When words don’t mean anything

Jesse Jackson compares the owner of the Cavs, angry about LeBron James spitting in his team’s face in the most public, extended way possible, to a slave owner. Obviously.

I’m not black, but if “slavery” is defined as being offered somewhere in the neighborhood of 120 million over 7 years (with summers off !) by Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, then that’s an indentured servitude I’d be happy to sign up for.

I wonder what an actual slave would have thought of this particular Jackson outburst.
