  1. In between helping the Los Angeles Lakers win an NBA championship. LeBron James spent his energy on the NBA’s quarantined campus speaking out on systemic racism.

    So imagine James’ feelings when Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Graveley announced that no charges would be filed against the police officer that shot Jacob Blake, a Black person who was then left paralyzed.

    “To hear what happened in Kenosha today was a blow to the heart and to the gut,” James said following the Lakers’ 94-92 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night. “Not only to that community, but to us and to every Black person that has been a part of this process and seeing these outcomes for so long. Not only in the Black community, but in the white community as well who see moments like this happen.”
