DAILYKENN.com --Charles Barkley says Democrats take black Americans for granted, according to lifezette.com.
Former NBA star Charles Barkley blasted the Democratic Party after Tuesday night’s debates, saying they have not done much to help most black Americans.
The former Phoenix Suns star sat in the audience during the presidential debate on Tuesday, but was not impressed with what he saw.
Barkley told the media that “every black person I know has always voted Democratic” — but most are “still poor” despite those votes.
Barkley also slammed Democrats for ignoring people of color, saying, as Yahoo News reported, “It’s an economic thing, and that’s what both parties have been neglecting, especially the Democratic Party.”
“Every black person I know has always voted Democratic, and with the exception of a few guys who can play sports, all those people are still poor,” Barkley continued.
