I saw a little of the show and it was offensive, as a Minority myself I was really shocked at Parker's argument

wtf does that even mean? Is this Parker guy black? I assume from his comments that he is...

Yeah, that's a pretty racist comment. "He's not really black. He's black, he does his thing, but he's not really down with the cause. He's not one of us."

Uhhh.... what?

I am going to refrain from my opinion on this to avoid getting the ban hammer again.

But I know what he means and I have made that point in the past

That may be one of the stupidest things I've ever heard.

Parker sounds like an idiot. Kudos to Stephen A Smith for his response.

Wow Stephen A. Smith being the voice of reason:

“First of all, let me say this: I’m uncomfortable with where we just went,” Smith said when asked to respond to Parker. “RG3, the ethnicity or the color of his fiancee is none of our business, it’s irrelevant, he can live his life in whatever way he chooses. The braids that he has in his hair, that’s his business, that’s his life, he can live his life. I don’t judge someone’s blackness based on those kinds of things. I just don’t do that. I’m not that kind of guy.”


Rob Parker is an utter idiot.

That is atrocious. Unfortunately individuals from all walks of life are capable of this kind of idiocy.

Stephen A. Smith hit the nail on the head, totally agree with him.

I know this is not a common opinion but I feel that racial pride, or believing that people of your race need to act a certain way, is a form of racism. So to me, what he said IS racist.
