For years now, Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has been one of the leading voices in pushing for social justice. Many of his fellow athletes have followed his lead, as more and more have become extra vocal of the cause to fight for equality in the age of divisiveness and disinformation.
On Tuesday night, LeBron posted on Instagram a t-shirt bearing a powerful message about racism, hate, and love.
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his religion, or his background. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

It's no secret that the Lakers icon is behind the More Than An Athlete movement, which encourages people from different sectors to contribute to the battle for social justice. LeBron's initiative also served as an impetus to encourage many formerly disenfranchised people to vote in 2020, which led to the ouster of former POTUS Donald Trump.
It also helps that since joining the Lakers, LeBron has more access to celebrities, who have helped him in his advocacy. There's also his I Promise School, which continues to grow by the year.
If there's someone who knows all about getting hate, it's LeBron. But there's no question that the Lakers leader has done more for society than all those keyboard warriors combined.
