Kudos to Jason Whitlock For Calling Out The Race-Baiting of LeBron James

Jason Whitlock, in my opinion is the best sports columnist in the United States. And I’m not speaking necessarily about the topics he chooses to write about. Although, that too is commendable. Whitlock’s skill as a writer is superlative and should be recognised for what it is. Especially by those who belong to his race. However, Whitlock is mostly denigrated by so-called ‘blacks’, simply because he chooses to write to the cadence of his own drum.

Jason Whitlock is once again being excoriated on Twitter for daring to criticise LeBron James

Like everyone, Jason Whitlock is wrong on a myriad of topics. But he’s been spot on every time he’s held the mirror out to so-called ‘African Americans’, who are offended by the truth. For that he’s called a coon, an Uncle Tom and ‘Fatlock’, among other more tasteless names.

On Wednesday, NBA superstar LeBron James decided to weigh in on the still unconfirmed video recording of Amhaud Arbery’s fatal shooting. “We’re literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our homes! Can’t even go for a damn 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…..

If It Smells Like A Nike…

“This isn’t helpful.” Whitlock tweeted in response to James. “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 shit-stirring.”

Exactly. But as they say, the truth hurts. And as Whitlock has pointed out of James in the past, to pretend victimhood in a country where he makes millions to dribble a basketball, is laughable. Of course, this tweet also probably came courtesy of Nike Incorporated. After all, Lebron’s branding as a social justice warrior is of paramount importance.

Meanwhile, Whitlock is being excoriated for telling this truth on Twitter. And LeBron’s “stans” are busy crying a river on his behalf it seems. But what’s really sad about all this is that races of people who are so quick to claim brotherhood and togetherness, are all too ready to attack a dissenting voice.

Surely, if Whitlock were to adopt the herd mentality he’d be recognised by so-called blacks for what he is: one of the best in his profession. Instead he’s ostracised, just like Clarence Thomas and Ben Carson; both of whom are historically great “African American” leaders. Do you see the common thread that ties these individuals?

Keep telling the truth Whitlock. Especially when it hurts to tell it.
