Ruh roh, Kobe’s done it now!

If we didn’t already know that the manufactured-racial outrage machine is chugging merrily away, undeterred by the falling away of anti-black racism over time, Kobe Bryant’s bunny hop through the pea patch of political incorrectness certainly demonstrated it:

When asked about the Miami Heat team photo (taken in 2013) wearing hoodies in solidarity with Trayvon Martin, a black teenager who was fatally shot in 2012, Bryant seemed to criticize their quick support of Martin.

“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, 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.”

The reaction was swift, and mostly critical.

Oh tut tut tut, we can’t have any of that, can we?

I’m a fan of neither basketball nor Kobe Bryant, but it’s refreshing to hear a high-profile black balk at being expected to jump every time perpetually-offended race-baiters tell him to.

Unfortunately, he vaguely back-peddled once the outrage machine kicked into high gear, but props to him for even saying something at once so obvious, and (to many blacks, and to all Leftists) so offensive.
