Lebron James typifies the American Dream in spades
Turned pro out of high school to join the millionaires parade
His high school was Catholic billing itself as college prep
Not sure that qualifies for his pronouncements on the world for us to accept
Basketball is a sport that causes almost everyone
To buy $200 a pair shoes made in a country that human rights shun
On China's assault on human rights he seems to ape Rodman's praise of Kim Jong Un
So quick to support BLM issues or condemn racism under any rock
Criticism of China's human rights abuses he's quicker to block
A group wanting to post a billboard touting "Silence is Violence"
With a masked Lebron with a Chinese flag over his mouth must have caused offense
Outdoor Media refused to allow a human rights group a billboard on which to post
Can't insult China who with IP theft, CV, and military buildup wants to destroy us the most
Whose words should America choose?
If Outdoor Media not human rights we all lose
