Watch: ‘Athletes Are The New Slaves' Claims ESPN+'s New Anti-Racism Series
Can someone remind me how many millionaire slaves we currently have in America?
The definition of slavery is when you are forced to work and do not own the fruits of your labor.
But despite the actual definition of slavery, Black athletes being compensated millions of dollars for playing professional sports is the modern-day version of slavery in America, according to Campus Reform.
Last Month race-hustler Ibram X. Kendi debuted a new ESPN+ series titled, Skin in the Game, which 'challenges racism in the sports world.'
The five-episode series features episodes sub-titled: "How Do Athletes Play a Role in Social Change?," "Are Black Women Athletes Carrying the Weight of the World?," "What is the Cost of Race Norming?," and "What is the Impact of Racist Ideas in Sports Media?"
Former Olympian Gwendolyn Berry appeared in the documentary and claimed that professional sports contracts are like "slave chains."
Berry is the hammer thrower who turned away from the American flag as the national anthem played while later saying she was “pissed” that “The Star-Spangled Banner” played as she received her bronze medal.
"It's almost like the contracts are the new slave chains," Berry said.
"You're bound to this. And then if you break that, that’s your livelihood, that’s your life. So we the new slaves – athletes are literally the new slaves. Because we need this. Our families, our friends depend on this contract to eat," Berry added.
If this is what slavery is, then where do I sign up?
But okay, if it advances equity, I am perfectly okay with paying athletes minimum wage.
Would they also prefer at-will employment?
But in case it was not clear to the progressive activists, a contract is a mutually agreed upon document. And the risk does not come at the expense of the player in this situation.
But these are the same progressives who claim that people need special treatment to advance equity.
When it comes to the NBA, would this not mean that we need to discriminate against Black people to hire more White people in order to reflect the demographics of the population in this situation?
Obviously, we should not do that. But if activists actually believed what they said, and applied their ‘logic’ fairly, then that is what we would do.
But progressives only have double standards, or else they would have no standards at all.
This is actually so insulting to people who were actually enslaved as they were never given an option to not sign a contract.
They were also not paid millions to sit on a bench, but that is beside the point.
And are White athletes slaves as well? Or can only Black athletes be slaves?
Their claims really open up a lot more questions than answers.
The demand for oppression is very high these days.
