HTTR, Not Really…

I’m not a football fan- never been a Redskins fan. BUT… I am excited for the African American rookie quarterback known as RG3. A humble leader, imagine that.

I am also excited for the fans. They stick with that team as sorry as they have been, for soooo long. It’s good to see the city celebrate winning; first the Nationals, now this.

The mayor has even made a friendly wager with Seattle’s mayor for Sunday’s game. Losing city flies the winning city’s flag.

ESPN: Encouraging Ignorance?

image

Rob Parker’s comments on ESPN’s First Take were pure ignorance, but apparently not surprising and perhaps anticipated by the network.

The show is known to be controversial and looks for panelists to be “provocative.” I have never seen the show. This incident does not entice me to do so…but for some, it will. It must because it seems that the more ridiculous the content, the more people tune it. [I will save that point for a future post!]

These comments were reportedly sparked by RG3’s comment that he did not want to be identified as an African American quarterback. I don’t even follow football and I know the history of Black quarterbacks in the NFL. I also know enough athletes who, if they are serious about their sport, want to be identified by their prowess and performance- be it a ballerina, hockey player, swimmer, tennis or football player. So how Mr. Parker could land on the comments he made just points to his ignorance and is proof that he is a little man. I would go further to say that he has issues with his identity and race and is an embarassment.

Parker has since been suspended.
