CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - LeBron James is continuing to speak out in an effort to bring police and the Black Lives Matter movement closer.

James said he just wants the conversation to keep going, in response to the recent police killings.

"It's a scary, a scary a%$ situation that if my son calls me and says he's been pulled over, that I'm not that confident that things are going to go well and my son is going to return home," said James at Cavs Media Day.

James also said not all police are bad and not all kids/adults are great and it's not about color but the more the issue is talked about hopefully someone can come up with a solution for both sides.

"I don't have the answer, none of us has the answer," added James. "All lives do matter, its not just about black or white, it's everyone. It's tough being a parent right now."

According to the Associated Press James says he plans to stand during the national anthem, but he supports San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick's decision to kneel in protest. James said he admires Kaepernick's "peaceful" handling of the situation.

In July, James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade opened the 2016 ESPYs with a call to action regarding police reform and gun violence.
