Charles Barkley mentions that he does not want support from “Messy Jesse” or “Permed Up Al” when he runs for governor of Alabama:

“I don’t believe in them. They always play the race card, and you can’t always play the race card. Sometimes the race card is needed but not in every situation. We have to hold blacks more accountable for their actions.”

    Sometimes the race card is needed but not in every situation. We have to hold blacks more accountable for their actions.

    I have to co-sign with Barkley on that note.

    Just in regards to that quote, he could be a total ass behind the scenes.

  • Strong Black Man

    I agree with him..Jesse and Al are poverty pimps, but charles barkley is a sucka

  • justme

    Chuck has a point!

  • Black to tha Bone

    Mad props to Sir Charles. He is an ambitious go getter with a legendary white girl game.

  • tj

    Oh Please. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have far more experience than Charles Barkley. If throwing a basketball around makes someone a Governor then Michael Jordan should be president.

    THese athletes are such megalomaniacs.

  • Nyeve

    Charles is right and its time we started calling out our leaders in order for them to become more responsible. Jesse Jackson less so but Al Sharpton is riddiculous. My husband calls him Juanita Sharpton-Weekes. He’s just like Rev Weekes, using a noble cause as a career opportunity. He makes the issue of our race into a national joke. Anything to do with black people it becomes the standard thing in the press “The Reverend Al Sharpton has raised objections to the use of the phrase ‘blackboard’ “. No one takes it seriously when we are discriminated against. ” oh you know what those blacks are like, always playing the race card or calling in Al Sharpton”

  • NotoriousOne

    I definitely don’t agree w/ Barkley on a lot of the stuff he says but on this one he’s definitely on point.

    @ Strong Black Man…you killin’ it w/ “Poverty Pimp” that’s the sad a*s truth though.

  • memchee

    Charles is a bit out of touch…….fully brained washed by the media.

    However, Jesse’s image as portrayed in the media is his own fault.

    Anyone who watched the Katrina media barrage would have a helluva lot more respect for Al, Jesse and the NAACP.

    Yes, Charles needs to take a seat.

  • cystal

    The media is going to have a field day with this and I don’t blame them actually. It is all over the news in Dallas/Ft. Worth (WFAA).Watch and see, it is simply a matter of time before these poster boy thugs are jailed for killing somebody. I don’t give a damn what that whiteboy said to them, six should not jump on and beat down one. Since when do Black men fight so dirty.

  • Jane Doe

    I agree with Charles. Black Folks ALWAYS play the race card….ALWAYS!!

  • PATHETIC!

    READ THE STORY ON SANDRAROSE.COM

  • capt'n backslap

    I kinda hope he loses, so he can stay on “Inside the NBA” he’s the funniest dude on TV now that “The Office” is on strike…..

  • da darkness

    the black people of today so many think they are in power. these black men…….feds after one, t-mobile my fav five comedian, and one has aledged of having ties with the hit of dr. king jr. (source: 89.3fm atl)

THEY PLAY THAT RACE CARD TO DEATH! wHO IN THE HELL GAVE THEM THE ok TO REPRESENT BLACK PEOPLE EVERTIME THERE IS A RACIAL CRISIS GOING ON? THEM NEGROS DONT SPEAK FOR ME!!!

  • Black, yet very well educated

    The Jena 6 thugs are a disgrace. Never will get behind such a stupid cause. We just continue to drag ourselves through the mud looking like violent out of control savages.
