LeBron James and Barack Obama have been lambasted by a former NBA player, Royce White, who called them “the go-between to the black community." The 31-year-old expressed his frustration over the duo’s silence on the mistreatment of Uyghur Muslims in Chinese concentration camps.

Speaking on the ‘Free Game Sports’ podcast, White said, “LeBron James was given a billion dollars by Nike – the establishment, the anti-human neo-liberal, Marxist, globalist establishment – which is also the church of the LGBTQ. He was given this billion dollars to keep his mouth shut about the single greatest humanitarian crisis of our generation. And that is the 2 million people being placed in the concentration camps in China for no other crime than being Muslim.”

White also noted that Nike’s payment to James was “to shut his mouth,” before asserting, “And the quid pro quo is you are the new house negro.” He then went on to state that the 37-year-old basketball player is a “radical materialist,” and he and Obama are “black bourgeoisie sellouts."

“They are the go-between to the black community, They are the ones that are going to negotiate the terms of our social contract with the establishment from now until whenever,” White added.

“This is the dude who thought the team should make special arraignments for him because he was scared to fly. It’s always the underachievers that have so much to say.

In our own communities degrading ppl but he wont speak on that China has set up Police stations in the US. I dont hear him fighting against that China owns USA but we dont speak on it."
