Charles Barkley: Sports, Media Are Turning Social Justice Issues into a ‘Circus’

Barkley said, “I think what’s happening now is we have turned it into a circus. We are going to spend time instead of talking about racial equality, racial justice and economic justice. We spend all our time worried about who is kneeling and what’s being said on buses, what is being said on jerseys. I think we’re missing the point. We need police reform. We need prison reform.”
Host Kelly Evans asked, “One of the other things that’s happening with all the seasons is all these social justice messages. The back and forth over the anthem, over the flag, over standing or kneeling, the words that are going to be on back of jerseys, is there too much politics in sports?”
