LeBron James is someone who has always tried to hold other people accountable. Whether it be his teammates, the media, or political figures, LeBron is someone who has always had social awareness. Additionally, he will call it out publically if he feels like it is necessary.
This is especially true in the world of racism and inequality. Consequently, James has been a big advocate for voter reform, as well as anti-racist legislation. LeBron will continue to be a champion for these things moving forward, and we suspect that will carry on after he retires.
LeBron James Calls Out Jerry Jones
Over the last week, much has been made about Jerry Jones and his association with segregation. For instance, a photo came out that depicts Jones among pro-segregation protesters in Little Rock, Arkansas. It was a very bad look for Jones, however, the media didn’t really press him on it.
LeBron James, however, is taking a much different approach. After a win against the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night, James called out the media for their lack of questioning. “But when the Kyrie thing was going on, you guys were quick to ask questions about that,” James said.

LeBron certainly makes a good point as Kyrie was immediately hit with all sorts of criticisms. While those criticisms were most definitely valid, it is odd that Jones was able to escape without the same sort of scrutiny.
