Los Angeles – TNT basketball analyst and NBA Hall of Famer, Charles Barkley confirmed that he has resigned from his analyst job to become the Publicist for Donald Sterling. “I don’t think there is anything wrong with racism,” said Barkley, adding that this country was built on racism and how can people be mad about not wanting to associate with black people. “I’m black and for five years I’ve been sitting next to Ernie Johnson and Kenny Smith. Johnson I don’t mind because he’s a white guy, but having to sit next to Kenny has been a struggle. Every broadcast he throws his blackness in my face, the way he pimp walks to the jumbo screen, the loud Steve Harvey suits he wears with the Stacey Adam shoes, and don’t get me started on the way he talks, it’s sickening.” Barkley’s decision to become Mr. Sterling’s publicist comes after the L.A. Clippers owner tweeted that in the last 24 hours, he’s read all three books that Charles wrote; Outrageous!, I May Be Wrong but I Doubt It and Who’s Afraid of a Large Black Man and that even though Charles is black he feels that they share the same philosophies in life.
