Former NBA star Charles Barkley ripped the nation's political class on Saturday, saying politicians are dividing Americans along racial lines for personal gain.
"Man, I think most white people and Black people are great people," Barkley said Saturday night during the CBS's broadcast of the NCAA men's college basketball tournament.
"I really believe that in my heart, but I think our system is set up where our politicians, whether they're Republicans or Democrats, are designed to make us not like each other so they can keep their grasp of money and power. They divide and conquer," he said.

Unfortunate these comments don't gain any significant traction. I guess our environment is too heavily politicized to actually even see this. Which is absolutely true.
