Pushes away from his people, huh?
He is a mature genuine-adult male rather than a rapper-gangster with pants hanging halfway to his knees. ‘bout damn time someone shows some maturity.
I read a great article on him (on espn.com interestingly) about how his graduate work at Baylor included outreach to the poor areas of Waco. While this rich black liberal is fulminating about RGIII’s lack of race hustler rhetoric, RGIII is actually working to improve the lives of black people.
“Brother” Parker doesn’t know what to make of RG III. He was raised by an intact family; both of his parents were career NCOs in the. US Army who demanded excellence from their children and held them accountable. One of the guys who works on my team is also retired Army (lives in Copperas Cove) and knows the Griffins slightly. Describes them as an outstanding family and says all of the kids are cut from the same cloth as RG III, in terms of work ethic, values and dedication to academics.
If you want proof that America is becoming a post-racial society, the proof isn’t in the White House, or with the usual crop of so-called black leaders and pundits. They can’t resist the temptation to inject race in everything because it suits their agenda. Meanwhile, men like Tim Scott and Robert Griffin III transcend race by using their God-given talents to reach the pinnacle of their professions, while refusing to put themselves in any sort of racial box.
And that scares liberals like Parker to death, because it means more African-Americans who think for themselves and refuse to remain trapped on the Democratic plantation.
C’mon now! If the black community begins to value maturity, it won’t be long before they stop voting Democrat! Can’t have that!
