And states that race plays a factor in his popularity amongst fans. Just don't think I completely agree.

The first problem is calling LeBron on a "turncoat". He was a free agent, he betrayed nobody.

Alright the whole reason people hate "The Decision" is because it made LeBron seem like an attention seeking advocate.   

When he does stuff like get carried by his teammates and over dramatizes injuries then it just reminds people of the same thing.

Life?

In your defense, parts f California an America have become bizzaro America...

Police are instructed to not mention race/skin color in suspect descriptions.

I would bust into laughter when these wanted messages would come up, and they wouldn't mention the suspects skin color. Height, weight, shirt color, hair style... But skin color!!! Nah! That's racist...
