Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the German writer and statesman, once said, “Ignorant men raise questions that wise men answered a thousand years ago.” Benjamin Disraeli, the 1st Earl of Beaconsfield a British politician, broke it down like this, “To be conscious that you are ignorant of the facts is a great step to knowledge.” Then Benjamin Franklin put it where the goats could get it when he spit, “We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.”
Well playas…Charles Barkley has been workin’ his butt off to remain stupid since 1984!!! This dun continues to get on national television and radio talkin’ like a darn fool and that’s the edited version bruh. On Tuesday, once again, he jumps on the Dan Le Batard Show and proves to America that’s he’s the sell out that most black folks already knew that he was. This dun, in a nut shell, blamed Philando Castile for his own death by sayin’ that he shouldn’t have kept his ID in the same place as his gun. In his own words he said, “First of all every thing is happening in fast motion. What I think happened was that the cop said, ‘Can I have your ID!’ And the next thing he said was ‘I have a gun.’ And he reaches and I think the cop just panicked.” This is what this fool said out of his own mouth bruh.
Dan Le Batard then tries to save him by sayin’, “I know but Charles they’re more likely to panic around black people because there is a fear of black people.”Then this dun says, “But Dan it’s fair because some black people are out there are crooks.”
Now let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! I refuse to blame Charles Barkley anymore for bein’ an idiot! He’s proven that he’s a consistent idiot for the past 32 years!! I blame all of these fake media-types for givin’ him a platform to say what they really want to say about black folks but can’t say. So they bring this fool on to do it for them. Now Le Batard will tell you otherwise, but he keeps bringin’ him on the show and he knows he’s gonna talk crazy. And that goes for Dan Patrick too.
Charles Barkley doesn’t know his butt from a hole in the ground about ANYTHING but people keep talkin’ to him about issues concernin’ race and cutlure because he makes black folks look stupid every time he opens his mouth. Even when he’s talkin’ basketball he’s lyin’ and talkin’ crazy. I just wrote a Hot Joint entitled, “What!!?” last week about him slammin’ KD for goin’ to Golden State and tellin’ boyz that he didn’t cheat by tryin’ to jump on teams to chase a ring!! But everybody and their Aunt Ester saw him go to both Phoenix and Houston tryin’ to win a title. But y’all keep listenin’ to this dun.
But let’s get back to his comments on Le Batard’s show. To get on a national show and say “I think what happened was” is to be completely irresponsible! To blame a dun for his OWN death when he told the cop that he was gettin’ his ID is crazy. I’m not even a cop and I know that there are 10 different ways to de-escalate that situation even if the cop was nervous!
How about tellin’ ole boy to put both of his hands in the air, then get out of the car with both hands where I can see them. Put him in hand cuffs and then reach into the car and get the gun, ID and the gun permit. The professional on hand is supposed to understand how to handle that situation. Or how about callin’ for back up and makin’ him sit there with his hands either up or on the steering wheel until one of his boyz pulls up. There is no reason for the cop to panic even if he’s scared. HE’S THE FREAKIN’ PROFESSIONAL!!
But to blame Philando is to let the cop off of the hook and to make the black man look guilty of this foolishness. Then he says that black folks are crooks so that gives the cop a justified reason to panic and kill the man. White folks are crooks too Charles! Every race of people have crooks. They aren’t killin’ them for havin’ a busted tail light, sellin’ cigarettes, CD’s, playin’ with toy guns in the park or walkin’ down the street with a pop and Skittles in their hands! At some point enough is enough!!
White folks get pulled over all of the time, will curse the police officer clean out and drive off without incident and a gun is never pulled. But Charles is tellin’ a national radio audience that it’s okay to kill black folks because we’re crooks. To get on the show and go in on blacks bein’ to blame for this foolishness is beyond dancin’ the jig at this point bruh! Then he says the same ignorance that people spit up every time they wanna justify police shootings of black people. Why isn’t anybody mad when blacks kill blacks?
