ESPN's Rob Parker tells the panel that RG3 might be a Cornball Brother






That is just wow!! He's racist against blacks and whites at the same time.. He's saying that Robert Griffin is not "black enough" because he has a white fiance and is republican.

I guess it is really bad to have a white fiance...

Jimmy the Greek would be proud...





And suspended..? If his skin was even one shade lighter, he would have been fired on the spot.


Weak sauce ESPN...

Yeah, that's as I suspected.

corn ball::

One who tries to be cool, but doesn't see just how uncool he really is... In fact it would be pretty easy to take what this person is doing / wearing and turn it into something cool with the right person involved.

"If you wear an authentic jersey, but also wear the pants to match and tuck the shirt inside - you would be a cornball."

- courtesy of urban dictionary

i don't see anything racist calling somebody a cornball. i think almost everybody has been a cornball at least once in their life, according to this definition.

I watched that segment live when it aired and imo the comments sound way worst out of context. The whole topic was about if RGIII was distancing himself from the black community because of recent comments he had made about not wanting to be labeled a "black quarterback." All Rob did was say what people in the Barber Shops he went to in DC were saying about RGIII and he was saying that a lot of them questioned his "blackness."

If it would be out of context ESPN wouldn't have suspended him
