During the ongoing Ferguson protests and the protests about the choking death by police in New York City, Charles Barkley is getting more attention than usual. And now a sports program has dedicated a portion of its broadcast to social issues.
It’s not the first time Barkley has expressed outspoken opinions on race. He is well known for having unique opinions on issues of racism. But at a time when tension is still high over the grand jury decisions, seems the media focus on Charles Barkley has put him in the unique position of sports commentator and civil right commentator.
Charles Barkley. Outspoken on sports, outspoken on race.
