ESPN's Rob Parker wonders if RGIII is 'not one of us' - SBNation.com

That alone should get him fired. Hell, they've fired people for saying lesser things, and the fact that Stephen A. Smith came behind him and said the following says it all....

"I'm uncomfortable with where we just went. RGIII, the ethnicity, the color of his fiance is none of our business, it's irrelevant, he can live his life any way he chooses... I don't judge someone's blackness based on those types of things."


I'll be disappointed severely if ESPN allows this man to retain his job after this crap.

Firstdown-I'm guessing you're trying to be funny

Chico-Skip should have left it alone

NC-Not sure what's going to happen, but from what I've heard just talking to some friends there....people are really. really pissed. Stephen A. (among others) was livid after the show

I'd be surprised if he's fired though

Well Stephen A. Smith still has a job, so don't get your hopes up about some kind of action.

ESPN and the race card go together like PB & J. It never ends.

When a white person tries to "keep it real", it's viewed as racism nearly every time and they are at a podium 24 hours later making a press conference apology.

Not to wax on wheter it's right or wrong, that's the way I see it and it just feels like new-age racism-lite. I could care less what race your girlfriend is, what kind of car you drive, or your political affiliation; it's all about how decent you are as a person and how well you represent the team and organization. I for one am pretty proud to own an RG3 jersey as he seems to be just a generally good person (also doesn't hurt that he is an amazing athlete on the field also )

I mean, I dont know how to respond to that comment other than "you must be kidding me, right", but Skip best reponse is "what about the braids?"

Im glad Stephen A was pissed, he should be...that is the proper response

re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

You guys need to watch it if you want to comment on this issue. You are only getting bits and pieces from the articles posted, just like everyone on First Take not knowin the context or even understanding of the meaning of what RG III was even saying.

That was one of the worst all around segements of that show I have ever seen ( know that I have a very small sampling of first take ). That took something that was not a big deal in RG III presser and made it into something completely off base of what the guys was saying.

It was pretty infruriated by what they were implying the whole show.

From his wikipedia page profile:

Quote:
Rob Parker (born January 18, 1964) is an American sports columnist and race relations expert for ESPNNewYork.com and ClickOnDetroit.com.
The man's an expert. He knows what he's talking about.

I'm with you on Smith. I cannot stand listening to him talk about anything. He can't make a point without raising his voice and yelling. He often times makes good points, but it stresses me out to listen to him talk. First take is a joke of a show. I dont bother with ESPN anymore now that TWC has the NFL network

Fortunately RGIII is too bright to let it get to him.

Woah don't put words in my mouth. There is no "acceptable" racism. I think the word traditional speaks for itself. We've had a problem with racism in this country in the past, in this world really, and that racism in its general form is what I am talking about.
