Lebron James Speaks On #45 Sympathizing With White Supremacists And Changes We All Can Make – Tha Wire
Today in Tha Wire: My people, there comes a time where ignoring “The Elephant” in the room is no longer possible. When a person shows you who they are, believe them. Trump showed the world who he was Tuesday, August 15, 2017. Some weren’t surprised, some were astonished, and a very small group was even proud. Yet the habitual and reckless rhetoric coming from #45 has reached a point that SOMETHING MUST BE DONE. For the integrity of the office, the character of this great nation, for the fabric from which our laws were built, and the thousands who risk their lives in the name of freedom on a daily basis.
What will history say about all of this? Better yet, what will the nation’s senators and government officials in Washington do to end the inexcusable embarrassment this president has become? What will their legacies be? We shall see. If they are as shocked, disgusted, and mortified as they claim to be, they will act accordingly. There is no doubt about it: 45 has tarnished the image of the highest office in the land.
Like most of the nation, LeBron James is sick and tired of 45’s reckless shenanigans. After Trump shocked the world when he sympathized with white supremacists, the NBA great felt he had to address the situation. HipHollywood reports the baller hosted 7,500 kids at his annual LeBron James Family Foundation charity event on Tuesday night, in his hometown of Akron. James called for peace. Below is a look at what he said, per ESPN reporter Dave McMenamin‘s Twitter page:

Well said King James! I wholeheartedly agree. God said Love thy neighbor as thyself. Not just your white neighbor. Not just your black neighbor. Not just your Asian, or Mexican, green, blue or polka dot neighbors. Love thy neighbor…as you love yourself. We do that, we will ALL be all right.
