ESPN COMMENTATOR: RGIII A 'CORNBALL BROTHER' DUE TO POSSIBLE REPUBLICANISM
http://www.breitbart.com ^ | December 13 2012 | by BREITBART NEWS

Posted on 12/13/2012 3:20:25 PM PST by Para-Ord.45

ESPN’s Rob Parker dropped a bombshell today when he called NFL rookie star and MVP candidate Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III a “cornball brother.” That means, according to Parker, that RGIII isn’t a real black person, and that he might not be “one of us” or “down for the cause.”

What was his justification? RGIII is engaged to a white woman, and could be a Republican.

Seriously.

Pardon the Interruption `s Mike Wilbon must be seriously conflicted right about now.

His adoration of Griffin knew no bounds because of his avowed racism. Now Griffin is a conservative !? Think I`ll tune in tomorrow to watch his fat head explode.

Go Pack Go. Why wouldn't RGIII be a republican? It was the republicans that pushed through an Emancipation Proclamation and held a Civil War which killed 750,000 Americans over black "folks"

By today's population standards, the Civil War would cost 7 million American lives.

Aside from his hair (which I can overlook in spite of being an old fogey), Robert Griffin III is really a credit to his race. I don't mean that sarcastically in any way. It's just the manner that we children of the 1940s characterize someone who's well-behaved, articulate and performs well. I was impressed with his actions both on and off the field during his senior year at Baylor, a private Christian university presided by a truly good man, Kenneth Starr. Griffin comes from a military family and his love for Our Savior is evident.

Honestly, when I'm about to dismiss the black race as a hopeless cause with their 90%+ support of Marxism and the rise of black-on-white crime (such as the recent murder of a young mother in Beaver Falls, PA), along comes a special human being such as RGIII to give me pause. I really hope the day comes when people like Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell and Robert Griffin III are the norm for blacks and not just a small subset.

The Cause?... Just because RGIII doesn't want to turn the entire Country into a Detroit makes him a bad guy?

This Clown should be fired, what's that two Black Idiot Sportswriters/Announcers in one week? Then you have the Moron Rughead Costas. Please keep this $hit out of Sports.

So, according to Rob Parker, athletes should be separated along political/Religious/racial lines.

Rob Parker should be fired. Immediately. If not sooner.

Griffin got into college at age 17. He got his undergraduate degree in political science with a 3.6 GPA and a masters in communication.

Sounds like he may have a future in poliics!

Indeed he may. I continue to be how impressed at how well-spoken Robert Griffin III is. His speech after winning the Heisman was the King's English -- free of jive, slang or sub-standard eubonic nonsense. I can't help but contrast Griffin with fellow Texan and Heisman runner-up, Vince Young, who punctuates every few words with "man" even when being interviewed by a woman. For all I know, Young may be a decent guy but his mush-mouthed manner of speaking and street slang does not reflect well on him.

Bu the way, the latest Heisman winner (and another Texan), Johnny Manziel, initially seemed a bit nervous when delivering the acceptance speech. After getting past the butterflies, he was very impressive and showed maturity far beyond his years (having just turned 20).

Rob Parker is a DMF. Dumb Mutha #@##er. He was driven out of the Detroit area sports market because he's a DMF.

RGIII specifically avoids talking about partisan politics.

Huh? No, I'm an 'Uncle Tom' and a 'sell-out', because I'm a conservative who votes Republican, and who believes in the Founding Principles of America.

The black commentators you're referring to, are all a bunch of slaves on the Democrat mind control plantation. Hardly 'Uncle Toms'.

Because they are part of the democrat plantation, they have sold out their fellows for their own perceived gained. That to me is an uncle tom. Some may be sincere, but at this point, given how the left exploits them and keeps them ignorant and in poverty, for them to continue towing the rat line, while at the same time hating on those who are conservatives is, to me, the definition of selling out.

And yes, I am referring to liberal commentators, many of which work at espn.

Just damn pathetic on so many levels.......

PS: Does anyone else find it annoying in how they refer to Griffin as an acronym? “RG-III”

Why not just call all players acronyms? Troy Aikman could have been ‘TA-I for example....

Oh, I understand your perception of the term, but it's not commonly understood to have that meaning.

Among blacks, an 'Uncle Tom' is a black person who isn't 'down for the struggle' against the majority culture/population/traditions, or you're someone who considers themselves to be part of the mainstream.

In other words, if you're not a honky hating, class warfare raging, black power advocating Marxist, then you're a 'sell out' to the 'cause'. You're a disgraceful, self-loathing black person, who doesn't deserve the skin you were born in.

That'd be me.

I have become very racist against most blacks and I remove the racism on individual basis when it is deserved, like with RG3, Herman Cain, Walter Williams and thank God many more decent people who happen to be black.

I don’t want to be judgmental, but after the foolish behavior of 90% of black “culture” it is a defense mechanism.

After all, Jamie Foxx apparently dreams about killing all the white people... I am sure he isn’t a minority among his “brothers”.

“down for the cause.”

What exactly is this cause he speaks of?

Struggle ?

To continue struggling ?

If Parker were “down for the cause” maybe he should quit his job and go on welfare.

If, in fact, RGIII is a Republican, or at least, conservative guy, it wouldn’t surprise me. I haven’t heard him or anyone else definitively say he is, thought.

This could be his “calling out”. He may come out tomorrow and say he’s a big Obama fan. I think if he says it, it’s true, not because he’s afraid of anything.

Same here and I'll confess that my Thanksgiving wasn't ruined when the otherwise hated Redskins beat the 'Boys. Robert Griffin III was amazing and, as he mentioned during the post-game presser, certainly captured the eye of owner Jerry Jones. The scrambling and improvisational ability of both RG3 and Johnny Manziel certainly add to the excitement of the game.

“Down with the cause” = “bankrupting the united states”.

Maybe if RGIII played the nock out game on weekends he could redeem himself in Mr. Parkers eyes.

ESPN can shove it.

The scuttlebutt from a friend of mine who’s a Baylor alumna and lives down in Texas was that RG3’s public decent-guy persona is the real deal. He is what he looks like, a solid person and intelligent young man in addition to being an amazing quarterback. (The fact he’s giving my Redskins hope for the first time in several years also helps me like the guy, admittedly.)

I wonder if Rob Parker thinks crybaby Cam Newton—a hot topic down here in Charlotte—is a “real brotha.”

And yeah, racist Wilbon is between a rock and a hard place right now. Of course, I seriously doubt PTI will ever mention it, ESPN wouldn’t want to eat their own.
