Stephanie Rice: Kobe Bryant and I are just friends

Kobe Bryant and Stephanie Rice were called out by a few different Australian athletes for allegedly having an inappropriate relationship, leading to Rice addressing the matter. The Australian swimmer says she and Kobe are just friends.

“FYI yes Kobe and I are friends, but no we are not together and never have been,” she wrote in a tweet. “Can’t guys and girls be just friends..? He’s an amazing athlete and I’ve enjoyed getting to know him and many other great athletes in my Olympic journey.”

Rice just gave the story an extra day in the news cycle by responding. Considering that she doesn’t mind being spotted with him in public, or showing off racy bikini pics on Twitter, it’s safe to say she likes the attention. And based on these pictures, it seems like Kobe keeps finding himself in mix-ups with women.

I don’t dispute that they’re just friends and not together, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t hooked up. Only a fool would believe that they haven’t, or that they haven’t gone overboard with their flirting.

     Wow!  What an enlightened approach to race and sex!  No – not really!  You seem to have a Neanderthal mentality.  As Reverend Al would say, We gotcha!  You don’t want relationships with white women; you want to F-them – period!  When are you going to stop using past discrimination to justify present barbarian behavior?

    Black men make ugly babies, look at Seal and the poor brats he put into that moron Hedi Klum. Now she is divored and is stuck with 2 butt ugly kids who will always resent having a black man as a father. There will always be white women with low selfesteem and white prostitutes who will go for black drug dealers and thugs or athletes, you can not stop it.

    Black men treat women like dirt, espcially black women. I dated a girl in college whos dad was black and mom was a blond German.  I got into a fight in the dorm elevator with a black guy who called my girl friend a dirty Ho bag because she was kissing me infront of him. The guy follwed us out of the elevator to our floor and hit my girlfiend in the back of the head knocking her down because she told him to grow up. I was a wrestler in college and I left the guy tied up in knots with both arms broken and a torn knee. And it was I who was arrested, my girl friends dad blamed me for the attack and made her transfer to another school. That was 5 years ago, she was killed this summer by her black ex-boy friend.

     Mark,  your comment is just as racist as the black replies to all of my stuff here!  There are many mixed-race people who are very attractive.  The trouble I have with people  like Seal and Kobe Bryant is that there will never be any black women is their lives, yet I am sure they spout the same black pride; black is beautiful rhetoric.  What I have trouble with is the black guy who hits on the white girl and when she says she is not interested, he immediately assumes that it is because he is black and she is a racist.  It never occurs to him that she might be turned off to his being uneducated; uncouth; too arrogant, and too aggressive.  Always being able to play the race card enables him to maintain a high opinion of himself despite evidence to the contrary.

  • Mexoplex

    youre throwing out a whole lot of generalizations. The only thing i was originally saying was ” Kobe, youve been in a similar situation, dont repeat your history”. Im para-phrasing but you know what i said.  

    And then YOUR comment,” Black womenare beautiful until you find the right white or Hispanic one. ” Well that sentence right there should end this argument. Because I dont need to waste my time with anyone that has that mentality. You sir(ma’am?) are no John Brown.

  • aliniraq

    So, my comments are barbarian? It was silly for me to say that about white women, or any woman. It suggests that I live in the same tailer park as you do.

    Yes, people, it is fun to sling mud and talk crazy here.  But the fact of the matter is that people are going to date the ‘individual’ that turns him/her on. I am glad to see the passion in everyone’s perspective about race and relationships.  It is not going to change. There is a great amount of truth to what everyone is saying, even though everyone is putting everyone in one pot, so to speak.  Keep up the good hating. It stimulates conversation. 

  • aliniraq

    Renovimus1, if you were a black woman in America, you would know the answer to that question.  What percentage, or even a number of black women in America have a profitable business that allows them to travel abroad, (education, yes), childless (not likely), debtless (in America?), drama-less (this one is funny), well traveled (only a percentage of Americans travel abroad).

    I understand your point. It sounds real good. Talk to black folks, or go to where black American women live, work, and play.  Just like the rest of us, life gets in the way of that fairytale.  Yes, lots of people are able to experience your suggested life experience, however, reality also exists.

    I am sure that you can cite 2 or 3 thousand black women who are doing what you described, but does your suggestion suggest that it is reality? And, I hope that your question, ‘Why pretend?’ is not what you really wanted to ask.  Pretend, Revovimus1?

