MIAMI -- Charles Barkley says black people have "got to do better" in response to last week's shootings of black men by police and the sniper attack that left five officers dead in Dallas.

In an interview on ESPN radio's Dan Le Batard show Tuesday, Barkley said that police "have made some mistakes, that don't give us the right to riot and shoot cops." He continued that it bothers him that black people "never get mad when black people kill each other." He added that "there's a lot of blame to go around."

The 11-time NBA all-star and TNT commentator has often been outspoken on issues of race.
