LeBron James continues to speak out against the racism that affected his family in the lead up to the NBA Finals after the Cleveland Cavaliers star was forced to respond to a hate crime carried out at his Los Angeles home on Tuesday night.

Police are still investigating the spray-painting of a racial slur on the front gate of his property but James has already reflected on the incident and his place in America’s dialogue on race.James spoke at length about the incident as well as racism as a whole in America in an interview with reporters on Wednesday, but he also sat down with ESPN’s Rachel Nichols for an exclusive conversation that was published later in the evening.

Much of his thoughts echoed what he said to the media as a whole, but the most striking quote was a moment where James spoke about the true meaning of equality.
