Rob Parker opens his mouth again, and this time ill advised, about RG3

41 posts in this topic

I hate anything that is racially motivated whether it comes from a white person or a black person. Until people can lose this kind of nonsensical attitude, this kind of crap is never going to end.

What an *. this talk really goes on still?!!!! i mean growing up i would get that question because i did not talk with ebonics or because i did not dress a certain way. or hang out with a bunch of people my race or that i actually went to college. But this guy bringing up his soon to be wife... maybe he should go outside his house more often or watch mtv... he will probably see that there are more interracial relationships than just the one he sees rg3 in.

I agree, this kind of crap Parker said is just not needed at all has nothing to do with RG3 as a football player. I am a 41 yr. old white dude and I'll admit I have no idea what a "cornball brother" is, but to me it just sounds stupid. I'm not even a fan of RG3 really but he shouldn't be subjected to this kind of attitude simply because he's engaged to a white girl and whatever else he meant from his stupid comment.

I have no Idea what a "cornball brother" is and honestly think he just made it up to mean "whitewashed" or the dreaded "N" word. My kids are mixed and are beautiful. It's just makes me shake my head because honestly you hear "black" america complain about racism being a factor in things but it seems they are the main ones unwilling to take a step in trying to rid of it. Not trying to turn this into a debate of a divided america or anything. just sad to see of all people to question a persons "real ethnicity"...it would be one of the same race. this guy makes himself out to look like the real meaning of the "N" word.

Can't begin to tell you how disappointing all this is. Not surprising, but disappointing. Rob Parker is not a very bright guy and he just displayed that for the whole world to see.

Who gets to decide if someone is black enough? And what's the criteria? Is having some blood in you other than black the determining fact? White, hispanic, Indian? Is it how you speak? How you dress? Who you marry? Who you're friends with? Where you live, the racial make-up of the neighborhood? How about your hair? Afro or straight? Are Halle Berry, Beyonce Knowles, Alicia Keyes and Vanessa Williams not black enough because their hair is straight? Really? Seriously?

I mean, this is insanity! And incredibly unhealthy.

You are who you are and no one gets to say otherwise. Not you. Not me. Certainly not Rob Parker. Not anyone.

This is 2012, is that really too hard a concept to wrap your head around? Apparently it is for people like Parker. Fortunately, others have weighed in and called him out. Good for Stephen A Smith and others for doing so.

Sheesh!! Who'da thunk it...?? You know what this gets, don't you?!?

I guess the President is the product of a "cornball brother" too, huh, Parker???

Parker is very much like Jalen Rose who called Grant Hill Uncle Tom because Grant Hill grew up in a 2 parent household, something that a lot of fortunate kids get to do around the country. He has a myopic vision of what people of his race should be, cannot extend his horizon and thinks that others of his race should conform to what "he thinks" they should live life like. Talk about narrow minded, that is the very definition, IMO.

Hey Mr. Parker, it is a bigger wonderful world out there, better than what you want to be part of, and something you are not obviously qualified to talk about.

I have no idea what a "cornball brother"

I was born and raised in the "black community" and I've never heard the term cornball brother..lol. Sometimes, I truly believe that some people shouldn't have an avenue to present their foolishness to the world. Down for the cause? I see a lot of people bashing him but honestly, I would truly love to have real dialogue with him about this, just to see what angle he was approaching this at.

I agree, I think RGiii is literally a cornball. I agree with Parker's assertion. RGiii is literally corn, in which is rolled up into a ball. I don't see what the problem is here.

It's like thinking Kanye West is not a gay fish. Clearly he is.

Er.... Hmmmmm

I figured that would be something that Baseless would say but at least he was "smart" enough not to let some dribble like that come out of his mouth. Wow can't believe in this day and age there is not only still blatant racism and to top it off we have someone saying they aren't "black" enough or "white" enough. . . .smh You would think that in 2012(about to be 2013) we could get past this. . . . .

I guess I missed the memo that black guys are supposed to be thugs, hang out with their dogfighting friends from back in the day, have tattoos all over, gold teeth, and pronounce the word 'ask' as 'axe'. Apparently having a sense of decency and not being a Cam Newton egocentric * is a bad thing.

I like RG3 because he isn't a thug player. He is classy in every sense of the word and you can hear it in the way he addresses the media. Truly *ic sentiment from Rob Parker....and I always thought he was alright.

I think Rob is just jealous that Griffin has a looker for a fiancee. haha Yeah, America is never going to change...just when you think racism isn't as obvious and can't poke it's way into national media, it does. Oh well. That's the world I guess.

He's holding firm.

He think's your uneducated and silly if you took offense to his racism.

Oh well, he got his attention.

He's in full offensive mode on his twitter account. It's quite the madhouse in there right now.

I hope ESPN dishes out some punishment over this, but I seriously doubt it.

Especially after what Stephen A. Smith got away with on air....

I honestly don't want him fired. There are a lot of people who think like him, and people need to see what stupidity really looks like. I'm not a fan of people being to heavily censored for being stupid, I find it instructive. It's also an opinion oriented medium. 

Unpopular opinions shouldn't be silenced, they should be taken at face value. 

