LeBron James: “It’s hard being black in America”

In the preview of the first game of the series between the Cleveland Cavarierls and the Golden State Warrios, who will define the new NBA champion, the star player LeBron James was a victim of vandalism: his house in Los Angeles woke up with racist graffiti, according to TMZ.
The main gate of LeBron James’ residence appeared with a racist slur first thing in the morning.
The word ‘Nigger’ (a word that refers to black people) had been sprayed on the front door of the house.
Before the complaint of a neighbor of the star of the Cavaliers, the Los Angeles Police quickly arrived at the scene to remove the offensive message from the house.
“No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people look up to you, being black in America is hard. And we still have a long way to go, as a society, to feel equal. “LeBron lamented during a press conference ahead of Thursday’s game, which will start the series against the Golden State Warriors.
The forward confessed that his incident reminded him of the emblematic case of a 14-year-old named Emmett Till, who in 1955 was beaten by white people, who attacked him because he had allegedly whistled at a white girl.
“I began to remember Emmett Till’s mother. It’s one of the first things I thought of. The reason why he watched over his son with the open coffin was because he wanted to show the world what happened to his son through hatred and being black in the United States, “he said. (Infobae)
