    THIS is what it looks like to “Make America Great”. For Real. LeBron Setting a good example for us all.
    Unlike Wussolini the draft-dodging hate-monger.

      @Ellen Peba can’t wait to see the tears in your face when Trump losses the election

    • @Htown Rockets First of all, you’re a poor writer–can you improve your skills?? For 2020, Votes MIGHT be counted by Tues night, Nov 3rd, but we may not hear results until around 3 AM EST Wednesday. It was around 3 AM Wednesday that hilly called to admit her loss. Find Jesus, H.

    Real life hero king of court

  3. I pray more people with the same celebrity as LBJ will do the same and help mark change

    • They will! Mind you a lot of people in America are followers (No Pun intended) Whatever they see the majority do, or what’s popular everyone else follows!

      @Big Mucci true you cant take celebrities seriously because they will go for whatever is popular in order to gain more fans

    • Black business owners have long complained that they have little access to banking and finance. Let’s see LeBron, Oprah, Magic, Jordan, and other wealthy black americans start up a black banking network.

    • @Corey Ham oprah and Jordan will do what they have been doing talking about helping black people just not in America. They give to other countries but not the people right here with them

      Lebron James: Five Humongous Charitable Donations
      moneyinc.com/lebron-james-five-humongous…
      Lebron donated $2.5 million to the exhibit, joining Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson in contributing. Lebrom has said that Ali was an important inspiration to him as an…
      Author: Garrett Parker. He invested in the project — both financially and personally. James and Savannah make public appearances as much as their schedule permits, while LBJ even has personal relationships with some of the students.

      James also saw to it that these kids will have a path after high school, partnering with the University of Akron to provide free tuition for every graduating student covered under the pre-existing Akron I Promise Network Scholarship. LeBron’s foundation has pledged $41.8 million in scholarships. https://clutchpoints.com/lebron-james-donations-over-the-years/

      I’m not a Liberal or a Conservative. But that coming from Lebron James is hugely hypocritical. The same guy who defends the Chinese government vs the Hong Kong protesters on Democracy. Lebron only cares about that Money .

    • @Project Dronesexuality You have COMMON SENSE…. 💪💪💪💪💪

      Folks, PLEASE NOTE: Ernesto Gastelum, Jason, TILT, MrLilfee, Ali B, Gooey 911 and K K are downright irrelevant imbecile materials. They could not have cared less about Americans. They are paid peanuts by putain putin to take time off from regular mushrooms picking jobs in Moscow and bark out disinformation using multiple accounts. Most of us ignore these cretins

    • @IMPEACHED TRUMP CANNOT WIN WITHOUT CHEATING Ok, JUSSIE SMOLLETT… NANCY WAKANDA is PROUD of you…. Keep FIGHTING for SOCIAL JUSTICE… One Cheesecake at a TIME…

    Combat voter suppression wherever it is found, in black communities and Native American communities too.

    They need to Immediately, get the Professional Team’s in Georgia, to get on Board!

    Don’t wait for election. People power!

  11. King James for President (he’s taking his talents to the White House)

  12. Take note. This is called stepping up

      @Ali B LeBron James isn’t running from anything.

    • Con -yes and some people on this thread are proving how closed minded and racist they are. Losers.

      Do not pay attention to them. PLEASE NOTE: Ernesto Gastelum, Jason, TILT, MrLilfee, Ali B, Gooey 911 and K K are downright irrelevant imbecile materials.

      @Dinerokid 16 except when it comes to the freedom of the Chinese. This man is a coward when his pocket is threatened he shuts his mouth. Hero’s of real cause and change will risk everything for what’s right not just when it’s safe

      @justin gartside You are dumb bro.

  13. This is why I love King James 🙂

  14. Hour long lines ? NO THEY WAITED FOR HOURS AND MORE HOURS.

  15. The Junebug and Austin Show | June 11, 2020 at 11:03 AM | Reply

    Your career/fame shouldn’t be on the line for speaking out about something that is morally right

  16. I will definitely donate monthly to this organization. What happened in GA is insane!

    • @Alic4444 LeBron James argument is as honest as the Credibility of JUSSIE SMOLLETT…

    • @TILT You care more about Juicy Smollett than black churches, jewish synagogues, and latino americans being attacked by white supremacist terrorists, and men, women, and children being murdered on US soil?

    • @Alic4444 If it is so bad… In AMERICA… Why are they here??? All these INNOCENT VICTIMS

    • benjaminwayneb | June 12, 2020 at 8:50 AM | Reply

      @TILT They are here because they are better Americans then you are.

    • @benjaminwayneb Well… You must have such a holy Moral Values scale to judge….. BTW where do you place BARRY and Nancy WAKANDA…???

  17. Wow! Kudos to LeBron. Everyone needs to step up and vote and to insure fair elections.

    Glade to see some body standing up for voting rights

  19. Re: no confederate flag at NASCAR races. Reminds me of when smoking was banned indoors in my state. The bars and restaurants were gonna go out of business. Indeed, the bar attached to my favorite restaurant was empty for a while. Then the non smokers got a whiff and guess what? They were more crowded than ever.

  20. So tired of racist cheering on black athletes, musicians, celebrities, and accepting them as long as they stay in their lane. Good for James for stepping out of his lane. Take advantage of the moment and do what has been needed for a very long time.
