Former NBA star Charles Barkley knocked down Democrats for not doing enough for black voters and criticized CNN's debate format.
The former Phoenix Suns power forward attended the Democratic presidential candidate debate at the Fox Theater in Detroit Michigan last night and said: & # 39; every black person I know has always voted democratically & # 39; but they are all & # 39; still poor & # 39 ;.
When after the second round on television he spoke primarily on television, he said & # 39; both parties suck & # 39; when asked which candidates he supported.
Barkley said that politicians from both parties took & # 39; black voices for granted & # 39; and did not do enough for poor people.
The Space Jam movie star added that he hoped he wouldn't be fired because he criticized CNN & # 39; s coverage of Democratic presidential debates, while his boss was just a few yards away.

Jokingly, he hoped he would still be employed as a basketball analyst for TNT, CNN & # 39; s sister channel, the 1991 All-Star MVP recorded in the coverage and debate format of having 10 candidates at a time.
Barkely told Yahoo: & # 39; We can do much better [from the debates], especially CNN. We could do much better, such as an individual night where we have a lot of time. & # 39;
Jeff Zucker, the head of the sports coverage of TNT and CNN, was just a few meters away at the time of the comments.
Barkley added, "He is not going to fire me." At least I hope so. & # 39;
He has criticized Democrats in the past for taking the voices of minorities for granted without helping their communities.
The NBA legend told Yahoo News last night: & # 39; I think all politicians take black people for granted. They talk to black people every four years and that is it and then do nothing about it. Both parties absorb that aspect. & # 39;

Barkley added that the situation has not improved since he first spoke in 2017.
He added: & # 39; It is an economic matter and that is what both parties have neglected, especially the Democratic Party.
& # 39; Every black person I know has always voted democratically and with the exception of a few boys who can exercise, all those people are still poor. & # 39;
Barkley also called President Trump & # 39; s recent incitement to minority convention women called & # 39; the team & # 39; when he tweeted that they should & # 39; go back … to the completely broken and crime-affected places where they came from & # 39 ;.
But the basketball star added that he was careful to call Donald Trump a racist.

He said: & # 39; I am suspicious of people & # 39; racist & # 39; He says some things that can be understood as & # 39; racist & # 39 ;. Some of the things he said are very wrong and blatant. & # 39;
Barkley previously campaigned to support the 2017 Senate Bid of Doug Jones in Alabama, where he said Democrats should get rid of their ass and make life better for black people and people who are poor.
Earlier this month, attorney Donald Watkins was convicted of lifting $ 6 million from Barkley as part of a $ 14 million investment fund.
Watkins also used the name of former Foreign Minister Condoleezza Rice to support the plan and was sentenced to five years in prison.
