RGII Responds To Commentator Rob Parker’s Wreckless Critism Of His Son RGIII

By Victor Trammell

ESPN sports commentator Rob Parker set the media and blogosphere on fire with his foolish televised comments yesterday. Instead of staying in his lane of being critical of an athlete’s ability or lack thereof, Parker exploded with futility and played the race card. In his idiotic tirade,  he questioned the “blackness” of Robert Griffin III, (RG3)  star quarterback for the NFL’s Washington Redskins. Robert Griffin II, RG3′s father has taken the high road in response to Parker’s meaningless public psychobabble. Robert Griffin II is a U.S. millitary veteran who has obviously done a good job raising a successful young son who is a model athlete both on and off the field. He did an interview with the USA Today and gave his opinion of Parker’s scathing remarks about his son. He quoted:

“He needs to define what ‘one of us’ is. That guy needs to define that; I wouldn’t say it’s racism. I would just say some people put things out there about people so they can stir things up. Robert is in really good shape on who he is, where he needs to get to in order to seek the goals he has in life … so I don’t take offense.” (USA Today)

RG3 took to Twitter to express appreciation for his father and thanked him for his support. He tweeted:

I’m thankful for a lot of things in life and one of those things is your support. Thank you.”

ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys  also talked with USA Today and stated that the network is evaluating this incident and will take the proper steps to deal with it from a disciplinary standpoint. If Parker loses his job, hopefully he will learn a valuable lesson about professionalism.

    Y’all need to stop using the words ‘race card’ to define Black people!!! Anything caucasoids define; y’all fall for it, and runaway with it.

    The True meaning of the word ‘race card’ is to MINIMIZE THE EFFECTS OF RACISM. We are NOT racist; therefore, how in the heII could this crazy negroid use the words ‘race card’ to describe another Black man? Wake up folks, and start researching these code words, that caucasoids have put into our language…this is how they enslaved us…they stole OUR language, then our minds! NOTHING HAS CHANGED!

    This word is used to BELITTLE or poke fun at the serious charge of racism. In code language these yankees are saying, that race is not an issue or a problem, and is only being used because the accuser has no other grounds to gain sympathy and support.

    This word was designed by the caucasoid conservative movement and came of age during the trial of O.J. Simpson in 1995. This word is an excellent propaganda tool designed to deflect and downplay the devastating impact of racism in REAL LIFE social interaction

    racism = the belief in and practice of racial domination, discrimination, degradation and oppression

    racists = individuals, groups and populations who believe in and practice white supremacy and racial domination

    racial warfare = the uninterrupted campaign of racism that has the effect of degrading, destablizing and CONFUSING Black people here and abroad (Enaharo, p 77).

    Y’ALL NEGROIDS ARE CONFUSED USING THESE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOURSELVES!!!

  2. Shut up Derrick!! You’re DEFINITELY one racist AND patently ignorant “NEGROID” with low self esteem to boot.
