    LeBron James is Wearing Shorter Shorts to Be a Better Role Model for Kids

    *"Growing up in Akron, he has seen the effects of poverty and a lack of education."*


    With all due respect to Mr. James and ALL my American neighbors, there is no lack of education in Akron.

    What does exist in Akron as well as many other cities, towns, villages and neighborhoods, is America's expanding and shameful **National Epidemic of Childhood Abuse and Neglect*, *Poverty**, that for more than two generations has deprived untold numbers of American kids from experiencing and enjoying a fairly happy American kid childhood with *Safe Streets* to travel and play on, is primarily responsible for filling our prisons with depressed, angry, frustrated teens and adults.

    *Child Abuse and Neglect* that is primarily responsible for populating our prisons with depressed, angry, frustrated, undisciplined, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults full of resentment for irresponsibly being introduced to a life of hardships and struggles.

    **Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect** that often leads depressed, sometimes suicidal **(NY Times May 18, 2015 - Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers)** children to develop into depressed, angry, frustrated, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults lacking empathy and compassion for others, though needing to vent their pent up negative emotions, often causing emotional and physical harm to peaceful people...instead of venting their anger, resentment and pain on the immature single moms and/or dads who introduced them to a life of pain and struggle by irresponsibly building a family before acquiring the practical skills, **PATIENCE** and means to successfully raise and nurture a developing young child who matures into a fairly happy responsible teen and adult.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/19/h...-children-surged-in-2-decades-study-says.html

    Is social commentator Jaye DeBlack incorrect about his assessment of many SINGLE MOMS and how they are emotionally harming a substantial population of our nation's children by irresponsibly building families out of selfishness instead of caring and love between two committed adult partners?

    Not seeing a correlation between short length and child neglect and abuse.

    "LeBron James wants to influence younger athletes to dress more professionally on and off the court. ... to the size of his uniform as well as his pregame and postgame attire.".

    LeBron James is Wearing Short Shorts in an Effort to Change the Way Younger Athletes Dress

    Hello, Papa.

    Whether you or anyone else agrees or disagrees, it is my opinion that Mr. James is attempting to send a message to his fans, many of whom are victims of Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect, aka Poverty to respect themselves by presenting a more professional appearance on and off the court.

    Apparently the undertone of Lebron's words and actions is "leave the ghetto style behind and join mainstream America."
