I guess white liberals think all black people must think alike and must support the same issues.

What Did Kobe Bryant Say About Trayvon Martin that has Liberals Shocked?

Mr. Bryant is entitled to his opinion just like any other citizen. I am a citizen as well and IMHO Mr. Martin was murdered by a man that picked a fight that he was loosing.

What do white Liberals have to do with this ?

Even your quote talks about the Miami Heat and Jim Brown. And while there are white Basketball players on the Heat team, we do not know their ideology, nor where they mentioned by name.

He just said that people shouldn't assume that all blacks will support someone just because they are black and the blacks that do that should perhaps look in the mirror.

He was recently criticized by Jim Brown for not having the attitude of blindly supporting someone just because of color.

Jim Brown did not criticize him for not blindly supporting something, he criticized him for not even understanding the situation.

Kobe Bryant makes it seem like people are only defending martin because he is black and that isnt true. We are defending him because we believe he was murdered.

What made you cut Kobe so much slack?
Why not the same opinion, when it was someone else, not of his stature?

Not true, if he were white, we wouldn't hear a peep from blacks.

Please. You and the media knew very little of the facts, yet on day one you were calling for this guys head. Media people and other clowns wearing hoodies, the CBC weighing like morons as they usually do, Hollywood idiots getting involved giving out addresses hoping people take "action", the New Black Panthers putting a bounty on someones head.

The fact is, people and the media already made their decision on day one, before knowing much of anything. I was guilty yet more cautious at the beginning. I sided against Zimmerman until I knew more. The evidence that is out there and that came out in court was not even close enough to show he murdered Martin. The jury saw it this way as well.

But dont worry liberals. Once Kobe received a backlash from the typical whiny idiots, he has already changed his tune. What a coward. I guess knowing most of his fans are bunch of race obsessed morons is more important than his real feelings on the issue after all.

Bingo. And the fact that they relied on calling Zimmerman a WHITE hispanic is more proof. You wouldn't have heard a damn word from any of these people had Martin been white. Nothing, zip, nada. Their reactions absolutely were race based, because that is what they always focus on. Yet, WE are supposedly the racist ones....

The only liberal outrage towards Kobe that's out there is from a crappy blog that is claiming liberals will be outraged.

You can accuse liberals of being soft spined and policy windsocks, but perpetual outrage is the stock and trade of the talk radio/FOX News crowd.
