Kobe Bryant Proud He Didn’t Support Trayvon Martin

Kobe BryantBy Walter L. Hilliard III –


So Kobe “I Really, Really, Reaaaaaaalllly Do Love Myself” Bryant recently accused the World Champion Miami Heat and Black people, collectively, of having a “racial reaction” because we, in his mind, hastily sided with Trayvon Martin over Killer George Zimmerman and didn’t analyze the evidence.


His exact comments were (by the way, where was his agent? somebody needed to stop this train wreck): “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. 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… 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.”


So, in other words, what Kobe “Never Says Anything About The Black Community Unless He’s Criticizing Us” Bryant is really saying is that he believes Black people shouldn’t have supported Trayvon Martin’s cause just because he’s Black — and we need to get our facts straight, first.


First of all, I have watched sports my entire life and I have never seen Bryant say anything about anti-Black racism or any pro-Black cause, but he’s always running off at the mouth to support the gay community. I even saw a picture of him with some gay rainbow bracelet on, pushing their cause, which is really about proliferating Black genocide. All this and he even had to apologize to the gay community for calling a referee a “faggot” during a game.


Thus, Bryant he has no credibility to speak on Martin’s issues – unless he’s begging Black folks to forgive him for “riding free” on the backs of all the Black people that have sacrificed their blood, sweat and tears — their lives — so he can make millions of dollars and sit up in his mansion and talk smack.


Secondly, Bryant is a narcissist, only concerned about “KOBE.” Take for example when he “threw former teammate Shaquille O’Neil under the bus.” Bryant told the police, after he got arrested for supposedly raping a White chick in his hotel room, he should have just did what O’Neil did and paid the woman off  – like a “side piece” is what he really meant.  So Bryant’s also a snitch, but he’s a juvenile delinquent snitch, a second rate snitch because real brotha’s stop telling others that they witnessed stupid “I saw Val kissing Tyrone”- type stuuff in the second grade.


Tyrone from the second grade: Penny, I wasn’t kissing Val. Who told you that?


Penny: Kobe.


And since Bryant needs evidence to make a decision and doesn’t want to support someone because they’re Black (duhhh, like this is what all Black people do?), then why doesn’t he go back to school and learn his history, the history of African Americans suffering for several centuries from racism and oppression?


Additionally, I’m aware Bryant spent part of his childhood in Italy where his dad, former Philadelphia 76er Joe “Jelly Bean” Bryant, played professional ball after his NBA career was over, but I thought every Black child that spent anytime in America, especially brothas, has experienced being racially profiled like Trayvon Martin was, from being followed by security at the mall to be being stopped by the police?


So to understand Bryant’s dumb comments, all you have to do is look past his great basketball skills and millionaire status – which a lot of Black people have a hard time doing – and you’ll see an ego maniac who didn’t marry a Black woman, never speaks out about racism, and even squealed on his teammate, Shaq, about his infidelities when “he”/Kobe was the one that got busted and accused of rape for hooking up with some random White chick who worked at the hotel he was staying at.  in a hotel and accused of rape.  (Man, most brothas making that kind of money would have seen that “slow ball” coming a mile away — calling a random White girl to your room, only to later get accused of rape, huh?).


Bryant is taking advantage of yet another opportunity to single himself out, or distance himself from the Black community regarding Martin’s death, showing the world what an Uncle Tom he is. Why would he degrade Martin’s memory, a teenaged child, gunned down while trying to get home from buying Skittles and an iced tea?


Why? Because Martin is Black and his life doesn’t count, and Bryant likes to appear like he’s “different,” like he’s “better” or smarter than your average Black person. But he’s not – the Black community’s has had Uncle Toms for 400 years. And so he’s just another rich Black athlete with an Uncle Tom mind.
