That Insane Rob Parker-RGIII Video Everyone’s Talking About

Just parking this here in case you hadn’t seen it (via Awful Announcing, SB Nation, USA TODAY Sports and pretty much everywhere by now).

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    I’m not sure what exactly the “cause” is, but I’m pretty sure RGIII does a lot more good than bad for whatever misguided, negative perceptions there may be of black athletes. And Stephen A’s reaction at the end is probably the best part.

    Why is this even being questioned? He’s not a real brother? Why? What defines a brother? I guess Rob Parker is mad that RGIII is black and is actually good at a position black people aren’t supposed to exceed at? Jesus Christ.

    Does this mean that Ras Trent is now a brutha cause he has dreads?

    I am not familiar with the term cornball brother and refuse to google to learn its meaning.

    Oh god that was terrible. To be fair he was on a show with Stephen A and Skip, and may have been trying to step up his “foot in mouth” game.

    Yeah, Robby’s comments aren’t racist, separatist, or segregationist in nature at all.

    I usually don’t react to this stuff, but I’m getting fired up because he’s attacking and questioning my franchise quarterback (who couldn’t act more professional or politically-correct). When will society realize that skin color (like gender, disabilities, weight, etc) should not change a person’s goals or how they are accepted in society?

    Stephen A is right; this is the kind of crap that keeps pulling society and culture back. We have to move beyond.

    And to lower myself to Parker’s level: the U.S. Census claims whites will be a minority by 2042. I wonder what Parker is going to do for a job then?

    Ugh. Daytime ESPN. Thank God I have a job.

    The fake provacative arguing makes WWE look convincing.

    If you say something that renders Skip Bayless nearly speechless and Stephen A. “uncomfortable” you know you said some stupid shit.

    Whatever. I suggest you all check out Rob Parker’s wiki page which has been hilariously updated already. Sample: “Currently Parker serves as a professional race assessor specializing in “Blackness” assessments for ESPN.” and “Rob “Don’t Call Me Cornball” Parker (born January 18, 1964) is an American sports “columnist”

    Does anyone else think Skip asking “What do RGIII’s braids say to you” is the most absurd part

    If you are in a discussion and Stephen A is the voice of reason then you should worried…very worried.

    I hope that this continues to get attention, he needs to be fired. Both him and the producers for ESPN that knowingly aired it and rebroadcasted it later that evening as “the best of…”.

    First Take should be on E.
