  • I think Rob Parker has the right to express himself.. What the heck is this country come to?? There reporters people and are we so soft in the brain now that we are afraid of offending a guy who is suppose to be the savior of some sports team. They let Parker go for one reason because there afraid of the backlash that some other blacks might cause trouble for the network. What a shame that people have lost there spines to say whats on there mind. Its not like he made threats against the guy. Besides who the heck cares what Parker says anyway. Its got to the point if you open your mouth and say boo your called a hater a biggot a terroist or a nut job. Its like were getting to be good little puppets who have learned to shut up and march to Washingtons lock step. ITS CALLED SPORTS NOT REAL LIFE. We should all cool it and get to the real problems this country has brought on itself.
