Good riddance. I watched the segment live and wondered when Black Theology has become a part of ESPN programming. He should, of course, be FIRED.

Now, what would happen if this Parker idiot said Luck wasn't white enough? That's the parallel.
there's a big double standard, if he said that about luck people would just laugh it off. it is what it is, and don't know if that will ever change

Someone on ESPN said something stupid and it wasn't Stephen A or Skip? That's sort of refreshing. This of course means, however, Skip is going to have to one-up him in the say-something-stupid-for-a-reaction department.

Anyway, he said something really stupid but shouldn't necessarily get fired over it. There is a double standard - no one is denying that. But, why does he have to be recognized as black? Why can't he just be recognized as a great quarterback and athlete?
