Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James took to Twitter to shed light on peaceful protests.

Disturbed and incensed Americans have responded to the murder of George Floyd, an African-American man who was killed while in the custody of four Minneapolis police officers, in the form of protest. While some of these demonstrations have morphed into riots -- like in Atlanta, Indianapolis and Detroit, to name a few -- there's a large number that have remained peaceful across the country.

As we've seen, the media has devoted almost all of its coverage to the turmoil. While that's understandable, there's also been a shocking lack of reporting on the nonviolent gatherings. Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James took to Twitter to acknowledge this alarming bias by highlighting the functions that have taken place in Colorado.

It goes without saying that almost all news stations are implementing round-the-clock coverage on the disturbing anarchy when, in reality, the bloodless protests are serving a greater purpose.

LeBron hasn't shied away from using his platform to speak out against racism and police brutality in the wake of Floyd's death, and the 16-time All-Star continued countering the media's favoritism, for lack of a better term, by shedding a glaring light on the peaceful efforts in Washington DC.

Let James' posts serve as an example to all those on social media. Share as many clips of harmonious and unified demonstrations as humanly possible. Hopefully, that will allow them to be viewed as newsworthy in due time.
