The Left & Blacks Become Unhinged Over Lakers Kobe Bryant’s Comments on Trayvon Martin Case … He Doesn’t Support Defending Someone Just Because They are Black


The NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant is about to feel the wrath of what happens when you do not go along with the “black/left” company line …

In an interview with The New Yorker, Kobe Bryant discussed his reaction to when members of the Miami Heat wore “hoodies” in Trayvon Martin’s memory saying he admitted he’s not comfortable with the idea of being compelled to defend someone just because they’re black. Trayvon Martin was the black teen who was shot and killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman. After a long, divisive and contentious trial, Zimmerman was found “not guilty” of murder. Although the part of the interview that discusses the Trayvon Martin passages are only available to subscribers, the money lines were reprinted at The Blaze and Mediaite.


Discussing the divisive Trayvon Martin case in an interview with The New Yorker, NBA star Kobe Bryant said he doesn’t support defending someone just because they are black.

He appeared to be referring to the aftermath of the shooting death of Martin. Many people and political commentators seemingly rushed to assume George Zimmerman was guilty of murder before a trial ever occurred. One of the topics discussed was how members of the Miami Heat wore hoodies in Martin’s memory two years ago.

“I won’t react to something just because I’m supposed to, because I’m an African-American. That argument doesn’t make any sense to me,” Bryant said. “So we want to advance as a society and a culture, but, say, if something happens to an African-American we immediately come to his defense? Yet you want to talk about how far we’ve progressed as a society? Well, we’ve progressed as a society, then don’t jump to somebody’s defense just because they’re African-American. You sit and you listen to the facts just like you would in any other situation, right? So I won’t assert myself.”

Who knew Kobe Bryant was a racist? [sarcasm intended].

And the Left & Blacks expressed their outrage on Twitter for one black man’s opinion that color should not be the issue, the facts should. Hmm, you mean support for Trayvon was not racial solidarity, Really? It was a tragic set of events where two people should have never crossed paths, but everything about the George Zimmerman – Trayvon martin case was racial, down the the media doctoring 911 tapes and Zimmerman being referred to as a “white” Hispanic. And there is nothing racial when  the Revs. Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson are on the scene. Add the NBPP as well putting a bounty on Zimmerman’s head. Yup, no racial solidarity before a JURY SPOKE WHAT-SO-EVER.

      Good for Kobe for realizing that the color of one’s skin is not the reason for blindly defending a thug that attacked a neighborhood watch captain on private property.

      This whole case was used by the Obama administration to stir up the inner city blacks. It was race baiting for money and attention.

      I never had much of an opinion of Kobe, pro or con, except for not approving of his running around on his wife. He earned some of my respect today. Apparently he can think on his own. Get the facts before you decide. Gee what a novel idea.

      So Kobe has the insight to perceive the cultural insanity of the day! Good for him! We need more athletes, celebrities and public figures with the brains and moral grounding to understand that right and wrong are not racial issues. Sadly, the majority seem all too ready to fall in line with the antics of ignorant war mongers like the ever so tongue tied Jesse Jackson, who couches his poorly enunciated dribble behind his unearned title of “Reverend.” Too bad the President’s mentality is not aligned with Kobe, but with senior spokesman of the Tower of Babel’s, Rev. Jesse Jackson!