  • JohnBrown31

    Mexoplex, you keep dancing around the specific points that I have been making in all these exchanges.  Whenever I address the hypocrisy and double-standard of blacks regarding interracial relationships,  I get accused by blacks of racism and/or having lost a white girlfriend to some dynamic black stud-muffin.  Why don’t you respond to all the rich and famous black guys who dump their pretty black wives for white or Hispanic girlfriends and wives.  Respond to all the rich black athletes who spend thousands of dollars in strip clubs and they ain’t spending  much of their money on black girls – I have two bouncer friends in Miami! Respond to the time when I was walking down a street in Boston holding hands with my black girlfriend and was hit over the head with a block of wood by a black kid who promptly ran away.  Of course, he would have done the same thing to a black guy walking down the street with a white girl – right?  Tell me why you have no trouble with the late Don Cornelius of Soul Train chasing blonde white women, but always exclaiming Peace; Love and Soul. 

  • JohnBrown31

    aliniraq, you cannot be serious!  You can use expressions like F-ing them and still take offense when someone calls you on it – this amazes me.  Blacks can barrage whites with criticism, but as soon as a white guy calls attention to black hypocrisy you get defensive and insulting.  Why?  Because the truth hurts. Like other blacks contributing to these exchanges, you never address my specific points, you just play the race card – whites are racists. How pathetic.  Why do you feel that I hate black people simply because of my observations?  Let me share a story.  Years ago, I went to a party with my black girlfriend. There were only blacks there and one black dude glared at me the entire time.  I thought he was going to get up and begin punching me out. He almost had a complete meltdown when my girl sat on my lap.  Then, one of his homies arrived with his white girlfriend and he treated both of them as if he hadn’t seen them in years. I am sure you have no problem with this because black behavior is always okay with you, right?

  • renovimus1

    I don’t know anyone (without) a valid passport – are you kidding me?  Many people of color travel abroad every year.  Many that may fall under the term “missing” in the US simply left and did not bother to come back.

    This is a natural progression.  If you visit many college and university campuses in the US it is almost 7-1 female and many once they graduate are not only traveling but working abroad. 

    This has become the norm for many.  Just because you may be from the hood does not mean you must stay there.  There is a lot more to see around the world.  Do yourself a favor and go experience more, your life view will immediately change. 

    Don’t become upset with others because you have chosen to live the way you have. 

    I love my life, don’t you? 

  • Mexoplex

    all the “points” you are making are very broad and un-called for.

    i dont recall saying a cot damn thing about other black athletes, don cornelius, you, sponge bob square pants, the little black boy that hit you on the head, or the realities of the flux capacitor in relation to the time-space continuum…you need attention get it from someone else. Now youre just talking- a lot.

  • renovimus1

    Oh lord.  People, date who you want.  This conversation has become ridiculous.  I have dated and marrying who I want – I don’t and have never cared what anyone else thinks.  I can’t live by your standards and moral code – I’m happier when I live by my own. 

  • JohnBrown31

    Mexoplex, once again, the only way you know how to respond is by being insulting. You throw out silly, irrelevant, polysyllabic words and you really think your are communicating something. You should stick to your classy phrases like F-ing white women. Of course, my having black girlfriends and getting beaten up does not interest you at all because I am white, but you are not a racist – correct?  Getting hit on the back by a black kid because I was holding hands with a black girl is, as you say, a very broad point – right?

  • aliniraq

    renovimus1, I
    think that you have the wrong person. Unless you call Sienna Plantation in
    Sugar Land Texas the hood, you may not have been out of the hood. Don’t toss
    crap at me because you are an angry black woman. The tone of your response
    suggests that you are standing out in front of a neighborhood liquor store with
    your homies looking for a new trick.

    If you do not
    know anyone with a valid passport, you and I should not even exchange words because you
    are out of touch. And, by the way, I am currently out of the US working, and,
    my fair lady, I am working into my second passport, due to foreign travel,
    since April 2001. Don’t give me that black woman; I can be all that I wanna be,
    woman on woman attitude bullsh*t. Keep that for those brothers that you look down at, you triffling trick. 

    Come on now. I
    expressed my views like all of the other people. If you don’t like what I say,
    go turn another trick.

  • renovimus1

    Oh my God! Did I hurt your “widdle” feelings?  You seem to wish that I was angry…..I’m so not angry that I’m going to go on my patio stare at the lake and have a glass of orange juice to brighten up my day – whoo, you are a downer.   Cheers!

  • Mexoplex

    first of all the real test to pointing out the Trolls and the Insecure “bloggers” is their inability to remember the argument at hand. Youre so busy trying to get attention you start running conversations together. I never said anything about “F-ing white women”. Not that it’s important but ive dated all races that would date me back. 

    I dont know what color you are  and i really dont care. how do you even know what color i am? This is the internet where what you say or claim to have done is irrelevant because of anonymity. 
    if Kobe had gotten in trouble with an Asian girl and then again with an Asian girl at the olympics my INITIAL post would have read like this.”Kobe, stay.away.from.those.Asian.chicks.”
     But noooooooo, here comes the poor, wittle, “allegedly” white boy, who twied to weally understand bwack people and even had a weal welationship with a sister but the mean bwack peopwle didnt like it no.you want to argue about something, argue about why you dont know what it is F— you are talking about.
      The way posting on here, you couldnt keep a girlfriend PERIOD. 

