Skip to comments.LeBron James learned nothing from being duped by Trayvon Martin hoax

Ironically, LeBron James, a superstar basketball player, keeps getting "played." The Urban Dictionary defines "played" as "being made a fool of." LeBron James is once again the fool. After humiliating himself in his defense of China, James has rushed to judgment on the Georgia shooting of Ahmaud Arbery. "Can't even go for a damn jog...are you kidding me?" He tweeted, "We're literally hunted every day."
I will refrain from commenting on the Arbery case until all the facts are known, but I can say with complete confidence that LeBron's generalization is incendiary and outrageous.
For LeBron James, being played by the media is nothing new. Back in 2012, James got played in the Trayvon Martin case, big time. LeBron James, the fool, wrote messages on his sneakers: "We want justice" and "RIP Trayvon Martin."
As I detailed in my new film, The Trayvon Hoax: Unmasking the Witness Fraud that Divided America, prosecutors used the statements of a false witness to issue an affidavit of arrest for George Zimmerman, charging him with second-degree murder. The case proceeded to trial in 2013 in what was the most flagrant case of judicial fraud in modern history. Despite the fact that the state's star witness, Rachel Jeantel, was an imposter with a made-to-order storyline, Zimmerman was rightly acquitted. He is now suing the imposter, the real girlfriend Brittany Diamond Eugene, Trayvon's parents, the state prosecutors, and Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump for $100 million. Despite the ongoing lawsuit, the shameless Crump has descended on Brunswick, Georgia to cash in and incite racial animus in the Ahmaud Arbery case.
What I find encouraging is that many young black Americans are considerably more savvy than LeBron James. A few weeks ago, I began offering The Trayvon Hoax for free on You Tube for a limited time

You dont exactly have to be a Rhodes Scholar to dunk a basketball.
Why would somebody try to wrestle with a guy holding a shotgun? Doesn’t add up.
Hundreds here have already sided with the Black Lives Matter nonsense. Hold Fast people. Stop kowtowing to the wrong narratives.
This fool is nothing more than a high school graduate (probably with lots of help) who plays basketball very well, who had a mother who broke all kinds of laws with welfare fraud getting him a Hummer while on the public’s dole. Nothing more than that.
And if he and his NBA buddies were not playing basketball for incredible amounts of money, they’d most likely be in prison.
The flip side of working a corruption of blood, asserting white guilt just because “white”, is to eventually work an innocence of blood ... assigning innocence to “black” (in this sort of case) because, well, simply because.
In this particular case the truth is that once two armed men had “citizens arrested” the man, no matter how disrespected he might have thought it was he should NOT have attempted to get the gun away from one of them.
That was simply DUMB on his part.
He should have waited for the police to safely remove him from the custody of the two men or tried to reason with them. Or just sit there and sulk and feel prejudiced against till the situation got resolved. Had he done that he would be alive and have had his 15 minutes of fame on the news for what he said to the cameras rather than where he died.
Once he had grabbed for the gun all bets were off because at that point the older man really might have thought he could be in danger ... or he could believably maintain that he thought the intent was to kill him with his own weapon where his only intent had been to detain someone he thought could be a thief.
The dead man may not have been a criminal (I make no judgment) but he, faced with a bad situation, acted stupidly which made the situation worse and the result is that he got shot.
Correct, LeBron James a great basketball player, one of the best of all time...but he’s one of those people who think they are really smart but don’t have a clue...
He was duped by the Trayvon Martin story.
He has no clue about China and their repressive regime so long as he makes millions off of them...
Now he’s all in on the case in Georgia...
The more he talks the more he shows how really ignorant he is..
Never yield to your inner nitwit when a gun is involved.
“We’re literally hunted every day.”
And how many black kids are murdered by other black kids every day? No problemo I guess
I am not going to deal with the details of THIS specific case people are talking about today (i.e., the shooting ofthe shooting of Ahmaud Arberry) because I do not YET know enough about it, pending a trial. But let’s talk about what Lebron James believes — that widespread racism persists in the USA against blacks.
I believe that racism exists on all sides, and I reject the idea that you can only be racist when you are part of the ruling majority. Racism is a condition of the heart, and everyone can fall prey to it.
