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.
