Diamond and Silk: LeBron James, Other Athletes Teaching Young Black Men ‘How to Be Cowards’

During a Friday appearance on Friday’s “Fox & Friends,” YouTube stars Diamond and Silk criticized LeBron James and other professional athletes for kneeling during the National Anthem or supporting the protest, saying they are teaching young black men “how to be cowards.”

“Look at the fact that Kim Kardashian, she put aside her personal differences and went to the table,” Silk said of the reality TV star meeting with President Trump to commutethe prison sentence of Alice Johnson. “You know, imagine just for one moment, imagine if LeBron James would stop shooting off at his mouth and did the same thing.”

She continued, “Just simply imagine if the NFL players would stop kneeling at the flag and do the same thing. LeBron James and a lot of these others are teaching men, especially our young black men, how to be cowards.”
