Rob Parker, the commentator who created controversy when he questioned whether Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is a “cornball brother” because he has a white fiancee, has been fired by ESPN.
Rob Parker was fired for being too honest. He pulled back the curtain and exposed some of the racist views that are widely held in the black community. We certainly can’t have any of that!
I talked to some people down in Washington, D.C. … but my question, which is just a straight, honest question, is he a brother or is he a cornball brother? …
Well, he’s not really. Okay, he’s black, he does his thing, but he’s not really down with the cause. He’s not one of us. He’s kind of black, but he’s not really like the guy you really want to hang out with because he’s off to something else … That’s just all I want to find out about him. I don’t know because I keep hearing these things. We all know he has a white fiancee and there’s talk about that he’s a Republican, which there’s no information at all. I’m just trying to dig deeper into why he has an issue.
This is post-racial America, where only white people can be racists.
