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


Could you explain in gentle terms? Because it sure seems like Parker is saying that someone's "blackness" is dependent upon how they act/what they do.

Nothing pisses me off more than people having to 'authenticate' their race. It is so debasing of a person tp be that narrowly defined. Reminds me of one of my good friends from college was a black guy that got made fun of by other black guys because he 'dressed white' and hung out with me, a white-ish fellow. I guess he wasn't black enough, or a 'cornball brother', whatever the fug that means. Racism is definitely two sided.

Rob Parker needs to be sat down by ESPN... I saw that and was like you can not be serious... ESPN tried to bail him out and dude kept speaking more foolishness.

Without saying anything wrong... He "Rob Parker" himself is just as much a problem as people of color with racial prejudice in the US. Dude was out of line... especially bringing up the color of his fiance... gtfo of here.

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.


I agree with this. I don't think most white folk are proud of those they deem white trash. On the other side those deemed white trash aren't usually real hot on those casting the first stone.

Listen to me guys. Rob Parker is an IDIOT, and he has been for a long long time. And he doesn't speak for black people. And on that note:

Richard Deitsch@richarddeitsch

ESPN PR on Rob Parker's comments today on First Take: "The comments were inappropriate and we are evaluating our next steps."

From 2008, he has no class. This is why he got fired from the Detroit newspaper he used to work at.

I wish I had some idea at all at what he was asking/saying in that Lions clip.

I'm surprised Bomani Jones hasn't said something this ignorant yet.
