“Man, I feel most white folks and Black individuals are nice folks. I actually imagine that in my coronary heart, however I feel our system is about up the place our legislators, whether or not they’re Republicans or Democrats, are designed to make us not like one another to allow them to maintain their grasp of cash and energy. They divide and conquer.

 

I really imagine in my coronary heart most white folks and Black individuals are superior folks, however we’re so silly following our legislators, whether or not they’re Republicans or Democrats, and their solely job is, ‘Hey, let’s make these folks not like one another. We don’t stay of their neighborhoods, all of us obtained cash, let’s make the whites and Blacks not like one another, let’s make wealthy folks and poor folks not like one another, let’s scramble the center class.’ I really imagine that in my coronary heart.

Listed below are Barkley’s full feedback:

It seems as if Barkley was responding to a filmed phase that detailed how Robert F. Kennedy broke the information on April 4, 1968, to a crowd in Indianapolis — the location of the 2021 Ultimate 4 — that the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. had been assassinated. Within the phase, Kennedy — who was working for president — is seen calling on Black residents to not retaliate in anger.

Kennedy was assassinated two months later in Los Angeles.

This isn’t the primary time Barkley has spoken out on the CBS set. He has come out in opposition to the “Defund the police” motion and rejected the notion that the Nets employed coach Steve Nash due to white privilege, amongst different matters of debate.
