As a black man who's
grown up in a predominantly white city in a much-more-so-then predominantly white
country, I'm not so much horrified by this latest example of black-on-black
media crime as I am amused. It's a rare day when I agree with a bombastic
contrarian like ESPN's Stephen A. Smith (1:25) but today's that day. Watch a
journalist light his own career on fire by discussing pro football player Robert Griffin III ("RG3") with a staggering amount of
insensitivity, ignorance, and indecency.
While still a career-defining mistake, Rob Parker tweets an apology. Hopefully the time off gives him time to reflect on the absolute absurdity of his comments so that the sentiments behind them disappear from the national discourse forever.
