On today's Pat and Stu, the guys looked at some surprising audio from Charles Barkley, where the former NBA player and broadcaster went off on the black community's "dirty, little secret."
"As I tell my white friends, we as black people, we’re never going to be successful, not because of you white people, but because of other black people. When you’re black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other black people. It’s a—It’s a dirty, dark secret; I’m glad it’s coming out. It comes out every few years," Barkley said.
"When young black kids, you know, when they do well in school, the loser kids tell them, ‘Oh, you’re acting white.’ The kids who speak intelligently."
"One of the reasons we’re never going to be successful as a whole, because of other black people. And for some reason we are brainwashed to think, if you’re not a thug or an idiot, you’re not black enough. If you go to school, make good grades, speak intelligent, and don’t break the law, you’re not a good black person. And it’s a dirty, dark secret."
"There are a lot of black people who are unintelligent, who don't have success," he said. "It's best to knock a successful black person down 'cause they're intelligent, they speak well, they do well in school, and they're successful. It's crabs in a barrel."
"Because our agreement would indicate our deep seated racism," Stu said sarcastically, "we want everyone to know we don't agree with him."
