J.R. Smith describes fearing for daughter's future after election

Wednesday November 9th, 2016

Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith shared an Instagram photo on Wednesday morning in which he voiced his fears for his daughter's future after Donald Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States.

“How do you explain to this face what happen?" Smith wrote. “You can be a educated women in your field an not get the job because your [sic] a women or cause your [sic] black? How do you say 'go try your best' even though it won't be good enough. How do I even feel confident sending her on play dates knowing the kids family voted for the racist, sexist person and I don't know how they will treat her when she's gone. How? Seriously How? I understand let go and let God! But damn!”

Smith appeared at a Hillary Clinton rally in Ohio earlier in the week, where he urged people to go out and vote. Ohio's 18 electoral votes went to Trump.

Smith's teammate and NBA star LeBron James also endorsed Hillary Clinton ahead of the election.
