    Good guy Bern.

    He should pressure his other high-profile stars to match him. And he should pressure his rich ass boss to match and triple him, at least.

    Because like that Chris Rock bit goes, "Shaq is rich. The white man that signs his paychecks is wealthy"

    He's already trying to get his boss to pay more than double that for a bench player. Don't think he's going to push his luck here.

    He shouldn't be giving kids who only want to thug out chances at free rides to school when there are plenty of other kids in America who are struggling themselves financially yet are completely committed to furthering their education.

    It would be better if LolBron ran some functional analytics and gave his money based on kids tests scores, attendance and activity within school (which doesn't discriminate). Not just because of a kids color and because they don't have a Dad.

    TLDR: LolBron is wasting $40mil and is racist.

    Nobody has to do anything with their money because someone else does. This 'pressuring' of to do this and do that in society today because it 'looks good' is worthless.

    Lol @ quoting a misinformed racist like Chris Rock. What does the color of the skin have to do with the guy signing Shaq's checks? He is wealthy because he's white? Or because he worked his ass off or is smart (or both) and earned his money?

    See my other post in regards to LolBron maximizing his $40mil to be used to it's furthest potential. Then I would be all for the "rich white men" tripling LolBron's postings.

    lol @ the unemployed gamer calling a first year Deputy who graduated at the top of his class in the academy with first dibs on patrol and not the jails. Only 4 others got that honor.

    But go on about how you think graduating HS is somehow amazing when there are poor kids all over who are in GATE and committed yet due to many other reasons (won't get into all of it) are unable to get into college.
