LeBron James responds after “racially motivated slur” was found spray-painted at home

IMG_3808“No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, being black America is tough and uhm. We got a long way to go, for us as a society and fo us as African-Americans until we feel equal in America.”   –LeBron

LeBron James incident of “racially motivated slur” which reported to the police this morning, one day before Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors

“racially motivated slur” was spray-painted  on a front gate of the Cleveland Cavaliers star’s West Los Angeles home.

LeBron James, who was not at home, said “As I sit here on the eve of one of the greatest events we have in sports, race and what’s going on comes again.”

“On my behalf and my family’s behalf, I look at it like this: If this is going to shed a light and continuethe conversation… then, I’m ok with it,”. “My family is safe… and that’s the most important. Just goes to show that racism will always be a part of the world, a part of America. Hate in America for African-Americans is living everyday, even though it’s concealed most of the time.” LeBron said.

And I think back to Emmett Till’s mom, actually. It was spoken the African-American teenager who was lynched in Mississippi in the 1950’s. “One day I thought of, one of the reasons she had an open casket, was because she wanted to show the world what her son went through as far as a hate crime, being black in America.
