I've got to disagree with the last part. A lot of black people viewed it the same way. Jesse was just the one who came out and said it because that's what he does. I know Jesse's history with this type of stuff isn't great but a lot of people agree with him on this one.
Cleveland fans have been through hell and thats why I feel for them, because I know what its like. I am a DIE HARD Buffalo Bills fan. I was born here in NC and have lived here my whole life but my family is mostly from Buffalo and I have loved the bills for 20+ years. Losing four straight super bowls, music city BS and missing the playoffs for 10 straight years is pretty tough and I feel for the Cavs fans, even though I never cheered for the Cavs.
I am also a huge fan of the Cats and Panthers but I dont love them like I do the Bills.
My thing is that JJ should have never brought up slavery and compared this to slavery. He could have said it would be like a business losing their best employee but only someone who see's everything through racism eyes and has made his living off claiming racism would make this comment.
