ESPN sportscaster Stephen A. Smith doesn’t understand why the African American community is so dead set against the Republican Party and conservatives. He finds it absurd that blacks don’t even give the GOP a fair hearing.
The conversation arose as Smith, who says he is a registered independent, was asked to respond to former Cleveland Browns player Jim Brown’s comments that Lakers player Kobe Bryant couldn’t understand the American black community because Bryant spent a large portion of his youth living in Italy.
Stephen A. Smith, co-host of ESPN’s “First Take.”
Smith called Brown’s comments “inappropriate” and went on to say:
When it comes to the African-American community, you have a plethora of individuals. For example, the black population hasn’t given the Republican Party more than 15% of its vote since 1964. And anybody who is deemed a black conservative, I am not one of them — I’m a registered Independent, just to get that out of the way — but those that I know who are black conservatives are considered pariahs and are ostracized in our communities and it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
Smith made his comments on On ESPN’s First Take with co-host Skip Bayless.
