ESPN Suspends Rob Parker For Comments On RGIII

(WSCR) In the wake of his comments regarding Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, ESPN has suspended Rob Parker “until further notice.”

During yesterday’s edition of First Take, Parker made comments inferring Griffin didn’t act “black” enough.

“Is he a brother, or is he a cornball brother,” Parker asked, questioning Griffin’s commitment to the black community. “… He’s not one of us.”

“I keep hearing these things. We all know he has a white fiancée. There was all this talk about he’s a Republican.”

There’s no word yet on when or if Parker will return.
