LeBron James Says ‘Blacks Are Hunted EVERY TIME We Go Outside’ Amid Ahmaud Arbery News, Sports Journalist Jason Whitlock Accuses Him Of ‘Sh*t Stirring’
Sports journalist Jason Whitlock isn’t here for LeBron James’s reaction to the murder of a man named Ahmaud Arbery.
Ahmaud Arbery’s story went viral on social media Wednesday (May 6), after video of his tragic and devastating murder was released. Ahmaud Arbery was an unarmed black man jogging in Brunswick, Georgia when a white father and son, Gregory McMichael and Travis McMichael confronted him. Unfortunately, Ahmaud Arbery was killed by a shotgun allegedly fired by Travis McMichael.
L.A. Lakers star LeBron James was one of the thousands of celebrities who expressed their frustrations and disgust over the incident.
LeBron James wrote,
“We’re literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our homes! Can’t even go for a d*mn jog man! Like WTF man are you kidding me?!?!?!?!?!? No man fr ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!! I’m sorry Ahmaud(Rest In Paradise) and my prayers and blessings sent to the…..heavens above to your family!! #StayWoke #ProfiledCauseWeAreSimplyBlack“
“This isn’t helpful. It’s twitter trolling. It’s using this man’s tragedy to build a brand as more outspoken than Michael Jordan. There are all kinds of ways to draw attention to this tragedy. Suggesting that we are hunted everyday/every time is just sh*t-stirring.”
“Do u believe we r hunted every day, every time we step out? It’s ridiculous, unsophisticated hyperbole that promotes fear/emotion. Fear is the enemy of common sense, enemy of rational behavior. LeBron’s tweet doesn’t promote justice. It promotes emotion. Emotion improves nothing.”
