America, Lebron James, United States discussed on WAOK Programming


James? I wanted to make a comment tours will know the conversation going on in the United States. I'm wondering I wanted to. I say they suspect that the United States and America two separate entities. So saying that slavery happened within the people involved with the forming of the United States. No. In today's time to get paid is for the people who were here originally to get paid any types of flows without being compensated for what has taken place in most likely this money paper trip. Most of today's time all white people. They're comfortable Pammy. Is that All Saints? And that's the reason why the bin is in many Europeans that came over after the conquest of the French the British and the other nations that come along Witten, those hardworking people, which you might be from best up those people can was but majority of these come from stock of people that concrete and cube the natives here, which are black people because we're not black. We're been miss called terms and agreements have been made by other nations as far as how to La Land is this with fusion up America days spoken on new schools came to the drawing board at taught history as it is for people has separate schools. I respect games in this nation as nations of people small nations things we're actually before because we understand who you are and rice we have here, which is only ship over everything. So I can understand why they'd be a compromising position. No. But I have no hatred towards the west on on because I don't feel that people should pay for the actions of others. Even if it's family because everybody has their own mind, but today's times so that's not in the heart of today's United States to change anything what they've done to America and to America's which are copper colored people. James? Thank you for the well educated phone call. I appreciate the insight from Illinois. Mike in Atlanta, Georgia here on the Saturday night healed show. I do a Michael I'm doing good one video is actually on YouTube. But what he said. Real quick, take your in her mind of all black people. Did you hear that your ancestors were slave it kinda messes up your view of America? You kinda feel like it hurts you any obsession that you know. And that's probably what James is thinking of bread. I have to kind of disagree with him because some of those billionaire owners black people, you know, I don't know. Some of them may think like a flavor, but. Them help out those basketball players and changed their lives, and those guys it can never be compared to flavor flav didn't have a choice. These players have a choice now. Apologize. I don't think. So because the be honest with you, we never got an apology for four hundred years of slavery. So why should he now for politics? I agree. My thank you so much for the call in Atlanta. Matt in Cleveland, Ohio was sitting on ninety two point three FM here on CBS sports radio. Matt. Go to the Lloc or Yoshi in Illinois. You're on the Saturday night. He'll show how you doing bud. First time caller, this topic is very interesting. First things first I wanna say, I applaud LeBron James not only the way I agree with him. I applaud with him reason being is most people most coach, let's talk about cabernet most coaches are scared to even talk to him hence white group. And even lions they thought about it because of the repercussions if they can get fired. Thank God James is in a position. He's not only player. He's greatest player of his era. So he has no repercussions. Nobody can such right now. Right. So I applaud him for speaking out because. We we had we cannot forget guys. We cannot forget why this hosting started capper Nick there was officers killing on armed teenagers that happen to be black. And we're getting away with it so much that in Chicago, Illinois officer just got convicted of murder, so guys I do understand you keep saying it's two thousand and eighteen thousand in nineteen what our president it just got elected. It's slogan was make America great again now as a minority as a Mexican American. What am I supposed to think of that? Where a president is literally shutting down the government. So he can build a wall. So big keep people that look like me out of here. Even though he's an immigrant and his wife is an immigrant. So I kinda I we had we have to be understanding because my question not have two comments the previous callers that happen to be African American. They say that doesn't compare. We'll guys they have a job. Yes. But if they were to speak up they capture Nick did. And they didn't even speak up. He just sat down don't get fired. And they wouldn't have a job. Yes. They're making millions. But the owners are making billions it's only fair to get paid millions. Right. And Secondly chief I have to ask you you say that you'll be the modern day. Abraham LINCOLN of slavery was going on right now with slavery is not going on the white privilege is ever so prevalent right now. Ever so prevalent. So what would you do what are you going to do against white privilege? I don't wanna put you on the spot. But what if anyone, hey, I'll I'll comment on that and Yoshi thanks for the call familiar. I appreciate everybody's opinions tonight. We did the show when Gregg Popovich brought up white privilege, and I said, okay. The privilege. I give because of my skin color. Is that I grew up in a very racially diverse inner city neighborhood. Morning into a family that divorced early. My father went back to Minnesota. My mom, my brother and me at three in one single, mother, welfare food stamps blocked cheese. Moved. Seven times and ten years, whatever the rent would get past two months do and I'm trying to figure out the privilege. On. My elementary school. I think whites were close to minority I know the high school I went to his closed junior. High was closed. I didn't move to a suburb school, and I will say that the privilege is having the ability to live in a place where you can see light at the end of the tunnel. Well, that's not white privilege. That's any preference. Spanich black white Asian anybody in America. An antibody who comes into this country legally and wants to chase the American dream. It's there it's not an easy process and always doesn't work for all. But I the white privilege thing that. What I? Man. I I don't get it. I worked my rear off. I went through a tough time, you know, twelve thirteen fourteen especially thirteen fourteen when I realized that was poor mom had a Chevy station wagon that a screwdriver started it and we'd go down to the K mart. Not hide play down in the back seat. Because I didn't realize I was poor. I didn't see color on my little league team had. Lot of Hispanic kids black kids white kids. When I moved to a suburb school as a sophomore in high school, Sparta Michigan. There was one black guy. It was Dennis Hayes. Running back on the track team. The only guy could really listen to my Rick, James and parliament. And. Gordo's house and again only black guy in the school. So is that a product of society or just where you live and where you grew up is a socio economic. I I really think poor has no color there is no privilege when you're poor because all your white, and we're going to take care of you because you're white and poor. You're going to have a better chance than the black or Hispanic or Asian kid who's poor no way. No way there is there is no fast pass. At the poor amusement park. There's not. And I've lived it, man. I had to go to a body shop, and it was in my old neighborhood. And I just drove around after stop by the body shop where I grew up in. I looked at the homes, and I looked at where I lived, and I looked at where I'm at forty.
