ESPN commentator on RG3: “He’s kind of black, but he’s not really”

I saw a little of the show and it was offensive, as a Minority myself I was really shocked at Parker's argument
is Cam black enough? and what does that even mean?

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."

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

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

“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.

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

sidenote: "I don’t judge someone’s blackness based on those kinds of things."
why would you "judge someone's blackness" at all?

Yes, Parker is black. So it's not racist. It's just fuging retarded.
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.
