How fast would that firing take place? uh- in about 2.5 seconds.
I don't think Berman should be fired for that either.

RGIII is an excellent role model for black youth. He is smart, well-spoken, and seems like a genuine person. Unless he is carrying guns into clubs, selling pot or getting caught with hookers Rob Parker should be worried about the black athletes that are actually poor role models for children.

I am defending Rob Parker's right to be racist. His only criteria for disliking RGIII is that his fiancee has European ancestry. I would rather know what he thinks and be able to change the channel than support a show with a closet racist.