  • JohnBrown31

    Mexoplex, Once again,  the only way you respond is by being insulting.  Can you ever avoid the F-word in a conversation?  Combining it with baby-talk spelling is also very mature on your part! All this began when I posted that I would like to hear about one of our Olympic basketball players hitting on a black woman in London.  Sure, this was prompted by all the heat I received when I dated black girls.  Of course, no blacks want to comment on this and the hypocrisy issue involved.  It’s similar to the Trayvon Martin murder.  By the way, I think George Zimmerman is guilty and I hope he is brought to trial and convicted and sent to prison for a long, long time.  However, in the weeks that followed Trayvon’s murder, many young black men were killed by other young black men, but there was no outcry from Reverend Al or Jesse. Of course, your response will be that this has nothing to do with what we are talking about.  It has everything to do with it because you reject any criticism of black behavior if and when it comes from white people.  That’s the real bottom line here – isn’t it? 

  • aliniraq

    How was I being
    defensive? I think that you have your commenters mixed up. Are you sitting in
    front of the computer drinking or using meth? Read again, if you are literate
    enough, and make sure that you are talking to the correct commenter. It is
    exciting to see a white man exercise his ignorance. However, you have systems
    and institutions that support you no matter what you say or do. You are one of
    millions of lucky white people. Lucky in that blacks don’t wipe all of you
    bigots out, one at a time.

    This issue of
    men and women is for laughs only. No one, not even your bigot a**, can tell any
    man or woman, or even suggest to them who to date. Guess what Jim Crow; I can
    say what I want to say. I hope that you don’t like my opinion. It means, to me,
    at least, that I am on the right track. Angry white man.

    Don’t take your individual bad dealing with black folks and toss it around as though it is a bag of sh*t. Speak as you want, but at least, have some validity in what you say.  Your message reads like a met addict talking.  I have arrested a lot of them. You fit the profile.  I am going to track you. I will see if I can get you some help; maybe a an officer in you vacinity do a mental health warrant on you.

  • Mexoplex

    you just like typing. youre not debating, youre preaching. you also dont listen to anyone, otherwise you wouldnt have these long sermons on topics that were not brought up. 

  • JohnBrown31

    You are a classic case of
    psychological projection where you throw your own thoughts, desires, feelings,
    and insecurities onto someone else. 
    I talk about being resented and beaten up by black guys for my having
    black girlfriends and cannot get even one black person with the moral courage
    to acknowledge this as wrong.  All
    I get back are accusations that I am a racist and now a druggie!  Again, never do you guys respond to
    specific points that I make; all you are capable of is playing the race card –
    how sad.  How does the telling of
    my negative experiences at the hands of black guys simply because I was with
    black girlfriends make me a racist? 
    I think it makes them racists, but you’d never ever agree with me. There
    are black guys out there, and you know this very well, who think it is
    perfectly okay for them to hit on every white girl they see, but God help the
    white guy who hits on black ladies.

     

    Now, let me admit a mistake.  I may have confused you with another
    person in this forum and commented on something you did not in fact write.  For that I apologize.

     

    p.s. If a white “officer of the
    law” threatened a black with tracking etc. the way you threatened me, he could
    have both the FBI and the NAACP on his case, now couldn’t he?  So who really has the advantage these
    days?
     

  • JohnBrown31

    As  usual, you guys like to pick
    and choose what is relevant and what is not.  How dare a white guy make any input here? Black guys can
    chase after any women they like and God help anyone who raises any questions about
    that because they will be charged with racism.  However, black guys will decide which, if any, black women,
    they’ll allow white guys to pursue. 
     Normal, objective folks
    would call that unfair and hypocritical.

  • aliniraq

    Johnbrown31,

    This ignorant
    exchange has gotten us readers away from your points about being targeted by
    black men when they see you with black women.

    Let me say
    that I stand with you against anyone who targets you because you are with a
    woman, no matter what her ethnic background is. I get a lot of this in my
    profession, and I understand how silly it is to target a person for such a
    reason.

    This other
    stuff about personal attacks is just a bunch of foolish kindergarten mentality
    being played out on the internet. The only person who I call a friend is a
    white guy, and he would be disappointed with me if he knew I said these things.
    He is my friend because he has earned that friendship, and that friendship does
    not include anything related to race. Don’t mind my silly antics. Again, I
    stand with you against anyone who targets you because you are with a cute black
    woman. Hug her, kiss her, and make her feel safe. Nothing else from me.

  • Mexoplex

    didnt know dont care what color you are. all i said was “Kobe stay away from those white women”. YOU interjected your un asked for opinion.
