"We are scared as Black people in America." heyrev Junior Member Joined: Aug 24, 2017 Messages: 1,778 Likes Received: 1,908 Aug 25, 2020 #1 Lebron James has spoken publicly--certainly his right. Now that it's public, that statement is open to scrutiny. From my perspective I would not characterize the actions of most people (of any color) stopped or detained by police today as "scared." In fact, most all of these tragic events display resistance. To resist means to oppose or withstand an action. That isn't fear, it is defiance. I will offer that no one can know the deeper motivations that cause an action. But fear most always looks like submission, not opposition. I'm sorry, LeBron, I don't see it like you, nor perhaps do you see the fear that police might experience. You're simplistic view of "scared" victim versus angry policeman doesn't square with me. jjg4sc, SonofGodzilla, CrownoftheValley and 5 others like this.
