Last one is my favorite -
Quote: And in a marked departure from other prominent black leaders who have questioned tactics used by officers and, in some cases, accused officers of racial profiling and outright racism, Barkley supported police officers, especially those who work in black neighborhoods.

I kind of 'knew' his name - but I couldn't tell you on sight what he does for a living and I wouldn't recognize him on the street. He's not really a black leader . . .

Like he's not someone who has the credentials of a Coates or a Cory Booker or a Harold Ford or a Melissa HP, etc. etc.

And he's certainly not as well spoken or articulate as Chris Rock . . . for example.

Don't forget Charle's DUI Arrest - I give bravenak to credit to reminding us of this one:
At the DU link bravenak provided us with this . . .

According to the officer who wrote the report, "He told me that he ran the stop sign because he was in a hurry to pick up the girl I saw get in the passenger seat."

The officer continues: "He asked me to admit that she was 'hot.' He asked me, 'You want the truth?' When I told him I did he said, 'I was gonna drive around the corner and get a b**w job. He then explained that she had given him a 'b**w job' one week earlier and said it was the best one he had ever had in his life."

The report says when Barkley was taken to the station, he told one of the employees, "I'll tattoo my name on your ass" if he helped "get him out of the DUI." According to the report, "He laughed and then quickly corrected himself and said, 'I'll tattoo your name on my ass' and then laughed again."

The report also says officers "found a handgun in the vehicle" which was immediately impounded. The report doesn't say if the handgun was legal or not, and the only thing that we know for sure was loaded...

Excuse while I have a Sister Sarah Alaskastan moment -
Charles Barkley says something

and I respond . . .

In what regard Charlie?

Eh? The Republicans will vote for him so that's good for his career. They always ignore that kind of skeevy behavior.
