WATCH: LeBron James Speaks On N-Word Graffiti On His Front Gate

WATCH LeBron James Speaks On N Word Graffiti On His Front Gate


LeBron James Speaks on N-Word Graffiti on His Front Gate:

On Wednesday it was reported somebody spray painted the N-Word on the front gate of
LeBron James home. Many media sources are reporting it was LeBron's home itself.
This is false. The only thing confirmed now is that the front gate was vandalized
with the racial slur. The gate has already been covered with black paint. LeBron
James was not at home, and said in a press conference that his entire family is
safe.

LeBron James was visually showing emotional hurt on his face when talking about the
incident. He had strong choice words for a response. LeBron James spoke with his
head and eyes low in a soft tone when responding to a question concerning the
racial slur.

"It just goes to show that racism will always be a part of the world and a part of
America," says LeBron James. "Hate in America as an African American is living
everyday," James says.

"No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how
much people admire you its tough being black in America," says James.

Yes, LeBron James just said its tough being black in America. These are some strong
political viewpoints James is showing. Critics even say he is using the incident
just to be political, so lets be clear. There is a reason a pictured was painted in
this article about James facial expressions and tone of voice. He was not angry. He
did not yell to make a charismatic speech. This was not political theater. This is
not building up motivation for tonights Game 1 of the NBA Championship. This is
just a man deeply hurt by racism.

Ironically, the critics are correct about one thing. This could be good motivation
for James tonight playing for the third time Stephen Curry and the Golden State
Warriors. Even more ironically, the racist that spray painted the racial slur, whom
it can be assumed it was meant to offend LeBron James, might have actually embolden
James to play better tonight. Even if that was not the original intention.
