Earlier this year, TNT announced it was greenlighting a six-episode series called “The Race Card” hosted by Charles Barkley. The show will not be about sports, but will be about social issues and examine the hot button topics that are on Chuckster’s mind.
TNT has released a new video of Barkley giving you the show’s mission statement.
When asked by someone off camera, Barkley said race was the biggest issue for him in his entire life and he wanted to hold a conversation on the topic. One of his interesting takes, “Hollywood does an awful job. If you’re a Muslim, you know you’re going to be portrayed negatively.”
Barkley adds, “I just want to give people a seat at the table and give an honest opinion, but nobody’s an expert.”
The show will premiere in early 2017.
