Description

LeBron James called out the black crab-barrel problem, where many of us don't like it when one of us makes it. On CNN's "Unguarded with Rachel Nichols", LeBron openly talked about the problem when Rachel asked him about reports that some have not been kind to him as he became famous. That was when he said that not being happy with someone else's fame is "a problem - especially in the black community. We hate to see someone on top. We'd rather see them down with 'The Struggle'. We can't be happy that someone made it." How right King James is. That problem masks the fact that many of us are millionaires and billionaires, techies, coders, nerds, and everything else that some other person thinks we can't be. LeBron James is right on, or as my Mom would say "too-too!" Stay tuned.
