The NFL is one of the closest things we have to the old ante-bellum Southern plantations running on slave labor. We have a bunch of rich white guys, about half of them Jews, each owning dozens of black men. Of course, the black men are not slaves; they are well paid, but they are not always free to leave, depending on their contracts which bind them to their owners. But the black players love their owners, just like the old slaves used to love the plantation masters with whom they lived. It’s nice that black players love their white owners. It’s ironic that men who choose to be slaves are now protesting for more freedom.
