Start a thread on your topic, Furry.



Exactly. Once again he finds a way to twist the topic and hijack another thread. I’m just going to ignore him at this point.


That just shows me that you know I'm speaking the truth and you can't win the debate. I think it is sour when someone plays an arena and complains then about slavery when our tax dollars subsidized the arenas, theaters. Comes down to greed. All I ask you to do is open up your perspectives on the issues of slavery. I see slavery as a modern and happening now. Taxation is a form of slavery.


"Taxation as slavery is the belief that taxation results in an unfree society in which individuals are forced to work to enrich the government and the recipients of largesse, rather than for their own benefit."


AKA SUBSIDIZED SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT.


Nope, it’s not a competition so nothing to win here. Your responses just shows you intentionally threadjacked the topic of the thread, which is something you do quite often here, when a specific topic of discussion makes you uncomfortable. But go ahead.. keep knocking yourself—> err out.

If you don’t like the truth that LeBron said about some of the white nfl owners having a slave mentality, because it openly suggests they treat the Black NFL players like slaves, and you can’t handle that is what that statement implies, then why should LeBron not have the freedom and right to expose or say that? You don’t own LeBron nor do you have any right to tell him he can’t make that statement, especially based on your biased views.


Nor do you have any entitlement to tell any Black football player that they have no right to protest against the national anthem (just like you ranted against Colin Kaepernick for that) or that they can’t take a knee in protest.


All you have is your opinion, just like everyone else... and that’s it. All your ranting will not stop LeBron or anyone else for exposing ugly truths that make you uncomfortable. Neither will twisting the topic/defectling because of your biased views. LeBron said it..and there’s nothing you can do about it, but continue draining all your energy and stressing over something you absolutely have no control over.


Many here said if you want to start a thread about modern-day slavery in America and around the world, then feel free. No one here is stopping you, because even if you do start that thread, it will not change what LeBron said. Good luck. comfort




oh what a silly reply:



1) Even IF I had (and I did Not)

I can handle it and I am simply pointing out insulting it is... If a Rich white person said "I am being treated like a slave" would you accept it? Well if it was a Republican? I have not said he lacks the freedom to say what he said.... you, however, DID say I have no right to tell him something (oh and I never did say he was not allowed so that is yet another sign you missed my point or are you being dishonest?

but he has the right to say that and I have the right to call his ass out... and you can like it or not and call me out or whatever it is cool... you can even show hypocrisy and tell me i cannot tell him something... it is all good.

2) I can tell any person that they have no right to protest... But I never have... colon is free to do do that... and I am Pretty SURE I never ranted. I think you lack clear memory? The Irony here is you are the one telling me I have no right to tell someone the cannot say something

what you may be confused with is my support of his bosses absolute RIGHT to their free speech and their RIGHT to have standards of conduct at work. Which is my very consistent standard.

3) and your rants will never make his comparison of millionaires to slaves valid. I have twisted nothing... if anyone is twisting it is you and the other defenders of what he said... what he said is a slap in the face of all slaves...

4) and this post is about him com[paring millionaires to slaves... so I will stay here thank you...


How hilarious it is to be accused of something I did not do and then to be told I can not do what I was falsely accused of having done? Ha!

"YOU have NO Right ro tell anyone they can not say something!" Really go back and read that! haha...

Antifa: are Fascist. People are fooled by their name! They carry out acts of violence to instill fear in order to push a political agenda or combat one. Do you support them?

Leave it to some to defend this... amazing. And I do not mean defined in terms of free speech issues... MANY MANY here often confuses free speech with being held accountable for your speech. For most of the,m it seems to be based largly on the poltical leanings of the speaker.

To say to take what james said and applying its clear implication is decidedly within the scoop of this topic. If the owners have a "slave mentality" then it goes without saying that the players are being treated like slaves. Add to that jame's race slurs and overall racially charged statement... and yeah he is comparing people--some made millions and ALL of them well within the 1% of top earners-- to slaves. And sorry that IS an insult to both the 40Million slaves today and the slaves of the past. (and of course, some here have shown how they do not grasp the true history of slavery.

If you don’t like the truth that LeBron said about some of the white nfl owners having a slave mentality, because you feel his statement openly suggests they treat the Black NFL players like slaves, then why should LeBron not have the freedom and right to expose or say that? Apparently he sees some form of racial injustice/disrespect being played out by some of the white NFL owners towards Black players. You don’t own LeBron nor do you have any right to tell him he can’t make that statement, especially based on your biased views. Secondly, I believe you’re actually angry because he made the statement about the ‘white nfl owners’ having a slave mentality. You’re certainly not concerned if the Black Players are being treated like slaves. Especially with your attitude and angst you spewed towards Colin Kaepernick and names you called him, for taking a knee against the national anthem, because he protests against racial injustice/police brutality. You really have no entitlement to tell any Black football player that they have no right to protest against the national anthem or protest against racial injustice/police brutality. All you have is your opinion, just like everyone else... and that’s it. All your ranting will not stop LeBron or anyone else for exposing ugly truths that make you uncomfortable.

