      @Margaret Nicol that is why so many american ladies are lonely and ladies cant just simply accept a compliment and let it have to be uptight and all political about everything

      @martin clarke Maybe that’s because it’s a VERY political topic – not a beauty contest? She’s a beautiful girl but the topic is not.

      @Margaret Nicol so you can only say a woman is beautiful if she is in a beauty contest? American are too serious sometimes…

    What a beautiful woman inside and out.

  6. Great work so many people have been disenfranchised from Democracy through voter suppression and purging of electoral rolls and mass closure of polling stations.

      There shouldn’t even be stores in neighborhoods where you have to bar the windows.

    • @Ricky Spanish pitiful attempt at distraction. Populist rhetoric and slogans are ineffective tactics in a crisis.

  7. A million “Thank yous” to Mr. Labron James for all the good that you do. May God bless you and America. 🇺🇸♥️🙏

  8. It’s my Sincere Hope that LeBron’s involvement will be the voice that brings Real Change to the way that America thinks about this injustice.. Akron has Always been a Community Centered city, and we have been proud of Him and Everyone in this town.. LeBron has Never forgotten Who he is, and How he was able to Move Forward.. The man is an inspiration to all of the people who have Hopes and Dreams.. It’s time to finally correct the injustices that have plagued this Country for Far Too Long.. Lary

    AND MAIL IN VOTING – So simple.. just like DMV renewal for plates…
    MAIL IN VOTE !!!

  11. Let’s send Trump’s favorite phrase (and the only one he gets right) back at him, “YOU’RE FIRED!” VOTE!!!!!

    • Yup we will VOTE him out!💪

    • No one is perfect but Biden will be better than trump period.

    • @Vic Una You’re right, we’re all human and imperfect, but there is a limit to what is acceptable when it comes to presidential imperfection!!

    • @pepoppins yes and in this case we have to choose from Biden and Trump.
      Biden is way better than trump. So let us say we are losing four years. I will prefer to still have our country after four years than loss our country.
      General Mattis is warning us all.

    • @Vic Una For most of us, we are one people, one nation. We are SO much better than Trump’s America! Thanks for the link; I’m all in for America and not at all in for Trump’s personality cult!

    We are with u james

  13. They should also use their money to employ lawyers to make sure the Republicans don’t reduce voting !

    I love LeBron. He is good to his family and always helps Ohio communities.

  15. Screw Trump, if America has to have a “king”…..

  16. The big change is that when brutality and racism occurs someone records what you do or say. They then share it with the world!!!

    Trump , Pence and his entourage votes by mail, why can’t everybody.

    Remind me, when was Laura Ingraham elected to political office? Her argument that people not elected to office shouldn’t have a voice on political matters is absolutely absurd, and it ironically disqualifies her own show from ever being aired.
