Charles Barkley Says Ferguson Protesters Aren't Real Black People, They're Scumbags...
Famed NBA player and sports analyst Charles Barkley cant stop himself from making offensive statements about African Americans, whether hes blaming uneducated black people for holding minorities back or insisting that every Southern black parent beats their kids.
Barkley recently added another notch to his belt, the day after a grand jurys decision not to charge officer Darren Wilson with the death of unarmed black teen Michael Brown. During an interview on Philadelphias 97.5 The Fanatic, Barkley told Mike Missanelli that he agreed with the grand jurys decision not to indict Wilson. His response raised eyebrows:
The true story came out from the grand jury testimony.
Barkley continued, stating that he was made aware of key forensic evidence, and several black witnesses that supported Officer Darren Wilsons story for the first time Monday night.
I cant believe anything I hear on television any more. And, thats why I dont like talking about race issues with the media any more, because they [the media] love this stuff, and lead people to jump to conclusions. The media shouldnt do that. They never do that when black people kill each other.
Barkley predicted that moving forward, police distrust could be a massive issue, if it wasnt already.
We have to be really careful with the cops, because if it wasnt for the cops we would be living in the Wild, Wild West in our neighborhoods. We cant pick out certain incidentals that dont go our way and act like the cops are all bad. Do you know how bad some of these neighborhoods would be without the cops?
Perhaps most shocking of all was Barkleys statement about the people protesting in Ferguson. Barkley said:
They arent real black people. They are all scumbags. There is no excuse for people to be out there burning down peoples businesses, burning down police cars.
