He sees LeBron as a runaway slave."5 minutes ago via webJackson said Gilbert's comments were "mean, arrogant and presumptuous.""He speaks as an owner of LeBron and not the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers," the reverend said in a release from his Chicago-based civil rights group, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition. "His feelings of betrayal personify a slave master mentality. He sees LeBron as a runaway slave. This is an owner employee relationship -- between business partners -- and LeBron honored his contract."Messages were left Sunday night seeking comment from Gilbert, the Cavaliers and James.Jackson also called Gilbert's comments an attack on all NBA players and said the owner should face a "challenge" from the league and the players' association.http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=5372266

This week, the Reverend Al Sharpton was involved in a car accident when the van he was driving smashed into a car, causing a multiple chain reaction. Apparently, it started as just two vehicles, but Sharpton incited it into a 10-car pile-up.
