Bronny James Jr, the eldest son of LeBron James, had the internet in a tizzy last week after posting pictures of him going to his high school prom.
Typical teenagers don’t have to worry about too much. Most are carefree and only concern themselves with tomorrow’s outfit or studying for upcoming final exams. By the end of the year, however, most of their focus turns to one thing – who are you taking to the prom?
When your dad is the most famous basketball player in the world – scratch that – when your dad is one of the most famous people on planet Earth, your life as a high school baller flows a little different than most.
Bronny appears to be fast-tracked for a career in the NBA. Last week he got a little taste of what life will be like when he’s hooping on the game’s biggest stage. After pictures of Bronny’s prom date went viral, folks all over social media chimed in.
Some commenters were upset that Bronny’s prom date was white.
For those unaware, Bronny attends Sierra Canyon School. A private, co-ed, K-12 establishment nestled in the ritzy Chatsworth area of Los Angeles, California. While I’m sure the school does the best it can with diversity, I’m willing to bet there are slim pickings in regards to race when it comes to deciding who you want to date. And even if there isn’t, he shouldn’t have to defend or explain anything about his personal life.
Grown men and women trying to force him to do otherwise is simply out of bounds.

Grown ass men and women being pressed about who Bronny James, a 17 year old, goes to his high school prom with is by far the strangest behavior that I’ve seen from people on here.

Some folks (black folks), will swear they’re not racist and post the most racist shit about Bronny and his prom date. Make it make sense . Racism also has no color. It’s a mind set. If color triggers you, you are racist. Prove me wrong

Very weird to see grown men following Bronny’s prom date on IG and harassing her in the comments to the point she had to limit the comments. These are kids.

Bronny is in a rich neighborhood going to a rich kids school and ya'll thought there would be a lot of black people at his school? He's dating a white girl because there aren't a lot of sistas available people…besides why do you care so much? It's prom not marriage…smh https://t.co/7Ptg9nkrng
