A few weeks ago, ESPN analyst Rob Parker wondered on air if Robert Griffin III is a “brother or a cornball brother.” From my point of view, he brought race into a discussion that did not require a racial element and he impugned RGIII’s authenticity. I mean, what is a real brother and what standard must RGIII live up to? He seems like a great guy to me and I don’t question his brotherness when I watch him play. ESPN sure thought Parker went too far and fired him today, a move with which I agree. To get some of the background on this delicate and, for me, uncomfortable issue, please click here.
