    There's video now so that changes things..

    it's hard overcoming oppression... The reality is that blacks in the 90's were like women before the MeToo movement, aka scared to say this kind of stuff

    People say it's just 1 bad apple but the reality is that 1 cop in 100 can do a lot of damage... Think about how many lives he can screw up in 1 year, let alone a career.. and I'm not talking about murder - I'm talking about arresting people unnecessarily for being black...

    Now what if it's like 6 or 7 bad cops per 100 (it is) - now it's a massive problem

    Nobody was scared to say something in the 90s. The early 90s was a time of massive awareness and pride. It was just people like Jordan because he didnt want to alienate white money.

    And we had riots over racist police brutality in the 90s too. Burned LA down.

    We also had video of Rodney King and MJ was asked to comment about that and he gave the same BS answer that he did with Harvey Gantt - "oh I dont know enough about the situation so i cant comment."

    Craig Hodges rightfully criticized him for that: "You are bailing out when some heat is coming on you. We can't bail anymore." That was 1992.

    Good ass response. Liked it when i saw it.

    Kobe would have echoed something similar. Kobe never identified with black culture outside of basketball too much.

    A D.C. resident confronted Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters at a demonstration over the death of George Floyd in Washington, DC, on Sunday, calling them “hypocrites.”

    “Black Lives Matter is a joke. You are the racists,” said Nestride Yumga, an American citizen originally from Africa.

    “Go to Chicago. They don’t have schools, and they die every day. They don’t matter [to you] because you can’t get attention from that,” she told protesters.

    One woman told Yumga to “shut up” and said no one wanted to hear what she had to say. However, Yumga kept speaking to the crowd.

    She continued:

    "Group of hypocrites! Go to Southeast D.C., Northeast D.C. Tell them black lives matter! If it matters, it should matter everywhere. You guys are hypocrites, attention seekers. Black lives should matter everywhere. It doesn’t take a white cop to kill a black person [for their life] to matter.

    When black people kill black people, they don’t come out and do this crap."

    “I’m proud of my country, and I don’t want my country to be portrayed like this,” Yumga told Breitbart News, adding that Floyd’s death should not be an opportunity for groups to make people feel like victims.

    “No one is a victim here. The only victim here is George Floyd.”
