Letter to LeBron James: It’s Not a ‘Police Problem’

Stop blaming the police and help build better fathers and families.

Dear LeBron,

In your latest celebrity race-bait hate remarks objecting to the actions of police attempting to arrest “that gentleman” Jacob Blake for aggravated sexual assault, shooting him after he fought them and brandished a deadly weapon, you declared, “Black men, Black women, Black kids, we are terrified.”

LeBron, you don’t speak for me and my boys.

I’m a father of four brown boys. It is my responsibility as a father to protect and serve them. There is no need for police in my home because as the father, I’m the authority in my home. Police are needed where fathers and law and order are absent. When there is no father to protect and serve children, police have to move into that community to protect and serve.

Where there is no father or authority in the home or neighborhood, young men rebel. This is why police are having a hard time gaining compliance with fatherless boys on the side of the road. They refuse to sit down, be quiet, and comply. Why? Because the police are the first men to tell them NO and assert their authority. These boys have spent their lifetime under no man’s authority. A failure to recognize and respect authority is a primary causal factor in the violence besieging our urban areas.

You don’t speak for me and my boys. We are not terrified of the police because we respect the police and accept their authority. That’s because my boys first had to respect me as their father and accept my authority. Actually, one of them wants to be a police officer. You, LeBron, are trying to destroy that dream by painting police officers in a negative light when most are good guys.

In fact, what should terrify “Black men, Black women, Black kids” are the black men that kill each other in their black neighborhoods every day. We are afraid of the black men that threaten us for desiring to live a peaceful, lawful, and successful life. We are aware of the fact that almost 90% of all black homicides are committed by black men.

You focus on the handful of white-on-black officer-involved shootings but ignore the epidemic of black-on-black murders, rapes, and violent assaults, choosing instead to adopt the Marxist BLM mantra about condemning police.

If you really want to help fatherless boys like yourself, stop using fear tactics and guilt trips. Stop supporting political policies that enslave black people on urban poverty plantations, promoting broken families.

Start promoting legislation for “Equal Shared Parenting,” which empowers divorced dads and single dads to have more time with their children without paying more child support. Help get legislation passed to make child support more fair and equal. Fund programs like my former #GoodGuys #GoodGirls mentorship curriculums (killed by ObamaCare) to help black youth learn to respect authority, develop a work ethic, and accomplish their goals.

Stop blaming the police and help build better fathers and families. Stop saying police need more training and start training more dads and young black boys on the rule of law and police protocols.

Remember, there are millions of black and brown boys out here that are not being killed by police. They are alive and doing quite well because they acknowledge authority.

With all due respect,

Patrick D. Hampton
