    Speaking on the radio show "Afternoons with Anthony Gargano and Rob Ellis," Barkley was asked his opinion on Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson, who was the subject of an article detailing allegations he wasn't "black enough."

    Barkley fired back:

    "We as black people are never going to be successful, not because of you white people, but because of other black people. When you are black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other black people," Barkley said.

    Barkley, a native of Leeds, said African Americans are too concerned with street cred than true success and that's holding the community back.

    "For some reason we are brainwashed to think, if you're not a thug or an idiot, you're not black enough. If you go to school, make good grades, speak intelligent, and don't break the law, you're not a good black person. It's a dirty, dark secret in the black community.


    "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. It's just typical BS that goes on when you're black, man."

    NBA legend Charles Barkley defended indicted Vikings running back Adrian Peterson on Sunday’s edition of “NFL Today,” saying black parents “whip” their kids “all the time.”

    “Whipping – we do that all the time. Every black parent in the South is going to be in jail under those circumstances,” Barkley said.

    He also argued that he was “beat with switches” by his parents when he was a kid, adding that the media refers to it as “beating a child” while some parents call it “spanking” or “whipping.”

    “I think we have to really be careful trying to teach other parents how to discipline their kids. That’s a very fine line,” Barkley added.

    Barkley is always right on about blacks in society. If he could only become the new sharpton and Jackson we might see a huge shift in the way the black man treats other blacks.

    They don't listen to Morgan Freeman either. They only listen to people that tell them what they want to hear.

    Street cred = the level to which everyone else thinks you might be able to beat them up and/or kill them should the two of you get into some kind of confrontation.

    If you're black, highest street cred wins in life vs things like education, being well spoken, having a successful career based on legal income etc

    Ebenezer: Are there no prisons?

    First Collector: Plenty of prisons.

    Ebenezer: And the union workhouses - are they still in operation?

    First Collector: They are. I wish I could say they were not.

    Ebenezer: Oh, from what you said at first I was afraid that something had happened to stop them in their useful course. I'm very glad to hear it.

    The above comment proves what a racist you truly are. So in your small mind, blacks aren't smart enough to be hackers, scientist or anything that requires brain power? You put blacks in a box. All black people are thugs and gangsters out to get mighty whitey.

    I guess these young geniuses are made up by pathetic, weak minded white liberals. :rolleyes:

Carson, who plans to become a quantum physicist, is taking calculus, physics, history and religion in his first semester. Given that he was devouring chapter books by age 2 and attending high school by age 5, the boy genius might reach his goal of attaining a doctorate degree before age 20.
