NBA legend Charles Barkley says Democrats & Republicans collude into dividing Americans in order to maintain control of America: ‘We’re so stupid following our politicians’
Barkley, an NBA star who became a sports analyst after retiring from basketball, unleashed a passionate attack on both political camps in America, accusing Democrats and Republicans of deliberately making people not like each other.
I think our system is set up where our politicians, whether they’re Republicans or Democrats, are designed to make us not like each other so they can keep their grasp of money and power.
“I truly believe in my heart most white people and black people are awesome people, but we’re so stupid following our politicians, whether they’re Republicans or Democrats,”

Barkley went on to describe what he believes to be the thinking behind the divide-and-conquer strategy: “Hey, let’s make these people, not like each other.
We don’t live in their neighborhoods, we all got money, let’s make the whites and blacks not like each other, let’s make rich people and poor people not like each other, let’s scramble the middle class.”
Barkley was speaking on Saturday ahead of the NCAA Final Four matchup between Baylor and Houston at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indiana.
Charles Barkley Responding To Anniversary Of RFK Breaking News Of The Assassination Of Martin Luther King Jr.
Barkley’s comments followed a featured segment that detailed how on April 4, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy broke the news about the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. to a crowd in Indianapolis.
JFK’s brother called on people to seek compassion and justice rather than anger and revenge, saying the vast majority of Americans, both black and white, want to live in peace with each other, which was the message Barkley said he took away from the speech.
Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated two months later.
Charles Barkley Calls Out The “Defund The Police” Idiocy.
Barkley is well-known for being outspoken about current events in both sports and politics. He was an early critic of the ‘defund the police’ movement, arguing that poor black communities would be hit hardest by a spike in crime if there is less policing.
“Who are black people supposed to call, Ghostbusters, when we have crime in our neighborhood?” he asked, calling for police and prison reform instead.

Hysterically, Opinion On Charles Barkley Was Divided Along Party Lines
Many conservatives cheered Barkley for his spot-on analysis of whose truly responsible for the supposed racial tensions dividing America.
White supremacy is made to be a much bigger deal than it actually is. Obviously it exists, but it’s such a fringe group of psychos that the media plays up to be much bigger than they are. They want racial division, that’s how they achieve it.

A majority of the left just continued to regurgitate the left’s groupthink, which of course, proves Barkley’s point.
I wish I could agree with Mr Barckley but the real world is not looking like this.
