L.A. Lakers star LeBron James slammed the NFL’s owners as a bunch of “old white men” and said they act as if they are slave masters with a “slave mentality.”

The NBA star disgorged this accusation on his cable series The Shop, which airs on Fridays on HBO.

“In the NFL they got a bunch of old white men owning teams and they got that slave mentality,” James said kicking off the conversation. “And it’s like, ‘This is my team. You do what the f— I tell y’all to do. Or we get rid of y’all.'”

The basketball player with an estimated net worth of $440 million was speaking with his long-time business partner Maverick Carter, L.A. Rams player Todd Gurley (who’s estimated net worth is $15 million), and rapper, actor and racist Louis Farrakhan acolyte Ice Cube.

James added that he is proud that the NBA is more woke than the NFL and praised NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. “He doesn’t mind us having … a real feeling and to be able to express that. It doesn’t even matter if Adam agrees with what we are saying, he at least wants to hear us out. As long as we are doing it in a very educational, non-violent way, then he’s absolutely okay with it,” James continued.

As far as the barely literate James is concerned, the NFL does not care about its players.

“The players are who make the ship go. We make it go. Every Sunday, without Todd Gurley and without Odell Beckham Jr., without those players, those guys, there is no football,” James exclaimed. “And it’s the same in the NBA. … The difference between the NBA and the NFL: the NBA [cares about] what we believe [players] can be, the potential. In the NFL, it’s what can you do for me this Sunday or this Monday or this Thursday. And if you ain’t it, we movin’ on.”

James also praised his own league for being “non-violent” in their protests and activism.

“I am very educated about what I believe in and I’m not doing it in a violent way,” James concluded. “I’m not knocking on your door saying, ‘Listen, I’m kneeling today and if you don’t kneel with me, I’ll knock you the f– out.’ But you know people go crazy when things are done outside the box. People don’t know how to react.”

It was not clear who James thought was saying people should kneel or they would “knock you the f– out.”

Ah. Okay, then.

Is 2020 over yet? Is 2021 going to be worse? If Joe Biden is elected president, it is certainly possible – but dang. This year has been a trip and it’s only halfway through. Just wait until we get closer to the election. It’s gonna be fireworks. From TDW: The city council for Montpelier, Vermont unanimously rejected a petition to paint an American flag and the phrase “Liberty and Justice for All” in front of the Vermont State House. The city council made its decision in a contentious Wednesday night meeting where the members heard arguments for the murals from GOP gubernatorial candidate John Klar and several other supporters. Klar wanted to paint the flag on one side of an existing “Black Lives Matter” motto on the street, and the phrase “Liberty and Justice for All” in red, white, and blue painted on the other side.

Black College Student Finds Racist Notes On His Car, Evidence Shows He Planted Them Himself

How many race hoaxes does this make, now?

Race hoax, race hoax, where for art thou race hoax? It’s hilarious to think that some people believe they’ll get away with acts of nonsense like this, attempting to blame an entire group of people over something that never happened. If Texas A&M had a spine, they would expel this student on the spot. But they won’t. It would be bad press. From The Daily Wire: In late June, Texas A&M University student Isaih Martin made headlines after he said he found racist notes on the windshield of his car. […] Late last week, Texas A&M police closed the investigation. Just as in nearly every other instance of an alleged hate crime like this, police determined that the accuser was responsible for the notes. […] Police said there were no cameras to clearly capture what happened, but nearby surveillance footage showed only a few people walking near Martin’s car during that time frame, none of whom were near the car long enough to post the notes. […] Police said that “based on video evidence, no other person had enough time to place the messages on Martin`s car other than himself.” How about them apples? The worst part is that the guy will most likely never have to answer for his crime. What kind of life lesson is that?
