In the words of the infamous NeNe Leakes, ‘He said, what he said!”
LeBron James is steadily becoming one of our most favorite athletes off the court. When he’s not opening a school, changing his community for the better and producing thought-provoking content for Black audiences, the newly-minted Los Angeles Laker is using his voice and platform to bring attention to the underrepresented and under-appreciate — and this time it was Black women!
King James hopped on Instagram to show love to the multitude of Black women who covered the September issues of several magazines. Here’s a few of the front page features…
But it was his caption that rubbed many white people the wrong way.
“Nothing in this world is more POWERFUL than Colored Women!! Thank you all for continuing to not settle and setting great examples in life for so many looking up to you for inspiration/guidance and love!! My daughter is watching! #WomenPower”
Find the lie!!!
While we, and many others, found James’ words encouraging and uplifting, there were definitely some melanin-deficient folks who did not feel the same way.
But don’t worry, those hateful comments didn’t get to Bron Bron. He actually doubled down on his statement by posting more magazine covers featuring beautiful Black women and REPOSTED his original comment!!
