Involving Seattle Seahawks Russell Wilson
Barkley was asked about the controversy involving Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who has reportedly been chastised by some of his black teammates for not being “black enough.”
Barkley blasted “unintelligent” black people and said that they, not racism, are the reason for black people’s struggles.
When you are black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other black people,” Barkley said.
“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,” he continued. “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.”
