These iconic images have plagued the African American community in the same manner as the Sambo, Coon, Jim Crow, and minstrel acts did during the early years of American life. Where does this behavior originate? Why does it still exist? Why is it still popular in certain areas of the community? Who suffers the most from these demeaning images.
these and other questions will be explored by the community panel of the Black Reality Think Tank radio program on Tuesday evening 1/7/20 at 8 pm eastern time.

I think we need to stop watching the media outlets that call on blacks like Barkley, that we know are “Sambos”, “sell outs” and “house Negros.” Black people are “crooks” are you kidding me? If a black person and a white person each commit a crime, the black person is more likely to be arrested. This is due to the fact that black people are more heavily policed than whites.
Black people, more often than white people, live in dense urban areas, these are more heavily policed than suburban or rural areas. This could help explain why, for example, black people and white people smoke marijuana at similar rates, yet black people are 3.7 times as likely to be arrested for marijuana possession. This discrepancy is also be driven by overt racism, more frequent illegal searches of black people (stop and frisk), and willingness to let whites off with a warning.
A black person like a Charles Barkley is part of our problem, not a solution. Just stick to commentating on basketball (of which you know very little) and leave important issues to somebody more intelligent, you IDIOT!
