WATCH: JESSE JACKSON: NBA and NFL are Same as Picking Cotton, Blacks are “Going from Picking Cotton Balls to Picking Footballs and Basketballs”

Really?

Is this the best race-baiting you could come up with?

Pathetic civil rights activist Jesse Jackson was trying so hard to form a race argument out of the patriotism of everyday Americans that he compared African American professional athletes to cotton-picking slaves of the 19th century.

For some reason I cannot understand, Fox Sports 1 brought in Reverend Jesse Jackson to debate the controversial topic of the National Anthem protests.

Instead of saying that these overpaid, entitled brats in the NFL and other professional sports should be thankful for the opportunity to do what they do for a living in the greatest country in the world, Jackson had to find the lowest level and sink right to it.

This is what he had to say in his attempt to make it a race conversation and fuel the flames of division. Watch the video below:

According to Breitbart:

Fox Sports 1’s “Undisputed” brought civil rights activist Rev. Jesse Jackson on to discuss the National Anthem protests in the NFL.

Jackson bashed Trump for referring to the anthem kneelers as “sons of b******,” and then took aim at the NFL.

“To go from picking cotton balls to picking footballs and basketballs without freedom is not very much progress,” Jackson said Monday.

Jackson said the NFL not guaranteeing full contracts and allowing owners to cut National Anthem protesters without having to pay out the full contract, unlike in MLB and the NBA, is “workplace harassment” and “illegal.”

This guy is just despicable.

Might we remind the Reverend that every single weekend, 40 to 60 African Americans are shot by other African Americans in Chicago, but since it is not a crime perpetrated by a white male you don’t care.

Also, might we remind the Reverend that this country is the best country in the world because of capitalism and opportunity, and that the only privilege in life is WEALTH, and the power that comes with it, whcih is something these entitled brats already enjoy. Every other supposed privilege is a LIE.

Race baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton pushing false narratives ARE the ones dividing this country.
