Rob Parker apologizes for calling
Robert Griffin III a ‘cornball brother’
on ESPN’s ‘First Take’

New York Daily News, by Jaime Uribarri

Original Article

Posted By:Howard Adams, 12/19/2012 11:12:00 PM

Disgraced ESPN talking head Rob Parker issued a full-on apology for his racially inflammatory remarks about Robert Griffin III that set off a media firestorm and earned him an indefinite suspension from the network. In his first public statement since questioning the Washington Redskins quarterback´s blackness on ESPN´s "First Take" last Thursday, Parker tweeted a mea culpa for failing to "understand how the issue of race in sports is a sensitive one and needs to be handled with great care." "The failure was in how I chose to discuss it on First Take,...

Comments:
My only question for Mr Parker is whether this is heartfelt repentance and asking the sports fans of America for forgiveness of an attitude that is completely reprehensible to so many Americans. WWDMLKD, What would Dr Martin Luther King do?

I think twitter is a totally inappropriate place to issue this apology. He spoke this garbage on air - he needs to apologize on air. Otherwise it might seem that somebody else wrote these words and he hit ´send´ (or whatever you do on twitter) and no one can know his authenticity unless he actually speaks the words himself.

Just once I´d like to see an apology more like this:

"I am sorry I was completely whacked out in the brain when I said those totally idiotic things. Please forgive me as I´m trying to forgive myself for being such an ignorant idiot."

It wasn´t that he said them on air. It wasn´t that he said them at all. It´s that he felt them. By all accounts RGIII is a decent human being. That´s a negative in Parker´s world, I guess. Shame on him.

A tweeted apology? Wow, what courage! It´s in the same vein as a correction in the newspapers which appears on Page 17B - after the personal attacks were made above the fold on Page 1. Such sincerity!

I agree with #1, twitter´s not the place. He should have called Robert Griffin and apologized. Then a public apology.

Insincerity is the hallmark of a fraud. This Parker brother is down with "the cause." Well, that´s fine if you see the cause as holding up the likes of RGIII as a role model for positive development of the intellect as well as the athletic. But Parker brother is only down with those who promote the twisted culture that is the 21st Century Black Experience - drugs, crime, guns, out of wedlock birth rate that is closer to 100% than 0%, and chronic illiteracy and academic achievement. The idea that an educated black man is not "black enough" points to the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the current "leadership" that promotes itself as the protectors of the aggrieved.

The fact of the matter is that the continued devaluation of education, moral turpitude, and responsibility for ones actions is the right that the current black leadership wishes to protect. It is more lucrative for those who prosper from the destruction of a people to continue to promote a culture that destroys those people, all while raking in money like the grifters and confidence men that they actually are. Rob Parker simply wants a slice of that pie.

You guys say its a double standard because Parker is black, but I somewhat disagree. If he had been a white outspoken lefty, he would have been treated the same way. The double standard is on ideology more than race.

I fail to see why this is such a big deal. It was an immature and nasty thing to say, but...this is sports talk radio. He was expressing a point of view that exists among certain people but is usually addressed in a more oblique fashion.

I certainly do not think he should be fired.

This is apology is for HOW he said it and WHERE he said it, not for WHAT he said. It is the same kind of faux apology that the Gagnam rapper issued when his past anti-American comments came back to haunt him. That so many people actually think these evasive, slippery public relations statements -which were obviously composed by professionals- amount to genuine apologies for what was said is a frightening comment on current reading skills.

The A.J. Gaston Conference, which starts Monday in Birmingham, Ala., is a celebration of black history month with an emphasis on wealth creation and economic stability. Gaston, a black businessman who supported the end of legal segregation in Birmingham, is a great example of my tribe, the black bourgeoisie. While most of the country is celebrating the civil rights movement, which was defined by marching, forgiving, and nonviolence, this conference celebrates lessons of the black bourgeoisie who created communities, business institutions, organizations and private educational institutions that continue to enrich generations.

Three men charged with the robbery and homicide of a Washington & Jefferson College football player and the robbery and aggravated assault of his teammate appeared individually Friday morning in Washington County Court for their formal arraignments before Judge Edward Borkowski, who said the procedural hurdle starts the official clock ticking on each of their cases. A general charge of homicide includes first-, second- and third-degree murder, and potentially voluntary and involuntary manslaughter. The prosecution does not intend to seek the death penalty in the Oct. 4, 2012, killing of Tim McNerney, 21, of Butler.

During the ride, McCrea “leaned over to look at something on the phone and then he leaned in to kiss me,” White recalls.

When the main US federal emergency agency arrives at the scene of a disaster-hit area, one of the first places it turns to is the local Waffle House – and not just for its officials to grab a quick bite. Craig Fugate, the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, came up with the idea of the "Waffle House index" as an informal way of measuring the impact of a disaster. The chain, which has a large number of branches in tornado-prone areas, has a robust emergency management plan. The index has three levels.

Microsoft is preparing to reverse course over key elements of its Windows 8 operating system, marking one of the most prominent admissions of failure for a new mass-market consumer product since Coca-Cola’s New Coke fiasco nearly 30 years ago. “Key aspects” of how the software is used will be changed when Microsoft releases an updated version of the operating system this year, Tami Reller, head of marketing and finance for the Windows business, said in an interview with the Financial Times. Referring to difficulties many users have had with mastering the software, she added: “The learning curve is definitely real.”

The Columbus High School Mighty Cardinals had won the 4x100-meter relay--by seven yards, no less--and had a shot at the state championship. That was until Junior sprinter Derrick Hayes pointed to the sky. Hayes´s father, K.C., said that his son made a gesture of thanks to God, but raising a hand to the sky is considered excessive celebration according to the state scholastic rules. And with that, the team was disqualified.

France says 75 per cent

France will lose its best footballers due to President François Hollande’s “crazy” 75 per cent tax on millionaire earners, the country’s football league warned on Tuesday, after a failed attempt by leading players to avoid the levy. The supertax, a key electoral promise, has already sent several Gallic public figures, including Gérard Depardieu, the actor, running for fiscal cover. The levy, which looked like it was going to be shelved, was revived last week by the Socialist president, who stipulated that companies, not individuals, will now foot the bill.

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

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

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

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

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
