    true you’re right. Lebron do be trying to do too much with all that political talk . It’s obvious he made a mistake but it’s stupid to see everyone act like they care so much when In reality it’s all for clicks and views
    Most people aren't disappointed because LeBron chose path A or B. Because he didn't. He straddled the fence and gave a half hearted response. He should have kept quiet

    He also should not have called Morey "misinformed". But possibly the worst part was days after he was asked for his thoughts on the backlash (jersey burning etc) and his answer was he hasn't been paying attention

    Just total up. He would have been better off avoiding OR going hard with Path A or B. Instead he just outed himself as simple minded hypocrite.

    Which comes across as hypocritical when he so loudly voices and makes sure everyone hears his other opinions, just like Pop.

    TBH, he never even addressed the China situation “I’m not discussing the substance”. He only addressed the act of Morey’s tweet. Other players at least said it’s a tough situation and acted like they’d at least give it some thought because they can sense how it might have bad optics. Lebron was too smug to even utter a word about it. He said “other people can talk about that”.

    Muhammad Ali he ain’t.

    It's sad to see Hong Kong uphold their ban on gay marriage, with what's going on with mainland China one would think the people of Hong Kong would be more tolerant.

    UPDATE 1-Hong Kong court upholds ban on same-sex civil partnerships


    HONG KONG, Oct 18 (Reuters) - A Hong Kong court upheld a ban on same-sex marriage and civil union partnerships on Friday after a lesbian identified as ‘MK’ launched the city’s first judicial challenge on the issue, stating it violated her cons utional rights.


    Rights group Amnesty International described the judgement as a “bitter blow” for LGBT+ people in Hong Kong.


    “Sadly, the discriminatory treatment of same-sex couples will continue for the time being,” Amnesty said in a statement.


    The Court of First Instance ruled that the government was not obliged to provide an alternative legal framework such as civil unions, giving same-sex couples the equal rights and benefits enjoyed by opposite-sex married couples.


    The court said that, while there are diverse and opposing views in society, it expressed “no view on the ociated social, moral and/or religious issues” and that it had adopted a strict legal approach to the matter.


    sexuality has been decriminalized since 1991 in Hong Kong, a former British colony that returned to Chinese rule in 1997. The city has an annual pride parade and lively gay scene.


    It does not, however, recognise same-sex marriage and LGBT+ activists voice concerns about widespread discrimination. Hong Kong’s top court in June ruled in favour of a gay civil servant fighting for spousal and tax benefits for his husband.

    China already built that wall. Have your people camp out there instead of around Laredo.

    If China takes over Hong Kong it will go from not being allowed to be married to being executed.

    "We want to stand with Morey, we want to stand with Hong Kong, but most of all, we want to fight foreign attempts to censor us," an organizer told ESPN.
