Hall Of Famer Charles Barkley On Zimmerman: ' I Agree With The Verdict' And 'Media Does Not Have Clean Hands' (Video)

By Susan Duclos

NBA legend and Hall Of Famer Charles Barkley appeared on CNBC’s Closing Bell and candidly discussed the verdict of not guilty for Goerge Zimmerman for second degree murder of Trayvon Martin as well as the lesser charge of manslaughter.

When the host, Maria Bartiromo asked if Barkley had any thoughts on the George Zimmerman verdict, Barkely responded with "Well, I agree with the verdict." He also states "I’m sorry that young kid got killed, but they didn’t have enough evidence to charge him."

Barkley continued on to take the media to task by saying the media does not have a pure heart nor clean hands, as well as to point out that racism isn't one sided and there are "a lot of black people who are racist too."
