It sounded chilling to hear Lakers guard Kobe Bryant say it.But with a grand jury declining on Monday to indict white police officer Darren Wilson for his role in the death of unarmed black 18-year-old Michael Brown three months ago in Ferguson, MI, Bryant suggested a similar incident could happen again. After all, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot 2 1/2 years ago by George Zimmerman despite remaining unarmed and only wearing a hoodie in his Florida neighborhood.“You can sit here and argue about it until we’re blue in the face and protest about it,” Bryant said following practice on Tuesday at the Lakers’ practice facility in El Segundo. “Until the legal system, we have a serious legal system conversation, it’s going to keep on happening.”Bryant already expressed his disgust with the ruling, tweeting on Monday night that “the system enables young black men to be killed behind the mask of law.” Bryant expounded those thoughts on Tuesday, saying there needs to be more “accountability” and “responsibility” placed on law enforcement officials. “That conversation was about the seed of it all for our young black youth and the seed of where things start with education,” Bryant said. “That is community support and having proper mentors in your life and providing that guidance early on in a person’s life. That’s a big thing that’s missing in our communities.”Yet, amid Bryant’s outspokenness, he sounded unsure what impact his soundbites and tweets will actually make on this issue.“I don’t know if it helps or not,” Bryant said. “But I have an opinion and I’m not bashful to use it. I don’t know if it helps or not. We all have opinions. If I feel a certain way about something, I’m more than willing to say it.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error How?“What’s justifiable? What calls for legal action and what qualifies as the threshold in being able to use deadly force in that situation?,” Bryant asked rhetorically. “Those are higher conversations that need to be had.”This hardly marks the first time Bryant spoke out on racial issues.Bryant distanced himself in a New Yorker interview from the Miami Heat wearing a hoodie to symbolize Martin being shot by Zimmerman despite remaining unarmed while wearing a hoodie in his Florida neighborhood. But two days after after Zimmerman was acquitted of murder charges, Bryant posted on his Instagram account disgust with the verdict by quoting civil rights activist Frederick Douglass.Bryant also spoke at a rally run by the Trayvon Martin Foundation at Crenshaw High School in July, 2014 on the one-year anniversary of Zimmerman’s “not guilty” ruling. During that time, Bryant met and spoke with Martin’s parents, Sybrina and Tracy.
