Default Charles Barkley speaks the truth

I've always liked the way Barkley speaks his mind. He doesn't worry about if what he says is politically correct, or ****** people off. I thought he was pretty spot on the other night with his comments. Hopefully the link works

I like what he says but if I remember right in the early 90’s he said that he hated White people.
Correct me if I’m wrong.

Idk about the above 90s comment on white people but I agree with the OP that I have time and again seen Chuck say something and thought he made sense and/or was speaking the truth even when it might be unpopular. Even if he said something I disagreed with I would think hard about my position because I know his record of calling it like he sees it.

While true and politicians are guilty, the biggest culprit is the media and entertainment.

I remember he did say that and thought it was odd because his wife was white. I like him and Shaq though.

Even if he said he hated white people three decades ago, people grow and change their views/attitudes/beliefs over time. That’s some cancel culture mental midgetry on display. Imagine if people went after stupid things you’ve said in the course of your life.

You can hate white people and still love one or two, maybe 10 or 20 who knows? I like Sir Charles myself and whatever off the cuff remark he feels like making he can fire away

Yes ive seen many times where he says what he thinks and hes one of the very few him and Shaq that have a level head and go against the grain.


I agree with him 100% that its in the best interest of the politicans to keep everyone divided. If we all united and got back to our roots we would drain the swamp. But i dont see that ever happening they have to much control.

That's the first thing I thought about also. He said he liked churros too, that's why he's fat. I always liked The Round Mound of Rebound, the guys hilarious.

Who cares what he said thirty years ago.

He just gave away his only child away in marriage recently.
She married a jewish guy from Long Island & says the entire family is a blessing to be a part of and he cried when the guy asked him for his blessing in asking.

But 30 years ago remember??
HES RACIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yep!!!
My daughter spent 4 years at Auburn and Chuck was always around campus, not just basketball players. His statue in front of the basketball arena is incredible as he continuously gives back to the university that always stood by him!

I am glad no one followed me around with a camera and a microphone all my life. My own mother would disown me!

I like that he will tell you what he's thinking without fear of the repercussions. Need more people that can reach as many people as he can to be that honest.

It all depends. Me personally I don’t.
But you let a prominent white person say they hate a certain people they would be ruined.
The media would destroy them.

Yep, even if it was thirty ago, and they brought it up now, you would be crucified.
