We all know how former NBA player and current TNT analyst Charles Barkley likes to speak his mind freely and how he does not shy away from the spotlight. According to the New York Daily News, Barkley had some strong words for the protesters who decided to break in or burn small businesses and nearby stores.
The New York Daily News reported that Barkley said, “Those aren’t black people, those are scumbags. There is no excuse for people to be out there burning down people’s businesses, burning down police cars.”
Barkley also supported the decision not to prosecute Officer Darren Wilson by saying, “The true story came out from the grand jury testimony. Three or four witnesses, who were black, said exactly what the cop [WILSON] said.”
In the end, everyone is entitled to their opinion but it should stop there and never lead to violence because that is ultimately hurting our society even more.
