Well, we all know how intolerant the left is to the ethnic and communities across america who don't vote for them, but is this crossing a line?

Rob Parker calls RG3 a 'cornball brother,' says he's 'not one of us'

It was quite refreshing to read some quotes from Robert Griffin III recently in which he said he didn't want to be defined by his race, particularly as it applied to being an African-American quarterback.

"I am an African-American in America," Griffin told Jim Corbett of USA Today. "That will never change. But I don't have to be defined by that.... We always try to find similarities in life, no matter what it is so they're always going to try to put you in a box with other African-American quarterbacks --[Michael] Vick,[Cam] Newton, Randall Cunningham, Warren Moon. Warren Moon and Doug Williams really didn't run that much. That's the negative stereotype when it comes to African-American quarterbacks, that most of us just run. Those guys threw it around. I like to think I can throw it around a little bit."

That is high-minded stuff for a 22-year-old, even one who's seen as much of the spotlight as RG3 has. It is not uncommon to have a conversation about young African-American quarterbacks take a quick turn into Stupid Subliminal Comparison Land.

Which is why it's particularly embarrassing to hear Rob Parker of ESPN bloviate on First Take that Griffin might be a "cornball brother" and "not one of us."

"My question, which is just a straight honest question: is he a brother, or is he a cornball brother?" Parker asked to much confusion among the show's other participants. "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.

"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."

Parker's comments were so ridiculous that it actually made Stephen A. Smith "uncomfortable with where we went."

It should -- perhaps the worst part of all of this is that Parker said he wanted to "know more" about RG3.

"I want to find about him," Parker said. "I don't know because I keep hearing these things. We all know he has a white fiancee. Then there was all this talk about he's a Republican, which there's no information at all. I'm just trying to dig deeper into 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 wondered about Tiger Woods."

Perhaps finding out more about Griffin would be something smart to do before hopping on national television and attempting to pass judgment on the level or degree to which the Redskins quarterback represents his race.

Hmmm, how do you figure RG3 is conservative?
Maybe your heading should read "One Democrat hates RG3 because he can't quite label him. Then another democrat totally disagrees with the first democrat."

First off, RG3 is NOT a Republican! Where in God's name do you get this crap? The article is complete bs from a Republican engaging in wishful thinking. RG3 is much too intelligent to be a Republican! History will vindicate this remark.

Then why did rob parker say this?

"I want to find about him," Parker said. "I don't know because I keep hearing these things. We all know he has a white fiancee. Then there was all this talk about he's a Republican, which there's no information at all. I'm just trying to dig deeper into 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 wondered about Tiger Woods."

----The point is do you think minorities who are republican are lesser people, you're behavior suggests so and that is racism

Actually buddy, I think the intelligent ones are Republicans. Some people who call themselves "Democrats" didn't even know who Barack OBama was running against. They said things like "Oh I'm voting for OBama because he's cooler." So history will hopefully vindicate uninformed people like you. Do your homework dumbass.

RG3 is a conservative? When did he ever say he was a conservative? I've watched almost every single interview he has ever done. Not once did he say he was a republican.

So what if he is a conservative or a republican, that's his business and only his business. There is no law that says he has to be a mindless liberal Democrat just because he's black.

In other words, so what if conservatives are telling the truth or lying when they claim RG3 as one of their own?

RG3 is a conservative. He came from a military backround with a father and mother who campained for Gov. Perry in Texas. He is not brainwashed by the democratic party who fathered the KKK, and stood against Lincoln and freeing the slaves and faught all civil rights legislation. Please learn your history on the dems. African American votes were buoght by LBJ with welfare and he said and I quote "Ill have these N**gers voting democrat for teh next 200 years". Its was all politics not caring fro anyone. As eveidnet by the inner citties who keep voting democrat to help them yet stay poor inner citties.

Our president comes from black liberation theology - every other black celebrity looks like a Republican compared to him.

thanks for the history update, it has always shocked me how racist the left has always been when they don't think a minority is listening, watercooler jokes by the left are almost always racist, their is a reason they like to listen to minority comics make racial jokes

Robert Parker is an idiot when it comes to politics, and like most of his illegitimate bros was raised on welfare and food stamps paid for by white tax payers.

With his income being a liberal would be brainless. You are obviously
liberal and black. Probably raised on welfare ,stamps and a few other gov programs. He probably feels like it's not his job to support you. Your parents had you let them pay for you. I feel the same way.

Who's fault is that ? As long as we keep feeding them they'll keep multiplying. Currently 75 % of all black babies are born to single mothers,and white tax payers pick up the tab. The black population in
the US is less than 14%, but they comitt 79% of all homicides.
Ever wonder why they vote Democrat ??

What makes you think RG3 wants to be over taxed ,and have to pay more money to support losers. I could care less,but I doubt he is a Democrat, and I doubt you pay any taxes or know anything about the
Democrat party.
