From Inquisitr:

As Black Lives Matter supporters continue to rally against the police-perpetrated deaths of Alton Sterling and Philandro Castile, former basketball star Charles Barkley has surprisingly chosen to take an opposing stance against them. While being interviewed on The Dan Le Batard Show on Tuesday, the 53-year-old TNT Sports commentator expressed that most instances of racial profiling are due to the racial stereotypes that are upheld by the African-American community.

“There’s a lot of people at fault [for these deaths],” Barkley stated to the ESPN host, also making mention of the five Dallas police officers who were killed during a Black Lives Matter protest last Wednesday. “The cops have made some mistakes, [and] black people have made some mistakes. That doesn’t give us the right to riot and shoot cops; we need the cops, especially in the black community. We, as black people, have got to do better.”
