LeBron didn’t even have to give a sh*t about Hong Kong really. But he attacked Morey for having an opinion on something he either relates with or feels passionate about clearly because of the financial ramifications. As a leader amongst the players it was a terrible look and terribly hypocritical when he now is leading a boycott of the league over an issue he feels strongly about. Just like Morey did.Hong Kong is a whole different issue and is complex. Are you familiar with how Hong Kong was westernised in the first place? It is a bit of a stretch to expect LeBron James or the NBA to resolve the Hong Kong protests.
I also note that LeBron James and the NBA have not resolved Middle East peace, the Palestinian question, tensions in Ukraine, Belarus, Kashmir, Ethiopia, they haven't cured aids, cancer, coronavirus, global warming............ Do you expect them to stop playing until the whole worlds issues are resolved?
And given LeBron James and pretty much the entire NBA are not Chinese there is not much personal connection to the issue either.
LeBron James is an African American man and the NBA is a mostly African American League in a country where they believe African American men are being unfairly treated.
He is entitled to protest and just because they are good at basketball does not take away that right. Not taking up every cause on earth does not take away that right either.
And arguing that is does is weak.
Generally when self confessed Marxists start up a group they push their views through it.
Let Mr Wiley explain why they the group are problematic.We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.
Americans will do it even if it’s not deliberate. NFL comes back soon which is like a religion over there and people will just watch that. I’d argue it’s all the international fans being impacted more by this.If players/teams can boycott the league/playing, them we the people can boycott them. Who's going to do this?
Bostonian's become unhinged. It's over when you think cultural marxism is a thing.
Cultural Marxism generally refers to one of two things:
- First — extremely rarely in popular discourse — "cultural Marxism" (lower C, upper M) refers to a strain of critique of popular culture by the Frankfurt School, framing such culture as being imposed by a capitalist culture industry and consumed passively by the masses.
- Second — in common usage in the wild — "Cultural Marxism" (both uppercase) is a common snarl word used to paint anyone with progressive tendencies as a secret Communist. The term alludes to a conspiracy theory in which sinister left-wingers have infiltrated media, academia, and science, and are engaged in a decades-long plot to undermine Western culture. Some variants of the conspiracy allege that basically all of modern social liberalism is, in fact, a Communist front group.
Protesting involves people walking down a street with placards having their say.
Your insistence this isn't about racism is starting to make sense.Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a newly surfaced video from 2015 that she and her fellow organizers are “trained Marxists” – making clear their movement’s ideological f…www.google.com.au
Man who committed a crime previously deserves to die?This is who they are protesting for and that's not even the most recent charges he's facing. Has a history with guns.
No the numbers of all races being killed by police in the US is staggering.Your insistence this isn't about racism is starting to make sense.
Man who has history with gun crime is seen as far more of a potential threat than man with speeding ticket.Man who committed a crime previously deserves to die?
I mean, lets not even get into the systemic reasons behind higher levels of black crime, but thats.... um yeah
The issue is there is absolutely ZERO evidence that those SAME police officers on that same day would not have done the same to a white man with the same criminal history and resisting arrest in the same manner.The issue is that a white person would not be given the same treatment. There’s videos circulating of white offenders in the exact same situation and the police handle it differently. Why can’t 3 officers subdue the man before he gets to his car? Ample time to do so. Why shoot him 7 times in the back?
Meaningless to an individuals interpretation at an exact moment on that exact fateful day. Absolutely zero evidence those exact individuals would have done any differently will all circumstances being exactly the same but the person being arrested having a lighter skin colour.Statistics say otherwise
Amazing what a difference cooperating with police can make.Yet 17 year old white male with a semi automatic rifle who guns down two people is arrested with zero shots in his back
