FM to get started and now stand by for the twenty minute morning show from our studios in Charlotte North Carolina. It's been said that. His legacy is complicated because of sexual assault assault charge which was dismissed in two thousand three two thousand four is it complicated for you as a woman WNBA player it's not complicated. Katie for me at all. Even if there's a few times we've been at a club at the same time Kobe's not the Kinda guy never been like you know. Go get that girl or tower or senator for this I have other. NBA Friends. That are like that he. He was never liked that. I've just never see have ever seen him. Being the kind of person that would be you do something to violate a woman or be aggressive in that way I. This is not the person that I know that Lisa. You wouldn't see it though you're listening to the twenty minute morning show for Monday February way tips. You wouldn't see it and that's possible I just I just don't I just don't believe so I got here on the twenty minute morning show. We're talking about Gayle King and Gail King's comments to Lisa Leslie and a lot of people said that you know she's reverting back to two thousand and in three rape case that was he was never charged with anything and I just thought it was distasteful for her to bring it up but I know her. CBS Yes bosses made her question Them on that. What what do you think what I agree with you? I think that back in time of Grievance and death of such alleging it is almost like a stab wounds and bring up such a hurtful memory. It has I did. I'm very optimistic so I do. TRY TO LOOK EH perspectives of things and even in my research on the situation relation with Gail. What I learned was that it wasn't necessarily that she took to just questioning about Kobe's pass rape case? They have a wide range interview long of his life. In Lisa in Kobe's great friendship and as a France Colby one wh- gail was was asking Lee so was as as his friend. How did that case you know how? How did that case make him feel feel? What was life Kobe? Dr In that time span and what happened is CBS to the most controversial part of her interview. Aim without her knowing. Put that out on the media so that makes sense then so she wanted to ask her perspective. Because it's something we don't know how oh he be dealt with that because we never heard him really talk about it outside of him apologizing to his wife and Nissim Bonner that big diamond ring and so yeah. That's a great insight insight but my thing was well the manner in which she asked the question and then when Lisa didn't answer red according to her satisfaction she c- came back and then that was the ugly part of all you to he would have never told you that we're well Gill had did say on that on that part in what I saw was that she purposely acts Lisa the question in a game because she really wanted to highlight as Lisa responded. You know it's time to let that goal. It's time to put that to bed. I think but the media should be more respectful At this time it's like if you had questions about it you've had many years to ask what's that. I don't think it's something that we should keep hanging over his legacy. I mean he went to it. Went to trial. The case was dismissed because the victim the case refused to testify so it was dismissed. And I think that that's how we should leave. Gail was making her statement. Statement a powerful statement not just the first time. She said it but she really wanted to get that message across to those listeners that it's really time to let this case go in as Gill stated if she had been if if she was on the other side of the table not knowing any other part of the interview that had gone on prior to that that moment she would have been as we all were probably offended by the topic of conversation as such a such a time. Some type so did was she wrong even bringing it up I mean. Do you think was necessary. I'm going to say it because it is a part of his legacy however he's done so much good why can you just leave that alone and talk about the good things that we don't even. I don't even know what this study is because straighten on the rig correct and you know what I think that that is a great point me honestly you know why push out the negativity right. He was a legend in. So many other ways I also I think that in anything that we do whether it's through own whether it's through music there is some ugly darkness right and sometimes that meet people where it wasn't. I think with with to me with America being so sensitive I mean you have the metoo movement you have you know men and women that are coming forward with alleged inappropriate situations that have happened and not being insensitive to any of those those things but it sells you know it. It raises the rates. And I think today people are so more interested in in how many views they can get as opposed to you know be being very sensitive to the offenses that could come across so my feelings things on Gayle King is. He is a person that gap to wishy is because of her friend. An Oprah Winfrey. She was on the cover of Time magazine as the person of the year. And I said how did she do and she you you're just you're on. CBS Good Morning