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.

Charles Barkley is the biggest racist. How comes no one tells him he's politically incorrect and ban him from TV. I'm tired of him yapping black this or white this. What happened to equality. Barkley should quit harboring resentment and be happy some people care what he has to say, that overweight, hypecritical racist.

Darlene you are a idot to say that black people are more racist than whites if you look back in history who was on the other end
racsim blacks and to this very day racsim is still alive and well.Just because America has a Black President dose not mean it is'nt around.Also look at some of Thunder Thighs post,I guess you would say a Black person wrote them,and as far as Billy Payne comments he should had made them before the tournement I guess he was to affraid that if he had Tiger might not have played.And we all know that golf without Tiger not wworth watching.

Has it occurred to the RETARDED Mr. Barkley that an "Uncle Tom" has come to mean a black person acting like a white person to curry favor, not a white person taking advantage of a black person? I wonder what a black person acting like a black person is called?

I find it disturbing that Billy still thinks he is above judgement. He, of all people, has his own family skeletons. His daughter left her husband for her husbands sister’s husband. Only in Georgia, right? Anyway, to clarify, her children’s uncle then became their father. This left her husband and his sister divorced because they were betrayed by their spouses at family functions, which I am sure Billy attended. Maybe he should focus on the well being of his grandchildren and correcting the behavior of his daughter before worrying about Tiger.

Charles always has to put his foot in his mouth, He should have just kept it simple and said: "So I guess Tigers shit is the only one who smells, Because by his actions Payne insinuated that EVERY other Golfer who has walked the greens before and is on the Greens now is MORALLY PERFECT!

Charles is right. You should be your child's role model not Tiger. He plays golf. He can sex who he wants. His wife has to deal with it not us. We watch his golf playing, why even concern ourselves with his personal life. We need to let celebrities be who they are and admire their skill not what they do outside of work. If our lives were in the open it would be much worse than Tiger.

Billy Payne is not being an uncle tom. Tiger Woods is the f*ck up of the century, Golf doesn't need it & Billy Payne said so. This is the sh*t we expect of the NBA the MMA or the NFL, not Golf. Barkley is the ultimate racist. Pulling that out when all logic fails.

Ha!!!Ha!!!    

Charles Barkley is an idiot.That goes without saying.
But, I think the president of the Masters needs to be thankful Tiger has returned because this tournament wouldn't get half of the attention if he had not.

First off Charles Barkley and Tiger Woods are the biggest Uncle Toms okay. Both wouldn't touch a black woman if you paid him. The good white folks please disregard what I'm about to say next. The ignorant and/or racist white people on this thread can seriously GO TO HELL WHERE YOUR FLITHY ANCESTORS ARE. EVERYONE KNOWS THESE TYPE OF WHITE FOLKS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN AND ARE THE MOST EVIL BEINGS ON THE PLANET. YOU CAN'T HELP BUT BE DERANGED ITS IN YOUR DNA MAKEUP. YOUR ANCESTORS AVE RAPED,KILLED AND SLAUGHTER MINORITIES YOU PIECES OF S**T. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY BLACK PEOPLE "CRY" RACISM, ASK YOUR EVIL ASS MOMMY AND DADDY THAT RAISED YOUR RETARDED RACIST ASSES. BLAME YOUR FU**KED UP FAMILIES YOU DIRTY LOWLIFES!
