LeBron James' I Promise School in Akron, Ohio debuted to rave reviews from an adoring media a year ago. Renowned for his thunderous basketball dunking and social justice warrior exploits, he plunked out $600,000 to help taxpayers start this unique school for at-risk third- and fourth-graders, along with a $1 million donation for a gym. On Wednesday, a poet and cultural critic named Hanif Abdurraqib wrote about the day he visited the school, and his story on Bleacher Report reveals the school's emphasis on self esteem and unorthodox teaching methods.
It's not enough that the LGBT-indoctrinated media are waving the rainbow flag in everyone's faces and crowing nonstop about the U.S. national women's soccer team winning the World Cup. Now one of the team's major media allies, Outsports, is going after Jaelene Hinkle, a Christian and one of the best defenders in women's pro soccer who refused to be a part of the national team's overbearing LGBT crusade last year.
Calling Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson a "house negro," The Shadow League sports blogger Carron J. Phillips is criticizing older African-American luminaries for supporting President Donald Trump and disagreeing with the Democrats' radical politics.
Trans SBNation writer Kim McCauley waved off all objectivity in her first sentence, admitting she's "an unabashed fan" of the World Cup champion U.S. women's soccer team. Her post, "Why the USWNT's open queerness matters", confirms what's been obvious throughout the duration of the World Cup, by the team and its media friends: the U.S. team is a bastion for queer hope and a vehicle for LGBT+ pride.
Suddenly labeled by media as "Captain America," Colin Kaepernick has saved Nike from making a huge mistake and commanded an apology from a minor league baseball team in Tennessee that realizes you don't tug on Superman's cape. Numerous sports media reported on these two developments this week, driving home the point that a man of Kaepernick's immense social justice stature is not to be disregarded or toyed with.
A photo of the radical protégé of Colin Kaepernick, pro soccer player Megan Rapinoe, is being hailed as the new version of the symbol she detests: the American flag. Courtesy of Robert Mayes, staff writer for The Ringer blog, who tweeted a photo of Rapinoe celebrating a goal at the World Cup slugged "the American flag now."
Throughout this month Michigan State University's public radio station WKAR has aired portions of an interview with Jemele Hill, former ESPN SportsCenter anchor and current writer for The Atlantic.

The LGBT blog Outsports and transgender athletes are ridiculing high school girls in Connecticut and their Christian lawyers who filed a Title IX complaint with the Department of Education Office for Civil Rights over the state's transgender policy. Dawn Ennis calls their legal counsel, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a "hate" group.
Ever wonder why professed Christian superstar athletes Russell Wilson and Stephen Curry go along with the politically correct progressive flow instead of holding true to the Christian worldview? That's because speaking openly about one's faith can be extremely hazardous to a Christian athlete's career, as Australian rugby player Israel Folau found out earlier this year. Especially minority Christian athletes. Folau was stripped of his $4 million contract for becoming, as the Saturday Paper reported, '‘the first athlete to be sanctioned for his religious views'’.
It's been 51 years since American sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos protested with a black power salute on the victory podium at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. Smith just turned 75 this month, and the more time goes by, the more he is revered by those on the Left. Ricardo A. Hazell, senior contributor to The Shadow League blog, toasted Smith as a "legend" and an honored member of the academic community.
In an Outsports Exclusive, the LGBT publication tries to make the case that male transgenders dominating women's sports events really have no physical advantages over female foes. There's just one problem with the agenda-driven story: CeCe Telfer is a NCAA Division II national champion in the 400 meter hurdles.
Since the Memorial Day controversy in Fresno when the Grizzlies minor league baseball team showed a video depicting Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (shown speaking at the 2019 Women's Rights March in New York) as an "enemy of freedom," the Fresno Bee has published multiple stories on the controversy which conveniently skipped right over the socialist firebrand's ideas for eroding many of the feedoms that Americans have long enjoyed.
