Kobe Bryant Slur

April 17, 2011 by staff 

Kobe Bryant Slur, On the one hand, it is very easy to crucify Kobe Bryant for his outburst on Tuesday. Angry with the referee for a questionable call, Kobe yelled “fag” to nobody in particular. A veteran of the game and is no stranger to controversy, Kobe certainly aware of the dangers of the television camera that sees and fined and, 000 for the insult.

While it is not surprising that an athlete at the center of a fierce competition to let the word out of anger, Kobe “apology” was surprising, in a strangely honest.

Kobe said the word has moved beyond the level of expression of prejudice and became an insult, without prejudice to hmosxls. Because he was not technically sorry – only sorry he got caught – he is appealing his fine.

Ironically, that’s right; “queer” has grown in the sense of something different in the last decade and a half. But it has come to mean something different only to those who use words as an insult, or insult hmosxls continue to affect the same way as before?

Which brings us to the real issue in the Kobe fiasco: the third party not involved saying the word “queer” no longer has a negative connotation to hmosxls.

It is true that a straight man to speak on behalf of hmosxls on the meaning of the word hate. It is as false as a white man calling for the N-word is not insensitive to blacks.

In a sense, is a systemic problem? How “fag” insult replacement evolves in this hard and do not come to refer to hmosxls? And why has the same stigma surrounding the N-word, or any other racial slur, not surrounded by “fag”?

The word has never been taboo. Think back to the middle school grounds, when the word is dropped a dozen times per minute. Think back to minor disciplinary issues fixed place for the use of the word.

It is a word no less harmful than any racial slur, however, has been tolerated. Is it because people are less concerned about insulting hmosxls than any other minority group? And if so, why? It’s a totally different sociological study to find out why the word has been accepted and tolerated, while many others are brand unspeakable insults hurt from the start, but the fact is, “queer” has become an “acceptable” insult.

Due to the tolerance of the word, the incident is being Kobe brushed under the carpet as insignificant, the event every day, without any gravity.

More than percent of voters at the site of the Los Angeles Times said the NBA Kobe should not punish the explosion. Twenty-six percent voted for him very well. Suspension, voted, was out of the question.

Forgive the use of a commentary on YouTube as an example, but – for better or for worse – commentators on YouTube have the ability to speak on behalf of the masses behind the veil of anonymity. “The media is blowing this way out of proportion,” the comment above in the video of the incident in Kobe.

It is always surprising how unrelated parties feel better qualified to comment on a topic that affects them. Voters are certainly not qualified to comment on the true meaning of the slur, but I feel the need to insert their views inexperienced anyway.

If there’s one thing to be learned from this incident is that she loves to talk most of the minority. “Ignore the real opinions of the minority group,” they say. “We understand their best interests.”

Kobe should have been fined and probably suspended, too, if only to make a statement that 50 percent: “This is a more serious problem than we think and it’s time to stop talking about those who can speak for themselves. “
