LeBron James has built a reputation for using his platform to amplify the voices of the Black Lives Matter movement. A few years ago when James and his peers spoke out politically, Fox host, Laura Ingraham, told them to “shut up and dribble.”
She had a different tune when NFL quarterback, Drew Brees, spoke about peaceful protests and how its disrespectful to the troops to kneel during the national anthem and the flag.
“If you still haven’t figured out why the protesting is going on. Why we’re acting as we are is because we are simply F-N tired of this treatment right here! Can we break it down for you any simpler than this right here???? And to my people don’t worry I won’t stop until I see change,” LeBron wrote.
Lebron James promised his people that “he won’t stop” using his voice and that’s exactly why he’s arguably the best NBA player of all-time.
