Reply to "#NoJusticeNoLeBron Trends in Wake of Non-Indictment of Cops in Tamir Rice Shooting"

I don't think its fair to LeBron James, Blacks need to stop looking for a hero we need to band to together across the board. LeBron while meeting his contract obligations can help in many other ways and it also takes the focus off the killers of Tamir Rice and puts the spotlight on LeBron James. It completely shifts the issue from what needs to be in the spotlight. 

Of course Black people need to "band together across the board", which would include LeBron James and each and every Black professional athlete in America.  No, I don't believe LeBron should take this on all by himself, but LeBron James and all other Black professional athletes that dominate in any sport should be, as we speak meeting to plan how they are going to boycott the games or all of a sudden fall too "ill" to play, etc.

During the Civil Rights Movement, the Black athletes, actors, musicians, singers, entertainers, and employees, were "under contract" too; and they boycotted, stood up or spoke out at at time when they were not only chancing their careers, but at a time when doing so could literally get them murdered.

So, LeBron James or any of the other professional athletes, entertainers, actors, [RAPPERS, (especially RAPPERS)] DO NOT GET A PASS for not giving a damn about their own people as they are being executed in the streets of America, especially when/since Black people with far less risked far more to make it where there could even be a LeBron James, et. al.  in the first place.  

Who would LeBron James be, what would LeBron James be doing, how much money would LeBron James have, if they hadn't made their sacrifices or took such dangerous life-threatening chances in the first place?
