Rob Parker suspended
indefinitely for RGIII comments

Washington Post, by Cindy Boren

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/14/2012 12:30:49 PM

Rob Parker has been suspended indefinitely by ESPN because of controversial racial comments he made Thursday about Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. “Following yesterday’s comments Rob Parker has been suspended until further notice,” ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys said. “We are conducting a full review.” Parker on “First Take” had asked whether RGIII is “a brother, or is he a cornball brother? … He’s not real. Okay, he’s black, he kind of does the thing, but he’s not really down with the cause. He’s not one of us.

Comments:
If a white guy had said something like this he would have been fired. Nothing makes these angry morons happy.

Apparently, RG3 is not fully on the democratic plantation. He is well spoken, not part of the cool scene where one earns street cred as being black enough. He should have been fired.

Mark Levin admirably went off on this racist last night over several segments.

All I can add is good for ESPN. Now finish the job.

"Indefinitely" should mean either forever or until Parker is used as a tackle dummy for the Redskins.

I sent ESPN an email on their "contact us" page and told them that we watch ESPN as a diversion to politics and race baiting. Rob Parker, ESPN´s ambassador, IQ of 12, must apologize and so should ESPN. Despicable.

Parker´s comments were a result of talking with his cohorts who are troubled with RGIII. He is not alone in his thinking. The suspension only serves to bury the broader racialist ugliness. Hopefully, Parker will be resentful and run his mouth some more and not let the issue disappear. We need a much larger discussion than Parker is nuts.

The morons of the world like Rob Parker are a major cause of stupidity in my country.
Mr. Parker sports are about "talent" (you have none) and "drive" (yours is only bias) and respect (you have none given or received). You "racist political" commentary is
a. uncalled for.
b. unnecessary
c. stupid beyond understanding
d. has nothing to do with sports.
e. just shows your racist ideology to the world

If I was one on you employers you would be looking for employment by the end of the commentary of stupidity, maybe with the Rev "Race Baiter" Sharpton or Rev “Race Hustler” Jackson. Your limited skill would probably be a better fit in that scam field than sports.
Knowing the liberal media bias and desire for more race myths to propagandize you will probably keep you position and I will just have to find a non-racist network to get sports information in the future.

Parker only believes MLK´s "content of one´s character and not the color of one´s skin" on MLK´s birthday. The rest of the year, Parker is fomenting and then cementing racial hatred of white´s and other black people who do not play the racist game.

Stupid is bone deep and Parker is just eaten up with it. Fire him and never allow him to be on TV again or even write for a newspaper. Words and beliefs have consequences.

The black racists want to run this kid´s career before it gets started. He´s a black Tebow. I´m not a Redskin fan by a long shot but this guy has really energized the fan base.It´s not just the fact he could be a republican,but that he speaks up for God.If you don´t tow the black line,you´re cooked. This movie with the N word used over a 100times is a disgrace also but it´s getting leftist acclaim.

RGIII earned his bachelor´s degree, political science major, dean´s list.
Rob Parker was speaking for the majority of blacks, however, because RGIII does not fit the ghetto rat mold.

RGIII is a very thoughtful, polite, well spoken, intelligent and considerate young man. He also happens to be one terrific athlete, perhaps as good as any has ever been previously known.

What a shame it is that RGIII doesn´t act like a ghetto thug. Therefore he must be attacked for his many admirable traits because he´s making the typical dolt look bad. Yeah right! Crawl back under your rock Parker. And please stay there !

The Democratic Party promotes racism, and at the same time, has the gall to charge repeatedly that the Republicans are racist. As far as I´m concerned, an individual is and individual, and when he tags himself with a race or any type of "ism", that shrinks him.

I´m a white southern conservative. The racists Liberal Democrats would label me as racists because I would never support a liberal black politician.

But I would risk supporting RG3 to represent me as my representative or senator or president based upon his values and how he has handled this instance.

We need desperately blacks like RG3 in political leadership. Imagine how differently race relations would be today if a RG3 clone would have been elected in 2008 instead of the racist tyrant we have now.

Before the suspension I wrote to ESPN and received the following response:

"Hello, Thanks for contacting us. ESPN First Take is a debate oriented show that focuses on current and often controversial topics in sports. Our analysts are hired to share their opinions based on past experience and knowledge and we understand that not everyone will agree with their perspectives. We do value your input and your comments will be shared with our producers.

ESPN Viewer Response"

I had compared Mr. Parker´s statements and ESPN´s non-reaction with Rush Limbaugh´s "Donovan McNabb" statement and his subsequent firing by ESPN.

I asked for Mr. Parker´s firing to show that they show no favoritism.

Looks like they suspended him instead. This to me shows they are indeed playing favorites. Big surprise there.

I know nothing about RGlll, except the name shows he comes from a line of two proud fathers, that named their sons after themselves .
Evidently they were good role models, making their son and grandson a thinking indivual, not just someone that wants to be defined by something that happened hundreds of years ago.
This is what our country needs and what AA children need. Instead we get hundreds of years of "playing the card".
The ones that play the card, cannot stand the ones that do not fall in line.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
