    Rob Parker of ESPN questions whether RG3 is really a "brother"

    Face. ****ing. Palm.

    http://www.sbnation.com/2012/12/13/3...Iu06mHhjgk5NVs

    "Is he a brother, or is he a cornball brother," Parker asked. "I keep hearing these things. We all know he has a white fiancée. There was all this talk about he's a Republican."

    Parker's questioning of whether or not RGIII was "one of us" even made Stephen A. Smith a little squeamish. "I'm uncomfortable with where we just went," Smith said.

    I always wondered if Parker was a journalist with integrity. But then I remembered he's "one of them", an ESPN loudmouthed hack

    Nothing will happen. If he was white he'd be dead meat.

    Just like the new Django movie where ni**er is said about over 100 times. If you say it though U R dead.

    Exactly. BS double standard. This would be huge news if something like this was said by someone white. Person would be fired on the spot instead espn shows it as a highlight on first take.

    I hate that political ideology and political-racial ideology has crept into ESPN. This is nothing new from Rob Parker. Steven Smith also put in his two cents and it was worded differently but the same thing. A lot of "down with the cause" stuff.

    The United States has a black President. Equality has been achieved. More over, it's "equality" with advantages through affirmative action. If there's still this racially unifying "cause" to move upwards and upwards it ceases to be about equality and becomes an Afro-centric form of Neo-Nazism which should have ZERO place in sports journalism, especially on a mainstream program.

    Jason Whitlock is the same exact way.

    Might not be politically-correct to criticize this but at this stage who gives a $#&@ about what's politically correct and not?

    Rob Parker should of gotten fired a long time ago.
    This isn't the first time he's injected race into sports discussion. It's become something of an MO for him. I can only imagine how much he would be crying if Aaron Rodgers or Clay Mathews or the Pats anglo-offense started bringing attention to the fact that they're white.

    And Rob Parker probably thinks what he said makes him a brother.

    He is never getting fired. SAS said the N word on the air and they did nothing to him.

    I am not saying I am color blind or anything, but i just realized that the pats could field an all white offense at one time and i never noticed. I guess BB's friendship with Jim Brown and his prison work would get in the way of some idiot saying something.
