from Yahoo piece on this:

Nobody will ever mistake ESPN's "First Take" show with anything remotely resembling insightful, important, or accurate journalism. The trainwreck bookmarked by Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith has adopted the slogan "Embrace Debate" to put a nice little hat on the fact that the show is actually the kind of dreck that makes the worst political commentary programs look like great television. As a result, it's tough to come on that show and actually be an embarrassment.

Frequent ESPN talking head Rob Parker, however, went out of his way to do so when the subject of Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III came up on Thursday morning.

Since I've heard this on every sports talk radio show I heard in the last 24 hours I can only assume this has become "a big deal". I will be interested to see if he loses his job or just gets a 3 day paid vacation.

Truly some of the stupidest, most racially divisive comments I've heard.

Or poached away by another station to host his own show.

Is anyone surprised by this? It is sad but it was only a matter of time.

It really takes something to be the stupidest person in the room when the other people are Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith.
 
2012-12-14 08:36:44 AM
He's black and dissed a black guy. He "might" get fired because he's a no talent douche to begin with, but if he was white he would have already been fired, issued a forced apology, and had his house burned down by angry mobs.

Wasnt he fired from from his Detroit job for being a moron?
 
2012-12-14 08:39:49 AM
I'm surprised Rob Parker didn't say "poo-poo" a few times during his vile racist comments. Instead of using a synonym for the word "dismiss", this supposedly educated man repeatedly uses the word that a three year old uses for the word "shiat". He will call someone a poopy head sooner or later on the air.

Possibly, haven't seen much of his "work" but it wouldn't surprise me

Just throwing this out there, might RG3 be conservative because he was raised in a military family? Is that what he is trying to unfoundedly say through the most idiotic means? Cornball?

Add ESPN analyst to the list of jobs I think I could do better than "professionals," which already includes NFL commissioner.
 
2012-12-14 08:42:10 AM
MLKJr would be so proud.I wish video had shown all of S.A.S.'s response. Questioning people's blackness is one of the things which holds the members of the race back from a very early age.

I want to know what he means by 'down with the cause'? I'm white. You probably figured that out already.

Is he saying RG3 isn't really black because he didn't grow up poor, in a single mother household in a city and didn't have to deal with discrimination and violence and drugs and overcome all those obstacles a lot of other african american athletes had to overcome to make it to NFL?

I know RG3 was in a military family, both his parents army sergeants. I've never heard of him getting in any kind of trouble or controversy.

BISO

Unfortunately if you are too articulate, there will be a some black people who question your blackness. The worst part about those racists is that they don't realize they are promoting old southern white stereotypes. "Well if you don't have any angry black man in you, you can't be black". Fark those people. I have relatives that are like this and I'm pretty sure Robert Griffin did as well... before he started getting paid in the NFL that is.

It's First Take. Like Patrice O'Neil says about Tracy Morgan controversy, they are so used to saying frivolous shiat....until they say frivolous shiat about the people who support them.

I say "mission accomplished" for him.

SlothB77: I want to know what he means by 'down with the cause'?


It doesn't mean anything. If you read the transcript you can see that he was stammering on spouting nonsense. Maybe he was uncomfortable with what he was saying, maybe he was just riffing, maybe he is a complete moron. I don't know what the answer is but the whole situation is embarrassing. God forbid the guy doesn't talk about his personal politics and family life.

Local sports talk radio guys (97.5 - Houston) were talking about "Down for the Cause" and took a few callers who all seemed to agree on a base level that blacks should keep to/marry/accompany other blacks, to keep the "advancement" of the race going aka "the cause"

How stupid.

RGIII's next touchdown dance should be a shuck and jive, just to prove he isn't a "cornball brother". Idiot.
 
2012-12-14 09:19:35 AM
Apparently Parker got fired from his job in Detroit for making up a story about Kirk Cousins fighting a hockey player (Cousins was in church at the time it supposedly happened). So maybe he's trying to make up for that by harassing the starter for the team Cousins now plays for.

Or maybe the entire point of First Take is to say obnoxious, stupid sh*t in order to get the entire internet up in a tizzy of "OMG he didn't just say that," and increase ratings.
 
2012-12-14 09:20:38 AM
I guarantee you every Black Racist and their pansy-ass White Guilt Liberal suck-ups will be spinning and defending this Black Racist Rob Parker....Guarantee it

ESPN fired Rush Limbaugh for a lot less. ESPN needs to fire Parker, immediately. And take that vile idiot Stephen A Smith with him, too

Ooops I better stop acting "white"

Gunny Highway: It doesn't mean anything.


i forgot to end my comment by saying 'or is he just being a dumbass.'

It kinda doesn't mean anything.

But it reminds me of something said almost six years ago now:

January 31st, 2007. Reaction to Joe Biden's 'he's articulate and bright and clean quote'

CNN's Paula Zahn interviewed Stephen A. Smith, an analyst from both Philadelphia and ESPN and Debbie Schlussel, conservative columnist. Paula Zahn said, Jesse Jackson came out today. He says, I personally don't think that Biden's a racist but it certainly raises questions by the kind of tone and the language he used.
SCHLUSSEL: It's interesting how everybody's willing to forgive him and say he's not bigoted, but yet when Rush Limbaugh, for example, says something on ESPN that was not racist about Donovan McNabb, he's a racist and he's kicked off ESPN, and he's not running for president.
SMITH: I don't think he's getting a free pass. It's the difference between being a racist and being racially insensitive. When you talk about somebody being a racist, as a black man, I've seen individuals and I could point to a lot of things considerably more harsher than what we heard or what you may have witnessed from Joseph Biden that would fall under the category of being a racist. You can be racially insensitive because it comes from ignorance as well. That doesn't necessarily make you a racist so that's where I draw the line.
RUSH: Well, Stephen A. Smith makes Debbie Schlussel's point. Biden is a liberal, he's down for the struggle, and so he's not a racist. He was just racially insensitive. Max Kellerman, Fox News Channel, used to work at ESPN, was on Hannity & Colmes back on March 29th of 2004. You realize this McNabb episode was in September-October of 2003? We're into 2007 now and the Philadelphia papers are still writing about it as though it happened yesterday. Anyway, Max Kellerman said this about the whole incident at ESPN involving me and McNabb.
KELLERMAN: A lot of other people could have said exactly what Rush said, what he said I found kind of interesting, actually. But the real reason they reacted to him that way, the liberal media, if you will, is because they know Rush ain't down for the struggle, so he's not allowed to say that.

/ 2007. Max Kellerman, ESPN. He says 'down for the struggle'.
2012. Rob Parker, ESPN. 'Down for the cause'.
