Barkley Rips Masters Head -- He's an 'Uncle Tom'

4/9/2010 4:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charles Barkley has resorted to racial insults in his attack on the guy who runs the Masters -- comparing Billy Payne to a slave-driving plantation owner after Payne ripped Tiger Woods over the scandal.



Barkley -- who used to be pretty tight with Woods -- went on Fox Sports Radio yesterday and said, "You got this punk ass Billy Payne who goes on TV ... for him to get on there and act like he's all Uncle Tom, he's the master on the plantation, that piss me off."

Barkley added, "I wish somebody would just walk up to him and punch him in his face."

Earlier this week, Payne mentioned Tiger in his news conference saying, "Our hero did not live up to the expectations of the role model we saw for our children."

Historical Fun Fact!
-- White people generally aren't called "Uncle Tom" ... because "Uncle Tom" was black.

The problem with Charles Barkley is that he never got his blowjob.He is jerking off waiting for that enjoyable blowjob that he went out of his way to get and never got.Ha,ha,ha...The black dude expected the blonde (black women are not very good for anything,I guess,I live in Miami Beach and all these black sport figures with lots of money all they want is white,blonde women) to go down on him and it was the police that instead of giving him a blowjob ended up screwing him,royally.HA,HA,HA....What a bum.

Rebecca you are so right.The problem is that USA black people all have an inferiority complex.They also know that Obama is not black as black is in the USA.His father a real african had 6 years only with him.He was raised by WHITE grandparents,went to WHITE schools,WHITE universities and always was around WHITE people.He thinks WHITE not USA black.That knowledge is common in the USA black community and that hurts them deep.They rely on Michelle to make Barack to see the USA black way but with no great good results.That is a great burden,Even Tiger Woods considers himself southern asian and not black.Sorry USA black people.

Charles should know that the proper name for the guy who's keepin' the brothers down at the golf course would be "The Man."

FACT IS BILL PAYNE IS RACIST.

TILL A FEW YEARS AGO, THEY DID NOT ADMIT BLACKS, OTHER MINORITIES, AND JEWS.

Tiger can play at the Masters, but he can never be a member.

Go figure....pulling the race card as usual, for absolutely no justifiable reason. Judging from the comments, I'm glad to see people are finally waking up to it.

Actually, I heard it was Billy Payne who called Charles Barkley 'Uncle Tom'.

Hmm. I wonder what would have happened if that was the case?

Million dollar question to Billy Payne.

why did you allow Tiger to play in this Tournament?

There were negotiations early on between Tiger's camp and Augusta National. If Billy Payne is so disappointed, why not pass on Tiger's return to The Masters. Tell Tiger that you are disgusted by his egregious behavior and that he can look for another place to return. It's that simple.



Did Billy Payne have these same feelings about his daughter's infidelities Or about his married son getting a stripper pregnant.

Charles Barkley has alot of nerve! Screaming racism in this case is a complete insult to everyone with two brain cells. When you don't have any defense for your crappy behavior just blame someone else and cry racism. Charles Barkley just lost another fan.
What an Ass%^*)

Barkley.....another example of an celebrity/athlete thinking they are smarter than they are just because they have money and access to a microphone! With all of the bad he has done in his past, he should just shut up and stay in the shadows! Have another drink Barkley and STFU!
