Oh ESPN (RGIII segment)

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...es-not-really/

Quote:
My question is, and its just a straight, honest question: Is he a brother, or is he a cornball brother, Parker said. Hes not really. Hes black, he does his thing, but hes not really down with the cause. Hes not one of us. Hes kind of black, but hes not really like the kind of guy you really want to hang out with.
I know ESPN is filled with idiots and they run some really moronic segments, but this......this has to be some dimwitted joke by them right?

How the **** is this worthy of air time?

Good god

Typical Rob Parker. I cringe whenever he surfaces on First Take. Kind of the same way I cringe whenever William C. Rhoden graces the set of Sports Reporters.

I'll admit it, I laughed when he said "cornball brother". What the hell does that even mean? He's questioning his "blackness" because he has a white fiance and might be Republican? Hopefully this was this clown's last segment on ESPN.

Is there a full video of this somewhere? I haven't been on Youtube in a while but I don't see the "most recently uploaded" option anymore and don't feel like going through the pages. It looked like it was just about to get good when Stephen A Smith joined in.

Reverse racism at it's finest, guy's a moron, so if I had braids would that make me a "brother" even though I'm white as snow? Spare me.

It's not reverse racism, it's plain old racism.

If this was a white guy commenting on a player being too black, he'd have been escorted right off the set.

I don't know why anyone is surprised. This is exactly the type of drivel that the talking heads ESPN employs to do First Take spew on a daily basis. First Take might be the single worst show on television. Stephen A. Smith has yet to realize that speaking in an authoritative tone cannot make up for the actual words that come out of his mouth lacking any type of substance or credibility. Skip Bayless is on the show for the sole purpose of arguing with Smith over a topic neither has any clue about and for his trademark wild accusations. I loved when Mark Cuban called out Bayless for his incredibly inaccurate opinions and came on the show to absolutely thrash him in a debate. The type of crap that you hear on First Take is exactly what ESPN wants from it. Headlines like this one increase traffic to the ESPN site and more people will tune in to the channel wanting to see what what said. ESPN employs more than a few complete airheads, but Rob Parker really does take the cake. He is one of the least knowledgeable people to ever appear on cable television.

Wonder what Reischea Canidate (Former host of First Take) and current ESPN/ESPN news anchor was thinking when she heard those comments today

Considering her husband is white ,, By Parker's viewpoint she isn't really black

ESPN has been a joke since like 2006 and First Take has been the biggest joke on their network since it stopped being Cold Pizza and basically became the Skip Bayless show.

Bayless is an imbecile who makes outlandish statements for the purposes of trolling and getting headlines. It was amazing when Cuban tore him apart.

I'll admit though, Stephen A. can be hilarious at times like when he's ripping NBA players like Kwame Brown, Rasho Nesterovich, etc.

Most definitely.

And Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would probably hold riots and protests outside Bristol.

Thing is Parker is a moron and well-known jackass but a similar tone that black athletes need to "represent" blackness in a certain way was taken by quite a few other talking heads on the Tiger Woods and Donovan McNabb issues. So you can't solely dismiss it as simply Parker being Parker.
