Former NBA star Charles Barkley claims politicians intentionally “divide” the American people to maintain their positions of “power.”
During the “Final Four Show” Barkley, an analyst for “Inside the NBA,” injected political commentary into the sports broadcast.
“Man, I think most white people and black people are great people. I really believe that in my heart,” he remarked. “But 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 [on] money and power.”
Barkley went on to explain he believes politicians are fueling racial and class divisions for their own gain. “They divide and conquer. I truly believe in my heart most white people and black people are awesome people,” he lamented. “But we are so stupid following our politicians, whether they are Republicans or Democrats, and their only job is, ‘Hey, let’s make these people not like each other.”
“We don’t live in their neighborhoods. [We’ve] all got money,” he said of politicians. “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.’”
Charles Barkley said that politicians are driving racial divisions for political gain.

Barkley’s recent commentary isn’t the first time he has voiced his opinion on politics. In September of 2019, he told radio host Michael Smerconish, “We need to start holding you Democrats accountable because they’ve been taking black people’s votes, and they only talk to black people every four years.”
“All of these politicians only talk to black people every four years because they want their vote,” he continued. “Oh, actually, the Republicans don’t, the Democrats do. But when they get elected, they do nothing in the four years in-between.”
Earlier that summer, he accused both parties of neglecting black voters. “I think all politicians take black folks for granted. They talk to black folks every four years and that’s about it … and then do nothing about it,” Barkley said. “Both parties suck in that aspect.”
“It’s an economic thing … and that’s what both parties have been neglecting, especially the Democratic Party,” he continued. “Every black person I know has always voted Democratic and, with the exception of a few guys who can play sports, all those people are still poor.”
As a middle class white male I totally agree with Charles! These Evil elites keep us at each other’s throats while they are stealing the World’s wealth, etc!!!
Think of it as a coordinated attack. It can hardly be a coincidence that all of the following are aligned with each other:
The entire democRAT partY;
All of the RINO’s;
The Deep State;
The SO-CALLED “education system”;
The worse-than-useless UN;
The Trilateral Commission;
Center for American “Progress”;
Open Society Institute;
IMO, the master coordinators of this international travesty are the members of the Globalist CABAL, which in turn is a puppet of none other than lucifeRsataNbeelzeBUGGERER.

You do a huge disservice to everyone by assigning the evil involved to an imaginary character. Name the REAL devils, Soros, Pelosi, etc., etc. etc. You can NEVER hang an imaginary character for treason.
we obviously can’t hang a real one, either! All the democrats that have done & all the ones continuing to do evil against us “lowlife” citizens have gotten exposed for the evil they are doing & yet they aren’t being arrested for their crimes. They need to be held accountable for their crimes, just as you or I would be if we got caught doing the dirty deeds they are doing.
soro$$$$$$ is just one of the higher-profile international money launderers serving the Globalist CABAL. Hanging him would certainly help, but only for a while. toM steyeR is probably another. A roll call of the bilderberG grouP would reveal quite a number of the globalists who want our sovereignty dissolved.

Hanging all that you named for treason would be a great start, but as long as their puppet masters remain alive, it is assured that the problems will return.

We can NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN/. This country and all of us have grown so much that we can not allow the democrats to harm the advance we have made. The only hope the dems have is divide us all and that CAN NOT HAPPEN. We are all children of God and citizens of his United States of America. TOGETHER WE STAND.
Division only serves the dividers. Myriad factions foment and exploit fear, hate, bigotry, ignorance, gullibility, selfishness, etc. in order to gain money and power. Most of us fall into the trap in one way or another.
Charles has it exactly right!
He really said it just as it is..it vould not have ben put any plainer
Charles Barkley needs a loudspeaker so that everybody can hear his message.
I’d vote for Charles! Amen
that is the fact and I do agree with Charles he is the man of the hour, SPOT ON CHARLES.
Charles exactly divide and deflect while they continue to rob us blind 95% of all this stimulus never makes it to the people paying for it the American taxpayer!!!! But sure as hell is being diverted to all the crooked politicians and their friends!! It a pyramid scheme !!
Charles run for office and help clean this garbage up!!!! You got my vote and I’m sure 100 million others
You can’t make a poor person middle class or rich. The outcome of a person’s life is the one who works hard and makes their on way, step by step. All these people who talk a good game is the only thing they do. If it comes to getting out and beating the bushes and help someone, you will not see them doing anything but talk.
Perfectly said Sir Charles
Charles, I get what you’re saying. Now why don’t you go out and tell your people exactly that. Most live to vote DEMONKRAP every 4 years, and they still blame Republicans for everything, even though it’s the Democrats who want them in the plantation mindset!
joe biden is a racist through and through.
Charles Barkley ought to be in the Senate.
A bad habit. Voting democrat hasn’t done a thing for blacks. Democrats only create more division.
Fianally, somebody can stand there and call people, people, not black or white. The politicians are putting people against people to keep the power they think they have. Remember that the Democrats won’t allow prayer in school, can’t say the pledge of allegiance, can’t post. The Ten Commandments, why, they are afraid of God. People trust in Him, and the power grabbers don’t.
The power grabbers hate God because He’s in their way!
Barkley is 100% correct
I believe that Mr. Barkley is correct.
Pretty smart guy if often a bit on the obnoxious side or perhaps abrasive side. I always get a kick out of him, and he is often spot on, and in this case I think 100% spot on. And we, the voters are too ignorant to vote intelligently so the beat goes on!
Donald Trump and Allen West have both been described as abrasive. THAT is precisely what I LIKE about them!
Richard William Faith
He couldn’t be more correct !!!!
Together we stand….divided we fall…….. You Go Charles !!!!
Thank you Charles Barkley for stating the facts.
Politicians, especially the liberal party uses race, nationality and cultures as ploys during campaigns. They kiss up, knock down beliefs and morals and back stab depending who they are using
LOOK AROUND YOU, MOST OF US HAVE DIVERSE FRIENDS OF DIVERSE SETS OF COLOR, HERITAGE, FAT & THIN, FUNNY OR FACTUAL
BUT WE ARE REALLY WOWED BY THE CHARACTER WITHIN OUR FRIENDS.
This is strictly a democrat maneuver! First, democrats fuel a racial problem that barely exists. Then, they throw gas on the fire to make everyone angry while getting the fraud news media to fan the flames. Charles is right, but unfortunately it’s only the democrat party that will pit races against each other.
