ESPN commentator on RG3: “He’s kind of black, but he’s not really” | ProFootballTalk

Rob Parker may be an idiot...but at least he is an honest idiot.

Nah.......he's just an idiot. Shouldn't even have a job.

Stephen A - whom I do know - handed Parker his butt in the argument. Blackness is not something that can be quantified, and there are no accepted criteria - except that you've gotta be black.

I agree with Stephen A. Smith.

After seeing this on First Take, I just can't help but feel this was scripted. It's the natural skeptic in me. I can't believe a 48 year old man would stick his neck out like that on public television.

That annoys me to no end. How can a black man not be black? It makes absolutely no sense.

Rob Parker is a moron and hopefully ESPN punishes him appropriately.

LOL. I guess RG3 is not Black to him because he has a dad, is polite not out in the street bling, blinging trying to bag as many women as possible.

Sheer unadulterated raciism. What if a white announcer griped about a white player having a black fiancee? If ESPN does not can this guy they should be tarred, fealtherd, and run out of town on a rail.

According to many African-Americans, speaking properly (RGIII), being engaged to a white (RGIII) and being a conservative (RGIII again) means you are a Sell Out Uncle Tom Oreo.
