EtcetEraThread Vice: Reporters and Activists Are Being Harassed for Saying Kobe Bryant Was Credibly Accused of Rape (Read Staff Posts)

I know this is a predominantly white forum, so I'm sure this will go over like a lead balloon but we know why it's different. It's ridiculous that people don't seem to be able to even consider why some black people may take a sideways glance at this shit. It's not like there isn't a history in America of black men being completely fucked over and railroaded for even looking at white women. It's not like there is not real historical context for that shit even up to the present. So am I saying he was innocent? Of course not. I don't know I wasn't there, but I know about America's history when it comes to this kind of thing. So yeah while this may be part of his legacy, Kobe meant a lot to the black community and black families, he did a lot for us, and so yeah we will mourn him and feel for him and his family. It has nothing to do with not caring about victims. So keep that white liberal talking point to yourself.
