Sojourner Truth once said, “Truth is powerful and it prevails.” Mahatma Gandhi gave it to us like this, “Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment.” Then Abraham Lincoln broke it down like an O.G. in the barber shop full of shorties when he spit, “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”
Well playas…LeBron James pulled the ultimate power move on Sunday when he endorsed Hillary Clinton for President of the United States. Ole boy, in an op-ed piece published in Business Insider, broke down how he’s ridin’ with Clinton because she will build on the legacy of his good friend Barack Obama. Here’s what the 3-time NBA Champion had to say, “I believe in what President Obama has done for our country and support her commitment to continuing that legacy.”
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! This is the type of social activism that we need to see from the duns that have the power that the people have given them. He’s a human being that lives and breathes in this country like the rest of us bruh! So why wouldn’t he know who he’s goin’ to vote for? But to tell a boy who he’s ridin’ with carries a ton of weight especially in a swing state like Ohio!!!
I keep tellin’ you boyz that the dull media keeps underestimatin’ the power of the black pro athlete just like I did in the Hot Joint entitled “Tip” where boyz wanna act like they still have the power to silence them. Well playa…we’re in the world of GUARANTEED contracts now and the game has changed! Boyz could care less as to whether you like them or not!!! So they’re goin’ to tell you just how they feel and you’ve got to eat it or throw it up.
Gone are the days of the Michael Jordan, “I’m concerned about the who buys my shoes and Republicans buy shoes too attitude” because duns like Nike are givin’ boyz GUARANTEED contracts too!! Jordan was the most powerful sports icon to ever live and he’s NEVER used his power to do anything in America but sell shoes!!! Sickening!!!
Ohio is one of the most important states in this upcomin’ election and the most powerful man in that state has put his dominoes on the table. Oh, so you don’t think LeBron’s endorsement of Hillary won’t turn Ohio? You’ve got to be out of your freakin’ mind! Not only did he commit $40 million to send inner city kids in Akron to college but he brought a championship to a city and state that hadn’t seen one in over 52 years!!! He’s the pied piper in Ohio bruh and he’s knows that.
For him to endorse Hillary is huge and responsible! Donald Trump is outta control bruh and people need to rally around keepin “America Safe” instead of fallin’ for the coded “Make America Great Again” foolishness that only means to further divide an already divided country. Keepin’ us safe in the sense that Trump puts us all in danger of war because of his temperament.
Let me put it where the goats can get it. This is probably the most important presidential election of our lifetime and we can’t afford to have a dun win the election on the premiss of hate, divisiveness and lies.
Regardless of your political views bruh, Donald Trump does not foster the hope and moral values needed to lead the most powerful nation in the world. It would be reckless to elect a man that tells the people of America that he was smart NOT to pay federal taxes to support the well-being of the country that he wants to run. Not to mention the other reckless behavior he’s exhibited over the course of the campaign.
Yes, LeBron pulled the power move and the followin’ he has is NUTS! He’s got more than 20 million followers on Twitter alone! That’s power and he’s bein’ responsible with and that’s more than I can ever say about Jordan!!! Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Spit: verb – to say
2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
3) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.
