Turns out RG III fancies himself as a quarterback who happens to be black -- as opposed to a black quarterback. When asked for the millionth time about...
When I look at RGIII I see a tremendous athlete and a very smart young man. If Parker sees a black man, then he must be the racist. His "apology" reveals his true feelings, because it isn't an apology at all, just a statement that he didn't say it very well. Elder has this right on target. Wasn't MLK a Republican? Wasn't it the Republicans who fought to end slavery? Isn't it the Republicans who have confidence in the abilitites and value of the life of all people? Isn't it the Republicans who agree with MLK that it is the character not color. Those who cry race are those usually most racist. How else would Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson survive? I value people like Elder, Sowell, RGII, Star Parker, West, Watts, C. Rice, those who achieve.
To a black ESPN sports analyst, this is the critical question: Is Robert Griffin III, aka RG III, the black rookie sensation Washington Redskins quarterback, "a brother, or is he a cornball brother?" What has RG III done or said to raise a suspicion about his bona fides as a black person? More importantly, what does this have to do with appreciating -- or choosing not to appreciate -- Griffin as an athlete?
