LeBron James says “Black people in the community don’t believe that their vote matters” in new interview

In a new interview with USA Today, NBA star LeBron James has some provocative things to say about Black people’s votes being “muted.”

In the interview, the Los Angeles Laker says “Black people in the community don’t believe that their vote matters.”

He adds “We grow up and don’t think that our vote actually matters. It doesn’t. We’ve seen recounts before. We’ve seen our voices be muted our whole lives.”

Explaining his new “More than a Vote” organization, James says “A lot of people, including when you get to the NBA, still have those same things that haunted you when you were younger.”

He explains “My goal is to change that and to educate not only my peers, but their communities as well to let them know that our voice is being heard. Our vote is being counted.”
