#BlackLivesMatter Activists Want LeBron James TO GO ON STRIKE OVER TAMIR RICE

hi-res-fe467f82e49dd872c50e501c5f9525e6_crop_northUsing the hashtage #NoJusticeNoLeBron, #BLM activists are calling on LeBron James to sit out until “the DOJ imprisons the murderers of Tamir Rice”.

From The Root:

Social media has been on fire ever since word came down that the police officer who shot and killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice would not be indicted. An Ohio grand jury made the decision Monday, and people immediately began passing around the same tweets and putting up the same social media posts that proclaim Black. Lives. Matter.

There have also been marches scheduled across the nation to protest the grand jury’s decision. But a particular call to action involves NBA superstar LeBron James. James is from Ohio and plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers, so folks think that his involvement in the protest would strike a hard blow to the heart of America—especially since we’re knee-deep in the NBA season.

They want James to boycott NBA games until a federal prosecutor brings an indictment against the officer who killed Rice.

This effort is apparently led by Islamic Monthly columnist Tariq Toure, who posted the following flyer on his twitter feed.

    LOL… I’ll be amazed if Lebron is foolish enough to join in this.

    That said, I don’t watch basketball anymore. Haven’t since around 1995 or so. Won’t affect me in the slightest so knock yourself out.

    Better yet, why doesn’t the BLM demand the Kardashian family to lend their significant power, wealth and popularity to this cause. The Kardashian family has a vested interest in Black men. In order to force the authorities to file charges against the two officers, all the Kardashian would have to do is threaten the worldwide media with a boycott. The Kardashian family would not post a single photograph in any media stream for one day. This threat may cause the internet to shut down along with all of the media dependent upon them. That selfless act would bring attention and provide change that we could truly believe in!
