I agree with LeBron James that sports are a great unifier of different backgrounds and races. He is to be commended for his passion for advocacy of social justice. Unfortunately, Mr. James fails to acknowledge that it was at a sports event where major division was sowed when players failed to stand for the national anthem. It wasn’t President Donald Trump who “kinda” divided the nation along racial lines. He invited all players of the team to the White House.

Given Mr. James’ touted influence with fans on both sides of the racial divide, it would behoove him to get to know “them” on the other side and become a peacemaker rather than give in to the division which seems to work so well for egos like Mr. James’.
