[McMenamin] LeBron James ended his news conference tonight by asking the reporters present why he had not been asked about a photo of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones that surfaced showing him, at age 14, standing near white students who were blocking Black students from entering school.
"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. But when the Kyrie thing was going on, you guys were quick to ask us questions about that....
"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. 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."
It was a fun year!
Repost 😔 A man was voluntarily helping Nacogdoches County Sheriffs with an investigation into a series of thefts. This man was willing to show the sheriffs messages on his phone from someone they were investigating. The Sheriffs however chose to brutally assault the man and unlawful seize his phone from him.
My husband sometimes makes fun of me when I accidentally use American English words instead of British English (because that's how I learned it at school). What typical British English words should I get into the habit of using?
Edit: Thanks to all of you! I'm sure my husband will be surprised that I probably now know more insults than he does.
