ESPN host Rob Parker suggests RGIII ‘pushes away’ from ‘his people’
Grio ^

Posted on 01/07/2013 11:11:46 PM PST by chessplayer

It hasn’t been a great 24 hours for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.

The rookie captain wasn’t able to finish Sunday’s playoff loss to the Seahawks after his knee buckled midway through the fourth quarter.

And then Rob Parker re-emerged.

Parker continued:

“It was just a conversation that’s had in the black community when athletes, or famous entertainers or whatever, push away from their people. And that’s really what it’s about. You saw it with O.J. Simpson, and some other people, where they say, ‘Well I’m not black, I’m O.J.’ So it’s more about that, not about RGIII and what’s going on. It’s more about this thing that we’ve battled for years and why people have pushed away from their people. It’s more about that.”

Affirmative action sportswriters are as stupid as affirmative action reporters like Juan Williams.

Scumbags like Parker won’t be happy until Griffin wears his hat sideways, talks in ebonics, and cuts a rap video.

Oh, they will settle for a drug conviction (using or selling), DUI or even whupping up on his old lady or bringing a gun to the locker room...

BUT the big Kahoona will be if/when he starts dissing his backup, the OTHER white meat.

Many Americans are praying for ya RGIII... including this one. I must admire someone with two military parents and a passion for his job. Nice of the folks to kick him while he is down.

As a white guy I generally care as much for blacks as they care about me, but I genuinely pity those victimized for not playing the race husters’ game. Liberal blacks should appreciate how many of them were being fed, clothed, and housed by RGIII’s taxes. He “contributed” more than their “leaders” (and more than most whites).

It's a black thing, baby. You wouldn't understand.

Give me a break.

Imagine some commentator saying, "You know, in the white community we say blah blah blah...."

"Community"? How frickin' RACIST can you get Parker?

I thought "his people" would have been Americans. RGIII does sound more like "my people" than someone like Rob Parker.

Rob Parker's comment tells you all you need to know about him, those two words..."his people".

“I thought “his people” would have been Americans. RGIII does sound more like “my people” than someone like Rob Parker.”

RGIII lost all credibility because he knew not only who his father was, but his grandfather as well. The “community” apparently isn’t down wit’ dat.

“.. lost all credibility because he knew ho his father was...”

IMHO, this sentiment has nothing to do with the fact that he has a Mom and Dad, a white fiance, or speaks “white” (whatever that means). It has to do 100% with the fact that he is a conservative and that little fact is “letting the black community down”. Rob Parker is a complete moron. Who elected him as “king of how black people should act”?

Dear Black Community,

Get over yourselves. You are not special. You are like everyone else. You are just another citizen of this country, no more, no less. Your virulent racism is tiring. We have moved beyond it. It's time you moved off the Democrat Plantation and get past it.

I didn’t even know he had a white fiance (I really don’t care about football, especially if the NY Giants are already out). That alone spelled his doom as far as the race industry experts were concerned.

RGIII has probably made more money already as a rookie than 75% of Washington DC’s residents combined; he has no reason to look back. I do hope he recovers from his injuries, though; I know running quarterbacks have shorter careers.

I remember over 10 years ago a black coworker was always popping-off with stupid comments about black people and white people. All the time, even when it had nothing to do with what we were talking about. It was impossible to have a conversation with him that didn’t involve race sooner or later. I mentioned to another black coworker that this guy’s little sayings really aggravated me. His reply to me was “Well, you have to understand, So-and-so is just a really race-conscious guy.” That meant it was OK, I suppose.

Nowadays I understand.
‘Race-conscious’ is black-speak for ‘racist.’

I enjoy sports but I don't watch ESPN anymore.

Their 24/7 agenda to preserve racism is part of it.

Also got tired of their cheesy analysis.

And to "Boomer" Berman, for God's, sakes take a crap before you go on the air and quit staining the Valsalva Maneuver when you grunt out your brain farts.

I am waiting, breathlessly, for Mr Parker’s analysis of how the black QB of Notre Dame got dissed by that racist white, almost KKK QB of Alabama last night.

You might want to selectively share that info. You might pick up a few votes from some low-information voters that think you are that Rob Parker.

Jackass fool race-baiting hater. As a father of two interracial children he pisses me off and I wish he were in front of me now - I’d have a few choice words for his ilk.

"Community"? How frickin' RACIST can you get Parker?


Reminds me of a local news story I saw about two days ago. A store owner was shot and killed after trying to chase down a robber in the street. The background of the video during the report had a hand-written sign in his store window that said:

"Black owned

Black operated"

The sign was merely in the background and had no part in the story. But it caused me to take notice for sure.

I'm pretty sure there is a "community" where these sorts of things are discussed and where race is still a primary focal issue.

To me, it's simply "ok" by today's standards to focus on race so long as you are a member of a protected class.

Come back to the reservation, RGIII. Your black brothers like Parker will welcome you with open arms.

It’s a sign of insecurity that these people won’t let Robert Griffin be himself.

Parker wouldn’t know a real man if one came up and slapped him in the face. He thinks a man is a large child with gold teeth, out of wedlock children and the vocabulary of a third grade dropout.
