'We’ve got to do better as black people': Charles Barkley speaks out on recent police shootings

Daily Mail

"He's mad black people 'never get mad when black people kill each other"

. . . "Barkley's comments hit nerve with the radio host, who pointed out that police are more likely to panic around black men than other races.

"Barkley responded, saying he didn't think racial profiling was right but that he could see why white officers stereotype black people because 'some are crooks'. 

" 'There is some reason why there's racial stereotypes because some of those black people out there are committing crimes. Let's don't sit there and act like all our hands are clean,' Barkley said.  

"As for Barkley's claims that black people don't get mad when black people kill each other, Le Batard said 'that's not true'. 

" 'We don't nearly have as much outrage as when a white cop kills somebody,' Barkley shot back, after calling Le Batard out for not being black himself. 

" 'Dan, I've been black all my life, most black people I know are killed by other black people.'
