ESPN commentator Rob Parker really blew up RG3's spot, intended or not. On Thursday’s episode of First Take, Parker walked the interracial line within blackness and putting RG3 out there big time.
Parker ranted about getting to know Griffin before deeming him worthy of being 'down.'
Was there a need to really blow the guy up on national television and also offended fellow journalist Stephen A. Smith .
“My question is, and it’s just a straight, honest question: Is he a brother, or is he a cornball brother,” Parker said.
“He’s not really. 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 kind of guy you really want to hang out with.”
“I want to find about him,” Parker said. “I don’t know because I keep hearing these things. We all know he has a white fiancee. Then there was all this talk about he’s a Republican, which there’s no information at all.
