    Thumbs down LeBron James is a runaway slave!

    Jesse Jackson faults Cavs owner’s LeBron comments

    CHICAGO (AP)—Jesse Jackson criticized Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert on Sunday, saying Gilbert sees LeBron James(notes) as a “runaway slave” and that the owner’s comments after the free-agent forward decided to join the Miami Heat put the player in danger.

    Shortly after James announced his decision last week, 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.

    “He has gotten a free pass,” Gilbert told the AP in a phone interview late Thursday night. “People have covered up for (James) for way too long. Tonight we saw who he really is.”

    Jackson said Gilbert’s comments were “mean, arrogant and presumptuous.”

    “He speaks as an owner of LeBron and not the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers,” the reverend said in a release from his Chicago-based civil rights group, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition. “His feelings of betrayal personify a slave master mentality. He sees LeBron as a runaway slave. This is an owner employee relationship—between business partners—and LeBron honored his contract.”

    Messages were left Sunday night seeking comment from Gilbert, the Cavaliers and James.

    Jackson also called Gilbert’s comments an attack on all NBA players and said the owner should face a “challenge” from the league and the players’ association.

    NBA spokesman Tim Frank declined comment.

    Jesse Jackson can blow goats for all I care.

    The Owner looked like an immature child with his rant.

    Lebron looked like an egotistical douche with how he handled it.

    Jessie Jackson makes money on racism. He never wants it to go away.

    I agree. i don't ever respond to articles, but this one I had to. I wrote the guy a quick little well done on his article. I hope he gets it.

    What the fuck does Jesse Jackson have to do with Lebron James, NBA basketball or the Cavs owner.

    Who does he thing he is, going around playing moral authority where he feels he can best lay his pseudo-intellectual, pseudo-philanthropic comments.

    However, I am not surprised JJ is continuing to see through his racism goggles once again.

    Thee's a pair. Jesse and Lebron. Now we mix in Jim Brown and we have 3 complete idiots. See what happens when your dad has sex with you at a young age, then leaves, comes back for more sex, beats your mom and leaves again?

    I knew this was going to happen. Lebron is cool.
