Basketball superstar Sir Charles Barley is calling out the Black community for its failures.  The NBA star is speaking out in wake of the racial divide that has suddenly gripped this country following the shooting deaths of two black citizens by police and the murder of five Dallas cops who were gunned down in a sniper attack by Micah Johnson last week.  The former Phoenix Suns power

forward told “The Dan Le Batard Show” Tuesday, that “we have to sit back and be honest with each other. The cops have made some mistakes, that don’t give us the right to riot and shoot cops.”  Barley says the “reason why there’s racial stereotypes’ is because ‘some black people are crooks.”  Barkley went on to say “We need the cops, especially in the black community. We as black people, we’ve got to do better.  We never get mad when black people kill each other, which that has always bothered me…I’ve always said if we as black people want more respect, we have to give each other respect.  You can’t demand respect from white people and the cops if you don’t respect each other.  We’ve got to do better as black people.  Barley also lays blame on the media.  He adds the media is “always playing Monday morning quarterback” when a shooting occurs without all the facts.
