I am sending this communication on behalf of my 82 year-old Mom. She has asked me to remind Charles Barkley of the man he was in his youth and the very unfortunate actions he displayed like spitting on people. Her point is that she is extremely troubled by his description of the people in Ferguson as scumbags.
She also is curious as to why Charles is always sought out for his opinion on non-sports related issues. Why don't reporters seek out Kenny or Steve Smith or Isaiah Thomas, men who appear to be intelligent and very thoughtful in their opinions. Can Charles just stick to sports? Maybe, he is well versed on that subject.
