The controversy surrounding Miami Dolphin Richie Incognito‘s alleged racist remarks and bullying to teammate Jonathan Martin is still going strong. Is it apart of the sports culture, or is it stepping over the line? Roland Martin spoke with Charles Barkley to get his thoughts on whether racist talk should be allowed in the locker room.
“The locker room is very fun spirited and it’s sexist, it’s racist, at times,” said Barkley. “It’s all over the place, and I’ve got no problem with that. You know, I got white guys and I’m racist towards them in a fun way and they’re racist toward me in a fun way.”
