Royce White Calls Out Ja Morant Over Strip Club Remarks
Former NBA player and social justice advocate Royce White has sparked controversy with a recent statement in which he criticized fellow player Ja Morant for his remarks about strip clubs and Black Lives Matter. White argued that Black people cannot claim to support the movement for racial justice while also engaging in behavior that puts themselves and others at risk.
The comments have sparked a heated debate about the intersection of race, policing, and personal responsibility. While many have praised White for his stance, others have criticized him for “respectability politics” and for placing the burden of responsibility on Black individuals rather than addressing systemic issues.
The Intersection of Race, Policing, and Personal Responsibility
At the heart of the debate is the question of how to balance individual choice and accountability with the larger societal factors that contribute to racial disparities and police brutality. While personal responsibility is important, it is also essential to acknowledge the systemic inequalities that create barriers to safety and success for marginalized communities.
The controversy over White’s remarks highlights the complexity of the issues at stake and the importance of continuing to engage in difficult conversations about race and justice. It is only through open and honest dialogue that we can hope to create a more equitable and just society for all.

Royce White calls out Ja Morant
“This is not something that black people should be onboard with. We can’t cry about ‘Black Lives Matter’ and the police using fatal force and shooting us in the streets but we drink alcohol at the strip club and play with a gun.”
