    This is a new low, even for these bottom dwellers.

    Using the hashtag #NoJusticeNoLebron, activists, led by writer Tariq Touré, have unleashed a Twitter campaign asking the NBA superstar to put his season on hold until the Department of Justice — which is investigating the fatal November 2014 shooting — “imprisons the murderers of Tamir Rice.”

    Some supporters of the campaign cited the successful ouster of former University of Missouri System President Tim Wolfe — aided by striking university football players — as an example of the inherent power of athletes to influence change. Others posted videos of iconic boxer Muhammad Ali and his refusal to be drafted into the Army.
    “Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights?” Ali famously asked.
    “I ain’t got no quarrel with them Viet Cong,” he added.

    I am sure LeBron will jeopardise his $100 million a year

    LeBron does tend to get wrapped up in this kind of shit. Remember when he wore a hoodie on the court during the Trayvon Martin nonsense?

    Do you think he realizes that most of his fans are white kids?

    I don't think he would give up his money. even if believes in the cause. He's basically a Limousine liberal at this point.

    Hard to believe that this crap is still going on. In a sane world, the Major of Cleveland would use this as a teachable moment to let young Blacks know that they should listen to the police, and not threaten them.

    It really is so simple.

    Exactly, instead of teaching the kids that it's not polite to point a realistic gun at people, he chose to toss the cops under the bus.
