I have a few things to say about RGIII

F*ck the Redskins because they are a divisional rival, but RGIII is growing on me as a player.

I like what he said about african American fans and I think the kid has bright future ahead of him.

I think he can marry a white woman if he wants to and that doesnt make him any less a brother than anybody else.

Some people (like RGIII) get surrounded by people who they wouldnt normally meet if they werent big superstars. By the time RGIII gets to the pros, he probably spent more time around white women than black women because of the environment he has been in.

Love is love and people of different races fall in love all the time when they disregard the racist BS that permeates society.

My wife is Italian and the only time we think about our races being different is when the world reminds us...

So its really dumb for this rob parker guy to try and call Griffin out for being a cornball (whatever that means)

As far as the Black QB thing goes? I dont think its done until one of these guys wins a superbowl. Alot of people forget Doug williams won a super bowl and there is still alot of fans who buy into and promote the black QB stereotypes.. So, No its not done with, but its not the 70s anymore either. At least black Qbs can get a shot these days where they couldnt back then.

But overall, I like this RGIII kid, and I think he should continue to do his thing as he has so far in his career.

lol, If RG3 had two baby mama's would he be considered a text book african american by Rob Parker?

I remember last year ESPN did a segment that Jordy Nelson was benefiting from his white skin as he was "deceptively fast" and this allowed him to trick NFL defenses.

Rob Parker calling someone a corny bother is comedy. Take a look in the mirror, seriously.

The whole "there is a specific way that you can be black" is bullshit. Seriously, it tires me right the fuck out.

If you are black you are black. You don't have to be a certain type of person to be considered so. To quote Childish Gambino: "We all look the same to the cops, ain't that good enough?"

He's an idiot, and I think it's partly done to be 'controversial' to try and get people to tune in. I don't really care for that kind of shit journalism. It's pretty much the reason why I don't really watch those shows anymore.

Seriously though, these comments are absolutely pathetic. I hope he get's fired from ESPN over this shit. It's just so stupid and ridiculous.

Rob Parker has always been a joke. Remember when he reported that Kirk Cousins was involved in a fight with the Michigan State hockey team? Except then it was discovered that Cousins was in church with his parents when the fight happened, and Parker was suspended for 2 weeks for it. The guy is a joke.

Rob Parker =

"Cornball brother"? He basically called RG3 an uncle tom on national TV. How this guy's managed to stay at ESPN this long I have no clue...

Whenever I see/hear this guy on the First Take panel, I tune out.

Exactly what I was Gunna say. The guy is an embarrassment and has been to me for a Long while. He's not very bright and has made COrNbALL statements in the past. He tries to hard to look like a modern black guy but he comes off as a shithead.

DC is called Chocolate city. Steven A has acknowledged this a few times regarding RGIII so it's easy to see how black folks can identify and b proud of his influence. He went to the perfect realistic team, as did Andrew Luck.

Griffin breaks so many molds that simpletons jus still cannot compute. They, namely Parker here, doesn't know how to praise accurately so he bashes. This is the same black guy who said when he was 10 that he was Gunna be an NfL QB and then a lawyer....

He's an NFL QB with a background degree in political science...ppl jus need throw stones even if someone is a bona fide role model all of AMERICA should be proud of.

Anybody have a clip of Rob Parker's quote? I'm interested in actually watching the awkward/pathetic, train wreck that I'm imagining it was in my head.
