This clip of ESPN's Rob Parker questioning the blackness of Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has literally left us speechless.
On Thursday, Parker, a commentator for "First Take," went on a rant about RGIII's connection to the black community, posing one of the oddest questions we've ever heard: "Is he a brother, or is he a cornball brother?”
Apparently we're not alone in our bewilderment. Here are a few Twitter reactions we spotted:
Rob Parker's idiotic comments about Robert Griffin not being a "real brother" are an embarrassment to black people... fb.me/EpDi2COz— Alonzo Bodden (@AlonzoBodden) December 13, 2012
When cats like Rob Parker say ish like that, they trying to front like they are pro-black or "hood"— Thunder Lee Dawkins(@Black_Ted_Mosby) December 13, 2012
There's much more to the black experience than the race of your spouse or the political party you identify with. It's all blood. That's it.— Brandon Pope (@BpopeBSU) December 13, 2012
