Careful, Laura. Your racism is showing.

Recently, Fox News host Laura Ingraham put her racism on full display when she defended NFL quarterback Drew Brees for his comments regarding “disrespecting the flag” by kneeling in peaceful protest — a move coined by fellow NFL quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, to protest police brutality in the United States, something that is still clearly running rampant in this country.

Ingraham’s defense of Brees is bad enough in and of itself, but it just gets worse when we’re reminded that the Fox host infamously bashed NBA star, LeBron James, two years ago for making public political comments — ultimately telling the basketball star, during a segment on her show The Ingraham Angle, to “Shut up and dribble.”

“It’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball,” Ingraham said of LeBron. “Keep the political comments to yourselves… Shut up and dribble.”


However, despite her nasty past comments towards James, the Fox News host was all too happy to jump to the quick defense of Drew Brees’ white ass on her show.

The NFL player recently found himself in hot water when he publicly criticized the act of taking a knee in protest.

“Well, he’s allowed to have his view about what kneeling and the flag means to him. I mean, he’s a person. He has some worth, I imagine. I mean, this is beyond football, though. This is totalitarian conduct. This is Stalinist,” Ingraham stated in regard to Brees’ “opinion.”

Booooyyyyy… That’s big racist, lady.

And LeBron James, upon catching wind of Ingraham’s sudden change of heart when a white guy is involved, was quick to let her know what he thinks about her 180.

“If you still haven’t figured out why the protesting is going on. Why we’re acting as we are is because we are simply F-N tired of this treatment right here! Can we break it down for you any simpler than this right here????” James captioned a tweet of the video. “And to my people don’t worry I won’t stop until I see CHANGE!!!”

Yesterday, the basketball superstar also shared his thoughts on Drew Brees’ “opinion” about kneeling in peaceful protest:

Look, Laura… If you’re going to be a racist piece of shit, at least hide it a little better than that, mkay?

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
