• NBA Legend Karl Malone: Black People Need To ‘Stop Looking For A Handout’

    NBA Hall of Famer Karl Malone recently sat down with Huffington Post, of all places, and told the interviewer that black people need to take control of their destiny and “stop looking for a handout”.

    More of this, please:

    NBA legend Charles Barkley raised some eyebrows when he told CNN in December that the onus of the #BlackLivesMatter movement needed not be on how racial inequality can be fixed in this country, but on how black people can better improve themselves. In a HuffPost Live interview Wednesday, fellow NBA legend Karl Malone took Barkley’s side.

    “I echo his sentiments exactly,” Malone told host Marc Lamont Hill. “We need to look in the mirror ourselves and stop waiting on someone to come march on our behalf. Take ownership ourself, make our community better and stop looking for a handout. Do something about it yourself that you can control.”

    Watch Malone’s candid remarks above. Al Sharpton won’t like them.