 

I feel that this brand of racism is at a ground swell, and there needs to be some push back in the public debate against this type of thinking.  :2c:

I like how Parker thought he could define what a brother was. Parker thought he could define what black is really about. It's pretty silly to see some people on twitter ask black people who work (Stephen A smith, Jemele Hill, Michael Smith, Bomani Jones etc.) at ESPN getting asked about this and their thought on it. Parker doesn't represent black people anymore than they or I do. His stupidity and what he said is on him and his thoughts are his alone. A shame he said them, but they're on him. His suspension I don't really have an opinion on if it's needed or not needed. There have been worse things said on TV sadly and no punishment doled out so this punishment for this 'crime' doesn't really make me feel positive/negative about how the situation was handled.

    • Let's talk UDFA: Tevaun Smith
      I am also pretty high on Smith.   I don't think he would have received any more attention had he gone to a different ('better') football school, as Iowa was a top 10 team last year and Kirk Ferentz is one of the most-highly respected college coaches by NFL Teams (there was a while when I thought he was going to be Colts' head coach, in fact).  There was a while when Polian was very high on Iowa's program (when we drafted Bob Sanders, Dallas Clark), and I believe either Pagano or Grigs mentioned how NFL ready players from Iowa are when we drafted Blythe this year.   All that said, I think Smith is very raw.  He needs much help on consistency in route running and in using his body.  As you mentioned, he has the size (he is actually somewhere around 6'0" or 6'1", though, not at 6'2") where bulking up should not be a major issue, but right now he either seems to lack strength (though 13 reps of 225 at his pro day is pretty strong for a WR) or lack of knowledge of how to use his size to his advantage.   He does have the hands and the speed, I think, for sure.  If he's coachable and can really improve his route-running, I could see him sticking around on the 53, but right now I'm projecting him as a practice squad player.
    • The Trouble With Andrew Luck
      Way too many generalizations and inaccuracies for me.    1) It's not really true that Hilton struggles against press coverage. He actually eats press coverage up most of the time he faces it, which is why rarely anyone tries to press him. This is just the typical knock against a smallish receiver -- he's only 5'10", so he has trouble with physical coverage. Yeah, ask Brandon Browner about that... The only strategy that slows down Hilton is to bracket him with a corner underneath and a safety over the top, and if the only way to stop a receiver is to double him, then he qualifies as a true #1. If jamming him at the line was all you had to do to stop him, teams would jam him.   2) Acting like Gore and Turbin can't produce in the passing game is dumb. Gore has averaged 34 catches/year over his career, with over 8 yards/catch. He's older, so maybe he won't get that many receiving opportunities, but the Colts have a handful of younger guys who have the pass catching skill set and who will compete for the RB3/4 spots on the roster. If the Colts want to utilize backs in the passing game, they'll be able to.   3) Acting like Dwayne Allen isn't capable of producing as a pass catcher is also ridiculous. He's not Jimmy Graham, but he's been an all over the field pass catcher since Clemson. Line him up wherever you want. No reason he can't be a reasonably high volume pass catcher, especially since he's now the undisputed TE1, not sharing the role with Fleener. The writer compares Allen to Martellus Bennett, who had a 90 catch season two years ago, but averages 43 catches/year. Allen had 45 catches as a rookie. He is the droid you're looking for.   I agree with the overall premise of the article. Luck has some work to do, but the offense has to evolve in order to take better use the weapons we have and minimize the weaknesses. The previous coordinator didn't do a good job of this. Chud didn't have Luck for 6 of his 7 games, and wasn't running his preferred offense anyway. We'll see what Chud has in store, but I'm optimistic that he has a good idea of how to get this offense tuned up.
    • Extremly early prediction...
      Jones, if healthy, IMO, is our best DL.  I am optimistic he'll be OK because his injuries the past 2 years have happened on different ankles, he doesn't have a long history of being injury-prone (IMO, he came back too early 2 seasons ago, and last season's injury was just a freak accident), plus I'm pretty optimistic from what I hear/read about our new strength coach.  Donald Thomas was weak and he was truly injury-prone (IMO).   Also, DQ has been a pro-bowler the past 2 years and has been a pretty darn good player for us. I don't see Sylvestre being an upgrade over him.   I also don't think we're going to be making any big FA signings at all for the remainder of this offseason, so I don't think saving up cap space this year will do us any real good.  I could see us getting rid of him after this season, but no way can I imagine he won't be on the 53 this year.    
    • Let's talk UDFA: Tevaun Smith
      I've decided to try and start a thing to go in depth and discuss some of the udfa's we've picked up. It always seems like we bring in a good batch of UDFA but I think this year was very good and can see a couple making the 53.   So to starts things off we will talk about a WR out of Iowa that was born in Canada, Tevaun Smith. 6'2 205 and his 40's at his pro day were 4.41 and 4.38 (Moncreifs' was 4.35 and 4.40 at the combine). He's a very gifted receiver and would have probably got alot more attention if he went to a better football school. He has impressive hands and snatches balls out of the air. I like the way he gets separation using either his speed or a quick double move. He seems very agile and he's good at playing and tracking the ball. A con though is he doesn't play very physical and he's a little light at 205 but he could easily bulk up. He was highly praised coming out of high school and has all the tools you really want in a WR, he seems to have his head on straight and appears to be a hard worker. I definitely would not mind him being #4-5 WR. An obvious and easy comparison is Moncreif and think he won have easily been worth a 5th  I'm no Profesional and there's several on here that have more knowledge than I so please take it easy on me, I would like to continue these especially since it's a lil slow on here. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BIoBxIdZULU

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
