The NBA has seen a sharp decline in popularity due to its over-the-top politics.
As the face of the league, LeBron James has played a big role in the league’s push into politics.
Now James is doubling down on his “woke” activism by producing one documentary.
LeBron James announced that his production company, SpringHill, will be producing a documentary with CNN about the Tulsa race riots of 1921.
The film titled Dreamland: The Rise and Fall of Black Wall Street tells the story of bloody race riots against the black community of Greenwood after a black man allegedly assaulted a white woman on an elevator.
The relatively obscure story recently came back into the public consciousness after the HBO series Watchmen revolved around the massacre.
While the country is beset by rioting and looting carried about by far-left radicals and opportunistic criminals, now seems like a tenuous moment to dig 100 years into America’s dark past.
James has constantly ripped Donald Trump and said, “He will not divide us,” but James has been one of the most divisive characters in America.
James said to his tens of millions of followers on social media that it was “open season” on black people in America.
He suggested that racist killer cops wake up in the morning with the intent of “getting” a black suspect.
Also, James’s silence was deafening when someone in Los Angeles attempted to execute two police officers sitting in their vehicle.
Luckily, both officers survived.
James has sown deep division in the country, and that’s carried over to the NBA.
The league made a deep commitment to Black Lives Matter, a Marxist organization, much to the consternation of basketball fans looking for apolitical fare.
Fans were also subjected to leftist slogans stitched on the backs of players’ jerseys.
It’s no wonder the NBA Finals saw a 70% drop in ratings compared to last season.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver said the league would be moving away from the overt messaging, but it could be a case of too little, too late.
As for James’s documentary, it will be interesting to see how the story is told.
If the documentary argues that racism in 1920s Tulsa mirrors present-day America, rest assured the film is a piece of propaganda.
The story of Black Wall Street should be told, but not with the agenda of diving and destroying America, which is the stated goal of the radical Left.
