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.

Seriously, those of y'all that say Charles isn't racist because he's married to a white woman...y'all are full of BS...look at how he's treated her, cheating on her time and time again, whoever said he was an Uncle Tom is dead on! People like him and Tiger are so disgusting the white girls that mess around with them deserve the crap they're getting.

I think Charles was right on target about Billy Payne. If he didnot have something good to say about Tiger he should have kept his damn mouth close.

Ummm Steph from the "ATL" thanks for including me in your thoughts. It baffles me why my comment is laughable you unless you are one of this people. My statements must have really touched you in some deep way. That's what's really amusing.If you are black you should be deeply ashamed of yourself. Either way you are a Grade A idiot! You ignorant ahole! I love people like you!

Why is everyone made at charles? talking about racial terms. What is racial about saying a white man think's that he is a slave master? CHUCK spoke the truth. Fools want to complain about Tiger. Tiger is a not a God or Perfect. So there for he shouldn't be considered a role model. Stupid parents. He cheated on his wife. Big whoop. That's between him and his wife. Humans have sex. Are you people retarded? My God. I hate you idiot bloggers

Charles is exactly right. Why would this Payne, make a statement on the day of the event? His timing is was about four months past due. This is another classic example, of how White America makes yet another attempt to keep a brother down. If my comments hurt, think about it...

Reading through these comments is just absolutely halarious. I am about to choke from laughing out loud. First, Charles Barkley nor Tiger Woods represent the Black race OK?..Neither gives a rats butt about the black race. Neither EVER dates anyone Black. Neither consider themself Black. They are both Just as white on the inside of all of you making your little racist comment. Get it through your racsist skulls that THEY BOTH LOVE WHITE WOMEN.



Blacks could care less about either of these two Sell outs.



Uncle Tom
You fools getting upset about a term that is made up. There IS no such thing or person as Uncle Tom. He never existed. A made up term like the N word. the F. word. Uncle Tom was taken from Uncle Toms Cabin a book of literally Fictional characters. YES they do cover it in College. and All English Majors cover the subject so dont even try to challenge me.



Sell out



A person, or persons that will sell their own race, relative, to win favor with another race or group.



How DARE any of you have the nerve to think that Tiger or Charles represent the Black race..They Represent Blacks who Want to be white. So I dont know why you all are so upset about some made up term When both Sell outs LOVE white folks. Tiger and Charles lost their Black cards LONG ago. Ask either one who they perfer to get with.date .Dont ask Tiger..hes mistresses have already shown us what type of women he likes..not one black..and neither do Charles. So I dont know how the hell you gonna call Charles a racist when all he loves and dates is White women. Get the hella here with this crap!

Anyone who listens to Charles is about as much of an idiot as he is. Blacks are the most ignorant and racist group of people that exist in the world. They even are racist against there own people, the darker the black the more your ostrasized from the black community, jamaicans aren't even considered blacks within the black community. They feel that they are supposed to be handed everything because there great great great great grandparents were enslaved, 90% dont even know who there parents are now!!! Drive by any ghetto in any major city or section 8 apartment complex and you see people sitting on stoops, playing dice and generally waiting for there monthly checks to come in. Why is it that hispanics, asian and other european immigrants are surpassing black america in every aspect of life with the exception of complaining about what they feel is owed to them because there relatives were slaves. They should take care of themselves, take accountability for there actions; and realize that if you continue to complain instead of working hard and making a better life for your families your always be in the same situation. They make comments about whites and such, whites complain about having to pick up the slack for them and listen to all there whinning about what should be GIVEN to them..There is such a double standard in america, blacks can say anything and everything about whites and how much they suck, bring in idiots like sharpten and jesse jackson and complain..Whatever, keep holding yourselves back..And if it is so bad here and the whites are holding you back so much, when you get your monthly checks but a one way ticket to any other country - you"ll see what the rest of the world thinks about you and wish that you were still her collecting handouts..And about obama, i though he was going to help the minorities, he hasn't-maybe he's an uncle tom??
