LeBron James Opens Up About His Thoughts On White People.



LeBron James attended the exclusive private Catholic high school Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary in Ohio to hone his basketball skills. He didn’t want to socialize with white people when he first got to high school.

“I was like, ‘I’m not fucking with white people.’ I was so institutionalized growing up in the hood. I was like, ‘They don’t fuck with us. They don’t want us to succeed,' So I’m like, ‘I’m going to this school to play ball, and that’s it … ‘ That was my initial thought to white America.”

He realized the white kids in his class with weren’t as bad as he originally suspected. By the end of the year, everyone was best friends.
“It took me a little while to adjust to it.”
