I guess the two “brothas” that killed others and died horrible deaths were more SOUL brothas than a white-female-for-a-fiance Republican Christian who minds his own business and fears G-d and does his own thing, who is not REALLY black because of those issues…

Good grief, I missed the part where he said RGII was not the kind of guy you want to hang out with. What a qumquat. Griffin has the whole Washington, D.C., area excited. There’s probably a million guys in that city alone who would like to hang our with him.

Liberal scumbags and libertarians like Andy Levy said the exact same thing about Tim Tebow. Because he is a Christian and very openly and proudly so he is not “their type” of person and they wouldn’t hang with him as they don’t think he is for real OR he wouldn’t seem like a very fun guy. Andy Levy was less… hateful, but quite arrogant about it. Whereas this other liberal loon was QUITE hateful to the point of saying that men like him couldn’t be trusted. Seriously? If he had a daughter he wouldn’t want her to be with a man like Tebow? Or would he be okay with his daughter being with a scumbag? Insane! Whereas if he was an openly gay football player and hypersexual at that, I am sure they would rush to be his friend. I find this to be EXTREMELY weird.

I remember growing up I would dress the way I wanted to dress and black girls would make comments like I dress like a white girl. Several years ago I worked with two hispanic white girls (who did profess to be Catholics but were unmarried living with boyfriends and one had a child out of wedlock with another guy earlier in her life), who even though I never really spoke to them about my faith at all (seriously) were “surprised” (I felt they were upset), that I was a “good girl” and was “too good” and ALWAYS “doing the right thing” like that is a bad thing :-/…. One of them told me that the first time she met me she saw me cleaning the store and thought that I was such a b*tch because women than clean tend to be b*tches. :-o So conversely a person that lives in a dirty home are fantastic people? what?!

Seriously? What is wrong with this world?

Anyway I would like to “hang out” with him too, but I know he got a woman.

Parker said what he said because he recognizes consciously or not that while he may have given in not every young black man succumbs to the thug life, surrounds himself with guns, posses, and illegitimate children and their multiple mothers. That is the byproduct of 50 years of the Great Society and RGIII seems to have avoided it all. Of course apologists like Parker are going to react this way. The fact that he said it on national TV speaks volumes to how ingrained this incredibly flawed thinking is and how many in the black community don’t seem to recognize that it is wrong and destructive.

Okay, per the authentic Robert Parker, Robert Griffin III is not an authentic Negro, not down for the struggle, and is a “cornball brother”; all this because he’s educated, might be a Republican and has a white girlfriend. Parker is a nasty, small minded man and an overt racist, he’s a dim wit brother and he should be fired.

If they hadn’t fired the one guy who used the phrase “chink in the armor” I’d say don’t fire him. But, since they fired that other guy without letting him explain that he wasn’t using that chink but merely the adjective describing a weakness… They shouldn’t have suspended this hypocritical asshat, they should have fired him right off. No way to take this “out of context!”

I’m not even going to try to remember the dates of them all, but I can tell you the date of the first one, and just list acts from there, but will likely forget some of those too.

These first ones were all in the summer of ’77:
7/3/77 Pink Floyd (Animals Tour) Madison Square Garden
Heart with Rick Derringer
Grateful Dead, Marshall Tucker, New Riders of the Purple Sage
Henry Gross and Johnny Winter

Some time in ’78 I managed to squeeze in:
Pat Benatar
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts

Then I went on a concert hiatus because I was a roadie for bar bands, but then got to work a few concerts:
Humble Pie
Aerosmith
Molly Hatchet
Cheap Trick
Alice Cooper
Twisted Sister

Went in the Air Force and while in TX saw
Van Halen
Bruce Springsteen

After that was on another hiatus, but followed up with in no particular order, and not sure who was with who:
Page and Plant
Billy Joel
Paul McCartney
Bruce Springsteen 3 more times
Kenny G
Ted Nugent
Deep Purple
Allman Brothers
Journey 3x
REO Speedwagon
Kiss with Aerosmith
Pat Benatar 3x
Blondie
B-52′s
Lynrd Skynrd
Loverboy

I know there were others, but I’m getting forgetful in my old age.

Let me see Rush Limbaugh is fired from his show for stating that the Philadelphia and the MSM press wanted to see McNabb succeed solely because he was black. Now here is a so called analyst for ESPN smearing a young man who by all indications is an excellent example of what a true man is. So he has a white fiancee’, he believes in God and might just be a Republican, maybe he gets it. That working hard and dedicating yourself to the trade that you wish to be a part of might make you an excellent employee and a role model for the youths that are coming from less than stellar up ratings.

It is the minds set of race baiters like this that keep most of the black population feeling like that they cant have a chance and are worthless.

It worse then that, Parker is looking for racial loyalty across the board. But I’ll tell you what RG3 knows, that he was the #2 overall draft pick behind Andrew Luck, who went to the Colts at #1, & that he’s being paid a load of money to turn the Washington Redskins back into a winner. He knows that if he flames out, that he will be remembered as a failed QB, not a black QB. Anyone remember the last time the Colts had the #1 pick? They had a choice between Peyton Manning or Ryan Leaf. Leaf’s name is synonymous with total failure, & RG3 understands that. It’s too bad ESPN’s Rob Parker is too damn dumb to get that. RG3 should stay above the fray & not even adress this unless he wants to.

