I get embracing your race and all, I just don't agree with the way certain segments of the black population think you should go about doing it.


So the "real" black people are angry because he doesn't speak like English is his third or fourth language, doesn't wear his clothes 5 sizes too big, dates white girls, and doesn't practice all around general thuggery?

I guess the "real" black people don't realize that if he acted like "them" he would not be taken seriously by anyone and probably wouldn't have graduated from Baylor and won the heisman trophy. He won over a lot of those voters because of his quirky personality. It seems like a lot of people have a problem with his work ethic and humbleness. That's what is pathetic.

re: ESPN's Rob Parker calls RG3 a "cornball-brotha"


Just got around to this thread and watching the video, and holy shit, Rob Parker is a fricking dumbass (though I already knew that). What the frick was his point and how the hell could he not see this going horribly for him?

Also, is there a video with Stephen A. talking afterwards? I kinda want to see his whole reaction

It's absolutely mind boggling that when a white person points out the difference between white and black culture they're labeled racist, yet the whole intent of the black culture is to maintain those differences. They can celebrate their differences, but no one NOT black can even talk about them.


As long as they allow that crap to happen, this country will continue to be on opposite poles...That is why I always say the race pimps like Quannel X, Jesse & Al do more to hurt the black race than help it...

quote:


I was driving my youngest daughter to school Thursday when a text message appeared on my cell phone: “Sup Deron. Wats ur take on RF3 (sic). Real Brutha or a cornball who don’t wanna b a Bruhtha.” It was from a friend, ESPN commentator Rob Parker.
Not wanting to text and drive, I didn’t answer right away and actually forgot about it. But Parker called after I returned home and we chatted about the subject for 10 minutes before he had to leave. “I’m about to go on,” he said.
Moments later, he was on “First Take,” questioning an athlete’s blackness with references to a white fiancée and Republican leanings. The controversial segment outraged viewers, blew up cyberspace and earned him a suspension – with the threat of more severe consequences looming.

I imagine this is what it feels when you’re the last person to speak to someone before he or she harms themself. You wonder if your conversation was a contributing factor. You wonder if you should have done anything differently. You wonder if you could have said something to steer him in the opposite direction.



quote:


No, skin color should never be a basis of judgment. So let justice be blind while the rest of us enjoy the blessing of sight.
We most certainly see color. Just like we see gender and generation. And height and weight. And hair and the lack thereof. It’s OK.
We can acknowledge that people (gasp!) come in different sizes, shapes and colors, without reaching conclusions or determining treatment based on size, shape and color. Noting the obvious isn’t a character flaw; “blindness” isn’t a sign of moral superiority.
Conversely, despite stereotypes and generalizations, blacks and whites aren’t monolithic any more than thicks and thins. Whether RG3 is militant or milquetoast, radical or reserved, apoplectic or apologetic, he’s still, in his words, “an African-American in America.”
There’s no need to debate that fact, especially not on national TV.
I just wish I was clearer about that before my friend went on ESPN and questioned RG3’s bonafides. It might not have made a difference, but I’d feel better about what transpired.
