*Civil rights activist Najee Ali, director of Project Islamic H.O.P.E., is calling for a boycott of all products that NBA All-star Kobe Bryant endorses. This includes his jerseys, and signature gym shoes. The call for the national boycott is in response to Bryants negative comments concerning the Miami Heats support of the Trayvon Martin family.
In the March 31 issue of the New Yorker. Bryant discussed life and race with Ben McGrath. When McGrath asked Bryants opinion on the Miami Heats show of solidarity with Martin in the now iconic hoodie photo, the LA Lakers star stated:
I wont react to something just because Im supposed to, because Im an African-American, Bryant said. That argument doesnt 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 weve progressed as a society? Well, weve progressed as a society, then dont jump to somebodys defense just because theyre African-American. You sit and you listen to the facts just like you would in any other situation, right? So I wont assert myself.
Heres Najee Alis response:
Bryant comments concerning the Heats support of Trayvon Martin are indefensible. When Bryant butt raped a white woman in Colorado who was a complete stranger. Bryant was arrested and charged with rape. He begged for immediate support from the African-African community. Bryant even went as far as to quote Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (incorrectly I may add in his defense.) The only reason Bryant is not sitting in a Colorado prison and registering as a sex offender is because he paid the victim off in a settlement offer.
Bryants comments show his lack of compassion for the Martin family and their supporters. Americans of all races didnt support Trayvon because he was African-American. We supported him because he was an unarmed youth who was racially profiled, stalked, confronted, and then murdered by George Zimmerman. African American youth should no longer buy Bryants jerseys or shoes and should boycott all products he endorses. Bryant doesnt identify with the struggle that our African-American youth face nationally. So why should we continue to support Bryant who has never truly identified with the African American experience.

Hmm, maybe Jim Brown was right about Kobe:
I don’t like Kobe, but I think I’ll go out and buy his jersey!
Kobe is so right. The man is talking about content of character not just color of skin.
Those who do not understand this reasoned stance are ignorant.
Kobe sounds like he has half a brain, which is more than can be said about most of those race hustlers.
A Kobe stake... out?
Bryant might have a libel case against Ali.
Race hustlers can’t stand hearing the truth..hustlers will always exploit race because that is all they know how to do, as long as their is a racial divide they continue making money
No ! Those who dont understand this reasoning are (i) purposely (/i) ignorant !
If Kobe had a son he wouldn’t look like Trayvon...
Yes, Najee Ali is a liar.
Kobe tweeted he still thinks it was wrong what happened to Trayvon. He’s stating the accurate thing that black people can’t blindly support others due to race.
This idiot is saying it’s wrong to say people need to not be racist.
Obviously, Kobe's statement that people should look into the facts is a direct threat to this moron's position in the matter.
Well, duh, he was raised by two parents who pushed him to be his best.
Guess I’ll buy some shoes!
Stupid, willfully so.
Kobe may be wrong on any number of other personal issues, but, with good personal experience on his part, I think his view on “race” is more honest and rational; more honest and rational than it is politically correct for a “black” man to make.
The Miami Heat is - except for Ray Allen - a bunch of THUGs. LeBron James, Wade and Bosch should tell the Martin family that Trayvon is a THUG.
