Candice Owens, who many are hoping could be America’s first female African American presidents in the future had some sharp words for Lebron James about his comments about racism in the United States.
Owens, the author of a new book entitled “Black Out: How Black America Can Make Its Second Escape from the Democrat Plantation” said that socialism and marxism is not about education black people, but instead, indoctrinating them and said she has little sympathy for successful black Americans like Lebron James
“No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, being black in America is tough,” James said in 2017 after vandals defaced his home. “We got a long way to go for us as a society and for us as African Americans until we feel equal in America.”
Recently, James said he wanted nothing to do with white people growing up.
“I went to an all-white high school, Catholic high school, so when I first went to the ninth grade in the high school, I was all of a sudden like ‘I’m not f-cking with white people’,” James said. “My whole, I was so institutionalized, growing up in the hood, it’s like ‘they don’t f-ck with us, they don’t want us to succeed’ […] So, I’m like, ‘I’m going to this school to play ball, and that’s it. I don’t want nothing to do with white people, I don’t believe that they want anything to do with my—it’s me and my boys, we going to high school together and we here to hoop.’ So that was like my initial thoughts and my initial shock to, like, white America when I was 14 years old, for the first time in my life.”
Owens said the NBA star who often talks about his rough upbringing and racism he faced as a black man growing up was able to overcome all of that and be successful in America, despite his narrative that the “white man” is keeping people of color down in the country.
Lebron James lives in a one hundred million dollar mansion in Bel Air,” Owens said. “I always say, if you’re suffering through racism, please give me some of that. He’s got a White gardener, a White chef, all various White people that work for him, White driver, so if that’s racism, LeBron, please, please share some of that with the rest of us.”
