ESPN Contributor Rips Robert Griffin III For Acting Too White… Possibly Being a Republican

Sports used to be so much better without the liberal BS.

Robert Griffin III’s girlfriend Rebecca Liddicoat –

ESPN panelist Rob Parker attacked Redskin’s QB Robert Griffin III for being too white, having a white girlfriend, and possibly being a Republican.
Sports Day DFW reported, via Free Republic:

Braids. A white fiancée. Being African American.

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.

‘But time and time we keep hearing this, so it just makes me wonder deeper about him,’ Parker said. ‘And I’ve talked to some people down in Washington D.C., friends of mine, who are around and at some of the press conferences, people I’ve known for a long time. But my question, which is just a straight honest question. Is he a brother, or is he a cornball brother?’

He continued with, ‘Well, [that] he’s black, he kind of does his thing, but he’s not really down with the cause, he’s not one of us,’ Parker explained. ‘He’s kind of black, but he’s not really the guy you’d really want to hang out with, because he’s off to do something else.’

And then when he was asked why, he answered with this.

‘Well, because I want to find out about him,’ Parker said. ‘I don’t know, because I keep hearing these things. We all know he has a white fiancée. There was all this talk about he’s a Republican, which, there’s no information [about that] at all. I’m just trying to dig deeper as to why he has an issue. Because we did find out with Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods was like I’ve got black skin but don’t call me black. So people got to wondering about Tiger Woods early on.’

    Color and what you have to be when you are that color are all that matter. Parker is obviously a racist. and stupid.

  • ★FALCON★

    Less accomplished blacks are determined to keep every blacks on the plantation and never let anyone prove that it’s the character of the man and not the color of the skin.

    And the head race-baiter in the White House is setting that poor example. And he’s leading from behind.

    Yes Parker is a racist but maybe he is also jealous too. Heisman trophy, pro qb, big bucks and RG3’s girlfriend is probably as intelligent as she is beautiful.
    What is with all these socialist blacks when someone of their race refuses to stay on the plantation they get all mean on the person who decided to be free from all the “victim” mindset garbage they wallow in daily.


    I understand now. Being black is not about color, ethnicity, or culture. Black is being a Communist victim person who cannot achieve without government aid. That is what this sportscaster has taught me today.

    Good god that Rebecca is HOT! Now, what did that idiot say?

  • platypus

    I’ve been listening to this whining racist crap my whole life. I thought they would have gotten tired of sounding like idiots by now but I guess they just like being losers.

    No wonder they got all hot and bothered when Joe BiteMe said “put ’em all back in chains.” They thought he was suggesting a bondage party down at the bathhouse.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    I’m just trying to dig deeper as to why he has an issue.

    The only person with an issue is this Parker a-hole, who seems to feel that everyone that looks as he does somehow has to exhibit similar traits and preferences, otherwise there’s something terribly wrong with them.

    The really depressing aspect about his attitude is that it’s much too widely shared among those in his particular ethnic group.

  • donh

    He forgot to fault the ” Griffin the 3rd ” name…How WHITE…how country clubbish …REAL blacks change back to African names like Natumbe and Matobo….Its the pretty white wife that really ticks them off.

  • Luke

    Blacks need to marry other blacks. I dont like it when blacks marry white women. I think that black men need to marry black women.

    The blacks have bad families becasue the good black men marry the white women, leaving black women to the bad black men.

    Also, they produce black kids. This guys kids will be black–like Obama–and that will increase the black population and reduce the white population.

  • DecentAmerican

    Just curious to all the black readers out there, but does being black mean that you are not allowed to date white, and you are not permitted to think independently and be a Repub? Because I thought that the end of slavery, which the republicans helped fight to end while the democrats wanted to continue slavery, meant that you were now free to do what you want.

    I didn’t realize that you were still enslaved to do and think. So many good Repubs died to set you free, and yet now you want to be enslaved by Democrats. I don’t understand, pls explain why you like to be enslaved?

  • Patty

    Again, flood these racists will all we have and tell them to stop this ignorance and hate.

  • Highlander

    Troll alert on aisle 12 ….

  • Patty

    Find Rob Parker email address and flood it with a response. Let these people know how you feel about their RACIST COMMENTS.

  • Patty

    Any time we hear this sort of hate, do something and get your opinions out there without hate and make your comments nice but to the point.

    Black Conservative Political Action

    Racialist Writer Seeks to Sack RGIII, Fails

    [On a special on the Comcast SportsNet channel, RGIII acknowledged
    but downplayed the fact that there are fans who admire him for being
    a black quarterback. He told host Chick Hernandez:

    “I don’t play too much into the color game, because I don’t want to be
    the best African American quarterback, I want to be the best quarterback…
    Whoever I can go out every week and motivate to do better and to try to
    go after their dreams, I’m up for that.

    Supporting RGIII and his post-racial play, member of the Project 21 black
    leadership network are speaking out against how Rob Parker is trying to
    reduce D.C.’s football phenomenon to more racial terms.”

    Project 21 member Hughey P. Newsome said:

    “Parker’s comments are extremely
    disheartening, but they do reveal a truth.

    Parker, like so many others, feels that blacks cannot support anything remotely conservative — in this case, the Republican Party. His words reveal that so many can only see life through the lens of race, and that so many do not believe in the diversity of thought in the black community. These are not the ideals for which we fought during the civil rights movement. Worse yet, they are self-inflicted.”

    Demetrius Minor, another Project 21 member, added:

    Rob Parker’s arrogance and racial comments regarding Robert Griffith III continues to show how liberals invoke race at almost all times to elude from a substantive discussion. The fact that the legitimacy of RGIII’s skin tone is being discussed over his athletic ability is quite appalling and offensive. We will continue to condemn this rhetoric and press forward to a time where race is no longer used as a chip on the shoulder.

    And Project 21 member Archbishop Council
    Nedd II, an ardent Redskins fan, noted:

    Rob Parker needs a ticket to the Player
    Haters Ball from the old “Chappelle’s Show.”

    People such as Parker need to get over this crab pot mentality, where blacks seem to continually feel the need to drag down a black American who gains notoriety. The black community is the only group that does this. Remember when Jesse Jackson criticized got caught on a hit mic complaining about Barack Obama “talking down” to the black community?

    If an Italian-American does something of note, that’s when they are
    considered most Italian. When a Jewish person does something of
    note, that when they are most Jewish. But the black community
    seems to be a community of haters. When a black person gains
    some fame, the “community” quickly brands them a sellout.

    RGIII has the potential to be best quarterback the NFL has ever seen. RGIII
    is focused on his job and doing it well. RGIII is not to be faulted for that, but
    rather applauded.

    As for Rob Parker, he needs to stop being
    a hater and focus on his own career.”

    “….having a white girlfriend, and possibly being a Republican”


    The KKK used to hang black men for this same reason.
