PHILADELPHIA — If you’re a disgruntled black person searching for someone to blame, NBA legend Charles Barkley says look no further than in the mirror. During an interview on a Philadelphia radio station, Sir Charles spoke his mind on the war between educated blacks and thugs. “One of the reasons we’re never going to be successful as a whole [is] because of other black people,” he said. “And for some reason we are brainwashed to think, if you’re not a thug or an idiot, you’re not black enough.”

Barkley, 53, then went on to say it’s time for African-Americans to quit blaming white people for their problems. “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,” he said.

“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. There are a lot of black people who are unintelligent, who don’t have success. It’s best to knock a successful black person down because they’re intelligent, they speak well, they do well in school, and they’re successful… We’re the only ethnic group who says, ‘Hey, if you go to jail, it gives you street cred.’”

“It’s just typical BS that goes on when you’re black, man.”

Do you agree with Barkley?

Is there a war going on between thugs and intelligent blacks?

  1. I have nothing but respect for Charles Barkley

  2. Bullshit! White people keep each other down too and they kill each other. Stop coonin nigga!

    Barkley is right. And BTW the #1 cause of death for white men is heart disease and the #1 cause of death for black men is OTHER BLACK MEN. If black lives matter then stop killing each other.

  4. This is some real shit.

  5. Man this race shit sucks …I’m Mexican ya ya I know I could hear all the hate already but man really wish everyone could just see were all fucken lame ass humans …all of us …do we have social problems? Of course we do it comes with being human but we also have the capability to change … But to be honest the future feels hopeless and sad. At least in the end no matter what race you are we all end up in the same place and the worms and maggots get the last laugh.

  6. I guess you forget about the white people that go in schools, movie theaters, and marathons and kill other white people. Stop trash talking black people and look at the big picture


  8. The big picture is that black people commit more crime per capita than any other race. It’s not even close. Considering blacks are only 13 percent of the population, they shouldn’t be committing over 40 percent of violent crime and more than half the murders.


  10. damn is barkley in the KKK?

  11. I don’t think blacks are the only ones who do it, they just use race to make fun of those who are good in school. Every ethnic group does it, Whites and Asians just call it geek but it means the same thing-someone who is nerdy and doesn’t know how to have fun

    Charles barkley is 10000% correct!!! Stop keep blaming white people, jeez!!

  13. @Ty98ink: Geek means someone who is socially awkward, has odd hobbies, and is generally unathletic. People in white an Asian communities never look down on someone for trying to become more intelligent. It is far worse to get terrible grades and drop out of school in white/asian communities. Of course there are a few losers who will pick on any intelligent people, but it is nothing like the apathy and hostility black communities have toward education.

  14. 1)blacks do not want to acclimate to becoming a successful American cause they feel that would be betraying their own race or losing their identity. 2) the THOUSANDS of blacks who are not successful due to laziness, criminal behavior or lack of aspirations, criticize the blacks who are successful, “crabs in a barrel”. Black people are 93% more likely to be a victim of their own race. Blacks are their own worst enemy.

  15. Exactly, Charles gets it! The number one problem with blacks today is the Hip Hop/Gangsta culture. I believe that’s the cause of the breakdown of the black family (black men put the gangsta lifestyle before their woman and their children).

  16. He is right. But today you are not good if you speak the truth. He says
    what he feels and then gets cursed out because he does not agree with them. The black people can say what they feel but if a white person does its of course RACIST. Charles B is right but then he is called a racist name. Real nice. I never had a problem with black people until I found out how racist they are against whites and use that race card to get everything for free. I worked my whole life to support my family and YOUR family.

    Thanks Barkley for keepin it 100

  18. What a free-thinker this Barkley is. He’s a credit to his race and a breath of fresh air. How many blacks are talking like this? This man could run for congress and get the white and black vote. I hope some blacks are getting his message. It’s courageous.

  19. Charles Barkley shouldn’t be telling white people a bunch of negative shit about black people it’s the same thing when a mother talks negative about a father to his son, I’m not saying we are white folks father but it’s has the same impact, white people already have a negative idea about black people as a whole.

  20. Barkley has a white wife and white friends…. looks like he hates being black
