questioning RGIII's blackness
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
Wob is a moran of the highest order. This is the same guy that accused Kirk Cousins of beating a hockey player senseless.

Rob Parker is the most racist journalist on tv IYAM. Every time a race issue comes up he just goes off in a wild direction. Was glad to see that Stephen A. Smith put him in his place on First Take today and basically told him to shut up.
"One of us".
I like how Smith pretty much called him out. He's an idiot, and should never be on ESPN again for being blatantly racist. What the hell does "One of us" even mean? So what if he has a white or black fiance?
I just don't get it. Is it Thug Life Rob is looking for? Would that make RG3 "one of us"?
He also said that he asked his journalist friends in Washington if he was a "brother" or a "cornball brother". Yeah, your not a little racist are you Rob? Dude has always been this way and he's going to get slammed for this one.
He also had a comment about RGIII wearing braids and that he didn't get it because that was basically for "urban" brothers.

What makes it somehow even dumber is that these are the ideologies that aim to enslave blacks to a regressed social state. He's warring against the progression of "us" by perpetrating such foolishness.
FWIW as someone who has no reason to dislike or like Baylor or anything RGIII related, RGIII seems like a terrific person, regardless of race. He represents all pro althetes well, not just black ones.
How this @hole still finds employment is an endictment on every single media outlet in America.
And that is what RGIII was trying to say. That he was more than just a "black athlete". He sees himself as an athlete period. He didn't say that he resented being black or anything. He just said that he would rather be looked at for what he does in his profession and how well he does it; rather than being lumped in a group just because he's black.
Well Rob Parker of course wants him to come out and wear Malcom X t-shirts and "represent". RGIII is a highly intelligent and highly athletic dude. I have no problem that he just wants to be treated as a qb instead of a "black qb".
RGIII is a great representation for Black athletes.To say he's not black enough is ignorant. Should he he be blacker by hanging out w/ Vince, JaMarcus, & Vick
I don't see one person that is hypocritical ITT. I would love to hear your reasoning for that statement.
Does anyone know what or if ESPN is going to do anything about this? I havent been able to watch First Take for a while now because it always seems to be the same subject being argued by the same people. Never really cared for RP before this and definitely wont watch it now. RG3 has been nothing but a great representative of the black race. Finished his degree ahead of time, very well spoken and never been in trouble. Im not sure what else RP wants him to do "for the cause". What a joke
You're fvcking stupid if you think that. That journalist would be crucified for even using the term "wigger". I mean he would be killed in the public's opinion if he said that on national television.
I would disagree 100%
Yeah I couldn't believe Rob went there. Especially since he has never struck me as very pro black, urban, hood or whatever else you want to call it. Its like Bryant Gumble calling Drake soft. ESPN put out a statement saying that they will review it and discipline Parker.
As for hypocrites in this thread, when has a journalistic called someone a "wigger" or said someone was too white? But if by "wigger" you mean someone who acts urban/hood or whatever nobody complained about Jason Williams when he played in the NBA. I would have every bit as big a problem if someone got onto Dirk for his black fiance as I do with Parker for getting onto RG3 about his white fiance.
The white dude would lose his job, the black guy is going to have to give some half-assed at best apology and will be fine. We both know it.
I would personally bash the journalist if it was the other way around. I'm assuming that I wouldn't be the only one either. Rob Parker is a racist and we have white journalists that are racist as well. I fvcking snapped on the journalist that called the Rutgers girl a "nappy headed hoe".
Calling a spade a spade is one thing, but RGIII doesn't deserve to be called out for not being black enough.
I would also like to see Skip Bayless quit being a pvssy when it comes to these matters and allow Rob Parker go off on his tangents without thanking him for his honesty afterwards. It's sad that Stephen A. Smith had to basically tell Parker that he was an idiot.
Skip, you don't have to be a fvcking coward. Sit up and say that he's FOS.
Parker was a Detroit media guy before he went to ESPN. Had a show called "Parker and the Man" locally. He's a shock jock analyist. And a complete douche.
how does that guy have a job still. If that were a white man up their saying that he would have his bags sitting at the front door before the show was even over.
Enslave blacks ?? dude STFU
I'm assuming that he didn't enslave any blacks and you have never spoken to a black man that has been enslaved. STFU
Then keep on crying.
