Introduction: LeBron James, a King in the Land of White America
In the United States, there is a long history of black athletes being discriminated against. Black athletes have been discriminated against by white Americans, black Americans, and even other black athletes.
In today’s society, the most notable example of this is the case of LeBron James. He has been discriminated against by white Americans for his decision to wear a shirt with a message that was in support of police brutality and violence against minorities.
This type of discrimination has led to many protests from African-Americans and other minorities who feel that they are mistreated in America. One such protest was made by LeBron James when he wore a shirt with a message that said “I am more than an athlete” while playing in an NBA game.
