Charles Barkley and Being Black

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

It is very rare that I  follow sports, much less write about sports figures.  But every once in a while, something pops up that I can’t help but scribble down a few thoughts.   And leave it to former NBA star Charles Barkley to make that possible.
