8 Times Charles Barkley Said Something Ludicrous About Black People and Race

Charles Barkley went the weekend without insulting Black people, which, at the rate he set in the last month, was an accomplishment. It’s also ironic that the former NBA star has been on so many media outlets firing off his right wing nonsense because he said last week: “I don’t like talking about race issues anymore to the media.” But he talked … and talked … and … in the process, has a portfolio of comments that offend many Black people.

“I can be bought. If they paid me enough, I’d work for the Klan.”

 

Black People

“We all have bad characters in our groups. Black is not always right, and white is not always wrong. We as Black people, we have a lot of crooks. We can’t just wait until something like (the Michael Brown shooting) happens. We have to look at ourselves in the mirror. There is a reason that they racially profile us in the way they do. Sometimes it is wrong, and sometimes it is right.”
