RG3 a “Cornball Brother”/likely Republican according to ESPN analyst

Apparently having a white girlfriend and being a successful, laudable athlete means you MIGHT be a republican. But it DEFINITELY means you are not a real black person.

National Review captures out the idiocy of Rob Parker:

Parker, a columnist at a handful of outlets over the years, has a history of stirring the pot when it comes to race issues in sports. He teeters back and forth between evaluating how “black” Griffin is – “kind of black,” “not really down with the cause” or “not one of us,” but it’s the evidence that prompted his hand wringing that’s so disturbing. “We all know he has a white fiancé. There was all this talk about he’s a Republican, which, there’s no information [about that] at all. I’m just trying to dig deeper as to why he has an issue.”

For Parker, having a white fiancé and potentially being a Republican is “an issue.”

Griffin has been clear that he has no interest in being defined by the color of his skin. Parker, it seems, begs to differ.
