As a nation, we continue to mourn the loss of innocent individuals who are getting killed at the hands of police officers. Earlier this week, news broke about the fatal police shooting of 16-year-old Ma'Khia Bryant in Ohio.
Soon after, many people took to social media to voice their opinion. One of them was LeBron James. Los Angeles Lakers star posted and later deleted a Twitter tweet about the killing of Ma'Khia Bryant. Later in a series of tweets, James explained why he deleted the post.
LeBron shared: "ANGER does any of us any good and that includes myself! Gathering all the facts and educating does though! My anger still is here for what happened that lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail! 🙏🏾✊🏾🤎👑"
Followed by: "I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because its being used to create more hate -This isn’t about one officer. it’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY"
