Charles Barkley on ‘Discrimination’: ‘I’ll Always Fight Stuff Like That’

On Wednesday’s “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” on ESPNU and ESPN Radio, host Colin Cowherd asked former NBA star and now TNT NBA analyst Charles Barkley about the Indiana Religious Freedom Law, which Barkley has already stated as means for the NCAA Final Four to be pulled from the state of Indiana.

Barkley declared that he would always fight for civil rights, because it is something close to his heart.

“Any time I hear a law that’s got a chance of any type discrimination. I try to put myself, I want to go somewhere to eat, if the people have the right to say, ‘You can’t eat here because you’re black.’ I’m like, ‘No, that’s not good.’ And that is the first thing when I released a statement about the Indiana thing. If they say, ‘We don’t allow Jewish people here; we don’t allow Italian people here. Or women.’ I’m gonna always fight stuff like that because growing up in Alabama, I’m very aware of the civil rights so stuff like that is really close to my heart.”
