 Storm hits over Kobe Bryant's Trayvon comments

March 21, 2014 By WND News

'You can't sit there and take somebody's side just because they're an African-American'.

Kobe Bryant’s comments about the Trayvon Martin shooting have stirred a storm of controversy, with a talk show host and television personality now telling Arsenio Hall that justice is too important to be bent by race.

“Even though the system sometimes is unfair, it doesn’t accord us the license to be unfair as well,” Stephen A. Smith told Hall during a recent appearance. “We have to make sure we’re just as fair-minded as we’re asking other people to be. If we’re not willing to do that we don’t have a strong argument.”

Smith appeared on Hall’s show the same day he visited with Bryant recently. It was a comment from Bryant that launched the discussion about the Martin case. Martin was shot and killed by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman, who under pressure from federal authorities eventually was charged in the case.

However, a jury decided that he had been under attack, and it was for that reason he shot at Martin.

The Los Angeles Lakers’ Bryant was quoted as telling New Yorker writer Ben McGrath that he would have reacted differently than members of the Miami Heat did in 2012, as they took pictures wearing hoodies in honor of Trayvon Martin.

Bryant was quoted in the New Yorker as saying, “I won’t react to something just because I’m supposed to, because I’m an African-American. 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… 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.”

Read the real story of what happened, in “If I Had a Son: Race, Guns, and the Railroading of George Zimmerman.”

Immediately, Bryant’s comments were picked up by Newsone.com, a website that caters to black Americans, and attacked. He also came under intense social media scrutiny.

“Kobe Bryant has the attitude that justice should be equal no matter what, with regards to race or gender,” Smith said. “That was his position. All he was trying to say was listen to the facts. … before we jump … and judge accordingly. “You can’t sit there and take somebody’s side just because they’re an African-American,” Smith said. “I don’t have a problem with that. I think he was right on point.

“We’ve come a lot way as a society,” Smith said. “We have an obligation to recognize that instead of always getting emotional and assuming that someone’s against us because of race.” Smith, a commentator for ESPN, gained fame for predicting the LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh would sign with the Miami NBA team in 2010.

Jack Cashill, author of “If I Had a Son: Race, Guns, and the Railroading of George Zimmerman,”, told WND it was good to see Bryant make such comments to the New Yorker. “When the nation’s race hustlers challenge Bryant’s ‘authenticity,’ he fights back. When they challenge Obama’s, he surrenders to their agenda,” he said.

Another former NBA player, the outspoken Charles Barkley, also made comments in the wake of Zimmerman’s July 2013 acquittal that didn’t reflect the unified thinking of the black community: “I think Trayvon Martin – God rest his soul – I think he did flip the switch and started beating the hell out of Mr. Zimmerman. I agree with the verdict.” Cashill told WND, “If basketball players like Bryant and Barkley refuse to give race precedence over justice, why can’t the president of the United States and the attorney general do the same?”

“If I Had A Son” tells how for the first time in the history of American jurisprudence, a state government, the U.S. Department of Justice, the White House, the major media, the entertainment industry and the vestiges of the civil rights movement conspired to put an innocent man in prison for the rest of his life.

All that stood between Zimmerman and lifetime internment were two folksy local lawyers, their aides, and some very dedicated citizen journalists, most notably an unpaid handful of truth seekers at the blogging collective known as the Conservative Treehouse. “If I Had A Son” takes an inside look at this unprecedented battle formation. The book tells the story, too, of the six stalwart female jurors who ignored the enormous pressure mounting around them and preserved America’s belief in its judicial system. Ultimately, the courts found that Zimmerman fired on Martin because he was being attacked.

In the wake of the verdict, skeptics in the Martin camp claimed that the state of Florida did not play to win. In the course of his research, Cashill came across some startling evidence, which suggests that those skeptics may indeed be right.

“If I Had A Son” is the one and only comprehensive look at the most politically significant trial in decades.

 Roving black mobs too many to ignore

City rejects media cover-up when violence breaks out in newspaper parking lot

March 24, 20114     by Colin Flaherty

Colin Flaherty is an award-winning reporter and author of "White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence to America and how the media ignores it."

(Editor’s note: Colin Flaherty has done more reporting than any other journalist on what appears to be a nationwide trend of skyrocketing black-on-white crime, violence and abuse. WND features these reports to counterbalance the virtual blackout by the rest of the media due to their concerns that reporting such incidents would be inflammatory or even racist. WND considers it racist not to report racial abuse solely because of the skin color of the perpetrators or victims. Videos linked or embedded may contain foul language and violence.)

Ten years ago, the media in Louisville, Ky., could have gotten away with reporting this weekend’s events this way: A group of 10 “roving teens got into a fight with two girls … then it happened a few more times over two hours.”

But now, less than 24 hours after a mob of 30 black people roamed through the city’s downtown Saturday, beating, laughing, destroying property, sending three seriously hurt people to the hospital and walking away laughing, outraged citizens in Louisville are asking two questions: Why is black mob violence such a problem? And when is local media going to start telling the truth about it?

