Default ESPN suspends Rob Parker for saying RGIII isn't black enough

... and because he has a white fiancee, or something like that

ESPN announced Friday morning that commentator and Saturday First Take host Rob Parker has been suspended

Parker made racially charged remarks about RGIII during a Thursday appearance on First Take. He questioned the rookie quarterback's blackness, asking if RGIII was a "brother or is he a cornball brother."

"He's not really ... OK, he's black, he kinda does the thing, but he's not really down with the cause, he's not one of us. He's kinda black, but he's not really, like, the guy you really wanna hang out with because he's off to something else."
