During the week Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James had his home vandalized by racists who spray painted the word “n*gg*r” all over the exterior walls. LeBron responded with an eloquent speech on how being a black man in America is hard to live in even for someone as wealthy as he is.
“No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, you know being black in America is tough,” J”And we got a long way to go, for us as a society and for us as African-Americans, until we feel equal in America.”
On Thursday afternoon, FS1 host Jason Whitlock went on the Colin Cowherd show to blast LeBron James for his remarks and explained why James is too rich to complain about racism in America.

Several athletes criticized Whitlock for his stance including outspoken Packers tight end Martellus Bennett.
