A King trumps a Duke (and a Duchess)

LeBron James protests the Eric Garner case

The Eric Garner/Ferguson/police violence protests...the King James version. I guess it's not surprising that a dude they call "LBJ" would act on civil rights. But LeBron James' "I Can't Breathe" protest moves before his Cleveland Cavaliers play the Nets in Brooklyn tonight is even more striking because the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (a.k.a, Prince William and his wife, the former Kate Middleton) are attending the game.

Here's the irony: There were no police killings in Britain last year...none, zero, zilch, nada. Here in the United States...we don't even know. It's a lot. So maybe instead of protesting before the British royals, we should be asking them how they did it?
