    NBA legend Charles Barkley on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” Thursday said he “agrees” with the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial because there there wasn’t “enough evidence to charge him.” He also took a shot at the media for giving both black and white racists a “platform to vent their ignorance” in the aftermath of the trial.

    The man is 6' 5" and upwards of 250. Would YOU want to be the person responsible for shutting off his mike? ;)

    There are other ways of silencing him. I imagine the NSA has collected enough dirt on him to convince him to keep his opinions to himself.

    Obviously not. You did read the OP, right?

    I wouldn't. But I'm not a liberal.

    Unlikely. Barkley's dirt is already public knowledge.
