    Today I read about a lot of the rioters from Wednesday having already been charged with Fedeal Crimes related to their actions this week.

    I wonder if LBJ will comment about the swift arrests and Federal charges? How long, if at all, did it take local authorities in Minnesota and Portland to arrest and charge looters and rioters?

    Trump is still in office...CNN reports all five died from Covid...twink Cooper blames Trump for slow endorsement of masks...twink Lemon blames Trump for slow rollout of vaccine...Fredo blames his brother as the reason why he is slow.

    "We live in two Americas," James said Thursday following the Lakers' 118-109 loss to the San Antonio Spurs. "And that was a prime example of that yesterday, and if you don't understand that or don't see that after seeing what you saw yesterday, then you really need to take a step back -- not even just one step, but maybe four or five, or even 10 steps backwards and ask yourself how do you want your kids, or how do you want your grandkids, or how do we want America to be viewed as? Do we want to live in this beautiful country?"


    4 steps, 5 steps....wait, maybe 10 steps

    bro what the fuck are you even saying? Dude is an SNL skit when he wades into this stuff

    I think you have to give LeBron a break. He had just played in Charlotte and left the city saying, "We live in two Carolina's."

    I didn't watch a second of the restart last season and haven't watched a second of this season. It's more than likely I will never watch the NBA ever again. The race bait and messages on the court and uniforms was enough for me to not support a bunch of millionaires who complain how bad they have it. Walk down any cities skid row and then tell us how bad you have it. Fuck them...…...

For NBA players, Pop and Kerr, everything turns to race. I assume they don't like Americans drinking black coffee either. Just a guess.

    So, are they saying they wanted more violence Wednesday to quell the riot so it would appear like the cops don't like white people like they don't like black people? Is that their view? If so, doesn't that go against what they stand for?

    What's with these dudes?

    I think it's simple. These players have money, fame and followers so they feel the need to inject their opinions but they just aren't very educated on the topics which is obvious when they speak. Their followers love the talk but to the rest of us we go "huh?" Why do Pop and Kerr inject themselves? They have no choice. With a league full of African American players, they can't stay silent. They will lose their teams.

    I'd like a reporter to stand up to LBJ and ask him some difficult questions regarding race but we all know that isn't going to happen. In summary, some situations require great detailed analysis and thorough thought to figure out. This isn't one of those. This is easy. These guys aren't educated. Act as if they are and the mob follows them because of their influence, fame and money. In reality, most of these guys barely made it through High School. Why do people listen to them again?
    LeBron is wrong. We live in One America. The American people are not divided. We are united and we are stronger than ever. Make America Great Again.

    The police in Minnesota walked around neighborhoods shooting people who did nothing wrong. The police at the Capitol watched one of their own get murdered and would not arrest anyone for that killing.

    Are you in agreement with the things LeBron said?

    No police officers were shot, heaven forbid murdered like they did at BLM rallies. No police cars set on fire, the police were not hiding in their station with a mob outside trying to set the building on fire.

    Democrats applauded, espoused, encouraged mob rule when the police or republicans were being attacked. Now they act like it's the end of the world. Fuck those lying losing hypocrites
    And when all the riots were happening (Trumps win for presidency and BLM) democrat leaders encouraged to keep "fighting" and protesting (even during covid spikes, lockdowns etc) Yet they believe this was domestic terrorism and act so appalled? When business were being looted and destroyed, lives ruined but those actions were only encouraged?

    The same people chanting "Defund the police" are now saying "why didn't the police stop them?"

    Once protestors came into their house/place of business they acted terrified, but they are expecting us all to be ok with protestors doing whatever they want? (insert McCloskey story and most BLM "protests here)

    Geez they are insane.

    I don't understand how they can have the hypocrisy / audacity to say what they say. Any person with a shred of human decency and pride simply can't behave in such a manner.

    And it's compounded by the fact that our criminal corrupt colluding always lying democratic media carries their narrative for them

    What happened in DC was wrong, as was the behavior they encouraged and ignored all summer long. They've been ignoring such Obama defended civil unrest in Ferguson, called police officers systemically racist and said a street thug could have been his son.
