“This is textbook Trump behavior,” Whitlock explained. “Remember two years ago when Trump called Haiti a ‘shithole’ country, and the mainstream media said his comment was proof of bigotry?”
“Is LeBron’s IG post proof of bigotry? It’s certainly proof of immaturity and hypocrisy,” Whitlock added.
Whitlock slammed James, saying, “it’s grossly irresponsible for James to call another human being, especially one he does not know, a piece of shit.”
LeBron fashions himself as a dignified statesman, role model, political activist, and champion of racial equality. He is every bit as crude, undignified, and inarticulate as our sitting president. James writes and speaks at a third-grade level. The athletic privilege he’s enjoyed since about age 10 has spoiled and pampered him the same way wealth privilege spoiled and pampered President Trump.
What’s worse is James’ actions and public pronouncements are far more racist and racially divisive than the president’s.
Whitlock also scoffed at the claim that LeBron James is the modern Muhammad Ali, going forth and leading the nation to a new age of civil rights.
