NBA superstar Lebron James is taking a political stance in his organization, as he now seeks to fight GOP-backed bills that restrict voter access. CNN is reporting that they seek to fight these strict election laws that could make it harder for people to vote.
Dan Marcia of CNN reports, “The political organization founded by NBA superstar LeBron James and a host of other Black athletes and artists will kick off its post-2020 work with a focus on the wave of Republican-backed legislation aimed at restricting voter access in the wake of the latest presidential election.”
“More Than A Vote will use the 2021 NBA All-Star Game in Atlanta to draw attention to recent efforts by Republican lawmakers in Georgia to make it harder for people to vote by pushing for restrictive election laws. The group is kicking off a campaign named Protect Our Power, which, in addition to fighting these laws in states across the country, will look to mobilize Black voters in off-year and municipal elections.”
Minister Farrakhan has taught us the importance of black people coming together to build something for ourselves, The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has also warned us that their political system is not to be trusted. So, establishing our own political machine is very important also in order to ensure our needs are met.
“The new program will be punctuated by a new ad campaign voiced by James himself, in which the NBA icon argues that the success his group and others had at registering and turning out voters during the 2020 election led directly to Republicans looking to make it more difficult to vote.”
This is a step in the right direction, and hopefully, the ultimate goal will be to establish our own political party that can give our people the best solutions.
