Charles Barkley doubles down on Ferguson comments

Charles Barkley on Tuesday doubled down on his recent controversial comments about events in Ferguson, Missouri, as he maintained the black community needs to shoulder more blame for tragedies like the one that befell 18-year-old Michael Brown.

'We as black people, we got a lot of crooks,' the NBA legend told CNN in an interview he gave after taking heat for similar comments he made on a Philadelphia sports radio show last week.

The 51-year-old, who also famously supported the acquittal of George Zimmerman, publicly agreed with the grand jury decision not to indict Darren Wilson and doesn't fault police who tend to single out black people while investigating crimes.

'There's a reason they racially profile us at times,' he told CNN. 'Sometimes it's wrong, sometimes its right.'

Obama should listen to C. B. instead of Sharpton!
