NBA superstar LeBron James loves to push his woke agenda any time he gets the chance. There was the time NBA executive Daryl Morey tweeted out support of Hong Kong and King James said Morey was “misinformed or not really educated on the situation.” Then there was the time he created his own racist hoax.
This time his target was Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. James was outraged that the media isn't focusing on Jones instead of Kyrie Irving. That's right, LeBron accused the media of talking about the wrong racist.
“I got one question for you guys before you guys leave. I was thinking when I was on my way over here, I was wondering why I haven’t gotten a question from you guys about the Jerry Jones photo,” James said. “But when the Kyrie [Irving] thing was going on, you guys were quick to ask us questions about that.”

Well, for one, this issue with Kyrie Irving wasn't 65 years ago. Also, it's a player in the same association, the NBA, as LeBron. And if you still need one more reason there's the part where LeBron and Kyrie were once teammates.
On top of that, the story was covered by the media everywhere in the past few days. You could load up any sports website and you were certain to see a headline about Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
“When I watch Kyrie talk and he says, ‘I know who I am, but I want to keep the same energy when we’re talking about my people and the things that we’ve been through,’ and that Jerry Jones photo is one of those moments that our people, black people, have been through in America,” James said to reporters.
“And I feel like as a black man, as a black athlete, as someone with power and a platform, when we do something wrong, or something that people don’t agree with, it’s on every single tabloid, every single news coverage, it’s on the bottom ticker. It’s asked about every single day.
“But it seems like to me that the whole Jerry Jones situation, photo — and I know it was years and years ago and we all make mistakes, I get it — but it seems like it’s just been buried under, like, ‘Oh, it happened. OK, we just move on.’ And I was just kind of disappointed that I haven’t received that question from you guys.”
