Akon Louis Farrakhan is Dead Wrong ... LeBron James Is NOT A Slave

EXCLUSIVE

Akon is calling major BS on Louis Farrakhan ... saying comments he made comparing NBA basketball to modern day slavery -- and LeBron James to a slave -- are totally and completely off base.

Farrakhan made the statements at a recent Nation Of Islam event in Detroit ... trashing the NBA -- as an exploitative operation where black men are "bought and sold" ... exactly like slavery.

Akon doesn't agree ... and when we got him out at LAX he admitted he had respect for Minister Farrakhan, but didn't hesitate to give him the business ... calling his statement "bulls**t."

Check it out.
