Free At Last

Leave it to Jesse to cry racism in a crowded theater:

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.....Jackson says Gilbert's comments "personify a slave master mentality"...

Much like the living / breathing constitution, the definition of runaway slave has changed with time. It used to mean a person sold into bondage and defined by law as property that escaped to freedom. It now means-according to Jesse- when a person decides to reject a $100 million dollar job in one state in order to accept a $100 million job in another state.

I almost feel sorry for Jesse. The Reverend Al has taken over the lion's share of the race racketeering business, and the White House is occupied by a black man, which leaves Jesse with very little to do.

With all that extra free time, you would think Jesse could have put it to good use by spending quality time with the child the very married Jesse had out of wedlock with the woman who worked for him in one of the very honorable organizations run by the good reverend.

Maybe he should introduce himself to the kid and take him to see Lebron play in Miami.