Bottom line is this, in sports, the results will speak for themself. It won’t matter what color your skin is, if you can play, you will be rewarded. If you suck, you’ll be gone. Sports is a high profile results driven buisiness, it is ruthless, & RG3 looks like he’s up for it.

It’s beyond that, sometimes it goes into child abuse. In Canada, junior hockey players often leave home as teenagers to advance their chance to have a career in the sport. They often live with host families, not unlike foster families, & sometimes the coaches can host as well. Usually there are no issues, but every so often, there is. Graham James was a big time junior hockey(ages 17-21 usually) coach in Canada…

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graham_James_(ice_hockey)

[edit] Sexual abuse

In 1996, Sheldon Kennedy and another unnamed player came forward with complaints about sexual abuse they had suffered between 1984 and 1995,[4] and in November 1996, James was charged with sexual assault.[1] On January 2, 1997, James pleaded guilty to 350 sexual assaults against the two players, and was sentenced to three and a half years in jail. He was paroled in 2001.[1][4] The players referred to whomever James targeted as “Graham’s new favourite.” James was charismatic and consistently successful as a coach. Even during his investigation, he was able to secure character references from respected hockey people and former players. He claimed that his relationship with Sheldon Kennedy was consensual and it was not illegal or immoral.[5] James noted that he was attracted to males, primarily between the ages of 15 and 25, but kept these feelings closeted.[6]

In 1999, a civil lawsuit against James, the Canadian Hockey Association, the Western Hockey League and other hockey organizations was filed by an unnamed victim of James and his parents. It was settled out of court in 2003.[1]

James was given a lifetime ban from coaching by the Canadian Hockey Association.[4] When the CHA learned that James was coaching in Spain, it complained to European ice hockey officials, and he was fired.[4][7] His subsequent whereabouts were unclear, though there were some rumours that he was living in Montreal.[4] In May 2010, he was located by a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation investigative reporter, living in Guadalajara, Mexico.[4]

In a memoir entitled Playing with Fire: The Theo Fleury Story, retired NHL player Theo Fleury alleged that from the age of 14 James had molested him for years during his time on the Moose Jaw Warrior team.[4][8] On January 6, 2010, Fleury filed a criminal complaint with the City of Winnipeg police.[4][3] “I have been reflecting on this a long time,” said Fleury. “I wanted to make the biggest impact on preventing this kind of thing from happening in the future.”[3] James pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting Todd Holt and his cousin Theo Fleury, who played in the NHL. He claimed to have assaulted both of his former players hundreds of times over the course of many years while they were teenagers. A third victim, Greg Gilhooly also filed a complaint with the police. James refused to plead guilty to the charges relating to Gilhooley’s assault and, consequently, the Gilhooly charges were stayed.[9] James has been sentenced to two years imprisonment for these crimes.

Pardon

On April 4, 2010, it was revealed in the media that James had been issued a pardon by the Canadian National Parole Board in 2007. News of the pardon only came to light when an unidentified Winnipeg man brought an allegation of abuse against him. [11] The situation surrounding the pardon provoked outrage, and has led to proposed changes to the Canadian pardon system.[4]

On October 25, 2010, James was taken into custody at Pearson International Airport in Toronto. He was wanted in Winnipeg on nine counts of sexual assault,[12] and was released on bail in December of that same year.[13]

[edit] New charges

On December 7, 2011, James pleaded guilty to sexual assaults involving two of his former players, former NHL star Theoren Fleury and Todd Holt, a cousin of Fleury’s.

On March 20, 2012 he was sentenced to 2 years in prison,[14] submitting DNA sample to national sex offender registry, and lifetime ban on “volunteering in a position of trust to children”.[15] The new charges arose from Theoren Fleury’s autobiography in which he describes the abuse. [16]

…while this is an extreme case, we do tend to see cases in society where people who have power & authority over others, usually young people, can & will exploit them.

This man to me exemplifies ALL that is wrong with Black American Males (generally speaking). I do not understand how everything that is good is now bad and everything that is bad is now good. He should be ashamed of himself. Black Women in this country have to deal horrible Black Men who think too highly of themselves. I find it so awesome that he is humble and admits his love and fear of G-d. I have to say here that I am not surprised if he chose a White
woman because sadly a lot of the Black Women who live in that world can be ho’s. If his choices of BW were not good, he needed to find a respectable women where he found her regardless of how she looks like. I would do the same.

Rob Parker has been suspended. Knowing ESPN – virulently liberal – this is simply a way to get the spotlight off this ugly incident. Parker will be back as soon as they think people have forgotten. After all, Parker represents hardcore liberal dogma about race. I’m sure most of the ESPN staff agree with what he said.

Oh I see… I see…

So what is he saying? That Black people are NATURALLY stupid, ignorant, poor, entitled, negligent, irresponsible, immoral, freaky, etc. etc… ? Isn’t that a racist stance? and since RGIII isn’t then he is pushing away from his people…? If he was white and he said this he would have been fired.

