After LeBron James expressed his anti-Trump views on ESPN, Laura Ingraham commented that the professional athlete should keep politics off the court. She brought to point that just because someone is paid millions of dollars to dribble a ball, that it did not qualify them to weigh in on politics through their athletic venue.
Almost instantly the liberal media attacked Ingraham calling her comments, “racist hate-filled bantering.”
She never once addressed James’ race/ethnicity.
Was it racist for Ingraham to tell an athlete to keep politics off the court?
