NBA superstar LeBron James for the Los Angeles Lakers responded Thursday to the riot at the US Capitol.
James was clearly upset and distraught after the events on Wednesday and Breitbart reports that “[i]f those were my kind storming the Capitol, what would have been the outcome? And I think we all know…we already know what would’ve happened to my kind if anyone would have even got close to the Capitol, let alone storm inside the offices, inside the hallways.”
Breitbart also reports that, “[c]ommon police crowd dispersal methods such as tear gas, pepper balls, pepper spray, and flashbangs were used against the Capitol protesters the same way they have been used against BLM protesters all year.”
He claims that because of what happened, we clearly live in “two Americas.” To be honest, I agree with him.

James makes a great point but we have lived in two Americas for the past four years.
This has consisted of constant arguing and bickering from both sides of the political spectrum, and we have been divided by racism.
However, James’ comment calling the African American community “his kind” is not helping the situation.
If we are to heal the racial divide in America, members of Hollywood and famous athletes need to start using the phrase “One Nation, under God” rather than phrases that are clearly divisive.
