Watch Lebron James' Powerful Response After His Home Is Vandalized With Racial Slur — 'Hate In America Is Living Every Day'

LeBron James

LeBron James had an emotional and powerful response after his Los Angeles home was vandalized with a racial slur a day before the NBA Finals.

ICYMI, police are now investigating the incident as a hate crime after the n-word was found spray-painted across the front gate of the athlete's Southern California family home in Brentwood.

On Wednesday, the father-of-three took the opportunity to shed light on how racism in America is "living every day," no matter who you are or how much money you have:

"As I sit here on the eve of one of the greatest sporting events that we have in sports, race and what's going on comes again, and on my behalf and on my family's behalf. But I look at it as, if this can shed light and continue to keep the conversation going on my behalf, then I'm okay with it. … It just goes to show that racism will always be a part of the world, a part of America. Hate in America, especially for African Americans, is with them every day. Even though it's concealed most of the time, people hide their faces, say things about you. When they see you, they smile in your face. It's alive every single day."

Donald Trump may have a weird friendship with the NFL's biggest star, but the NBA isn't nearly as easy to win over.

Specifically, LeBron James and Stephen Curry, who both slammed the President's travel ban and praised those who were speaking out about it!

The Cleveland Cavaliers all-star slammed Trump's executive order while accepting the NAACP's Jackie Robinson Award on February 1, noting that "diversity is what makes this country so great."

Not only did James win the NBA championship with his Cleveland Cavaliers, but the athlete also donated $2.5 million to the Muhammad Ali exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. On top of that, the ball player also announced he'll be an executive producer on an HBO documentary about Ali, and has spoken out about gun violence on multiple occasions.

Though we LOVED last year's pick of Serena Williams, the Cavs star's selection is pretty special too because it's the second time he's been honored with the award. Tiger Woods is the only other person to ever have won the award twice!

Rapper Jay Z presented the All Star athlete with the award as LeBron began his speech saying:

LeBron James & A Few Of His Cleveland Cavalier Teammates Are Boycotting Donald Trump's Hotels!

no title

You know your country is in trouble when its basketball stars have stronger principles than its politicians.

According to ESPN, Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James and a few of his teammates are boycotting Donald Trump's New York City hotels following the surprising election results on November 8. The news comes on the heels of many celebs and concerned citizens denouncing the Trump family brand.

Per the report, the Cavaliers' management had scheduled the team to stay in Trump Soho in downtown Manhattan on Wednesday night.

While the president-elect technically doesn't own Trump Soho, he lent his name as a part of a licensing deal. This essentially means Donald still reaps profits from the establishment.

Following LeBron's refusal to stay in the failed businessman's hotel, the Cavs' manager David Griffin revealed he had made other arrangements for the "group that wants to be elsewhere".

Well, we're glad Griffin listened to the concerns of his players. It sets a nice precedent for other teams!

As for LeBron, we're glad he's sticking up for what's right. We can't imagine anything less from a voter who was with Hillary Clinton from the very beginning!

So, what do YOU think of the athlete's boycott?

Justin Bieber Was Offered $5 Million To Perform At The RNC — And He Nearly Took It! Find Out Who Stopped Him HERE!

no title

This is wild!!

The GOP offered Justin Bieber $5 million to perform at an event during the Republican National Convention last week, and he nearly took the deal — until his manager Scooter Braun threatened to quit over it!!

The Biebs, repped by talent agency CAA, would have had to perform for just 45 minutes one night last week at a venue not even at the RNC's main location in Cleveland, and this by far would have been his biggest payday ever.

Apparently, Republican officials and the promoter who pushed the deal told Justin the event was "not political," and the Biebs was going to get the $5 million up front (!) without having to endorse Donald Trump or anything like that, but thankfully, smarter heads prevailed in the Bieber camp

While it would have been the Sorry singer's single biggest payday EVER, manager Braun — who is a big Hillary Clinton supporter — was NOT feeling it.

The event promoters told Justin he could not
