Two Blacks Discuss this Month in Racism [Language warning]
Complex City Guide ^ | March 31, 2014 | Lauretta Charlton, associate editor and Julian Kimble, lead writer

City Guide's Lauretta Charlton and Julian Kimble tackle the most controversial headlines about race that made the news. This month's discussion includes Lord Jamar, Kobe Bryant on Trayvon Martin, interracial dating and Kanye West's Vogue cover story.

[NBA star Kobe Bryant told the New Yorker that he "won't react to something just because I'm supposed to, because I'm an African-American," referring to the Trayvon Martin case. Critics argue his comments are out of touch with reality and downplay the existence of racism.]

Lauretta: Okay. One thing: If you are going to chime in about people making judgements too quickly, you'd do well to at LEAST spell the kid's name correctly. I'm referring to his follow-up tweet, in which he misspelled Trayvon's name. Really, Kobe?

Julian: That shows you how much of a sh*t he gives. Cue "These Are Our Heroes."(continued)

Long, rambling and unfocused, just as I expected.

Couldn’t finish it and couldn’t figure out exactly what they were trying to say.

The silly “cussing” got in the way too.

My comment is, ‘I couldn't even finish reading this drek’. I wanted to so I could hear another side of the issue but it wasn't another side; it was just garbage. There's nothing substantive in what I read.

I can figure it out: if you're black, you're supposed to react as though all blacks are innocent and it is racism that paints them as guilty.

Two ignorant idiots talking in an echo chamber. They can't stand the fact that other black people have different opinions. All black people must stay on the plantation and think a certain way. They can't have black people who think for themselves.

I found it especially enlightening when the discussion came to the topic of a black woman dating an Asian man. Julian ridiculed the Lauretta and kept saying “swirling”.

If one didn’t KNOW a black couldn’t be racist because “blackness” is an automatic prophylactic, you’d almost think it were possible.
