LeBron sends message with mismatched black and white 'Equality' shoes
LeBron James once again is using his platform to be socially active
LeBron James has never been afraid to use his platform to speak up on issues he cares about. He's a socially active athlete that has made comments on police violence, race relations in the United States, and President Donald Trump.

While James has always been socially active, he's also been something of a spark for other players to feel that they can do the same.

It's something that many players and the league itself has embraced over the last season.
