Rob Parker, Sports Journalist, Questions Robert Griffin III's Blackness On ESPN's 'First Take' (VIDEO)

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...

When cats like Rob Parker say ish like that, they trying to front like they are pro-black or "hood"

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.