Samantha Craven saw one of the attacks: “I seriously just witnessed a man get beat (almost) to death on Broadway right by 4th street live,” she wrote at the WAVE-TV News site. “He was jumped by AT LEAST 30 kids!! There was blood everywhere. … This is the craziest s— I’ve ever seen in my life! I’m shaking. … I wanna cry.”

Later, via email, Craven described the attackers as black and added, “As we drove away, we noticed the group still walking laughing and carrying on a few blocks down.”

WHAS-TV News described one of the assaults as a “fight.” But it was hardly that.

“It was a group of black teens,” said Craig Roberts of Louisville. “Wonder why they won’t mention that.”

Black mobs routinely terrorize cities across the country, but the media and government are silent. Read the detailed account of rampant racial crime in “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It.”

The first beat-down happened at the popular Big Four Bridge, a converted railroad trestle that is now a bike and pedestrian attraction at the recently redeveloped Louisville Waterfront Park area.

Amy Reid described what happened to her father, mother and children.

“These incidents actually started around 7 p.m. when these vicious little hoodlums attacked my 61-year-old father on the Big Four Bridge, in front of my mother and two small children, while they screamed for help and he pleaded for them to stop,” Reid posted in the comments section of the Louisville Courier-Journal. “Bystanders just stood and watched it happen, no one would help. Louisville Metro Police arrived and would not let them file a report and would not help them get off the bridge to their car safely! My girls are still traumatized and cannot understand why someone would want to hurt their grandpa.”

Reid’s family had to walk past their laughing attackers to return to their car.

Some of the violence took place in and around the parking lot of the Courier-Journal. The black mob vandalized several cars there. It is not clear if anyone was working at the Courier-Journal then, because the newspaper added few details of the violence to its initial reports.

Or if the editors knew, they did not say.

Former Louisville Police Detective Dale Rhodes has a hunch which it is. He took to Facebook to put the racial violence in perspective after the paper removed his initial comments. Black-on-white crime is a fact of life in Louisville, he says. As is its denial.

“Over a period of about five weeks (I think in the summer of 1990) there were at least 20 incidents where white people were assaulted by a gang of blacks numbering anywhere from 5 to 15,” Rhodes wrote. “Many of the victims were severely beaten, some left for dead and others left with life-long, career-ending injuries. All the incidents involved black-on-white crime, every single one. Yet we were ordered, if asked, to tell reporters and the media there was no evidence to indicate these crimes were racially motivated. I personally witnessed commanding officers being far less than truthful with the media regarding these incidents.”

Even a cursory check of Google reveals the black mob violence and black-on-white crime in Louisville never really stopped since then.

“The incidents to which I refer are just the tip of the iceberg,” said the former police officer.

Writing in the Louisville Examiner in 2011, Thomas McAdam exposed Louisville’s dirty little secret: “Sadly, this idyllic urban oasis is fast devolving into a target-rich environment for roving bands of thugs. … The dirty little secret that City Hall wants to hide from the public is the fact that Waterfront Park is not a very safe place for families, particularly after dark.”

McAdam went on to describe an incident where 200 black people beat a disabled person at a bus stop after a minor league baseball game. The man went to the hospital with a fractured skull.

“But just how dangerous is it down at Waterfront Park?” McAdam asks. We may never know because “city officials hide the dangers from the public.”

Today, however, there are too many victims, too many witnesses, too many videos and too many people who want answers for that to continue forever.

Even so, some in Louisville are determined to ignore the racial violence.

“Black mob violence trend,” snarked James Kemp at the Courier-Journal. “Fox News much?”

Others chirped in with accusations of racism for those who noticed the black-on-white crime.

But more and more people in Louisville are less and less willing to accept how newspapers, TV stations, police officials and liberal activists refuse to confront the reality of black mob violence and black-on-white crime.

“Notice our police chief will address this Monday – after the really important stuff like the NCAA tournament is over for the week,” said one Louisville resident and WND reader. “Make sure you read the comments with each article. Interesting, I think, how Louisville residents have a more realistic stance on what is happening.”

And that cannot come too soon for some.

“It’s happening,” said Morris Willis. “And if you deny it, ignore it or try to hide it, the end result will be violent retaliation by those who feel victimized or fear being victims.”

Black mobs routinely terrorize cities across the country, but the media and government are silent. Read the detailed account of rampant racial crime in “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It.”

 New U.S. mayor sets sights on 'black nation'

Republic of New Afrika leader now guiding capital city's direction

By Scott Greer    for WND


Voters in Jackson, Miss., a mid-sized city in the heart of the Deep South, have picked a Democrat as their mayor. What’s different about this individual is that he is a former leader of the Republic of New Afrika, a group dedicated to creating an independent black nation out of five southern states.

Now leading the city of about 175,000 is Chokwe Lumumba – who has a long history of radical activism and whose plans for the largest city in Mississippi could be called “revolutionary.”

A co-founder of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, which promotes black “self-determination,” Lumumba was sworn in on July 1, after winning 86 percent of the vote in the general election.

