#NoJusticeNoLeBron: People Are Calling on the Ohio Native to Boycott NBA Games Until Tamir Rice Gets Justice

The football players at the University of Missouri inspired change, so people are arguing that King James can, too.

Social media has been on fire ever since word came down that the police officer who shot and killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice would not be indicted. An Ohio grand jury made the decision Monday, and people immediately began passing around the same tweets and putting up the same social media posts that proclaim Black. Lives. Matter.

There have also been marches scheduled across the nation to protest the grand jury’s decision. But a particular call to action involves NBA superstar LeBron James. James is from Ohio and plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers, so folks think that his involvement in the protest would strike a hard blow to the heart of America—especially since we’re knee-deep in the NBA season.

They want James to boycott NBA games until a federal prosecutor brings an indictment against the officer who killed Rice.
