Jesse Jackson goes on ESPN, makes idiotic remark about millionaire athletes & ‘cotton picking slaves’


That moment when a liberal says something so stupid…

Degenerate race hustler Jesse Jackson had the audacity to say black athletes making millions and living a life of luxury most Americans can only dream of are no different than slaves on a plantation picking cotton.

Appearing on Fox Sports’ “Undisputed,” Jackson weighed in on NFL players refusing to stand for the nation anthem and the reaction by some team owners, such as Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

Jackson bemoaned the fact some of the millionaire players don’t have guaranteed contracts, before charging that expecting players to stand for the national anthem is “illegal.”

“So you stand today, but you don’t play tomorrow,” he said. “That’s workplace harassment. That’s illegal.”

As mind-numbing as that remark was, the race-baiting reverend upped it.

“To go from picking cotton balls to picking footballs and basketballs without freedom is not very much progress,” Jackson said with a straight face. “It’s just a lateral move.”

It’s also an insult to every slave in America that once lived a life of servitude and bondage.

Jackson also pointed out that the author of the national anthem, Francis Scott Key, was a slave owner. Citing the third verse of “The Star Spangled Banner” — unknown to all but the grievance industry — he insisted that it’s racist.

“[T]hey never sing the third verse, no refuge could save the hireling and slave from the terror of flight and the gloom of the grave,” Jackson said.
