Perhaps someone should draft this guy to run for office! I love his commonsense and his straight talk from the heart! Very refreshing! Here are some highlights from his recent interview below!
Barkley on Media’s Coverage of Feguson: “I can’t believe anything I hear on television anymore. And, that’s why I don’t like talking about race issues with the media anymore, because they (the media) love this stuff, and lead people to jump to conclusions. The media shouldn’t do that. They never do that when black people kill each other.”
Barkley on the Rioters: “not real black people”…….“scumbags”
Barkley on respecting Law Enforcement: “We have to be really careful with the cops, because if it wasn’t for the cops we would be living in the Wild, Wild West in our neighborhoods. We can’t pick out certain incidentals that don’t go our way and act like the cops are all bad. Do you know how bad some of these neighborhoods would be without the cops?”
Barkley on Obama’s handling of ISIS: “Obama needs to put some real bodies over there and start shooting those damn guys from ISIS. We can’t wait any longer, those guys are getting out of hand. We can’t just bomb them from a distance, they have to put boots on the ground, they have to go over there and shoot them. We need to put some bodies on the ground and shoot them dead.”