Having said that, I do believe that, while the term systemic racism may not fully apply to America today, the term system unfairness certainly does apply.
Let’s get real...
When people may ask what did the Black guy do? As opposed to why was the black mans life taken...it may be because of the high criminality statistics of Blacks. Especially Black males. The statistics are horrible.
Black on White Crime far exceeds White on Black crime in almost every area of criminal prosecution such as armed robbery, rape, murder. The state of Maryland has 75% Black incarceration! 1 in 4 Death row inmates are Black. And than you incredulously wonder why people are asking What did the Black guy do??
A Pew Research poll released in April 2019 pointed out that, despite a decrease in the number of blacks imprisoned in America, At the end of 2017, federal and state prisons in the United States held about 475,900 inmates who were black and 436,500 who were white a difference of 39,400.
Yet there are roughly 5 white Americans for every black American, meaning that, all things being equal, there would be 436,500 whites in prison and 87,300 blacks. Why the extreme discrepancy, one that was even worse 10 years ago?
We could go down the line, from crime rates to median incomes of families and more, and the discrepancy between white Americans and black Americans remains the same. (To repeat: I write this without feeling guilt. Im simply getting to an important point.)
So, when it comes to median incomes, in 2018, white American families averaged $70,642; black American families averaged $41,361. (Interestingly, Asian American families averaged over $80,000 per year.) How then do we explain this disparity?
For me, it boils down to one question: Do you believe that blacks are inherently inferior to whites (or Asians or others)? Do you believe they are, by nature, not as smart, or more prone to violence, or lazier, or more promiscuous?
If your answer is no (and I surely hope it is no; otherwise, you are a racist), then theres only one other answer: something is wrong with our system (or, put another way, we have still not fully recovered from our racist past).
This doesnt mean that the vast majority of whites are trying to keep blacks down. Or are inherently racist. Or want to maintain white supremacy. (Im sure some do; Im contending the vast majority dont.)
Im simply saying that when someone like Lebron James speak of systemic racism (or, at the least, systemic injustice), theyre not making it up. Their life experience informs them.
Unfortunately, the race baiters and the extremists in groups like Black Lives Matter often obscure our vision, as do the social theorists pushing their theories of intersectionality. Its easy to react against their positions, many of which are equally destructive.
And I understand the argument that, in some cases, there is a reason that policemen (of all colors and ethnicities) are quick to profile a young black male as a potential crime suspect.
The question is why is that young black male more likely to be a criminal? Why was his family life so broken? Why did he have so many odds to overcome growing up in the inner city?
Let’s honestly try to answer that question and try to work hard to solve that problem first.
“Prior to the trial in 2012, both blacks and whites rated race relations as positive. These numbers have been trending downward ever since.”
This is one of Obama’s legacies that Trump may not have time to erase.
If anyone is interested, I have this little bridge in Brooklyn to sell, real cheap too.
I think it’s less about ignorance than being a sell-out. He’s a wholly owned subsidiary of ChiCom, Inc.
‘but he, faced with a bad situation, acted stupidly which made the situation worse and the result is that he got shot.’
which is precisely why if the prosecutors bring a murder charge they will lose; or more correctly, should lose...reckless endangerment is the most they can be charged with now, based on evidence...
LeBron James kisses Chinese butt... and he hates his country. Hey LeBron James HOW MANY BLACK MEN WERE KILLED BY OTHER BLACK MEN LAST YEAR?
We now know why, when Lebron was born, his mother didn’t name him LeBrain. (borrowed from another Freeper)
“The question is why is that young black male more likely to be a criminal?”
The answer is “Because he chooses to”.
whenever one hoax is exposed, the left just moves on to the next hoax. It never thinks about the lies and dishonesty they spread, and they never apologize.
There are roughly 5 white Americans for every black American
I believe its closer to eight whites for every black, no?
RE: whenever one hoax is exposed, the left just moves on to the next hoax.
I don’t believe this particular case of Ahmaud Aubrey is a hoax. HE WAS SHOT, period. Why is the important question.
However, The reality is we still do not know all the facts. WAIT FOR THE TRIAL.
