ESPN is really going to put this guy back on the air. The Big Lead track down an interview that Rob Parker did in Detroit where he tried to explain the ignorant comments he made about RG3, only to make even more ignorant comments.
Here is what Parker had to say and it is obvious he hasn’t learned nothing from the incident and his apology was hollow.
“It was never about condemning the young man … it was more about concerns, not condemning.”
It was a conversation that’s had in the black community when athletes or famous entertainers or whatever push away from their people … you saw it from OJ Simpson, “well I’m not black, I’m OJ.”
“I wasn’t saying that he wasn’t black enough. When people say that, it’s just not true. I was saying these are the conversations that take place, once a guy pushes away …”
Exactly how has RG3 pushed away from black people besides being an exemplary player and person on and off the field? I would really like for Parker to explain that. What exactly does he want RG3 to do?
But, this is what ESPN wants and until you the viewer decides you won’t take it anymore it is what you are going to get every day.
