You can say what you want about LeBron James as long as its not racist or you might find yourself exposed as a racist cyber bully on the King James Twitter page. This is because after getting attacked online with ethnic slurs following his move from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Miami Heat got sick of anonymous nobodies on the internet bashing him for being black and started re-Tweeting some of their comments such as on calling him "a big nosed big lipped bug eyed ******" tying to hide his "ghettoness".

Now anybody who would be just another random anonymous racist looser on the internet has a shot to get their work published on the Twitter page of an NBA All-Star who is willing to forgo focusing on basketball to give them an audience. Calling out cyber bullies can be good for normal people, but not when you are a celebrity being bashed by stupid people whose comments most people wouldn't give the light of day to.

It should be noted that although some criticism directed at LeBron was racially motivated that most of it came from angry people in Cleveland after LeBron got sick of the Cavalier's management failing to recruit supporting players capable of winning an NBA championship. LeBron's solution was to build a Dream Team in Miami consisting of himself, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh that proved unstoppable in two NBA Finals games. Not bad for his first year with the team.
