The book “40 Million Dollar Slaves” was written by Bill Rhoden from the New York Times. He says that, even though professional athletes make tons of money, they are still enslaved. This topic has gotten hot again after Donald Sterling of the Los Angeles Clippers made some racially-controversial statements this week.
The guests say that if you are not free to speak your mind and not free to do what you want, you are still a slave. Many athletes are not racially conscious, and if they were to speak up, they would be punished. Whites aren’t going to understand the issue, but it seems that this is a conversation that has to occur.
Do you think that athletes are 40 million dollar slaves or something else?
Many people complain that athletes are empty-minded, do nothing for the rest of the community and leave black people behind.
Do you agree?
The video below is pretty deep, and perhaps one that needs to be shared so that black people can have a conversation about our collective future.
Tell us what you think.
