Stephen Jackson had some harsh words for Charles Barkley on Friday night.
Last week Jackson found himself in hot water when he defended NFL running back DeSean Jackson for posting anti-semitic fake Hitler quotes on Instagram.
Stephen would later backtrack on his support of DeSean but went on to make another anti-semitic remark in the process when he implied that Jews controlled the banks which led to CNN’s Don Lemon calling him out on it.
Person he’s on w: "The point is, you did not just say to me that Jews are not trying to divide the black community."
Jackson: "You know that for a fact? … You know who the Rothschilds are? They own all the banks.”
Jackson then said, “I haven’t said one thing that’s untrue yet"

Former NBA player Stephen Jackson tells CNN’s @DonLemon it was never his intent to defend a series of anti-Semitic posts from Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

Stephen Jackson says his Rothschilds-banks comment must be viewed in context of greater conversation. Fair. So, I watched it.

This afternoon, Barkley went on his “Steam Room’ podcast and criticized several prominent black athletes/celebrities including Stephen Jackson for promoting anti-semitism while doing social justice work in the community.
“I don’t understand how you beat hatred with more hatred.”

Listen, DeSean Jackson, Stephen Jackson, Nick Cannon, Ice Cube. Man, what the hell are y’all doing? Y’all want racial equality, I don’t understand how insulting another group helps our cause. We can’t allow black people to be prejudiced also, especially if we’re asking for white folks to respect us…I’m so disappointed in these men but I don’t understand how you beat hatred with more hatred.
After Barkley’s post went viral, Jackson took to Instagram and delivered a profane expletive-filled tirade directed at the NBA hall of Famer.