First things first, it's Colin have some respect for the man his name will go down in history and yours won't lol

Yes, LeBron is a millionaire but that doesn't mean people around him will see him as an equal and it's still true that some white team owners do have the slave owner mentality and trust me it's not only limited to basketball, you can find that literally EVERYWHERE. Let me give you an example, don't know if americans do this, but I heard about german men flying to thailand to marry a thai woman just to make her a slave at home, some are allowed to go to work, so they are free in that area, but if they come home, they are not. She's earning her own money but at home, she's a slave. And some don't even allow them to go to work. See these men believe they own these women, the think of them as property, not as human beings, just like some white team owners. Simple as that.

Let me give you an example, don't know if americans do this, but I heard about german men flying to thailand to marry a thai woman just to make her a slave at home, some are allowed to go to work, so they are free in that area, but if they come home, they are not.

See these men believe they own these women, the think of them as property, not as human beings, just like some white team owners. Simple as that.

Haha First I call him Colon as he s full of it... so yeah f him... Oh and just like how some call trump names or called bush names I like to call some people names... it is harmless and funny how you and others get all twisted over it... I can not recall you doing that but others that have gotten all mad at me for things like colon or names for barack or hillary (there was one funny topic when someone mocked trump by using a play on words so i did the same with hillary and oh they got all twisted!


second: you agree with me that there is racism and even the most successful of people of color are often not seen as equal. and that has nothing to do with what was said here... I mean there is a far cry from being the victim of racism (even the worst of democratic jim crow laws and democratic slavery)

Third... are you trying to make my point that slavery is alive and well?

No, the example I made is far more than "just racism" these men believe they own these women and that the women have to do whatever they tell them to do, just like some white team owners in Basketball, they aren't just racist, they do believe that black players are their personal property. They might own the team as a whole but they don't own individuals. Some still have that mentality, why can't you just accept it? And LeBron being a millionair has absolutely nothing to do with that. Just keep the fucking money out of it will ya? It's not a solid argument.

‘Only’ doesn’t have respect for Black atheletes who support Colin, nor does he have respect for LeBron because of who both athletes are. His anger is about what LeBron said, and what Colin’s protest is about, which makes (Only) extremely uncomfortable, especially whenever Blacks stand up and confront racism and expose it for what it is.

He’s angry because LeBron specifically said that some of the ‘White football team owners’ have a slavery mentality. He’s angry because LeBron said it about ‘White’ NFL owners—that is the main reason ‘Only’ is spazzing out over LeBron’s comment. It’s so obvious, but he’ll never admit that, that is the real reason behind his angst and criticism of LeBron’s comment.

He’s upset because he has no power or authority to prevent LeBron and Colin, from exposing America’s racial injustices.

No, he is totally wrong. he is assuming something about me and none of that is the case. but I am letting it go... I forgive 2elijah and I forgive you for making up falsehoods. I get it... you and 2elijah have a point of view and can not seem to see that I can disagree with someone for something they say or do and call them out on it without regard for ANY OTHER factors.

I do not have a big issue with Colin taking a knee. And you can go look. calling him colon was not nice of me. But I also support his bosses rights to do what they want to do over that. A boss has a right to have standards of conduct at work.

My issue with James is not about him being black or rich or whatever it was that 2elijah and whoever else made up... it was simply his comparison of well-paid people to slaves...

The fact that several have an issue that all but 2 NFL teams are owned by white people... seems to suggest that there is something wrong with that... and is in need of correction--seems to say that some owners ought to be forced out! *like whoever that NBA owner was forced to do*

If you do not take issue with a person's race being used to determine rights then you have no leg to stand on. And YES I know that is what happens to some groups now... but that is NOT a reason do it to someone else.

falloff You are sooooo full of it. Once again, LeBron’s reference to ‘old white NFL owners’ having a slavery mentality, against Black athletes on their team, more than likely refers to those ‘older’ White NFL owners who were born prior to/during the Jim Crow era, and lived through the civil rights era as well. You have to remember that, during those eras existed a slavery mentality within American society, because there were racial discrimination laws/segregation in place against Blacks. Those ‘older’ NFL owners were part of that era/society.

So yes, LeBron has a good point. All you had to do was take the time to read between the lines of his statement, and you could have saved yourself all that pent-up anger.

Once again, LeBron’s reference to ‘old white NFL owners’ having a slavery mentality, against Black athletes on their team, more than likely refers to those ‘older’ White NFL owners who were born prior to/during the Jim Crow era, and lived through the civil rights era as well. You have to remember that, during those eras existed a slavery mentality within American society, because there were racial discrimination laws/segregation in place against Blacks. Those ‘older’ NFL owners were part of that era/society. So yes, LeBron has a good point. All you had to do was take the time to read between the lines of his statement, and you could have saved yourself all that pent-up anger. [Edited 1/4/19 19:40pm]
