She has a right to her opinion, but, the use of the term "slavery" is odd.
NCAA athletes are clearly exploited.
The Northwestern football team attempted to achieve certification as a union in 2015/16 and failed. There is far more to the debate than Mrs. Carter's son playing for Duke for free. The NCAA, to my knowledge, does not keep their TV money and use it to enrich their executives or whomever. The organization has a mission to support all student athletes not just ones that play sports on national TV.
The money the linebacker generates with exciting tackles on CBS sports goes to the swim team and the ladies tennis team and the...and the...etc. None of these sports make a dime, but each student athletes deserves the opportunity to participate as part of their education.
I think the Jesuit brotherhood ended University of San Francisco's D1 affiliation over just this issue (Not long after Russell graduated). The NCAA requirements were just too high (required too much money).
It certainly is a system and it is held in place by billions in ad money from TV networks. It is loaded with corruption and payoffs simply because there is tremendous financial reward. So many college's engage in financial support of their top athletes it basically is a "salary to play football". I'm shocked Carter didn't get any cash. The volley ball team didn't sure as hell didn't get any cash, but, part of the court they play in may have been built with TV money.
Those football kids get beat up pretty bad on the field. You blow a knee in the Sugar Bowl and no NFL cash is coming your way.
Anyway, I worked in management for a corporation for years....the wages were slave level, but, I could've walked away whenever I wanted.
