Worst Comic Ever
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.
