Barkley: Blacks Keep Each Other Down, Not Whites or Cops Mike Vance September 18, 2016 News Charles Barkley tells it like he sees it when it comes to blacks in America. For instance, he says blacks keep each other down. Not whites or cops like many other blacks think. From the interview: “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.” He wasn't done, either. “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.” Barkley: Blacks Keep Each Other Down This is a very different story than you usually hear. Usually white people are blamed for he decisions of inner city blacks. Like and share on Facebook if you agree with Sir Charles.