Where has this fool been? I grew up in the middle of the ghetto and black folks have always been mad. They don’t march and protest at the same level durin’ those circumstances because who is there to protest? The dun killin’ folks in the ghetto doesn’t work for a local, state or federal agency that is held to a standard of excellence and wasn’t sworn in to protect and serve!! The dun sellin’ drugs in the hood doesn’t work for the Drug Dealers Association of America funded by local and state tax dollars. The police are the one’s that took an oath to protect and serve. So now I’ve got to run from both the cops and the gangstas?
Again, where is this fool from? EVERYBODY in the hood knows that Lil’ Shotgun is sellin’ all the drugs and killin’ everybody. But if you live in that neighborhood or your mother lives in that neighborhood you can’t march and protest Lil’ Shotgun!! Why? Because you and yo momma will come up missin’! And anybody else that talks to the police! But if you’ve never been to the ghetto you wouldn’t know that. EVERYBODY in the hood is sick and tired of the violence but they can’t do a darn thing about it if they want to keep breathing because they don’t have the money to move. Is that real enough for you playboy?
And for all of the fools like Charles that want to show people that they’re smart by throwin’ numbers up that somebody else gave them. They’ll tell you that 93 percent of all black homicides are committed by other blacks. But what they don’t tell you is that 85 percent of all white homicides were committed by other whites. Why? Because people tend to get into arguments and fights with people that look like them because ethnicities typically run together. If the Italian cat gets into a fight at the bar with someone, the person he more likely than not is fightin’ and beefin’ with looks like him. Why? Because it’s the Italian bar that all of the Italians in the neighborhood frequent. No different than the black cat beefin’ with the dude down the street in the all black neighborhood that they both live in.
When idiots like Charles say stuff like that they’re provin’ to the world that they only know the surface area foolishness because they aren’t smart enough to dig into the root of the problem. He knows better because he grew up black in the segregated south in Leeds, Alabama in the 1960’s! But he wants the mainstream audience to like him so he trashes black folks every time he gets on a show.
You don’t find it strange that every time there is an issue of race in this country that the mainstream media runs and gets duns like Charles Barkley, Jason Whitlock and Stacy Dash to discuss it. When everybody and their baby’s momma’s momma, Ms. Jackson, knows they’re goin’ to trash the black community. Oh, and now you can throw Wendy Williams into the car with them too!
Since Barkley wants us to deal with the problem of black on black crime in the ghetto who’s gonna address the reason why there is an alarmin’ rate of homicides in the ghetto? Boyz aren’t just killin’ each other for sport out here bruh. Drugs and territory to sell drugs is at the root of the problem. Well how did the drugs get into the ghetto in the first place? The people that live there didn’t bring them in. Nobody in the hood owns an airplane, a ship to import them or a freakin’ passport to go get them.
As a matter of fact, how did ghettos in America come to be? I guess you forgot that there was such a thing as housing discrimination laws that existed up until 1968 and the amendments to that law didn’t come until 1988. So black folks were forced to live, regardless of income, in the same neighborhoods and somebody decided to drop drugs off into those neighborhoods but you can’t figure out why the crime rate is so high.
I’m not tellin’ you what I heard playboy I’m tellin’ you what I know. Both of my parents were college educated blacks in the 1950’s! When most black folks couldn’t even go to college my father was a pharmacist and my mother was a school teacher. However, I grew up on a middle class street smack dab in the middle of the ghetto in Gary, Indiana! Why? Because we couldn’t live in the suburbs. Why? Because we were black! So I watched heroin addicts walk up and down the streets in the early 1970’s as a kid even though my parents could afford to live in the suburbs.
Now you’re seein’ on the news that there is a heroin epidemic in America because it’s no longer contained to the ghetto. Somebody finally dropped it off in the suburbs. Now it’s a problem bruh! However, it wasn’t a problem when I saw it at 6 years old in 1973. But duns like Charles will tell you that it’s all black folks fault because all he wants to tell you is the surface area foolishness. Stop me when I start lyin’!
