I’m sure you all heard about the “Dirty, Dark Secret” that leaked out last week without official sanction:
Wait, no; I’m just messing with you. I’m talking about this “dirty, dark secret” revealed last week by Sir Charles Barkley:
As I tell my white friends, we as black people, we’re never going to be successful, not because of you white people, but because of other black people. When you’re black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other black people. It’s a—It’s a dirty, dark secret; I’m glad it’s coming out. It comes out every few years.
“Not because of you white people, but because of other black people” ??? Can he say that?
…One of the reasons we’re never going to be successful as a whole, because of other black people. And for some reason we are brainwashed to think, if you’re not a thug or an idiot, you’re not black enough. If you go to school, make good grades, speak intelligent, and don’t break the law, you’re not a good black person. And it’s a dirty, dark secret…
…I said, you know, when young black kids, you know, when they do well in school, the loser kids tell them, ‘Oh, you’re acting white.’ The kids who speak intelligently—
They tell them, ‘You’re acting white.’ So it’s a dirty, dark secret in the black community.
I’m not going to say that’s a dog whistle, because Charles Barkley is certified black enough to criticize other black people (h/t: Bo Snerdly), butt if I said that…well, you know the drill:
Back to Charles:
It’s crabs in a barrel…—we’re the only race that tell people if you don’t have street cred, with like, that means you been arrested— Like, like that’s a compliment. We’re the only ethnic group who say, ‘Hey, if you go to jail, it gives you street cred.’ It’s just typical BS that goes on when you’re black, man. But don’t waste a lot of time on it please…
Anyone care to guess how many black kids will be earning their street creds later this week when the St. Louis Grand Jury comes in with a decision in the Michael Brown shooting? While you’re at it, guess how many nationally prominent
outside agitators civil rights leaders community organizers will be on hand to help them earn those creds.
Remember when the presumption of innocence applied to the presumed perpetrator, as well as the victim?
Yeah, well, that was BO – Before Obama; before the bus was filled with Bozos.
Hey, I’ve got an idea! Let’s see what Jesse “Never let a victim go to waste” Jackson thinks we should do about Ebola!
“We’re never going to be successful, not because of you white people, but because of other black people.” (Charles Barkley)
