@Livineasy Understand your point on not blaming it all on the network, but this has been building up for sometime. In the last few weeks, we have Stephan A. Smith calling Washington DC "Chocolate City" and using the "N" word on TV.
Meanwhile, Skip is saying he roots for white players because he's white and says Obama is 100% black because he looks black. Stupid people working over at ESPN..same can be said on NFL network...Maybe it's drawing ratings? I change it to another channel. Too many topics regarding race.
1 year, 11 months ago on ESPN suspends Rob Parker for RGIII comments
Parker's career with ESPN should be over. He's caught so much hell, rightfully so. We need less people like him on ESPN and more people with common sense.
@dans1 Who cares if he is a republican or democrat? That's his point of view in politics and we should leave it at that.
You, much like Parker, shouldn't assume that one group of people are one way, in your case, you believe republicans are nothing but racist, anti gay people which is far from the truth when it pertains to the majority. It's like me saying that all Arab people are terrorist which we all know isn't true. It's wrong and stereotypical.
I don't agree with republicans on certain issues either, but democrats have their problems too.
1 year, 11 months ago on Video: Rob Parker questions Robert Griffin III "is he a brother or is he a cornball brother?"
@CarlosQC In 1933, we changed our name to the Redskins which was out of respect for native american head coach, William Henry Dietz. Look it up.
@mfisher5 @ShmeggleMarxist Not going to agree with "Typical". We all know that black people in general aren't like that. But I do believe we learned that Rob Barker has some type of racist streak in him. "The Cause"............i mean that was really bad what he said.
It's his point of view, even though it's backward. But if we want to move forward in this country, we got to leave people like Parker behind.
Parkers point's were so backward which sounded hateful and made no since what so ever. RG3 is a bright man and is way ahead of his time, nobody should be defined by race, but for who you are as a person.
So what if RG3 is married to a white women and is a republican? Parker thinks that if your black, you got to act a certain way? I'm tired of people like Parker who thinks so backward.
We cannot prove "Redskin" is a racist term. If it was used as racist, it was used in the 1800s & it certainly isn't used as that today.
Besides that, according to the northern tribes, redskin means "Great Warrior"
