Kobe Bryant

Recommended Posts

Anyone find the media coverage hugely biased towards certain black people? 

I have always wondered why the mainstream white media of the USA and Britain. Gives great exposure to black sports athletes, black musicians ect, but lacks the same for brown athletes and any other races. It's almost likes black people are held on some kind of pedestal.

Many white and media types love to heap praise on black people in the media. Is it down to some kind of love affair with their African brothers? I personally feel it is more to do with their religion. Many blacks particulalry in the USA are loved by whites for one reason only. Their faith. If Kobe Bryant was not a staunch Catholic who did not attend church. Would he get the same kind of praise from the white dominated Christian media? Would he be backed even though there was some controversy over his past with the law. 

Blacks are generally accepted more then other races. Here in the UK and USA due to their faith. If they were not Christian and did not have English names. I wonder if the media would be so kind and full of praise for black media types of they were not of that faith.

I recall the boxer Anthony Joshua comming other much criticism and condemnation when he visited a mosque. The white British loved him. Untill they found out he may be into Islam. Then suddenly he was not as popular with media and general public as before and started getting criticised more. 

The media didn't like to admit it but they favour their own faith people over others.

Fact is British Asians and other ethnic groups will never be accepted more then blacks due to their faith being non Christian.

Their fear of black people -- subconscious or otherwise -- also plays a part in what you're describing. Salman Rushdie wrote an article about this aspect of race in the West (he describes how white racists assume South Asians are easier targets than blacks because of the assumption Indians and other South Asians are weaker), a few years ago before the intense scrutiny of identity politics was a feature in social commentary. He got blasted for it back then. I can only imagine what the reaction would be if he wrote something similar in the current era.

Its cringe worthy. Its like he was some kinda mahan sant baba kobe or something. Ye he was only a talented basketball player and probably a nice person who lost his life in tragic circusmtances thats all he was not person who should be showered with praises like a sant and worshipped like the fudhu's have been doing for the past few days. Same thing happened when nipsy hustle died these low IQ chavy white girls started talking about him in social media like he their daddy and our own punjabi fudhu's came did the same. Its really embarrassing for their community when people do that whole culturally appropriating over a dead person of another community who they usually didnt know nothing about but just want to jump on the bandwagon to fit in within the mainstream media narrative.

i find it bemusing when our own punjabi Sikh people talk about this kobe guy like he was their mama or something. The amount of social media posts that our own low IQ fudhu liberal lot about kobe and his passing away in tragic circumstances is very bizarre especially the punjabi girls who seem to have an identity crisis by leeching off on black identity/culture in their mindset, thinking and lifestyle than be proud and be strong in their own heritage. It's the usual low IQ lot who will for example shout for free free Palestine in demo's and sucking off non-sikh men boosting their ego while putting down their own community causes or not take part in them.

There must be a way to correct this baqwas? The right wing whites do it by creating funny meme's of the fudhu's of their own white community. Maybe we should do the same too?

Yup I see it too its like black people are the only people of colour in western societies so to pretend they (the whites in charge of media orgs) are furfilling their quota of diversity and BAME they will only put black men in the media usually with white women. You will never find a brown/indian/asian person with white women in any adverts or shows. Our asian/brown communities are too low IQ or afraid to call out the discrimination and racism in the media. Black Afro-carribeans also have advantage of being mostly christian so when they go church they build bridges with the white church goers and thus opening doors for new opportunities and relationships.

Whose fault is that? its partly the whites in the media fault and partly the faults of non-blacks not fighting for better representation they rather stay in the background. The black person will fight and play the race card at every opportunity even if its not about race....because thats the best card they have to open doors for them in a white dominated industries.

So how does the asian/brown man change the narrative? any solutions to this overt discrimination.

One solution is to play the race card as the black man does, it works for them it will work for the brown man. The other solution is try to get in the media which is a very uphill task and virtually impossible those who hate brown/asian men  are the gatekeepers of the industry. So they must be forced to change because they are not willing to invest in putting people they don't want a positive image of.

I have also noticed a lack of brown faces on adverts or general TV. They only seem to be news presenter types. The ones the love to brown nose the white man at any opportunity. 

Brownies on TV shows only seem to come on cookery shows. Which is good in a way as it shows our cultural food and heritage. 

Blacks never come on cookery shows. But are everywhere else. They are seen as one of them from a white perspective. 

Yep Kobe is not some saint like he is made out to be. Yet certain whites love be the boot slaves of these people. Not all though I know many whites that would not behave like this.

If you think black people are permitted to be athletes because "whites love be the boot slaves of these people" you're beyond help. 

 

Not sure what you mean by that. But Being in denial is never the answer. How else would can you define the mass worship of kobe amongst the white masses? Not only white but others are now following them.

Sorry, but this post makes no sense. I am guessing you are from the UK, so you don't fully grasp how popular basketball is in America and in many parts of the world. One could credibly argue that Kobe was the best basketball player ever (and an unbiased observer will have to concede that he is in the conversation).

Can you name any athlete of Asian descent who is one of the top ten athletes ever in one of the most popular worldwide sports?

Mr California sardar ji.  Or should I call you kobe da pyarar chela? 

There's plenty in cricket

Sachin tendulkar, virat kohli 

Milka Singh in athletics. 

Theres also the fact of many brown athletes who do not enter sports due to racism. Or why is there a lack of Asians in football in UK. Many are discouraged due to racism and stereo typing. 

Also kobe has rape charges against him that he settled with his millions. Yet chela like you only admire and worship him. 

Blacks are accepted by and large due to wearing the cross around their necks, having English names and having a similar white culture to the white man. Are the blackstars people you admire? Ie snoop dog, kanaye west?

    • It goes both ways. If you hear the Islamic narrative they also prob up Islamic invaders and rulers as benign. You should hear what they say about an invader like Muhammad Bin Qaasim who is hailed as a hero and who they claim just came to save a few Muslim women while the defender Raja Dahir is portrayed as an evil scheming, degenerate pervert. But historic Muslim sources like the Chachnama convey a different story and testify how the invading Muslim Arabs had taken thousands of Hindu Sindhi women back with them.    Or look at how they view Aurangzeb. They shamelessly justify his hate  and war crimes against the Hindus and Sikhs. Many even call him a Wali of Allah or a great saint much like how the Buddhists view King Ashok. He is universally respected by Sunni Muslims. He is basically the main reason why most Punjabi and Mirpuri Rajputs and Jatts are Muslims in Pakistan today.   The Hindu and Muslim grand narratives are very different. The Sikh grand narrative can best be read at the starting of Bhangu's Panth Prakash. Bhangu very elaborately explains the condition of India before Guru Nanak Dev ji took avtar and then what followed and how Sikhs got raaj by Vaheguru
    • see doing stuff like that is just stupid! but then again you cnt expect anything else from india.  marathas were deafed by afghans    but eventually without a doubt they took over india and made it into a hindu state again      iv heard that captain amrinder wanted to remove sikh ithiaas from punjab txt books? 
    • i really liked this movie    the last scene gave me goosbumps!        i wanna watch ajay devgans tanhaji next   
    • thanks I'll look into that 
    • showing the muslims in bad light is part of the hindutva motive though isnt it   so thats why the movies are so unbalanced. these movies are basically used politically and they are having a big impact in india.  but they are gd movies!  iv seen padmavaat  i really liked it   amazing production!    i wouldnt mind if they make a movie about sikh warriors like hari singh nalwa    currently bollywood is really gd with historical epics
