LeBron James Calls Ohioans to Vote on School Levy

The universe of hate that is projected at LeBron James is something we are all very much aware of and something we have all become accustomed to.

Whilst these projections can be felt from New York to LA, the center of this universe of hate is certainly Northern Ohio.

That wasn’t enough to deter LeBron James though, as he recently took to the phones to spread awareness and urge people to vote on a tax levy to avoid schools suffering massive cuts.

James described his schooling experience as a blessing and wanted to strongly push the significance of keeping these educational outlets with the funding they need and deserve.

James recorded a message that was dialled out to around 30,000 households. When I think of this it reminds me of that episode of The Simpsons when Homer gets the autodialer and attempts to scam the city for money calling himself ‘happy dude’ and promising eternal happiness for just $1. Obviously this situation is nothing of the same, but that was what first came to mind for me.

This continues a line of work James has participated in with educational charities, as he has previously led and funded read-a-thons and more recently the donation of 1000 computers to Northern Ohioan schools.

Few know the rough childhood James experienced, moving from house to house, sometimes living in a car and always without a father. He was taken in by another family that attended his same primary school, as his mother didn’t want him to suffer because of her life choices. School obviously was a haven and a place of solitude for James in an otherwise tumultuous childhood, which probably is one of the main reasons he is so active in this area.

A spokesperson for the school district reported that LeBron James volunteered to help after the the district urged for people to support.

How can people hate this guy?
