On Monday, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant took to social media to weigh-in on black culture, encouraging the African American community to take "individual accountability" instead of dwelling on the past and blaming white people. The football star also questioned why black culture tends to condemn "sophisticated" black folks as "not being 'black enough.'"
"First and foremost, I would like to say I do a great job of minding my own business, but it’s pressing on my heart to share my thoughts about white Americans and black Americans (racism)," he began.
Bryant then invoked NBA legend Charles Barkley, agreeing with his past controversial remarks concerning black culture:
I saw a person quote Charles Barkley when he said, “We as black people, we’re never going to be successful not because of you white people, but because of other black people.”
I hate to admit it, but I understand that quote.
