Michael Jordan's blackness should have prevented him from playing beer bong at a hotel in Florida earlier this month ... so says Charles Barkley.

First off, Barkley rules -- this guy is awesome.

Sir Charles was leaving La Vecchia Cucina in Santa Monica last night -- where he spent his Monday evening watching basketball -- when we brought up MJ's beer pong match at the Ritz in Florida. Check out the exchange:

Charles: "Black people don't play beer pong."
Pap: "Jordan did!"
Charles: "That don't make it right!"

Charles goes on to explain why black people don't play beer pong ... it's hilarious.

There's more -- we also asked Barkley about Blake Griffin ... and while Sir Charles admits he's usually pretty critical of the guy, it's only because he thinks BG can be a better player than he was.

But when we asked if he would've dominated Blake Griffin back in his prime, you gotta hear how Charles responds. Classic.

Am black and I play it with my Black and White friends alike. His perception of black people "don't play beer pong". Must be the environment where he grew up. Poor thing.

Charles, your commentary is always in terms of black or white. It's really tired at this point. Get some new material...

This old, loud mouthed, ignorant, idiot should just go away. He is a disgrace to all decent, black people here and abroad.

So funny. You know if I said black people don't play beer pong a tong of people would call me racist but coming from Charles its not. That's funny. Jordan plays it I guess and so does Snoop according to your report on biebers party.
I'm white and never played a single game or been at a place where people play beer pong. Maybe im old fashioned. If im gonna have a beer I just drink it. I don't play with it first

OK    

So he's met every single black person on the planet and confirmed none of them play beer pong? What a tool.
