Charles Barkley Wants to Put Some “Blackness” in Tiger Woods

by Robert Littal | Posted on Friday, September 21st, 2012

Barkley’s quote is dumb on several levels, but before I tell you why, here is what he had to say courtesy of the Big Lead.

I would like for him to just blast Greg Norman … That situation gave everybody a chance to dump on you, and [Tiger] still tried to take the high road. I’m not a high road guy. I want him to come out and really blast Greg Norman. I wish he would go ballistic on Greg … I wish I could put some of my blackness in him … like toughness … [I've been] arrested eight times for fighting … just because I’m Charles Barkley, you can’t disrespect me … you just can’t say anything to me anytime you want to …

The fact that Barkley equates blackness to being arrested 8 times and not taking the high road is just so stupid. Like most Barkley’s quotes I understand what he is saying, he just didn’t use the right words to get his point across.

Tiger, since his Ex-Wife attacked him with a 9 Iron for sleeping with porn stars has taken a lot of grief. Most of it hasn’t been justified, all he did was cheat on his wife, 10 million guys are doing that right now.

This has nothing to do though with Woods lack of blackness, moreso him trying to keep his public image under control. Barkley can get arrested 8 times, get caught drunk driving with a hooker he was trying to get oral sex from and say outlandish things. No one cares, but Tiger Woods is on a higher level than Barkley ever was, so he simply can’t always say how he really feels.

Ironically Barkley and Tiger have one thing they share. They like white women, Barkley has been married to one for years and we know Tiger likes the Vanilla. So, that is one “black” man thing they have in common.

    Chuck is a lot smarter than some people give him credit for espcecially in his post NBA playing days. But when he says stuff like this, he reverts back to the the early 90s Barkley who once threw someone threw a window and spat on a heckling fan.

    I would hope he was just joking when he said Tiger needs more blackness but it sounds like he was somewhat serious. *smdh*
