    Rob Parker should be ashamed of himself. I own a small business, and I am black. However, I don't want to be identified as such (a black owned business). "Racing" someone that way is a suggestion that he/she is limited primarily because of his/her race.

    This is yet another dumb comment spoken by Rob Parker. How this continues to get a job in this business is beyond me.

    Agreed, I'm successful as well and often get told that I am not black or black enough. :) Ignorance.

    I like Griffin as a person, but hope he fails as a Redskin. :)

    This is also the second time...actress earlier before election...where a black individual was called out for maybe being Republican. I'm not black so I don't know if that is a true stigma but in these individuals tax bracket I'd say maybe they are making choices about their money too. Smart if you ask me...as in weighing what is best for each individual.

    The guy should be fired

    It's ignorant comments like these that perpetuate racism. It's asking to be looked at and treated differently.

    Hy does anyone watch espn?

    The entire network is a joke.

    They have one real journalist left in the entire network and that's mortensen and he is just a tv guy now anyway.

    They offer nothing.

    Yup. Rob Parker could be categorized as a racist himself. What an ignorant human being.

    Wow. Just wow.


    I guess in Rob Parker's mind all Black people should behave in the exact same stereotypical 'black' way.

    It's sad because he's definitely not the only person who thinks like this, but Parker's comments show just out of touch he is.

    RGIII acts like a what he is... a young NFL player out of Baylor.

    I guess I'm showing that I don't watch much ESPN or go to sites where his writings are published (is he a journalist?), but I have never heard of Rob Parker until now.

    If his goal was a Skip Bayless/Stephen A. Smith style career, he has made a good first step.

    The actress is Stacey Dash and she was a supporter of Romney and got highly criticized by black people on Twitter because of it. I don't know why some people think that all black people should act the same?

    If Michael Jordan is simply known as the greatest basketball player ever,
    and Tiger Woods as one of the all time golfing greats,
    what's wrong with RG3 wanting to be known as an elite (if not an all-time great) QB - PERIOD?

    Yeah - that was a Captain Obvious comment. :eek::

    "Lovin white dudes who call me white and then try to hate, when I wasn't white enough to use your pool when I was 8" Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino

    RG III is who he is a good god fearing, country loving, son of a U.S. Army Vet.....His outlook on life was a lot broader then most, so yeah he gonna be different and I am glad for him....atleast he doesn't use it as an excuse to be a donkey hind parts like Kobe Bryant does.

    I think that means he wants him with bling bling, a big posse, tons of female groupies, blowing money constantly at the strip clubs or as it was referred to "making it rain" and buying lots of expensive cars he really cant afford...

    Nope. ESPN probably even encouraged it...they must be loving it, I'm sure the suits were out there after the show like "Good show Rob! That's what we want to see!"

    ESPN is unstoppable and so is First Take

    Rob Parker has been suspended by ESPN "until further notice." ESPN says "we are conducting a full review."
