'Racism Will Always Be A Part Of America': LeBron James Responds To Racial Vandalism

A Los Angeles, California, home owned by LeBron James was found spraypainted with the n-word Wednesday morning.
The graffiti, which has since been covered up, was written on the front gate of the residence in L.A.’s Brentwood neighborhood. Detectives are currently investigating the hate crime and are looking for security footage from neighbors which may show the perpetrator.
According to TMZ, records show LeBron James bought the house back in 2015 but he no longer seems to live there and was not in the house when the incident occurred. He is presumably in the Bay Area prepping for the Cleveland Cavaliers’ showdown against the Golden State Warriors for Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday.
Back in February of this year, James received the NAACP Jackie Robinson Sports Award during the 48th Annual NAACP Image Awards.
