Maybe he felt guilty for saying a whole lot of crazy about black people. Or, maybe his co-stars from those hilarious “Road To The Final Four” commercials, Spike Lee and Samuel L. Jackson, put a bug in his ear. But whatever the reason, we are over the moon that former NBA baller Sir Charles Barkley is donating $1Million dollars to Morehouse College, the Historically Black College for men in Atlanta, Ga.

The TNT analyst announced the gift during a media conference call for the American Century Championship’s celebrity golf tournament earlier this week.

During the call, Barkley, who reportedly just signed an 8 to 10 year extension with the TV show “Inside The NBA,” said, “I just got a new contract, and my goal is always to give a million dollars a year away to charity.”

In fact, “the round mound of rebound” announced $3 million in gifts that day (must have been a good contract). Barkley gave Lee and Jackson’s beloved Morehouse $1 million, and he also donated $1 million to his own alma mater, Auburn University. He also announced another $1 million to the Wounded Warriors project, a charity for veterans, saying, “I think it’s a joke the  way they treat our soldiers.”
