Charles Barkley Stumps Black Lives Matter With One Question

Charles Barkley’s recently made an epic statement to Black Lives Matter.  Sir Charles has made it pretty clear from the start that he couldn’t care less what Black Lives Matter think about him. Now he is being pelted with hate from the Black Lives Matter community because of his support for American police. His harsh words are drawing criticism.

In a recent interview with ESPN’s “The Dan Le Batard Show”, Charles Barkley made some pretty strong statements about how he feels about the current anti-police issue in America.

Barkley said, “The cops have made some mistakes; black people have made some mistakes. We have to sit back and be honest with each other. The cops have made some mistakes, that don’t give us the right to riot and shoot cops.”

This statement rubbed many Black Lives Matter activists the wrong way, because it does not fit their narrative that all American police officers are bigoted killers, even black officers. BLM slacktivists began to attack him via social media, and Barkley fired back even stronger.  Here is his reply on the Sirius Radio show The Bleacher Report:

“Black people only like you when you say what they want you to say. I’m a big boy. I can handle the heat. If it wasn’t for the cops we’d be living in the wild, wild west. It’s not as simple as that ‘it’s always the cops fault’. We as black people have made some mistakes. We’ve got to do better. Cops are important, they’re very significant. We as black people have to do a better job of policing ourselves. The cops have made some mistakes, I think everybody has to admit that, but we can’t as black people, every time something goes wrong think ‘it’s the cop’s fault.”

Charles went on in the interview to tear down the Black Lives Matter movement.  He pointed out one major flaw within the Black Lives Matter movement which everyone else seems to forget. Barkley lashed out, “The only problem with black people you got too many black people acting like they’re activists and they’re not doing anything to help the black community.  They’re part of the problem, not part of the solution.  Don’t just get on TV and say you’re an activist.”

Right after pointing out this flaw, he asked any and all those who dislike his stance on police in America the question that we would all love to hear the answer to, “What have you done to actually enhance the black community?”

Before anyone could turn his question around on him, he answered it:

“I told this guy, you don’t even want to get into what I’ve done cuz I’m just going to embarrass you. I said I’ve given like $13 million out of my own pocket. He said ‘what?’ I said ‘Yeah, but don’t you worry about it. You ain’t never gonna have that much to give away.’ And he tried to counter me and I said, ‘you can go check my bank account, brother.'”

  1. “I gave a million dollars to my high school to send black kids to college.
  2. I gave a million dollars to an all black high school in Alabama to send kids to college.
  3. I gave Auburn two million dollars.
  4. I just gave Morehouse in Atlanta a million.
  5. I just gave Wounded Warriors a million.
  6. I gave Hurricane Katrina a million.”



It is pretty apparent how Charles Barkley feels about Black Lives Matter.  He puts his money where his mouth is.  It is also pretty clear that he supports police.  Sir Charles has our respect.
