Charles Barkley fires back at ‘white privilege’ anger after Steve Nash hire
“I was very disappointed in some of the guys on television today (Stephen A. Smith) talking about white privilege. Very disappointed,” Barkley said. “They’re like, ‘Well, this doesn’t happen to Black guys.’ And I’m like, ‘It happened to Doc Rivers. It happened to Jason Kidd. It happened to Derek Fisher.’
“When you have a responsibility, especially when you have to talk about something as serious as race, you can’t be full of crap,” Barkley said. “You’ve got to be honest and fair.
“Steve Nash is a great player and a good dude. But I was so disappointed in some of these guys. I was like, ‘Dude, Black guys have done this same thing before.’
