Okay, all things being equal, those who have never actually been a slave themselves are not allowed to compare things to slavery. This also goes for Jesse Jackson.
In other news, which shows how GOOD-hearted the non-Jackson crowd is, BET's telethon has raised over $6 million as of 10 PM. God bless 'em. That's - you know, 300,000 times what I donated.
I'm not actually a regular BET viewer, if you were curious. I don't watch TV that often anymore outside of the weather channel, and get most of my news and sports from blogs and stores that sell blended puppy.
