As black people we need to stop saying this. There is a Professional Baseball league filled with white, millionaire athletes. There is a Professional Hockey League filled with white millionaire athletes. So how is a Professional Basketball league filled with black millionaire athletes considered a plantation and how are black athletes slaves? We never ever, ever, ever, call a white multimillionaire athlete a slave and we didn't call them slaves when blacks weren't allowed to play in most professional sports. I understand where you are coming from and the point you are trying to make but I don't feel that it applies in NBA/NFL because money is a powerful asset which slaves had NO PART OF...when we say this we are doing more damage than we are empowering. I think its remnant of an inferiority complex. I see how you post and I don't think you have an inferiority complex so that's why Im giving you this long post cause I think people like us and everyone else who is taking this thread seriously should change our perspective on things like this.
