Retired NBA player Matt Barnes found himself at the center of backlash after posting an image quote to Instagram saying "Black on Black crime" is a "bigger issue" than police brutality.
“Y’all know I go hard on cops killing unarmed minorities, mostly blacks…Only because they’re paid to protect & serve, not to play judge jury & executioner! But we all know the bigger problem is we killing each other… Daily!!” Barnes captioned the post. ”We can point the finger [and] try to blame whomever but that’s facts!! We need to cherish this life, cause we only get one.. Stop doing s**t to fit in, to impress others or sell records.”
