Rob Parker fired by ESPN
 
Rob Parker’s comments questioning Robert Griffin III’s blackness have finally cost him his job. ESPN announced on Tuesday that they would be firing the “First Take” host.

Here’s the company’s statement on the matter:

“Rob Parker’s contract expired at year’s end. Evaluating our needs and his work, including his recent RGIII comments, we decided not to renew his deal.”

Parker said on “First Take” Dec. 13 that he wasn’t sure what kind of brother Griffin was. He questioned the quarterback’s blackness, and the episode re-aired throughout the day on ESPN without that part being edited out of the show. As the backlash picked up throughout the day, ESPN finally addressed the comments by calling them “inappropriate.”

He's got a promising career ahead of him as a Democrat politician.

How does one be Black? How does one be White?
How does one proove he/she is Black, White,Puerto Rican, etc.

One thing that has been proven is Parker parked himself out of a good career, plum job there .
