My name is Wayne Dupree or as most of you know me by, Newsninja2012. I am and have been committed to exposing the Democrats in a way that has been frowned upon by some conservatives and cheered by many more. I feel it’s our responsibility as conservatives to fight back against the liberal hate machine and meet them head on with like-minded strength and dedication.

Listen, I was never one of those black Americans who listened to the mainstream media in regards to the facts of the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman incident. I call it incident because that’s what it was. This was not a murder. This was not a premeditated act of violence as most poverty pimps would have you believe. This was an incident that happens every day in all major cities.

Now what you had pumping up the situation was the mainstream media trying to come up with answers from the studio seats. They also tried to be judge and jury at the same time. I never believed what the media stated nor did I fall into the showing the younger picture of Trayvon, trying to garner sympathy.

Los Angeles Lakers basketball star Kobe Bryant is totally right in his assertion of the facts and I am 100% behind him.

According to Colorlines, when McGrath asked Bryant’s opinion on the Miami Heat’s show of solidarity with Martin in the now iconic “Hoodie” photo, the 35-year-old L.A. Laker said that such a move showed lack of “progress”:

I won’t react to something just because I’m supposed to, because I’m an African-American,” he said. “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 profile goes on to quote former NFL running back Jim Brown, who at one point said, “[Kobe] is somewhat confused about culture, because he was brought up in another country.” Bryant then defended himself on Twitter, writing, “A ‘Global’ African American is an inferior shade to ‘American’ African American?? #hmmm. that doesn’t sound very #Mandela or #DrKing sir.”

I am so past that in my life right now. The black leaders, in my opinion, just don’t get it and they don’t speak for me or will they speak for my children. We are individuals capable of our own thoughts and decisions. We don’t need the mainstream media driving hate.

    I wish more people payed attention to facts, instead of what the media feeds them.

    Kobe is Right! If you don’t want to be judged by your skin color, then how cab they ask him to judge an issue by theirs. Kobe spoke his truth, his own personal views, why must everyone be damed, for their own options? I back him 100%! If only more people would stand their ground and not be pushed into following the mainstream media like sheep lead to the slander.
