“I want to find out about him. 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 at all [about that],” Parker said. “I’m just trying to dig deeper as to why he has an issue."
So RGIII having a white fiancee and being Republican = "he has an issue"?During the Thursday edition of the ESPN show First Take, analyst Rob Parker injected racial issues into the game as he took a bitter swipe at Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, criticizing him for being engaged to a white woman and possibly being one of those evil, nasty Republicans.
“Is he a brother or a cornball brother?” Parker said. “He’s not really one of us. He’s kind of black, but he’s not really, like, the guy you want to hang out with.”
Parker’s ignorant rant came in response to statements made by Griffin in recent days about how he does not wish to be defined solely by his race. On Wednesday at a news conference, the quarterback said he was aware of the attention being focused on him because he is black but that he wanted to be more than just a great black QB.
Sigh, just another race-baiting ignorant fool with a microphone.
