Charles Barkley: When People Talk Race, They Assume 'It's Only White People Who Are Racist'
NBA Legend Charles Barkley sat down with CNN's Erin Burnett tonight for a wide-ranging conversation on the George Zimmerman trial and President Obama's remarks today about Trayvon Martin. Barkley maintained that he agrees with the verdict, and echoed sentiments made Friday afternoon by President Obama talking about his own experiences as a black man. Barkley told Burnett that too often when the country has a conversation about race, there's a general and inaccurate assumption that white people are the only racist ones.
