After his house was recently vandalized, Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James took to the media to discuss the incident, painting it as “racist” in doing so.According to Business Insider, he is quoted as saying:
“But it just goes to show that racism will always be a part of the world, a part of America. Hate in America, especially for African-Americans, is living every day. And even though that it’s concealed most of the time, we know people hide their faces and will say things about you — when they see you, they smile at your face. It’s alive every single day…“No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, being black in America is tough. And we got a long way to go for us as a society and for us as African-Americans until we feel equal in America.”

How does Lebron James — or anyone — know the spray painting of his LA home was a “racist” incident? What if the investigation finds out the perpetrators were black? Funny how we always “rush to judgement” in such cases, yet when it’s an Islamic jihadist attack, the left tells us not to rush to judgement.
I am sorry that this happened, but please, Sir, do not make broad statements about how blacks are treated in America until you have the facts.
And I wish that Mr. James would speak out about the use of said word, which has been hurled towards me by liberal progressive socialist preceded by the word “House,” by rap music entertainers and others in the black community.[Learn more about Allen West’s vision for this nation in his book Guardian of the Republic: An American Ronin’s Journey to Faith, Family and Freedom]
