Racism. Sigh.

Just saw this today. In a nutshell, Kobe Bryant was asked how he felt about the Trayvon Martin thing. He didn't reply except to say that if African Americans want to progress as a society, they cannot judge situations solely on the basis of whether or not a person is black.

In return, the "black community" calked for a boycott of his athletic products, because he "doesn't identify with the struggle of our people, because he is from a different country".

Unfortunately later Kobe cowered and Tweeted support for Trayvon.

You know, there's really nothing white people can do or say to make the black community grow up and take life like an adult. It's sad, and somewhat scary.

The problem with race relations is that if you are black and do not agree with the black community, they deem you "not black enough" even if you're three shades darker than they.

There is always some idiot out there handing out labels. Meh! What I don’t get is why so many are so willing to accept the label as truth.

Anyways, I’m still not worried, outraged or scared.

I can't remember who said it exactly, but I remember a black comedian describing ghetto culture as a bucket of crabs. As one tried to climb out, the others will pull them down, while trying to escape themselves. Being a person raised in the South Bronx, that is the most accurate description I've ever heard about ghetto culture.

It will not change, until it decides as a whole, to change. But it won't, because whenever someone decides to change, they're immediately criticized and demonized as not being "ghetto" enough. The only ones exempt from this are hip hop artists, who glorify ghetto culture, while living decidedly non-ghetto lifestyles. As long as they make records talking about bitches, pimpin', rollin' in they 6-4, and smokin' on they level, they're still alright by ghetto standards.

And god forbid you go against the status quo, and be educated, and talk about real issues. Supremely talented rappers like Immortal Technique, Prince Ea, and others, will never gain widespread acceptance by the black community, because they dare criticize Obama, asking why Ron Paul didn't become President, referring to gun rights, and simply not glorifying ghetto culture.

Kobe, unfortunately, is in a position that he has to conform. His career is stalled, he's not getting younger, and his popularity is waning. I feel bad for him, if anything.

Ghetto culture is killing the black/hispanic community.

And to respond to Rugergirl, it's not up to white people to help the black community "mature", it's up to them to do it themselves. White "guilt" only enables them to continue to act they way they do, and further empowers shitheels like Sharpton, Ackson, and those like them. Allen West, Herman Cain, and those like them realized this long ago.

Hall of Fame running black Jim Brown is quoted above from the article and needs to do his research first. Kobe Bryant was born in Philadelphia, PA and went to Lower Merion high school in Ardmore, PA. He's not from a different country. He's an American born in America. Brown is an idiot.

I'm sorry...I worded my thoughts poorly. I guess the picture I have in my mind is a husband who keeps trying everything he can to make his wife happy....but nothing he ever does works, because she has already determined to leave him. He could be the best guy ever, but nothing changes because she determined not to love him.

I feel like it does not matter what whites say or do....they will always be racist, and life will always be unfair to the poor minority crowd.

BTW Herman Cain was awesome. The sabotage of his run nearly killed my desire to even be remotely involved in politics ever again.
