    I won’t react to something just because I’m supposed to, because I’m an African-American,” he said. “That argument doesn’t make any sense to me. 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.”

    I was just thinking the same thing just b4 I saw your comment.


    Yes Kobe, someone stalked a defenseless young man, no one should have to tell you to come to his defense and to make sure it doesn't happen again.

    I feel your frustration. I don't care for toms either but I don't feel you can manifest that type of energy towards a brother no matter how jacked in the mind he is. I feel your passion you wanted to hit somebody. I say take that energy and show brothers like this why they're wrong and make them feel small in the process.

    With that said i totally get your point here sometimes you want to see a reality check cashed. Unfortunately some will die with ignorance as pride.

    I know, right? What a hypocrite. I don't remember once him saying, "Nah, wait til y'all hear ALL the facts. DON'T defend me because I'm african american."

    As a black man, he should know better. He knows or SHOULD know it's often done this way, that is "immediate defense", because in a white ruled nation, being black means immediate guilt. After years of black men and women and CHILDREN being punished for what they didn't do, HE SHOULD KNOW BETTER THAN TO SPEAK LIKE THIS.

    Even if that's how you FEEL, keep your mouth shut and don't throw your peeps under the freaking bus just to make caucasians feel better. Because NewsFlash Kobe, however much you dance for them, and stroke their egos, YOU'RE STILL BLACK AND THEY DON'T FORGET IT. Neither should you. Just sayin'.
