Lebron James: “We’re literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our homes! Can’t even go for a damn jog man! Like WTF man are you kidding me?!?!?!?!?!? No man fr ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!! I’m sorry Ahmaud(Rest In Paradise) and my prayers and blessings sent to the….. heavens above to your family!!”
Could you imagine if someone with a powerful voice like Lebron James was to use that voice as a megaphone that encouraged young black men to take more responsibility for their actions and their lives?
What if he was to use that voice to call on more black men to follow his example of dedication, hard work, and commitment for their own lives?
What if Lebron was to assume the posture of a victor and not a victim, and encourage other young black men to do the same?
Could you imagine if Lebron was to use his voice as a voice of reason in situations like these, calling for justice but simultaneously using his very powerful voice as a soothing, healing balm?
There is so much to be admired about Lebron James, but when it comes to this important issue, all he does is add fuel to the fire on the discussion about race in this country…what a shame.
