Karl Malone feels that black people needs to stop looking for handouts…Is he right? what do you think?
“The Mailman” was able to make his presence felt by delivering some raw, gritty opinions about the comments Charles Barkley had made regarding towards the #BLACKLIVESMATTER movement. Recently, Karl Malone did a interview with the HuffPost‘s host Marc Lamont Hill and told him that he agrees with Barkley’s view on the racial indifference that’s been occurring in society today. The former Utah Jazz great went to say this:
I echo his sentiments exactly. We need to look in the mirror ourselves and stop waiting on someone to come march on our behalf. Take ownership ourselves, make our community better and stop looking for a handout. Do something about it yourself that you can control. Stop using the excuse about race. I am sick and tired that every time you turn around, that’s what we dangle … Our problem now is we do so much talking and beating things to death. Let’s take ownership in ourselves … stop waiting for someone to come in and march for us.
Malone is just one of the very few individuals who are agreeing with Barkley’s viewpoints in which they strongly believe in that African Americans playing the “race card” to have their message heard is just a weak defense mechanism for real results to come their way. Meanwhile, there are individuals such as Barkley’s co worker and TV analyst Kenny Smith who feels the opposite of what “Chuck” believes. In fact, this topic has been a heavy debate on their “Inside The NBA” telecast that comes on every Thursday on TNT. This ongoing debate has been the hottest thing trending since November of 2014. From the way it is looking, there’s no stopping if the results will finally come to realization in which equality on both ends of each diverse group. It will very interesting if another NBA legend will come out to express themselves about this situation.
