These were all topics an edition of ESPN’s “First Take” that concerned former Baylor QB and Washington Redskins star Robert Griffin III.
When asked about what RG3 had to say about being an African American quarterback, ESPN panelist Rob Parker, an African American himself, (Twitter handle @RobParkerESPN) had this to say. Transcriptions came from Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post.

I guess someone beat me by a few seconds so mods feel free to delete
He’s Racist, plain and simple!
reckun he drew short straw.. they’re just trying to steal viewers away from tonight’s bungals eaglets on the nfl network.. it’s cut throat out there on cable these days.
Did he actually say “corneball”, or another word?
Not enough of a thug for some, apparently.
What's wrong with RG3?
Please pardon my ignorance of curren African-American slang, but does ‘cornball brother’ mean the same as calling RG3 an “uncle Tom” or “Oreo”? It does not sound complementary to me.
He bees jealous-—RG3 just ain’t tribal enough ay? Looks like Cornball got a mighty successful career in the making.
He doesn’t walk around with his pants around his knees and his dirty drawers hanging out. He can’t be down with the cause if he’s well spoken and intelligent. I would love to hear what this guy says about Obama. At least RG3 is a great athlete.
Think more like candy corn.
candy corn doesn’t mean anything to me. I never cared for it when I was a kid. too sweet
“What’s wrong with RG3?”
Clean, bright, atriculate, mainstream.
Unlike my typing
Let the Bread and Circus Crowd of Obamatons debate this crap as Fedzilla moves towards collapse and States like Michigan get their perveribal $hi+ together. Keep the Stupid voters in a fog, lets get somethings done at the State Level. And in my heart I think Obee wants to destroy these sports too, see the contracts make the rich, independent and afterwards small businessmen often succesful that pass their wealth along to their kids. Can’t have that in Obee’s World of Positive Liberties by the 2nd Constitution is he inacting without a document, these Comrades are not playing nice and won’t want to have what they earned redistributed and some are too big, they ain’t gonna like it...
I thought it sort of referred to being nappy- or nubbly-headed, like a ‘real’ black man, only blond or yellow in practice, the way a cornball would look.
Though I guess I don’t really give a fig. These guys are openly racist now and are ever nearer to declaring open war on whites.
No Ebonics, therefore not a real brother.
Well, he has a white fiancee and horror of horrors he might be a Republican.
I have no idea what “cornball brother” means, but it obviously wasn’t intended to be a compliment.
You mean RG3 is anti slavery, as in a non Dem plantation person of color?
What will they think of next?
