Who Are the Good, Bad and the Ugly Americans of the Olympics So Far?

August 01, 1992

Charles Barkley makes me sick! It's not enough that the U.S. Olympic basketball team has to only show up to win the gold medal, but Barkley seems to think it's necessary to bring with him what he calls "a ghetto thing." What exactly is "a ghetto thing"? Does it mean being an ignorant jerk with no class?

Not only did Barkley shame himself by that statement and his actions, he shamed all people who are from and still living in ghettos. Charles Barkley is a disgrace to this country, a disgrace to basketball and a disgrace to the Olympic spirit.
