LeBron James’ SpringHill Co. goes for jointly organizing one-day film festival, gets brutally slammed: “looking like a slave”

The Uninterrupted Film Festival is a one-day event that will be co-hosted by Tribeca Enterprises and LeBron James’ SpringHill Co. on July 13 at NeueHouse Hollywood. The goal of this film festival is to inspire athletes and highlight their narrative talents. Premieres of documentaries, discussion panels after screenings, and debates about the condition of the game right now will all be part of it.

The festival’s goal is to draw attention to the effects of the player empowerment movement, which has inspired athletes to share their personal narratives and start narrative-focused businesses. A forum for many perspectives and narratives will be fostered through the event, which will bring together eminent athletes, filmmakers, and content producers.

LeBron James’ SpringHill Co. co organizes the festival with Tribeca Enterprises

The Uninterrupted Film Festival will be co-hosted by Tribeca Enterprises and SpringHill Co., the production business of LeBron James. The event, scheduled for July 13 at NeueHouse Hollywood, seeks to inspire athletes and spotlight their narrative talents. Premieres of documentaries, post-screening discussions, and lively debates about the state of the game will all be part of the festival.

It aims to shed light on how the player empowerment movement inspired players to share their personal stories and found organizations that specialize in storytelling. Two films will be screened at the festival: “Black Ice,” a documentary on racism in hockey, and “Goliath,” a Showtime documentary about Wilt Chamberlain.

There will be panel talks on a variety of themes with prominent and up-and-coming athletes. A live filming of “The Draymond Green Show” will cap up the weekend. Tickets are required for films, panels, and talks, and there will be a limited number of seats available. Tickets for general entry will cost $40, while student tickets will cost $25. LeBron James himself may attend the festival, but that has not yet been decided.

LeBron’s apparent aversion to white people

Several Facebook postings stating that NBA star LeBron James declared his contempt for white people have received thousands of shares. James did say something to that effect, but the posters have taken it out of context and painted him as a racist who advocates “white hatred.”  The comments in question were taken from “The Shop,” the premiere episode of James’ HBO series, which aired on August 28, 2018.

James stated, “I was all of a sudden like ‘I’m not f***ing with white people,‘” when speaking about his experience enrolling in a high school with a large white student body. Growing up in the hood, I was really institutionalized, and I always felt that they didn’t care about us or wanted us to fail.

Consequently, I declare, “I’m going to this school to play ball, and that’s it.” I don’t want to interact with white folks at all. James was alluding to his experience from 1999 and 2003 as a student at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron, Ohio.

His comments clearly show there to be some kind of aversion from his side, as he faced racism in his early days. Although he does not showcase any of it publicly but there are indications that the earlier incidents have affected him.
