Lakers’ LeBron James Is ‘Terrified’ About His Life Away from Basketball

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has his own fears and he is even terrified about his life. The three-time NBA champion is trying to make a change. He fights for social justice and blasts those who shoot innocent people.

A great number of African-Americans died at the hands of the police and LeBron is fed up with the situation. These problems have made the biggest headlines in the past years. NBA players have used their platforms to raise awareness and seek justice. LeBron is restless in his efforts to get answers and he won’t stop here. It’s time for action, and LeBron uses his strong social media presence to call for action.

LeBron’s words carry big weight. There are too many deaths in this country and the situation doesn’t seem to improve. Millions of people have been protesting against social injustice.

LeBron James is terrified for his life

The Lakers superstar once again voiced his concern about social injustice after a video surfaced of Jacob Blake’s death. The African-American is paralyzed from the waist down after receiving eight shots in his back. A police officer shot him from behind on Sunday evening after he tried to get in the car. Blake’s kids saw the whole thing.

LeBron voiced after Monday’s match against the Blazers that the Black community in the US is terrified because of the “unknown factor” when it comes to treatment from police officers.

“I know people get tired of hearing me say it but we are scared as Black people in America. Black men, Black women, Black kids, we are terrified. Because you don’t know, you have no idea. You have no idea how that cop that day left the house. You don’t know if he woke up on the good side of the bed, you don’t know if he woke up on the wrong side of the bed.”

According to LeBron, the police officer should have used other means of detaining the man before shooting him.  LeBron spoke in the name of many African-Americans in the country. It’s time for the manslaughter to stop.
