Full disclosure. Imma die hard MJ fan but have rooted 4 Lebron to surpass MJ. He hasn't just yet. At this moment in time, I consider MJ a better basketball player than Lebron, but Lebron is a better man. No one has met & surpassed expectations better than Lebron.

Now my dear frat brother Stephen A. Smith has come out & said "there is no way in hell Lebron will ever be better than Michael Jordan in my book." I wouldn't go that far, but consider this: Bill Russell played 13 years & won 11 championships out of the 13 yrs he played.

Lebron has been in the NBA 17 years & been to the Finals 10 of those 17 yrs & won 4. Yes, MJ & Pippen won 6 w/2 3-Peats but could have won out the decade if it wasnt 4 EGO issues w/Bull's ownership & MJ's premature retirement from mental EXHAUSTION. Shaq & Kobe won 3, but-

couldve won much more if it wasnt 4 their egos. Lebron has never suffered from EGO & has overcome EXHAUSTION, both mental & physical (especially in the bubble). There is no denying Lebrons greatness, both on & off the court. Now this by no means makes him Ali, Tommie Smith,

John Carlos or Kaepernick as those athletes commitment 2 the cause is judged historically by how much they sacrificed. Neither made as much money as Lebron & their decisions cost them their careers & tons of money. None of James activism has really cost him anything.

I judge people by how much they sacrificed for the cause & regardless of how much better a man Lebron may be than Michael Jordan, he still peddles shoes made in sweatshops & that black kids in the hood get murdered for. He also was reluctant to speak out on the murder of-

the black child Tamir Rice by a white police officer upon James returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Him & the Heat did wear T-Shirts tho, if U believe that the wearing of attire truly represents activism. James also gave lip svc to Kaepernick but no substantive support-

-until much later. I could go on & on w/other examples where I'm of the perspective that Lebron came up short activist wise, but whatever perspective I might have on this matter, I think we can all agree that Lebron is lightyears ahead of Michael Jordan on social activism.

Now 2 B clear, I am not a person who depends or expects celebrities of any ilk 2 speak 4 me or represent my interests nor do I believe any black folk should. U can never depend fully on celebrity as they will ultimately always serve their corporate interests.

U will only get as much justice from Lebron James, Michael Jordan or any other black celebrity as their corporate interests dictate they can give U. If you think I'm off kilter, try broaching a public conversation w/Lebron about tennis shoes & sweatshops, which is really-

nothing more than legalized slavery. Nevertheless, I am always mindful that the purest water is w/o fish & those demanding purity & perfection from any1 is on a fool's errand. I only ask that the summation of man's deeds be greater than the worst thing they've ever done.

w/that being said, Lebron has passed this standard w/flying colors. He is the epitome of all we can ask for in a world of divided loyalties where morality is an imprecise sport. From building a school to educate black youth to a budding film studio 2 explore racial issues,

Lebron James is taking athlete activism 2 new heights & back on the court I have a sneaky suspicion that over the next few seasons he will not only eradicate any dissent that he is GOAT, but he will do it w/Bronny in tow as the 1st father-son championship duo. Salute.

& now I gotta rush 2 Footlocker 2 get those new Js b4 dey sell out. Hopefully 'Rona aint shut down any of those factories. Somebody tell dem damn Chinese folks 2 get back to work. Us good Americans dont give a shit bout social distancing in sweatshops. We need our damn Js.

Hear me well. Whenever someone qualifies any argument about any issue with their experience, stop them immediately & say "FUCK YOUR EXPERIENCE." The problems of this world will not be solved by people's experience, but by the ability of people to see outside of their experience.
Human beings that cannot see outside of their experience are blind & they will use their blindness 2 make decisions about how your life should be lived, what rules you should lived by, what you can drink, what you can smoke, who U can fuck, how many people u can fuck at one time,
how U raise your kids, how U worship, whether U choose 2 worship, where U live, whether or not U can own a gun, what type of gun U can own, how much ammo U can put in a gun, where U can travel, what U can do in yo house (HOA), whether U can hv an abortion & all other type of shit

Here is a lesson in politics. So KY's AG filed a motion 2 prevent jurors from publicly discussing GJ proceedings surrounding Bree's killing by Louisville police. Lets say the judge rules in his favor. Over right? Wrong. Pause. Switch. Lets go MO.

The Republican Governor of Missouri has come out recently & said no matter what charges the black woman prosecutor of St. Louis brings against that white McCloskey couple for pointing guns a Black Lives Matter protesters, he will pardon them. Fine.

Now, the Dem Governor of KY should come out & state publicly, "Hear ye. Hear ye. Any juror who wants to talk publicly about the Breonna Taylor GJ proceeding, go right ahead. I will pardon you for any charge the AG may bring against U for violating a court order." Ruthless.

Fuck a debate. Red herring. My eyes are still on Breonna Taylor. Working on an open letter to the state bar of Kentucky to open a investigation in2 AG Daniel Cameron. If it is found that he lied 2 the public, he should be disbarred.


Hear me. To the consternation of many of my black friends at the time, I made a prediction very early on that DA Mike Nifong would be disbarred & removed from office giving his politicizing of the Duke LAX case. It was clear from DNA evidence that the accuser was lying.

Tawanna Brawley 2.0. DA Nifong was even prosecuted & convicted & that accuser is now serving time for murder, but not before an entire nation & community was inflamed off some BS. I give equal smoke & the one thing I detest is niggas who lie about issues of national import.

Allow me 2 introduce U 2 Mr. Steve Descano, Common Wealth Attorney (DA) for Fairfax County, VA. It's important to note that he is a DEMOCRAT. It is also important to note that he thinks it's perfectly LEGAL for black people to be treated this way:


Governor of Minnesota where George Floyd was lynched-Democrat. Governor of Kentucky where Breonna Taylor was killed-Democrat. Governor of NY where Daniel Prude was killed-Democrat. Governor of Wisconsin where Jacob Blake was shot 7 times in the back & paralyzed-Democrat.

I could go on&on. Never 4get that Obamas DOJ did NOT prosecute 1 police officer 4 killing an unarmed black citizen & dont get me started on Kamala Harris & Mitrice Richardson. So miss me w/this bullshit that life in America is somehow better under democrats than republicans

Read this very carefully paying very close attention to this:

"Candace Hall said at the news conference that the family had, however, already forgiven whoever committed the attacks..."


I need not know anything about these black people 2 conclude this: they should be kept away from any decision making table involving black liberation. In fact, in my world, I would deny them the right 2 vote & would exile them 2 an island w/a big ass white Jesus statue-

for them to worship. Hear me. Christianity will be the death of black people. I am not a Christian. I am a JESUSian (Jesusian). This means I follow Jesus-THE MAN & not Jesus-THE RELIGION. The fact of the matter, black people in America have always had the wrong Jesus.
