LeBron James on Race in America

Lebron James is speaking out after an unknown vandal sprayed racist graffiti on his LA home Wednesday morning. Police are investigating after the N-word was spray-painted onto the front gate of his Los Angeles mansion before dawn.

The basketball star spoke out Wednesday afternoon at a media event for the NBA Finals in Oakland. He said the crime shows ‘racism will always be part of the world and part of America.’ ‘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. We got a long way to go for us as a society and for us as African Americans until we feel equal in America.’ His family, he said, is safe and that is all that matters. ‘Hate in America, especially for African-Americans, is living every day. Even though that it’s concealed most of the time.’
