In a recent interview with TMZ, former NBA star and current NBA analyst Charles Barkley responded to a question about whether or not President Barack Obama deserved criticism for filling out a bracket for the NCAA Basketball Tournament.
Barkley, who recently stated that he was considering voting Republican due to Obama’s policies, stated that anybody that has an issue with Obama filling out a bracket might as well just come out and say that they do not like him because he is black.
“Listen, you people in America who are upset that President Obama did a bracket … why don’t y’all just go say you don’t like him because he’s black.”
He continued, “Cut through all the BS … don’t say he take too many vacations … just say, ‘We don’t like him because he’s black.'”
