is just like this.

Never mind that NBA players make millions of dollars every year. Never mind that, from playing in a single game, many NBA players make more than the average person makes in a year. Never mind that NBA players chose their career path and can leave whenever they want. Never mind that players who leave the NBA can do so of their own volition and if they do, they do not have to live in fear or hiding. Never mind that players aren't beaten by owners if they don't play well. Nope, the NBA is precisely like slavery!

Responding to statements made by owner Mark Cuban, Harris-Perry summarized it on her show sloppily: “Wealthy owners? Check. Profit made from the sale of black bodies? Check. Racial angst? Check.” She then stated that reparations would be the next topic on her show, alluding to arguments in favor of giving descendants of slaves some form of recompense.

I don’t seem to remember any slaves that got to play a game they love, have a scholarship pay for heir education, make millions of dollars, be free to leave anytime they want to and have sex with all the white women they want to. So wrong answer, dumba$$. It’s nothing like slavery. If it were why are so many trying to get on that same track?

The ultimate aim of this is to remove all white people from any capacity in the NBA.

Similar cases could be made for anyone who works for a boss.

It is just Lib-idiocy from the same types who recently discovered ‘white privilege’ as the new evil.

By all means, maybe all black people should be banned from the NBA. After all, they shouldn’t be abused in this way.

Problem is, most black guys would love to make the money and fame from being in the NBA. Listening to this rabid she dog, that is exactly what she wants. She wants blacks to pass up the NBA. Or perhaps all NBA teams should be stripped away from white people and given to black people. You know black slave masters are a whole lot better./sarc

Hmmm, gonna talk about reparations soon.

You know what, I am TOTALLY in favor of paying them reparations. But only if they can never claim or apply for welfare or any other program that grants the same sort of benefits of the programs currently in operation.

In the long run it’s gonna be a lot cheaper on the rest of us Wage-slaves.

Actually that's not a half bad idea. It would collapse under the weight of mismanagement, corruption, and fraud.

For you, simply living in America, is exactly like being a slave...without the chains, the beatings, brandings, disfigurement, being shanghai’d away from your family, your village, no decisions of volition or hopeful prospects for your life, the rapes, being breed for profit, the horrors and all that.

Would that the world or some country would give you the opportunities and advantages everyone should have.

So sad blacks can never hope for an education, in a field they might find interesting, earn money, choose how much money they want to earn and decide what they will do to get there.

complete tragedy that they are supplicants of a collective patron citizenry.

No one should be told to sit in the back or be abused by segregationist cultures. It’s wrong.

No one should live in fear that marauding Klansmen can drag them out of their homes and do whatever they wish.

All of this is exacerbated with no protection for their rights which, of course, they are not entitled to.

They are still only 3/5ths of a person under the law, as God intended.

Isn’t it a technical foul to have two white players on the court at the same time unless one of them is European?

After the collapse happens, her feral brethren will introduce her to slavery rather quickly since she was one of the ‘privileged’ and a race traitor working for the white man. She isn’t down with the struggle living in her expensive digs and jet setting. She is a currently useful voice to race bait. When there is no TV, there is no voice...and thus no use to the ferals.

It’s one of the things that makes said collapse seem desirable actually. Her, the Justice Bros, and many or the NBA types who ‘forgot who they were’ will quickly be turned on. And it won’t whites doing it.

If anything, MHP is the real slave. She works for a network that hates blacks and the only reason she is even on the air is because they need to fulfill affirmative action requirements.

My thoughts exactly, and they get to behave like complete asses and for the most part nobody cares. Sign me up! I'll be happy with the one season package. You have to wonder, does old hyphenated come up with all this stupid on her own, or does she have help?

Since NBA players are slaves, I suggest that the evil plantaiton owners sell their plantations to the highest bidder, and be done with the practice. Then see how the NBA does.