He had won the Democrat nomination with 54 percent of the vote.

Despite what could be considered an overpowering victory, Jackson’s business owners are extremely concerned with Lumumba’s proposals for the city.

One of Lumumba’s primary goals as mayor of Jackson is to create a “solidarity economy” in the city. According to a report published by the Belfast Telegraph, a solidarity economy is an “umbrella term used to describe a wide variety of alternative economic activities, including worker-owned co-operatives, co-operative banks, peer lending, community land trusts, participatory budgeting and fair trade.”

Lumumba also has earned the highest praise from the Final Call, the official publication of the Nation of Islam, which called his electoral victory one of the “most important progressive political victories on a long list of important political leaders.”

Further in the article, Final Call noted that: “the seeds of a ‘Black Nation’ have already taken root in the state where Mr. Lumumba is mayor of the capital city.”

Lumumba discussed this idea of a “Black Nation” forming in Mississippi with Final Call and what can be done to bring it to life.

“Some of (the counties) are as much as 80 percent black. So, demographically we have a solid, a non-self-governing territory. What we need to do in that area – and actually what our people have begun to do, Mississippi has more black elected officials than any state in the United States – and if we can now give that some political content, some direction in terms of what we want to do in terms of taking these electoral victories, these economic victories and teach the message that we know from long ago, of self-determination, of self-governance, self-economic development,” Lumumba stated.

In addition, he calls this area of Mississippi the “Kush District,” and he raised his fist in a black power salute at the ceremony where he was sworn in as mayor.

Despite a worldview that seems overwhelmingly focused on race, Jackson’s mayor does not see himself as a racist and criticizes those who feel that he is one.

“People who talk about that are never really going to impact on the real racism, because they don’t have the understanding that racism still exists,” Lumumba told a local news outlet. “A racist, first of all, is a person that either systemically or individually victimizes someone and actually imposes some kind of power on them, deprivation on them because of their race. But, that’s really not our problem. Our problem is that there are people that deprive people of jobs because of their race. Our problem is that there are people who put people in jail because of their race. Our problem is that there are people that use force or energy to hurt people because of their race.”

He continued to explain how he is not a racist.

“Mr. Lumumba never lynched anybody. But, there have been lynchings in Mississippi. Mr. Lumumba never fired anybody off their job because of their color, but that does exist in Mississippi today. And so what we have to do to get to the base of it is recognize its existence first of all, and once we recognize the existence, we can come up with ways to solve it,” Lumumba commented.

Ben Kinchlow, author of the just released “Black Yellowdogs: The Most Dangerous Citizen is Not Armed, But Uninformed,” believes Lumumba’s principles go against the core values and principles of America and will lead only to further division in the country.

“We don’t need more division in this country, we need people who are recognizing that we have severe economic challenges that we need to address as a unified people, not as a group of separate individuals that are trying to split the United States of America,” Kinchlow declared.

Colin Flaherty, author of “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It,” considers it hypocrisy that there isn’t more media coverage of this case when the media have been heavily covering a case of a few individuals trying to buy up all the property and set up an all-white town in North Dakota.

“If the mainstream media really wants to find a race-based government that is operating right now in America, they should go to Jackson, Miss., because this is where ‘New Afrika’ is operating,” Flaherty commented.

“They have basically established the principles of the ‘Republic of New Afrika’ in the capital city of Mississippi. Everything they do is done through the prism of race: hiring, police work, contracts, and they’re pretty explicit about it. In their view, the white people have been running the town for a long time and now it’s their turn,” Flaherty observed.

Lumumba was born in Detroit as Edwin Finley Taliaferro, but changed his name later.

The Final Call, Louis Farrakhan’s mouthpiece, quoted him talking about his goals.

“If you take Atlanta, for an example, over a 10-year period of time, from 1985 to 1995, 500,000 black people moved to Atlanta. If we had that kind immigration into Mississippi, Mississippi would be well on its way to becoming what you and I talked about,” a “shining city on the hill,” a virtual “New Jerusalem.”

During his career as an attorney, Final Call reported, he represented members of the Black Liberation Army, and he was vice president of the “Republic of New Afrika,” which claimed Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina to be the home of a new “black nation.”

His plans include summer youth programs such as what he calls “African Scouts.”

Blogger Trevor Loudon, of the New Zeal, “Shining the Torch for Liberty,” said anyone who doubts Lumumba’s dedication to being a Marxist revolutionary should watch him in action in 1998 in Washington.

There he demanded freedom for black “political prisoners” in the U.S.

He cited convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal as one of those needing “liberation,” Loudon reports.

Lumumba also listed another convicted cop murderer, Assata Shakur, of the Black Liberation Army, and Loudon noted that Lumumba was Shakur’s lawyer.

“We’re here in the governmental center of the citadel of imperialism,” Lumumba said about Washington, where the buildings were built “off the blood of our people” and using the “wealth they have stolen not only from colonies all over the world, but the African colony.”

“This is a corrupt system,” he shouted. “There can be no bargain with this system … there can be no compromise. … We are New Africans. We come here because we are colonized.”
