Charles Barkley to Get His Own Show "The Race Card" on TNT

This has all the makings of disaster on national television.

Charles Barkley seems to be the go to narrative on race relations in the United States, and TNT is hell-bent on cashing in on his hot takes by giving the Hall of Famer his own show, according to Deadline.

Decrying partisan politics and entrenched corporate interests, the show aims to “bust up the echo-chamber mentality,” each week taking a look at the hardened positions around the day’s hot-button issues, with an emphasis on America’s racial divide. Barkley will tap varied points of view from tastemakers and cultural leaders, with the intent being to challenge and test deeply held beliefs taken as fact, with Barkley even trying the positions on himself before reaching his own conclusions.

Said Berkley in a statement: “We as Americans never discuss the issue of race in this country and how it impacts everything in our lives until something bad happens. I see this project as a way to talk about race, class and cultural differences and challenge everyone’s status quo.”

In each of the six episodes, Barkley will travel across the country seeking to find out why we are so divided.
