Ugh why did he say that sh*t? My brother told me how ESPN focuses on "black quarterbacks in the NFL" and the way he told me had me cracking up, it just seems like a silly topic. I don't watch football, but I can guess why (white) folks would obsess on a racial topic like that.
Kinda OT, but I was in the bank a few months ago and one of the TVs was on ESPN. Surprise surprise they were talking about "Black quarterbacks in the NFL." One banker acted like he wanted me to get out ASAP

I don't have a problem with Rob's comments, and I don't have a problem with RG3's comments. I do think RG3 is a cornball, but so am I. What's wrong with being corny?

Rob Parker is a trip always has been. I dont take him seriously all the time and he gets on his high horse about certain things...When he was doing a local show here he went in on Blk athletes and how they tend to date/marry nonblack women... shh was hilarious but yeah. Sometimes rob needs to chill

Rob Parker gets 30-day suspension from ESPN for ‘cornball brother’ commentary directed at Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III 

The suspension, which might be viewed as a slap on the wrist, comes one week after Parker, an African American, was suspended for insisting Griffin isn't black enough to suit him.

Rob Parker discusses Robert Griffin III and calls him a 'cornball brother' on ESPN.

Rob Parker won't walk the plank.

Parker, who unleashed a racially charged spew vilifying Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III on ESPN's "First Take" has been hit with a 30 day suspension.

"Our review of the preparation for the show and the re-air has established that mistakes both in judgement and communication were made," Marcia Keegan, the ESPN executive who oversees "First Take" said Thursday. "As a direct result, clearly inappropriate content was aired and then re-aired without editing. Both were errors on our part."

Keegan said ESPN has "enhanced the editorial oversight" of "First Take." She said "disciplinary measures" with the people responsible "for these failures" have also been taken.

ESPN's Rob Parker says he has reached out to Robert Griffin III's agent to offer apology.

The 30 days suspension, which might be viewed as a slap on the wrist, comes one week after Parker, an African American, was suspended for insisting Griffin isn't black enough to suit him. "Is he a brother or a cornball brother?" Parker asked on "First Take."

"He's black, he kind of does the thing," Parker said. "But he's not really down with the cause. He's not one of us. He's kinda black, but he's not really like the guy you really want to hang out with because he's off into something else."

Keegan said the incident will not change the direction of the show.

"We will continue to discuss the important issues in sports, including race. Debate is an integral part of sports and we will continue to engage in it," she said. "However, we believe what we have learned here and the steps we have taken will help us do all that better."

On Wednesday, Parker took to Twitter to apologize for his commentary. "I blew it and I'm sincerely sorry," Parker wrote. "I completely understand how the issue of race and sports is a sensitive one and needs to be handled with great care. Last Thursday I failed to do that."

Parker said he reached out to Griffin's agent with the hopes of making a direct apology to the quarterback.

ESPN's decision clearly indicates other production personnel was disciplined for allowing Parker's commentary to run not only on a "First Take" replay but also on "The Best of First Take." It isn't clear if Parker told the producers in advance what he was going to say about Griffin.

Initially, Parker's Twitter account did not reflect the network's concern. He did not apologize immediately, but rather posted tweets either supporting his point of view or his right to say what he said.

Parker, a former Daily News sportswriter who is a TV and radio personality in Detroit, had just been elevated to the primary "debater" on the new Saturday edition of "First Take." His critics have said much of his commentary is designed to draw attention to himself. In this case he's succeeded.

"It's a double-edged sword over there (at ESPN)," an industry source said. "They want these debate shows to be provocative. Then when someone pushes too far, they've got a problem? It's tricky."

Parker clearly took those words very seriously.

Now he'll have 30 days thinking about how to choose his words.
