Charles Barkley defends Adrian Peterson days after football star is indicted on charges of child abuse
Former NBA star Charles Barkley has come to the defense of Adrian Peterson just days after the disgraced football player was indicted on charges of child abuse, claiming every black parent in the South whips their child.
Appearing on NFL Today this Sunday, Barkley said, 'Whipping – we do that all the time. Every black parent in the South is going to be in jail under those circumstances.'
He then stated that he believes there is a fine line between spanking and child abuse.
