"It´s Always a Race Factor," LeBron Said

 

The former Cleveland Cavalier´s star player opened up in an interview as to why he thinks as much backlash has been dealt after his decision to head to Miami. So what is Mr. James´ diagnosis? Racism.

Maverick Carter, James´ business partner and friend, sat with the ball player during the interviewer and added, "It definitely played a role in some of the stuff coming out of the media, things that were written."

Finally, they indicated that the hour-long show they did announcing the move may have played a role. "The execution could´ve been a little better, and I take some of the blame for that," stated Carter.

  Race card is getting old  
 
You know what, it´s LeBron James´ decision what he wants to do with his life. If he wants to play in Miami that´s his prerogative. Cleveland is just mad they are losing THE BEST player they have had in a long time. In spite of that, I don´t think race has anything to do with this. Of course, you are naturally going to have your racist pricks that will make stupid comments. However, this whole "race card" crap is getting way too far out of hand. If Dirk Nowitzsky got traded, nobody would care or say "It´s because he´s a white guy." How can you say you want equality, but every time you don´t get your way you pull the race card? That is very child-like.

  race  
 
is an outdated term.

Of course, ethnicity would be more fitting term. Just like you wouldn´t invite a jew/muslim to pork roast, without alternatives. Ethnicity does have a role, somewhere.

My point is of course ethnic groups may differ.

And before and anyone gets antsy, I´m am commenting on a social matter, and offering one perspective.
I prefer to share discussion and leave room for other perspectives.
