Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James responded Wednesday to questions about the racist graffiti that was painted on his gate at his home in Los Angeles. James was speaking during media availability in Oakland a day before Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
“Hate in America, especially for African-Americans, is living every day,” he said. “Even though it’s concealed…it’s alive every single day.”
“No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are … being black in America is tough,” James continued.
