Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Worst Comic Ever



You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Yes, it actually suggests that college football athletes, who don't make millions like their team's owners, is akin to SLAVERY.  

Playing in the multi-million dollar stadiums is like the plantations.  And lifting weights for "40-50 hrs a week" (which is complete bullshit, by the way) is the same as working in the fields all day and night with no pay.  

Not to mention having your entire family torn apart, wife repeatedly raped, constant beatings and torture, and that whole not being able to leave thing and not even being given the status of a fucking human being.  

Does anyone really think someone born into slavery wouldn't trade places with a College Rock Star athlete in a second?  

I don't get offended easily but this really pissed me off and it did NOT belong on the front page.

We always make fun of teabaggers for making comparisons to slavery to the tax code, or Obamacare and the holocaust... THAT I expect.

But here on DKOS?  comparing the inadequacy experienced by a catered-to athlete as opposed to the team's overseers  as being the same as a cruel plantation owner and a black slave?

Seriously?  We need better than that.
