Posted on 12/13/2012 6:53:28 PM PST by Beave Meister
Robert Griffin III is arguably the most popular man in Washington right now. The Redskins spectacular rookie quarterback has been winning games, fans, and headlines due to his play this season. Today, he was on the front page of the Washington Post for the third time in a week and a half.
Under increasing media scrutiny, Griffin has been clear he does not want to be defined by his race. In a news conference yesterday cited in USA Today, Griffin, an African-American, said, For me, you dont ever want to be defined by the color of your skin. You want to be defined by your work ethic, the person that you are, your character, your personality. Thats what Ive tried to go out and do. He continued, I am an African-American in America. That will never change. But I dont have to be defined by that.
But columnist and ESPN analyst Rob Parker evidently thinks otherwise. On the networks First Take show this morning, Parker said, my question, which is just a straight honest question, is [Griffin] a brother, or is he a cornball brother?

Looks like the mau-mauing of RGIII has officially begun.
I knew this was going to happen sooner or later. It’s hard to believe, but there was a time when even Michael Jordan took flack from some quarters for not sufficiently hatin’ on Whitey.
For me, you dont ever want to be defined by the color of your skin. You want to be defined by your work ethic, the person that you are, your character, your personality. Thats what Ive tried to go out and do.
That used to be exactly what defined what it was to be an American. It wasn't where your family came from. We don't have caste systems. It was what you became as an individual with the freedom you have.
Black Americans are not allowed to think for themselves
You better watch those Eagles insults. It’s not like we released our most popular player who was runner up Man of the Year for a dog murdering felon...
What’s striking to me is that Parker not only wants to stay on the plantation himself, but drag others with him.
Ever since Rush got railroaded out of becoming part owner of an NFL team, I’ve been watching and listening more closely at how these ‘reporters’ act and talk.
Incredible racism in sportscasting. It’s obvious and seemingly endless, not to mention shameful.
RG3 is from a military family, which counts as another strike against him for the commie loving sports media.
Didn't know this, thanks for posting that. All I know is, he's an exciting player to watch. For a rookie he's damn' good and there's no doubt he's going to make a big mark in the NFL. Guessing by his education, once he's done on the field he's destined for really good things off the field too, and I say good for him!
And we’re about to release that dog murdering felon.
More proof that Affirmative Action is a failure= Rob Parker.
Cedric “Cornball” Maxwell ?
Yup. ESPN worships Buttcrack odumbo. He’s in almost every sports and non-sports story. Now who could ever forget his new spelling of “Syracuse” on the NCAA bracket show while Andy Katz was drooling all over him...
LOL!! I believe that was “Cornbread Maxwell”
“You dont go to BAYLOR if you are a communist. You go to UT”
or Texas A&M. My cuz graduated from T A&M and his GF is from Baylor. Libs aren’t exactly popular there as they told me. And yes, he went nuts when Manziel won the Heisman.
keep it real. check out "how to be gangster"
RGIII also makes the sign of the cross after every touchdown they make.
Funny how I haven’t heard that become an issue. Yet.
I had a lot of respect for RGIII up until now. Now I’m a big fan. It’s amazing how far things have degraded in our culture. An educated, enormously talented and responsible young black man basically quotes Martin Luther King on aspiring to be judged on his character, and a black sports “commentator” with a national microphone calls him degrading names. Rob Parker is an absolute disgrace and should be fired by ESPN. I can certainly see why Rob Parker wouldn’t want to be judged on the content of his character.
Been a big fan since the night I saw him win the Heisman. Superman indeed.
