Former NBA great Charles Barkley is generating huge controversy for calling out “unintelligent” black people for criticizing successful black people as “acting white” or not acting black enough.
Barkley’s comments aired during an interview on the Philadelphia radio show “Afternoons with Anthony Gargano and Rob Ellis,” Barkley was asked about a rumor that Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was getting criticism from his black teammates for not being “Black enough.”
Barkley unleashed a big-time monologue on the subject, lashing Blacks who think that “if you’re not a thug or an idiot, you’re not black enough.”
”Unfortunately, as I tell my white friends, we as black people, we’re never going to be successful, not because of you white people, but because of other black people. When you’re black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other black people. It’s a dirty, dark secret; I’m glad it’s coming out.”
And that was just the beginning. Expect serious waves from this soapbox encounter tomorrow in and out of the sports world, as word of this amazing tirade spreads.