Okay this is the second time on the media he is saying something stupid (and who knows how many times in private) so I can only come to one conclusion: He is an envious b*tch, just like that fugly guy that hated on delicious Tebow a few weeks back. He probably wanted to see a Black quarterback that in his disgusting and warped mind better represented him and the “true black people” that are ignorant and classless as per his own ideas. So he has no idea what he is talking about and he hates himself.

Is like Sarah Palin, no liberal has a problem with a liberal woman being Vice President or President, but they don’t want a Conservative or a conservative minded and acting woman to be Vice President nor President, because she doesn’t fit the natural mold of liberal thinking. Since RGIII does not fit the natural mold of “blackness” then he shouldnt be a quarterback. It is so wrong and disgusting I dont know how these people live with themselves.

(I feel bad for him and his knee, I was told that he was playing too hard like he had something to prove and that is possibly the truth, the coach should have been looking out for him)

Yeah, there’s a bit of controversy about his playing with that bad knee. He came up limping in the first quarter and was clearly hobbled. I don’t know who to blame, the coaching/medical staff or RGIII for trying to play hurt. I hope he didn’t ruin himself permanently.

And the comment about “his people” is just disgusting to me. When are the racists going to let people be people? Nothing moral and nothing scientific warrants the constant drive to classify human beings into arbitrary racial categories. The Rob Parkers of this world are afraid of what’s happening around them – the world has passed them by. Tens of millions of interracial children who refuse to be classified are gradually ending the racial politics that allowed him and his ilk to play the victim all their lives. Instead of looking at a couple like RGIII and his fiancee and seeing the wonder of love, Parker sees the end of his excuses for being a shoddy human being.

First off, I felt bad for RG3 with his knee injury. He has had ACL surgury when he was at Baylor, so he should know what to expect. I will say that sports medicine & the training of the modern athelete, these sorts of injuries ain’t the end of the line the way they used to be. Adrian Peterson just shocked me with how quickly he recovered. He might be a mutant, because it’s about 9 months when you are able to start your comeback, you should’nt have a 2,000 season as quickly as he did.

Consider what could have been done for guys like Micky Mantle, OJ Simpson, Joe Namath, or Bobby Orr. All done in by bad knees, & with OJ, just talking about ON THE FIELD, not his off the field exploits. Those guys & countless others did’nt have our sports training & sports medicine advances. What might have been.

Micky Mantle is the one I wonder about. People don’t realize how fast he was when he came into the league, then he practically destroyed his knee and was never the same but went on to have a Hall of Fame career anyway. I’ve had my own knee injury and I learned very quickly that alcohol was the best pain medicine. I’d limp into the bar barely able to walk after basketball, then walk home pain free after a few drinks. You have to wonder how much of the alcoholism that destroyed Mantle’s liver and ultimately killed him was caused by knee pain.

In my humble opinion it all goes back to Liberals and Progressives wanting to ensure that Blacks conform to a specific rubric and if they don’t they are destroyed or minimized. That is a why to keep Blacks enslaved even if not physically defintely mentally so they vote and continue to have as leaders those who tell them they are victims still and need to be angry at those that are nt allowing them to be better. Idiots dont see that it is THOSE people that are not allowing them to be better. insanity

It’s also a tacit acknowledgement that the educational and societal issues created by their social engineering experiments leave the exact people they purport to “help” unprepared for these roles as an aggregate. Since they’re libs and therefore “good” in their opinion, they don’t have to follow the rules they inflict on everyone else.

Exceptions abound, of course — but usually when a person exceeds the soft bigotry of low expectations they impose, they often have “left the plantation”, become conservative (or just think for themselves) and have to be put back in their place.

“Equal Opportunity” without the societal infrastructure is an abject failure. It only abuses the unwitting victims, and fills them with rage at a system they are not taught to understand.

94% of the murders committed by blacks are committed against other blacks. If you were to subtract the black population from the overall population and that group’s murder statistics, then the murder rate per 100,000 would drop from 4.8 to 2.2. I was shocked by that after I ran that calculation.

As I was researching that I also came across the fact that in Cincinatti the murder rate in 2010 was a record or near record but not a single white person was murdered. How about we address poverty, drugs, fatherlessness, and gangs with the same energy as gun grabbing, Piers?

Very true about Cinci, you should have heard all the hand wringing going on too. If I remember right, two of those were by the police, (those are usually in the stats) and the only two that got attention. The usual kind of attention.

You should have also heard how many times the police spoke about the frustrating silence and lack of co-operation from “witnesses” in the others. One local “leader” had the audacity to say the lack of closure in the cases proved that The Man didn’t care about black victims. The same leader who decries the unfairness of the % of jail pop. by race. Kind of a circular argument, great gig if you can get it.

Search “Over the Rhine” in Cinci. The University of Cincinnati Hospitals are a world class teaching hospital, but getting there is like driving through Beirut. It took a commie leaning city council about 30 years to virtually destroy a great city that had everything going for it.

Check out the Hamilton Co. prosecutor Joe Deters too, why he stays I have no idea (actually I do). And how many of Ohio’s death row inmates came from SW Ohio.
