‘This 4th of July is yours, not mine’ Lakers star LeBron James sent a powerful Independence Day message FirstSportz

The 4th July is usually a very auspicious and solemn day for the citizens of the United States of America. For several years before gaining independence, freedom fighters and many leaders fought tirelessly against the British government. During the 17th century, the British Empire was the world’s greatest power and attempted to colonize many regions.

This year has been particularly tough for the country after witnessing some of the most brutal killings, shootings and acts of injustice. We all remember the Uvalde, Buffalo and Milwaukee shootings that shocked the entire nation. The struggle for women’s rights, against racial discrimination and a failing government is currently at its peak. Unfortunately, Independence Day never had a happy ending either.

Recently, the African American community has faced severe discrimination. Ten blacks were killed in the mass shooting in Buffalo. The federal agencies classified the incident as a racially discriminatory hate crime. Some other cases, such as the 2020 murder of Breonna Taylor and the police brutality that took the life of George Floyd, show the struggle the community has faced.

There’s a reason black people don’t celebrate Independence Day. During the time of the country’s freedom in 1776, their community was still facing the torments of slavery. At that time, African Americans were often mistreated by the white natives and some were also killed.

LeBron James sends another powerful message on Independence Day

LeBron James was an active participant in social justice movements for the black community. The Los Angeles Lakers forward has been extremely influential in terms of his career status. At 4th on July he quoted a very powerful phrase used in a speech by abolitionist Freddie Douglass.

“These 4th July is yours, not mine,” he said in a tweet after actor James Earl Jones quoted Douglass’ speech given on July 5, 1852 in New York. Sadly, Freddie Douglass was born into the cruelty of slavery. He escaped where he was enslaved and became an important social reformer. The NBA, along with LeBron James, has always encouraged community growth and is proud to do so.
