Charles Barkley shared some refreshing and blunt thoughts about the divisions in America, and everyone needs to hear his words.
It’s known that the retired NBA legend never holds back when he has something to say, and this time he touched on the chaos and carnage in America. Trust me, it’s been a minute or two since we’ve heard something this wide.
Barkley said the following Saturday afternoon prior the Final Four games starting:
Man, I think most white people and black people are great people. I really believe that in my heart, but I think our system is set up where our politicians, whether they’re Republicans or Democrats, are designed to make us not like each other so they can keep their grasp of money and power. They divide and conquer. I truly believe in my heart most white people and black people are awesome people, but we’re so stupid following our politicians, whether they’re Republicans or Democrats, and their only job is, ‘Hey, let’s make these people not like each other. We don’t live in their neighborhoods, we all got money, let’s make the whites and blacks not like each other, let’s make rich people and poor people not like each other, let’s scramble the middle class. I truly believe that in my heart.
