  1. I see a connection here. Maybe we should outlaw professional sports. I think the city of Cleveland already has.

  3. Why does the media give any air time to this racist Barkley to spread his filthy views?

    What? He’s bla… no shit?

    Well, fine, but my point still stands. I can’t wait to see Chris Mathews rip him a new one.

  4. Sir Charles would squash Matthews like an ant.

  5. #3, Steve Skubinna: Never mind Chrissy Matthews; I’m more interested in the reactions of MSNBC “commentators of color”: Al Sharpton, Toure’, and Melissa Harris-Perry (whom I’m convinced is a good-looking, self-hatin’ white woman dipped in caramel). And, has Jason Whitlock responded?

  6. ^ I, too, am awaiting breathlessly Toure’s response. THEN I’ll decide how racist Barkley REALLY is.

  7. I saw a statistic a few years back: half of the victims of murder in the USA were black and 90% of them were killed by other blacks. We could cut the murder rate almost in half if blacks would just stop killing blacks.

  8. “In 2005, offending rates for blacks were more than 7 times higher than the rates for whites”

    I don’t understand why Bob Costas wasn’t honest. He could have said:

    “Black people should not be allowed to own guns”.

  9. Bruce, maybe Costas wasn’t being dishonest.

    Maybe the problem is, he doesn’t consider black people people.

  10. Bob should stop and think a minute: what kind of gun was it the DA claimed OJ Simpson used? Oh, that’s right — he used a knife. Unstable people will use whatever is available.

    BTW, Costas is an ass. I’m not sure why anything he says would be considered important.

  13. Can’t they just blame Bush?

    Or maybe Robert Zimmerman?

  14. Sometimes people make the mistake of thinking Charles Barkley is a clown. Certainly he does a clown act, but Charles knows he’s an entertainer and that’s his gig. But he’s no clown, personally.

    The last NBA he ever played he grabbed the P.A. microphone and addressed the crowd. He thanked them and basketball for the good things in his life. He said that he owed everything he had to basketball and that basketball didn’t owe him a thing. Somehow I can’t imagine a lot of the NBA “stars” of today saying such a thing.

  15. Barkley got his dillies on the peppa tane.

  16. Bob Costas is just showing classic signs of psychological Projection.

    He doesn’t trust himself with a set of full rights, so he wants to take them from others.

  17. What makes you think Barkley is a racist. He’s just speaking what he feels is truth. I didn’t seee anything that could be viewed as racist in his comments…
