Honestly, I don't take white people's opinions or criticisms of black people seriously. From birth black people will be vilified and in death, from past to the present and the future. Black people aren't given the luxury to be given a full bio but merely a description. So despite all the accolades, the philanthropy, community work and dedication to his family, Kobe is simply a rapist according to my white co-workers. This has happened on numerous times throughout history, from Martin Luther King, to Patrice Lumumba, to Malcolm Shabazz, to Michael Jackson, Neilson Mandela etc.. I'm not saying all these people are perfect or without transgressions but most times great black people are unfairly criticized and judged. One of the worst parts of this accidents were the very young children on board, including Kobe's daughter. The fact that people still finding a way to drag this guy and his family is shameful and quite frankly inhumane. Black people should never take white people's criticisms on black people seriously.
