Why Rob Parker's Comments About RGIII Exposes the Hypocrisy of Race in Sports
Thoughts without name calling....Anyone??
"I've seen some coaches lose with good players. I haven't seen anybody win without them." Rhett Lashlee
Name calling generally is a release of frustration or hate. My belief is if someone makes something a race issue he/she is racist.

One terrible thing that is just about taken for granted is that a minority can't be racist toward his or her own race. This is simply not the case. The guy who commented on RG3 is a great example of that.
I agree. RG3 seems to be an outstanding, talented, well spoken young man. Other than shock value, which failed miserely, Parker should be held accountable. Not saying he should lose his job, but do think he should be held to the same standards as others in his profession.
Have to say I agree as well.
"There's no doubt, we're going up."
We constantly hear about the evils of racial stereotypes. Yet clowns like Parker insist on using many of those same stereotypes as a litmus test for racial authenticity. Sad irony.
If he was white and said what he said, he'd be fired and it'd be a long, long time before he got a job again. I'm not sure that wouldn't be appropriate here.
What you state is true. However, I do not go along with the firing of individuals for a statement or one time misstep as I have seen repeated for others that have expressed their feeling, So I would not wish that upon him. Repercussions, suspension, and some consequences should be demanded. An apology is out of the question. We already know his stance so I would not beleive him if he back tracked.

Wonder how he views BHO with these "standards?' Oh! I forgot he doesn't have braids....Does that mean he is even "less black?"
