Jason Whitlock hammers LeBron.
Blog King, Mass Appeal
LOS ANGELES — Former Fox Sports writer Jason Whitlock labeled LeBron James a “bigot” on Tuesday after the Los Angeles Lakers star lashed out at police officers in response to the Jacob Blake shooting. Whitlock, who recently quit as host of “Speak for Yourself,” penned an editorial on Outkick.com accusing LeBron of promoting racism. He also called the 4-time MVP the “Al Sharpton of Sports.” In case you’ve been asleep the past few days, Rusten Sheskey — a white police officer — shot Blake (who’s black) seven times in the dorsum in front of his three children.
The sanguinary ordeal transpired Sunday evening in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
It was also captured on video.
After undergoing emergency surgery, Blake remains sedated in ICU. But doctors confirmed he’s paralyzed from the waist down. It should be noted Blake resisted arrest and you can make a strong argument he attempted suicide by cop. He also has a long rap sheet plus an outstanding warrant.
Rumor has it he was armed with a knife.
That being said, Blake didn’t deserve to be shot execution-style.
Prior to telling reporters we’re “scared as black people” when it comes to the police, LeBron vented his exasperation via Twitter. “And y’all wonder why we say what we say about the Police!! Someone please tell me WTF is this???!!!” he tweeted. “This sh*t is so wrong and so sad!! Feel so sorry for him, his family and OUR PEOPLE!! We want JUSTICE!”
Whitlock, however, believes LeBron is full of sh*t for playing the victim card.
“I’m black. I’m not scared,” Whitlock wrote.
“I’m not terrified. Neither is LeBron James. He’s lying. He and the political activists controlling him want black people to immerse themselves in fear [which is] a tool used to control people. If you comply with police instructions, there is virtually no chance of an American citizen being harmed by police.”
“LeBron James has more than 40 million followers on Twitter,” Whitlock continued.
“Doesn’t he have a moral responsibility to be informed and measured before commenting on a controversy that could inspire civil unrest? What’s the harm in waiting 48 hours, 72 hours or a week? As a black man, that sort of racist tactic should be terrifying… Bigots, regardless of color, have a common trait: Ignorance. Ignorance fuels their ego. Information is their enemy. They avoid it at all costs. Negative anecdotes frame their worldview.”

Whitlock then went on to say that “good and bad police officers want to put handcuffs on [criminals] and politely escort [them] to jail… That’s the goal.” He also said the criminal justice system was concocted by left-wing legislators such as Presidential candidate Joe Biden, Vice President running mate Kamala Harris and quondam President Bill Clinton.
“I’m referencing Democratic politicians because LeBron James and his disciples seem to believe the Democratic Party is going to save black people from the ‘systemic racism’ found within the criminal justice system,” Whitlock explained.
“It’s a joke.”
Do you agree with Whitlock?
Is LeBron a race baiter?
Are Democrats playin’ black folks for a fool?
Watch Whitlock get in LeBron’s ass.
