Former basketball star and NBA analyst, Charles Barkley, shows a better understanding of race than most political commentators. Here is what he had to say during the “Final Four Show” on Saturday, April 3, 2021.
“Yay, but the one thing I took out of that piece was, man I think most white people and black people are great people. I really believe that in my heart. But I think our system is set up for our politicians, whether they are Republicans Or democrats, are designed to make us not like each other so they can keep their grasp of money and power. They divide and conquer. I truly believe in my heart that most white people and black people are awesome people, but we’re so stupid, following are politician, whether they are Republicans or democrats, and their only job is, hey, let’s make these people not like each other. We don’t live in their neighborhoods. We all got money. Let’s make the whites and blacks not like each other. Let’s make rich people and poor people not like each other. Let’s scramble the middle-class. I truly believe that in my heart.”
