LeBron James has done a lot of good in his 18 years in the NBA. He’s given back to his Akron, Ohio community, and his “LeBron James Family Foundation” has made a difference in the lives of thousands, raising and donating money to several charities. Some of these charities include the After-School All-Stars, the Boys and Girls Club of America, and the Children’s Defense Fund.
His charitable donations should not be overlooked. He’s never forgotten his humble upbringing and the community that helped him become the global icon he is today.
But this time, James missed the mark. And in a big way.
Just a day after Derek Chaivin was convicted on all charges in the death of George Floyd, James threw fuel on the already burning fire of racial tension in America.
Hours after the verdict, Ma’Khia Bryant of Columbus, Ohio was shot and killed by a police officer while reportedly attempting to stab another black woman during a heated altercation. Video
