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.

Now if a white guy said this about a black man the whole world would be in uproar. How come it's ok for black people to make such racist comments?? Blacks are more racist then any ethnicity in this world!!!

I liked Barkley as a basketball player, but he's a dumb racist that's always saying outrageous things to get attention. He needs to go away.

Barkley is a dumba$$. Every time he opens his mouth he proves he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Ugh    

so let me get this right ... it's ok for Barkley to use bigot terms, and call someone a racially motivated name because why exactly, besides the part that he's lacking in education and moral character and that he's charles used to be someone barkley.

if the shoe had been reversed and Payne had called barkley any racial term, his resignation would have been called for by everyone from jesse jackson to al sharpton.

this is equal to the N word - oh but no i know it's not, because there's nothing worse than that.

so since barkley has nothing to resign from, i guess he just needs to reaffirm to everyone he's a racist pig. goal accomplished.

as a person of color, barkley continues to be a gross violation of our race.

I'm black and I don't cry over anything, so please don't make such blanket statements.

THE HEAD OF THE masters was a complete idiot. I wanted to get up there and kick the sh t out of him and I'm a white girl from the South. Who does he think he is. He definitely has a stick up his ass.

No.6. What the hell are you talking about. No one complains more often and louder than white people. have you not been looking at the news. "they're taking our jobs"...."health care is going to ruin us"......"he's bringing socialism to america".......it just goes on and on and on ad nauseum with white people. You couldn't satisfy them if God appeared and give them everything they desire. They'd complain about that......"you've given me so much i don know what to do." Think I'm lying. Just watch the evening news. Pick a station. NBC, CBS, FOX, CNN, MSNBC.....IT DOSEN'T MATTER. TONIGHT....YOU WILL SEE A GROUP OF WHITE PEOPLE COMPLAINING ABOUT SOMETHING. WHY......BECAUSE IT'S ALWAYS ABOUT YOU. YOU ALL THINK YOU ARE THE ONLY PEOPLE LIVING ON THIS PLANET. YEAH....YOU GIVE TO CHARITIES AND HELP COUNTRIES IN NEED AND THEN YOU CAN'T WAIT TO GET ON TV AND BRAG ABOUT IT. I DON'T HATE WHITE PEOPLE BUT I HAVE TO TELL YOU.....YOU ALL ARE HELL TO LIVE ON THIS EARTH WITH.

Barkley is an ignorant DOUCHEBAG! He should apologize for playing the race card & threatening someone just because he stated a fact. Tiger Woods did NOT LIVE UP to his "image" as being a role model. There was nothing out of line said about Tiger. A simple fact was stated.

Even TIGER WOODS ACCEPTED RESPONSIBLITY! DEAL WITH IT BARKLEY & GET A DICTIONARY! Just because you are black does NOT mean you never have to hear a negative comment about one of your "brothers" buddy.... what comes around goes around... You can take your slave owned ass back to school...

Tiger Woods apologized & is putting his life back together. All I wanted was for him to be remorseful and he is. He's apologized & the family is putting their lives back together & he is GETTING BACK TO GOLF! woohoo.......

@ # 6 STACY......the question is not why are black people always crying about something. It's more of the question: why is it that WHITE AMerica is always standing around waiting for it? White America has and always will be intrigued by Black AMerica.

Ugh    

number 16 ... how are those anger management / i am a bigot classes going or did you miss too many of them ...

why is it that people pull the race card if someone doesn't like obama?

if you like socialism and sitting on your ass, then you'll like obama. if you think people should work for everything they have, and earn their way, then you are part of society.

Working hard is very hard. But whining about the blame always being the white man's is way beyond ignorant, old and identifies you as what you are always going to be.

Now get to your anger class, you've missed too many.

I think Charles takes it very personally because he has has multiple scandals in the media and for him to stick up for Tiger somehow lessens the horrible mistakes he made in his past.

As for the guy from the Masters of course he said something, how could he not? It would have been scrutinized a hundred times worse if he ignored the elephant in the room.
