Rob Parker out at ESPN for Robert Griffin III comments

ESPN has dumped Rob Parker for comments about Robert Griffin III. Normally, I'm not one to advocate for people to get fired over their statements. However, I can't say I feel sorry for Parker. He's an idiot.

At some point, black people will have to stop questioning the "blackness" of those who have different views. It mostly (almost exclusively) happens when a black person says s/he is not a leftist, progressive or Democrat or when s/he strongly opposes ghetto culture.

Robert Griffin carries himself well, like an intelligent man. There was a time that people would use the expression "he is a credit to the race." Now, the only people who seem to get validated for being "authentically" black are the buffoons. Buffoonery is not authentic blackness.
