Stephen A. Smith Arrogantly Defends Charles Barkley Against Critics; Is This a New Low?

On the July 27 edition of ESPN’s “First Take,” sports journalist and commentator Stephen A. Smith stirs controversy once more by backing former NBA star and current TNT commentator, Charles Barkley’s simplistic analysis of intra-racial crime.


Barkley stated in a recent interview that Black people need the police more than anyone and that police brutality pales in comparison to Black-on-Black crime.

In the 13-minute clip, Smith says that Barkley is 1000 percent correct. While the commentator acknowledges that police brutality is bad, he tells his critics to kiss off.
