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

Rob Parker should not be fired for that comment. Yes it is an ignorant comment. Yes he should not be reaffirming to black youth they need to act "black." Why does everyone feel the need to regularly eviscerate the freedom of speech? Sure go ahead and say what you want today but you will not have a job tomorrow.

ESPN probably just doesn't want to get sued. For my part I hope he doesn't lose his job over this. I doubt he should have been hired in the first place with such an adolescent point of view but thats besides the point. Ratings should decide whether radio and tv personalities have a job not political correctness.
