I have never really understood concepts such as these, from any ethic group.

Why, just why can't you base opinion of a person on their action, character and merit and just accept they are human regardless of ethic background?

I don't care whom is making pathetic and just plain ignorant comments like these. Don't care if you are talking within your ethic group or not.. don't care about your skin color, don't care about your hair style or relationships.

Not black or white enough, geez we humans are plain dumb at times.

“I want to find about him,” Parker said. “I don’t know because I keep hearing these things. We all know he has a white fiancee. Then there was all this talk about he’s a Republican, which there’s no information at all. I’m just trying to dig deeper into why he has an issue. Because we did find out with Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods was like, ‘I’ve got black skin, but don’t call me black.’ So people wondered about Tiger Woods.”

On Braids:

“That’s different, because, to me, that’s very urban,” Parker said. “Wearing braids is, you’re a brother. You’re a brother if you’ve got braids.


Best part.. he figured it best to call others "uneducated" and "silly". Say goodbye to your career at ESPN.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

There are all flavors of racism, from all races. I'm obviously an outsider to the "black community" - but I do not understand why some people in the african-american community feel the need to combat over a century of slavery, then segregation, then discrimination with the concept that every black person must have a certain political views, must do certain things, must marry other black people, and other such crap. Instead of white people telling black people what they need to do and that they need to "act whiter" and look whiter (mostly when it comes to hair), you have black people telling other black people how they should act and feel.

Guess I'm just ranting - Shit like this sickens me just as much as when I see any other form of racism, if not a bit more because it seems more socially acceptable, yet is more insidious. Let people live the lives they want to lead and don't tear them down if they don't conform to your ideas of what they should be.

Unfortunately a lot of people seem to be patting him on the back.

Ok, first off.. Is there a link where I can get the full story? I have no effin' clue on who this guy is talking about.

That said, his mindset (He’s not one of us. He’s kind of black, but he’s not really like the kind of guy you really want to hang out with) is NO DIFFERENT than those of the KKK.

He wants truth, I just dropped it.

Yeah, thanks. I just Googled the topic subject line that you posted and got the story.

WOW. I stand by my original statement. Voiced my opinion on his Twitter, too. The fact that he considered those who oppose his train of thought as uninformed and silly is almost as sad as his opinion itself.

Annnnd, here's why he hasn't tweeted in the past day, despite Twitter/Facebook blowing up with the tragedy in CT:

http://espn.go.com/espn/...ert-griffin-iii-comments

Someone in the comment section said something that's pretty good. His comments = Rush's comments.
