NBA Hall of Famer and TNT analyst Charles Barkley, says that Tuesday’s Democrat victory in Alabama proves that if Democrats started doing more for Black Americans, they could win more elections.After Democrat Doug Jones won a shocking victory in deep red Alabama, Barkley, an Alabama native, said how thrilled he was with the victory.
“I’m so proud of my state. I love my state. We got some amazing people here. Yeah, we got a bunch of rednecks and a bunch of ignorant people, but we got some amazing people here and they rose up today,” Barkley said on CNN according to The Hill.

Make no mistake I like Charles Barkley even though I never met him.
On TV over the years, he always came across as an honest fellow.
Unfortunately, here I think he’s made a bad mistake. The D’s, like the R’s, are only interested in — remember the three “laws” of political motivation — (1) rewarding your friends; (2) punishing your enemies; and (3) feathering your own nest.
Ever election cycle, the D’s count on the “black vote” (their terminology; not mine). Just as the R’s count on their “base” to show up. Sprinkle in a few Greens and Libertarians to subtract from the appropriate totals and that the “election calculus”.
Best thing that could happen is if the Gooferment left us all alone. Second best, if the Gooferment can’t stop meddling, would be repeal the minimum wage laws. They hurt everyone!
