Barkley should just shut up. MJ did not not say anything why should he.
All because Mj didn't, doesn't mean Barkley can't express his opinions.

MJ should take the lead, he is the biggest name in basketball. Soon it will be LBJ.

I wish MJ would say something, I know that politics will make him unpopular but he needs the courage and do something for his ppl like Barkley. MJ has a bigger name recognition than Barkley.
MJ has too many endorsement deals to fk it up and say something Black Pantherish.

No....And as far as the media giving racists a platform, does Charles feel pushed out. Charles has done very little in the way of educating black children about where they came from. He likely does not know himself. For real folks, he played basketball with his books. I bet he does not even know what continent Mexico is on or what year Columbus arrived in America and what continent that was on.
Haha, Sir Charles will never be pushed out by or from the media and I agree with CB, the media did give racists a platform with this trial and it was totally unnecessary but, the media wants viewers and rating so they'll do anything to promote themselves at the expense of others which is sad.

So what if CB doesn't go around preaching to black youths as much as you'd like?! Does that take anything away from who or what he is or what he claims to be? Nope. CB is CB and he hides nothing and pulls no punches and makes no excuses for his actions and I personally admire that. Just because you're black and famous doesn't mean you must now become the educator and voice of the entire race. Personally, I feel you'd bitch either way even if CB was educating black youths and doing everything "right".

So what you're saying is, you must know geography and "American history" to know that racism is just plain wrong?! I'd take a person that doesn't see color who doesn't know where Mexico is on a map and doesn't know their "American history" over a racist jackass who does any day.

BTW, in your humble opinion, who DID discover America?

When most black leaders say that blacks need to clean up their act, who are we to argue. Blacks even admit that they are inferior to the rest of America bc of their action or lack of, not the skin color.

We used to say that the black men is the "white men's burden" not any more . They are a burden to America.
their criminal acts cost us a trillion dollars or more each year, something has to be done about it. Even the blacks themselves said so.
