Charles Barkley Talking About Governor Again

I can't wait to vote for him.

Quote:
Well, It would be great for -- it would just be great that white America elected a black president. Because the truth of the matter is, unless he gets a certain percentage of the white vote, he is not going to be elected, so that would be cool that white people had enough confidence in him. But Campbell, unless we, we as black people stop killing each other, not getting our education, we have to do better. Racism does exist. It is always going to exist, but until we as a people stop killing each other and stop not getting our education we are never going to be successful. I mean, because realistically, whoever the president is doesn't have a huge effect on anybody's life, to be honest with you.
Quote:
I see him as a great role model 'cause we got to get more black kids educated. And you know we have this terrible thing going on in the black community about if a black kid does well in school we make fun of him. We've got to get more black kids getting their education, carrying themselves with great dignity, and self esteem. I've always looked at this as bigger picture. I mean, because if he wins, it ain't like -- really, I think he's just a great role model for young black kids. I don't mean that in a negative as far as, like, who the president is is really not going to have a huge effect on people's everyday life.
Is it bad I laughed when I read 'terrible' and he didn't even actually say it out loud?

Barkley: Well, because they are so judgmental. And you know what is really interesting about that? I was actually defending John McCain when I said that, because they were saying when he first got nominated that he is not part of the evangelicals. You got to respect Sen. McCain. What I meant by that and I still stick by it -- my idea of religion is we are supposed to encourage people to love other people. I am a big pro-choice guy. I am a big gay marriage guy and they are so divisive and that is not my idea of religion. My idea of religion is we are supposed to bring people together. We are not supposed to judge other people.

Brown: But aren't you judging them?

Barkley: They judge me. First of all the notion that you would vote for a president because he is against abortion or against gay marriage is absurd. I think politicians have three jobs.
BAM! Love this guy. I agree with him 100%, especially on that last few lines.

Brown: So are you going to run for governor?

Barkley: I plan on it in 2014.

Brown: You are serious.

Barkley: I am, I can't screw up Alabama.

Brown: There is no place to go but up in your view?

Barkley: We are number 48 in everything and Arkansas and Mississippi aren't going anywhere.

Brown: And the top priority for you would be education?

Re: Charles Barkley Talking About Governor Again

charles barkley is going to be your governor haha.

i think he really hit the nail on the head when he said that smart people get made fun of in school.

you know there is something *** backwards in your culture when scientists are considered losers and football players and wrestlers are considered the cool jobs.