News. And you've only worked in Connecticut as a broadcaster and there are so many other people who come up the ranks. Thanks and how does she get the perch herself and she's a mediocre journalists to meet but I'm not trying to put her down because she did to Kobe. I'm just saying that we knew what she got that job. And then she got on the cover of Time magazine based off of her interview with R Kelly Right. So I'm like I think everybody's everybody's being exposed now even oprah and gayle because of Harvey Weinstein you know. I think it's a lot easier to attack are black men in today. I'm just GonNa say you know it doesn't mean that they don't sometimes put themselves in compromising situations but it's a lot easier in. It's a Lapham easier on the eyes of other people to accept the religious the the realization of those types of actions in black men as opposed to any other races. I'm not saying other racist. Don't do similar things but it comes across as a little the easier to accept right and you know I have you know. I've come up during years of overhead in her TV. Maybe show and things like that. But she did a lot of catering to other calls to you. Know Why folks Love Oprah and we love Oprah because he represented us in a manner but she's never really gone out for a way to show black people that I really really love. You really love you always generic always you know. I can't go crossed the line to show you how much I really care. Because there's a lot of people that she's never had on her show because of controversial nature and I'm like it can compromise her views right. What do you think about it? I mean I I think that when you are when your success is in the hands of people that don't look like you you have to play need their game their way. Otherwise is fat prime example. Bill you know to me in some regards R Kelly to you know I mean I'm not GonNa say that are. Kelly is in at fault for putting himself in certain situations. But I don't I personally don't think he did everything that they're saying he did. Neither neither I mean the woman. I think that there are a lot of times where women throw themselves at men because of who they are in the status did they have because they're looking for something in when they don't get what they're looking for Dennis. Oh I've been taking advantage of all afternoon and people may not agree there but you know what I'm a woman. I was young and at times. Hot Mattel because mom my imagination places where I couldn't go physically and so so some people do ride the wave of doing whatever they can't get themselves were they wanna be in in certain interviews that I've seen in her R. Kelly even said that certain parents of these young girls kind of pushed him in the front line. You know because they were expecting something from it is a dumb man really so I mean he's a dummy but I love him and he's a victim of a lot of other things but going back to gail. I just think that she got caught. She thought she was invincible. When you get to be a black person on the cover of Time magazine and white people have propped you up then they can always take you down in? The black community is very upset. Because we don't understand is very very hard for us to understand why you would have to do that. And the man did and is not a bad person and I'm saying so anyway uh-huh in on it saint topic. I forget the the young journalist named who actually started this colby but if you remember shortly after Koby have I died. There was a tweet that went out from a young occasion journalism in sheep. Put it back into rotation about the the rib cage and she was getting blasted heavily on on twitter for her in insensitivities of him just passing and I and I honestly you know this is just my thoughts and my my opinion about honestly think that that was almost a retaliation that you know. CBS Network wanted to put now black face in that same rotation. There was a white person I who came out. She suffered a lot of controversy. Diversey a Lotta kickback from her statements. About bringing it back up now. They had a way to put gail up there. You know whether it was you know about her just kind of sliding the conversation conversation in or whether it was there on setup say okay well we're going to get hurt and talked about this in an asphalt we're going to put. This is the deal. Tie that when you before this these pieces even air the lawyers have to go into tape room and look at it and say if I can't be cut that out that out and gail was right there. Uh of course watching the whole thing and say okay. I don't like that. Let's take this out so I know she tried to deflect on. CBS BUT CBS did did not make you ask that question to Lisa Leslie in the manner that you did a follow up with. We have a problem as if he was asked to. Let it go. It is you're talking about Will you mill yours free. And I don't think he would have done every day. You know. I don't think you would you you know every truly no you know the why the negativity Circulates is fast as it does You you know. Our thoughts and prayers are still in his family and the other families that suffered a tragic loss and I just hope going forward. We can't put that tip it.
