“another black man being targeted”: LeBron James calls for Justice for Jacob Blake’s shooting

Earlier this week, LeBron James voiced his strong opinion on Twitter about the shooting of Jacob Blake, stating “another black man being targeted".


On Sunday videos surfaced from Kenosha, Wisconsin, of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, being shot seven times in the back by a police officer as he tried opening his car door while ignoring the responding officers. His four children were reportedly in the car when the shooting occured.

In a simular press release released by CBS News, LeBron James said 'We are scared as Black people in America' – Yes, we can definity tell that by all the chaos – causing, destruction-filled riots that have caused numerous deaths and loss of livelihoods throughout the country.

Perhaps peacefully protesting would, oh I don't know, lead to peaceful conversations about ways to improve in our societies? 

Fighting fire with fire never ends well for either party  involved.

Like in this situation, where you think walking away and ignoring police officers while they have guns on you, opening your car door and reaching in and expecting this NOT to happen?
