There’ll be a job opening soon at MSNBC after an anchor drops the N-word. Smh

I’m going on the record as not defending racism, racist slurs, and that saying the N-word is never a slip of the tongue.

How many other times have you defended others’ use of the N-word?

Turdburglar101 hijacking another topic with unrelated bullshit.

Focus on what’s important instead of mindless crap. Thanks.

I believe using the N- word is wrong, even in the context of Kobe Bryant’s passing.

It’s important not to be racist. You don’t agree?

It is virtually impossible for me to believe that this was deliberate on intentional. In a scrambling situation with new information coming every second, people get flustered and are thinking 10 20 words ahead of their actual speech.

LL101 - seriously, what the hell is your problem? The biggest story in the country right now is millions of people mourning the death of NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his 13-year old daughter, and your comment on this tragedy is to make it about what slipped out of the mouth of an MSNBC reporter.

I extended you some sympathy in your 9/11 thread for the loved ones you lost. Perhaps you should extend the same here and not make this story about something literally nobody is talking about.

THAT ASIDE, literally the last NBA game I watched from start to finish was Kobe's last game in April of 2016 where he put up 60 points. Seems like it was just yesterday. I can't believe that that particular game was played nearly 4 years ago. Now, I was never a Lakers fan and I didn't watch much of Kobe all my years growing up, but I know he is regarded as one of the best to ever play the game. His life certainly had some controversies, but I think most people have forgotten about those and forgiven him. Just as sad, if not sadder, is the death of his daughter. May they both rest in peace.

“My problem”? I call out a person for saying “niggers” and you say that’s “MY PROBLEM”?!

Where were you when the meteorologist was fired for “accidentally” saying “Martine Luther Coon.” “Oh, but that wasn’t in the context of someone dying.” Really? He was killed for what he believed in!!!!

I refuse hypocrisy. I refuse double standards.

When someone “accidentally” says “niggers,” the problem is with THEM and YOU for defending them!!!

LL - There's a time and a place for everything, and the fact that you still don't recognize that this thread was neither the time nor the place for your post (and subsequent trolling) renders anything I would respond with as pointless, so I won't waste my breath.

All I'll say is, RIP Kobe.

Indeed, I thought he was pretty cool as a 6 year old when he first came on the scene... was a little numb yesterday.. very very sad.

Not a basketball fan. First thing that came to my mind was the fact he was accused of rape. The woman eventually refused to testify, but I think received some cash in the end.

Ya' think?!? It's been common knowledge for a decade+. A rudimentary internet search would tell you all the details, Einstein.
