Texas judge candidate allegedly catalyst of shameful ‘racist’ lie that LeBron James was eager to perpetuate

Those who profess to wish to see an end to racial division in the United States have a nasty habit of ending up being the ones perpetuating it. Such was the case when none other than basketball star LeBron James promoted the apparent tall tale of a race-baiting Texas judicial candidate.

Lesa Pamplin is a criminal defense attorney out of Fort Worth, Texas running for the position of judge in Tarrant County Criminal Court No. 5. She also happens to be the godmother of Duke Volleyball player Rachel Richardson who recently garnered national attention after alleging a fan in the stands at Brigham Young University (BYU) had heckled her with racial slurs throughout the match.

“My Goddaughter is the only black starter for Dukes volleyball team,” Pamplin posted to Twitter on her account that is blocked from public view. “While playing yesterday, she was called a n*gger every time she served. She was threatened by a white male that told her to watch her back going to the team bus. A police officer had to be put by their bench.”

The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra snagged a screen capture of the post and included it with James’ reply that came shortly after without questioning the veracity of the story. The basketball player wrote, “[Lesa Pamplin], you tell your Goddaughter to stand tall, be proud and continue to be BLACK!!! We are a brotherhood and sisterhood! We have her back. This is not sports.”

Warning: Language

Saavedra also included the findings of the Salt Lake Tribune which BizPacReview had reported on that detailed BYU Police Lt. George Besendorfer’s findings that “When we watched the video, we did not observe that behavior from him,” specifying the fan who had been ejected from the event over the alleged racism.

A mega thread by BYU alumnus André Hutchens recounted the series of events that seemingly started with Richardson’s claims during the game but didn’t truly garner attention until Pamplin had made an outcry about the alleged incident.

Hutchens pointed out statements made by BYU athletics, BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe, BYU women’s volleyball coach Heather Olmstead, and even Utah Gov. Spencer Cox (R) who had called the suspect, who evidently only Richardson heard, a “racist a**hole.”

The alumnus even included the television footage of each of Richardson’s serves in his thread and concluded, “I do not believe that [Rachel] Richardson made up her initial claims during the game. But once her godmother decided to take this story public, and embellish the allegations from what Rachel had initially reported, this story took on a life of its own. And by then Rachel decided to play along. She wasn’t going to throw her godmother under the [bus].”

However, the denizens of Twitter were more than happy to oblige on that count as, though private, it wasn’t long before an extensive number of racist tweets attributed to Pamplin were collected and shared for public consumption.

Speaking of pots and kettles, as with Pamplin, James has a history of attributing racism to others as he did when he explained his reasoning for hating Boston by stating, “Because they racist as f*ck, that’s why.”
