“I feel sorry that a young kid got killed, but they didn’t have enough evidence to charge him. Something clearly went wrong that night…but if you look at the case — and there was some racial profiling — something changed the dynamic that night,” Barkley said on the program.
“The main thing I feel bad for, [is that the trial] gives every white person and black person who are racist a platform to vent.”
“I don’t like when race gets out in the media because…I don’t think the media has clean hands,” Barkley said.
Barkley also commented that he did think that it was wrong from Zimmerman to profile Martin, be also believes that during the scuffle between the two men, Martin “flip[ped] the switch and started beating the hell out of Mr. Zimmerman.”
