Rob Parker Says Criminally Stupid Things About Robert Griffin III on ESPN’s ‘First Take’

by 7 years ago

The “First Take” … personality … I guess, decided to say some really stupid things about Washington Redskins star quarterback Robert Griffin III. To wit:

I've talked to some people in Washington, D.C. Some people in [Griffin's] press conferences. Some people I've known for a long time. My question, which is just a straight, honest question, is … is he a 'brother,' or is he a cornball 'brother?' He's not really … he's black, but he's not really down with the cause. He's not one of us. He's kind of black, but he's not really like the guy you'd want to hang out with. I just want to find out about him. I don't know, because I keep hearing these things. He has a white fiancé, people talking about that he's a Republican … there's no information at all. I'm just trying to dig deeper into why he has an issue. Tiger Woods was like, 'I have black skin, but don't call me black.' People wondered about Tiger Woods early on — about him.”

Griffin III won’t have to look far for someone with whom to commiserate. Parker was forced to publically apologize to noted good-deed-doer Kirk Cousins for erroneously implicating him in a fight on Michigan State’s campus.
