Kobe Bryant


What tragic news this evening that basketball legend Kobe Bryant has been killed in a helicopter crash.  He was an inspiration to so many people both within the world of basketball an beyond.  He was just 41 years old and leaves a wife and 4 children.   Let's not forget too that sadly 4 other people were also killed in the crash.  Such a tragedy for all their families.

 I dont follow basketball at all but had heard of Bryant. Sad news. It's a bit like someone such as Agassi or McEnroe dying in tennis terms and will have a massive impact on the sports fans.

 

This website rated him as the 5th best NBA player of all time, so effectively in the world.

I think Kobe would be proud of the Milwaukee Bucks tonight. Refusing to play will resonate.

Sometimes you've got to make a stand.

This chasm in the US between police and the black population is terrible, the police need to take a long hard look now and decide how they change.

 The US will need a new president to get any real momentum behind change for the better.

Trouble is Trump looks to fancy turning it into a racial / police election if covid and hence the economy remain against him.

And I wouldn't be sure that such a strategy, and the numbers from the majorities vs the minorities, won't work.

Divide and rule

Despite Biden being ahead in the polls, I still fear that Trump could get in.  Let's not forget that Hilary Clinton beat him quite easily in the popular vote but still lost.  Voter suppression is my b biggest concern with Trump trying to defund the US Postal service to make it difficult to vote by post, while at the same time, closing voting stations in poorer areas.

I sincerely hope that Biden gets in and this is seen as the world starting to turn against populism and return to more normal times.
