It is clear by the comments on this topic that none of you actually read Kobe's comments. Those of you that did, you read them from a position of such prejudice that you can not even comprehend what he had to say.
Kobe has a history of being Black only when convenient....
In a rare public appearance since he was accused of rape, basketball star Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa attended the 2003 Teen Choice Awards, where he was picked as the favorite male athlete.
Accepting the award, he said, “An injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere,” paraphrasing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Entertainment Tonight Online reported.
The show was taped Saturday night at the Universal Amphitheater.
Bryant held his fist in the air after claiming his trophy, a multicolored surfboard emblazoned with the words “Teen Choice Awards 2003.” He also won last year."
That has nothing to do with the statement he made? How you gonna be mad at somebody for trying to save his hide? The dude said he does not like to react to things until he has facts. What is wrong with that?
+ it is about the history of that brother, thus the reason for his usage of the Dr. King quote while facing rape charges. He also represents a drastic change in what we are use to from the mind of one of our athletes. Compare him to Ali, Jabbar, Jim Brown, etc...from the 1960's and 70's. Those brothers represented the community correctly. In regards to Trayvon, he simply should have not commented on things that he doesn't care about. What the Miami Heat did was epic.
