Racism still exists because of the attitudes of people like Rob Parker.
Stephen A's comments after Parker's comments were spot on...and it's rare that I feel that way about Stephen A's comments.
Funny, when I heard about this I half expected the comments to be from Stephan A.
What a load of crap this all is. Fire this guy's worthless ass. No place for this crap anyplace, let alone in sports.

CNN has suspended Rob Parker.
The network put its host on ice pending further review after on-air remarks about RGIIIs race on Thursday.
This guy has a long history of being suspended and fired for being a moron. Why does anyone hire him?

"Pending further review."
What's there to review?
Parker's comments weren't subtle - you hear them and you either think they are appropriate (in which case, don't suspend him) or you think he is an idiot.
I'm surprised nobody on-air with him at the time just said "what the fuck?"
Just truly ignorant comments from someone that tried to call RGIII out for not "being down with the cause".
Chris Rock was right when he said the most racist people in the world are black people, because we hate black people too.
Wow, how does Rob Parker want him to act? What a douchebag slimeball.
My favorite part of the whole diatribe was when he said that RGIII was not black bc he was a Republican.
I would imagine that there are some on this board that would agree with that statement, if it was not surrounded by the rest of the nonsense that was said.
Who on this board do you imagine agreeing with that statement even sans the other nonsense? You seem to be imagining nonsense.
Not have a white fiance and not be Republican. He apparently believes blacks should not marry whites and blacks should not be Republican. The guy is a bigot. He is also a moron beyone that. He should at least have the commons sense to hide his bigotry. He has been fired several times before for being so stupid.
I wish ESPN would fire him, but the idiot, Parker, won't be fired because he is perfect for the show "First Take"... a show which I find unwatchable. The producers of the show want the hosts to say over the top nonsense.
"Judge him as but a man" William Seward...
Seward was defending a black man who had been sentenced to prison for a crime he did not commit. Abused and when he got out he killed a white person.
Seward's point was that if a white person at that time had been in the same boat he would have been likely found not guilty because of insanity.
RGIII is asking for the same and that cornball Rob Parker can't understand that. I hope he enjoys his suspension.
Tous pour un, un pour tous
