Watch: Charles Barkley’s Incompetence on Racial Issues in America Causes an Uproar on Social Media

 

On yesterday’s edition of ESPN’s “The Dan Le Batard Show,” former NBA star and current TNT commentator Charles Barkley joins the show to talk about the recent cases of police brutality dominating national headlines.

In the interview, Barkley repeats conservative talking points as he tries to analyze the killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

Barkley says that cops “have made some mistakes, that don’t give us the right to riot and shoot cops.” Then the commentator starts diving into to the Black-on-Black crime narrative.

“Black people never get mad when Black people kill each other,” he adds. “There’s a lot of blame to go around.”

Barkley even goes as far to accuse Black people of being racist and part of the problem. The host becomes increasingly frustrated as Barkley condones racial profiling.

Many on social media have sided with Barkley, while others have denounced him.

  1. Has he explained his experences with cops. Sending president Obama to Harvard did not being asked tproduce a birth certificate and was called a liar in front on Congress.

  2. After our Ancestors became Free Slaves the money they adopted was that of our Slave owners – with limited reading and writing skills it just wasn't possible for many of them to construct and in some cases reconstruct their own Finacial Infrustructure. However, now it's more likely than ever! Thank you for the Yes, for our own Reparations!

    Unfortunately, I'm not even sure if Black Communities were even given opportunites to work on their issues….they've been so programmed, technically manufactured and under-institutionilized. It seems one racial group has had the ability to substanstially sustain financial growth quicker then the other and finance immediate community issues; whereas in Black communities we struggle usually because of financing….

  3. Barkley should add a tap dance number and take hit cooning act on tour.

  4. Dredd Scott says:

    slave owners throughout the western world were compensated for the loss of their capital and property when slavery was either abolished or ended by the one successful revolution in haiti. reparations would absolutely be an acknowledgement of historical oppression and an awareness that the economic foundation of america was built on slavery and its repercussions continue until this day.
