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.

why is it always about white folks wanting athletes to be role models to their children. Why don't you parents try being role models. Always ready to blame someone else. Hell the master's does not allow women. What does that tell you morons.

That bigot is reason the "N" word is used so liberally.
Had a white person made such comments the ACLU, Al Sharpton, J Jackson would be calling for their head on a platter. I'm sick and tired of reverse discrimination. What a total he has once again proven to be, but our networks will still air his biased, racist opinions. This country is going to hell n a hand basket and people like Chuck are a big reason why.

Is Charles Barkley a Bigot or does he have 'issues' ?    

Is billionaire Charles Barkley Not only a angry political activist (insults people who are Not democrats) but a Bigot ? Charles Barkley several years ago used to slander different groups (brown, white,some black even,etc.) . He once insulted a hispanic for being too short in Atlanta and made statements like these " “That’s what I hate about F-cking White people”. Does Charles Barkley have 'Issues' or is he just a Bigot ?

Charles Barkley married a white woman, and they have a child together, how does that make him a racist. The old man should have kept his mouth shut! Who the hell uses Tiger as a role model for their children and grandchildren, HE PLAYS GOLF, get over it.

funny - Billy Payne had a multi year affair with a woman during his tenure at the olympics that hurt alot of people. How funny that he is throwing stones at tiger so publically when he did the same thing!

C. Barkley and others led Tiger down a dark path. This is just Barkley trying to deflect and project the guilt he shares for Tiger's walk of shame.
