This is what happens after basketballers receiver a million dollars anyway. So it’s not like it matters.
Since I’m White, the very first thing I think about when I hear the words “Charles Barkley” isn’t NBA records or even basketball in general.
Because I obviously never watched a single game of basketball in my entire life.
What I’m reminded of is instead the only worthwhile thing Charles Barkley has ever done, which is his epic 2008 post-apocalyptic cyberpunk b-ball indie RPG “Barkley, Shut Up and Jam Gaiden Vol. 1.”
Only PC master race millennials will get this reference, and be awash in nostalgia right about now.
But this story isn’t about PC game nostalgia. It’s about how this b-baller is spending his money (which he presumably made off the sales of Barkley, Shut up and Jam Gaiden).
Yes, he’s spending it on “charity.”
Nigga, we be gibs dat munny fo da keeds.
But is it really charity if the people benefiting from it are all of the same race as the one donating?
White people are told that that they’re only allowed to donate to charities that help brown people – and ideally, brown people living in shithole countries.
Yet this guy is allowed to donate to a “historically Black college”?
And Jews are allowed to donate to “Jewish hospitals”?
What a terrible double standard. And this isn’t even mentioning that this guy made his entire fortune off of White people – after all, Blacks don’t own or use computers, and I’m sure none of them are even aware of Charles Barkley’s 2008 indie RPG release.
It’s their loss tbh.
He might have made some money from his NBA side-gig as well, but I doubt it’s much.
Retired NBA superstar Charles Barkley is donating another $1 million to a historically black college.
Founded in 1898, Miles College is a historically black college and university (HBCU) in Fairfield, Alabama. The $1 million from Barkley is the single largest donation in the school’s 122 years, according to the university.
Miles College is the fourth HBCU that Barkley has donated $1 million to in recent years. In 2016, Barkley donated $1 million to both Alabama A&M in Huntsville and Clark Atlanta University. In 2017, he donated $1 million to Morehouse College in Atlanta.
So Miles College is a “historically Black college.”
Every picture I find shows that everyone at that college is still Black to this day.
It’s almost like segregation is still in effect, except only for Blacks.
After all, even if I wanted to send millions of dollars to “historically White colleges,” those are now full of brown people and Jews.
Students at “historically White” Harvard University.
In fact, there’s basically no such thing as a White charity these days. Pretty much any institution you donate to will ensure that most of that money will benefit brown people. Or, like, koalas and whales or whatever.
“It’s great that Mr. Barkley thinks enough of Miles College to donate a million dollars,” said interim president Bobbie Knight. “This gift lays the foundation to launch our $100 million dollar comprehensive campaign.”
Barkley told CNN that Knight is a friend, and that he hopes the school will use his donation for academic purposes.
I’m sure they will, Charles. I’m sure they will.
They’ll probably buy, huh, textbooks and sheeiit. A million dollars’ worth of ’em.
“I’ve gotten to know Bobbie Knight over the last year and it was something I really wanted to do,” said Barkley. “To have a female president is a big deal. I want to help Bobbie be as successful as she can be.”
Barkley recently was a guest on “Conan Needs a Friend,” the podcast hosted by late-night TV host Conan O’Brien. Barkley said that his biggest regret in life was that he “didn’t take education more serious” when he was younger.
“This is my fourth donation to HBCUs (Morehouse College, Clark Atlanta University, Alabama A&M University),” Barkley told CNN. “I just think what it’s costing these kids to go to college today is a travesty in this country, and I know historically black colleges are struggling. I wanted to do something to help them and I’m going to continue to help them.”
Yeah he’s been donating all that money to a bunch of exclusively Black colleges and no one is whining and accusing him of being racist.
It’s perfectly normal to want to use you own resources to benefit people of your own race – in this case, by allowing the college administrators to buy new gold-plated rims for their Cadillacs. However, that normal and healthy drive to help those of your own race is only allowed for… everyone who isn’t White.
If you have a few million dollars burning a hole in your pocket, you only option is to give it all to Greta and hope she saves a few more koalas.
Or at least, maybe she’ll be able to afford enough food to grow to adulthood.
