Notorious race hustler Jesse Jackson has finally taken advantage of the media attention surrounding the war of words between NBA superstar LeBron James and Fox News host Laura Ingraham, just as he has done with so many other such situations throughout the years.
Late last week, during a monolog on her primetime Fox News show, Ingraham told James to “shut up and dribble” after he claimed President Donald Trump “doesn’t give a f*uck about the people.”
Not surprisingly, James has said he will continue to “talk about what’s really important.”
Securing his 5-minutes in the limelight of this media cycle, Jackson stressed the importance of even more professional athletes, specifically NBA players, continuing to speak out on “injustice” and against President Trump.
“No one told David to just play his harp and not stand up for his people,” Jackson told the AP on Monday. “No one told Samson just lift weights and not challenge the Philistines. They told Jackie Robinson, ‘Just play baseball.’ He told them, ‘I’m a man with dignity first.’ They told Dr. King, ‘Go be confined to the pulpit.’ He said, ‘I must speak peace to a troubled world.’ In that tradition, King James, LeBron, his slam dunk for justice is needed. We thank him.”
Jackson went on to claim it is professional athletes ‘duty’ to speak up when confronted with inequity or wrongdoing.
“When Trump is attacking the FBI and covering up for the KGB,” Jackson continued, “LeBron’s voice is needed.”
Previously, Jackson has spoken out on other public conversations involving LeBron, like when Jackson claimed the Cleveland Cavaliers had treated James like a “runaway slave” after paying James more the $60 MILLION before he decided to sign with the Miami Heat in the summer of 2010.
Ohio High School Football Players Reinstated After Suspension For Entering Field With Thin Blue Line, American Flags
Why were they even suspended?
Two Little Miami, Ohio high school football players who were suspended from their team for entering a game while carrying the Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line(commemorating firefighters) flags have been freed from suspension, after community members expressed outrage at the punishment of the two young men.
Jarad Bentley and Brady Williams had been given an indefinite suspension from the Little Miami High School football team for carrying the two flags onto the field before a game, apparently violating a rule against political symbols. The two seniors reject the notion that they were making a political statement, and one of the boys had spoken of his intention to honor first responders, such as his own father, on the anniversary of 9/11.
Two Little Miami football players pay the price for civil disobedience. They were told not to carry onto the field thin blue line and thin red line flags at their 9/11 game. They did anyway. The school has now suspended them from the team indefinitely. #ThinBlueLine #ThinRedLine pic.twitter.com/19y9GAvaxr

After concerned parents and community members organized a protest event to stand with Williams and Bentley, the Little Miami School Board reversed its decision, freeing the senior players from suspension.
The President of the school board seemed keen to establish that the institution “supports police,” perhaps feeling the pressure from angry parents displeased to see the patriotic young men kicked from the football team for an innocuous display of patriotism.

They still might face some consequences, and reportedly team officials had commanded the players not to enter the field with the flags. Their punishment will be settled within the athletic department’s code of conduct.
College and high school sports teams put on elaborate displays in support of the left-wing Black Lives Matter movement all the time. Pro-police and firefighter flags are not a political statement by a long shot. This suspension never should’ve been issued in the first place.
