    You are acting really childish, did it ever occur to you maybe no one defended the racist rhetoric because they didn't agree with it? You seem to be desperately attempting to paint all liberals with some sort of racist attitude but it just isn't true.

    So far I stayed away because I have absolutely no clue who these people are which suprises me as I see DC thrown around in this thread a lot and I live here and have never heard of these people.

    And for the record I am a socialist, and I am married to an African-American who gets a great deal of flack from her family for "acting white" which I oppose, I think it is racist and stupid for people to act like that....however me, her, and her family all vote democratic so I don't see where this is some partisan line issue as it seems there is an implication of here.

    The ESPN guy is representative of an intolerant attitude by some liberals. That intolerance is manifested in racist commentary. For example.

    Clarence Thomas was called a ‘house nigga’. Allan West and Cain were called Oreo by a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. Condi Rice was a victim of a racist political ‘cartoon’. Jesse Jackson once described Sen. Barack Obama as acting "white". Stacy Dash supported Romney and was criticized for it. The main criticism is that she was Black therefore she was stupid for voting republican. Other examples exist.

    Oh, don't get your panties in a bunch, dude.

    1. I'm not painting "all" liberals as being anything...but I am painting my fellow liberal forum members as being reluctant to come out in this thread to disagree with a national figure who makes idiotic racists remarks. And that, in no way, implies that those reluctant members are racist.

    2. I don't know who Parker is either. I don't watch ESPN. But that doesn't prevent me from recognizing the boneheaded remarks he made or from calling the guy out for making them.

    3. For the record, my older son's girlfriend is black, my ex-wife is married to a third-generation Hispanic (he's also a good friend of mine), one of my older brothers is married to a Japanese, my first sexual experience was at age 17 with a black librarian...oh, and another brother is gay. But all of that equals...nothing.

    4. Something you should know about me...unless I make a public statement of agreement on this forum, the attitudes of other forum members do not apply to me. My statements and my opinions are only my own.

    The fact is...I was right. The liberal forum members are staying away from this thread in droves.

    I'm not surprised.

    I don't watch ESPN, so I don't know much about this Rob Parker...but from the report in the OP, I'd say he's a dumbass racist hack. Why does he still have a job?
    What would you like us to say? That he's an ignorant asshole who should be fired? OK. He's an ignorant asshole who should be fired.

    I love righteous indignation from the Right when something like this happens, however. When it's one of their own, they become either silent or defensive.

    Thank you. You are the first and you are to be commended...despite your attempt to temper your words with an inaccurate deflection.

    If it wasn't such a regular occurrence and so extraordinarily pathetic, I would laugh at how funny it is that people continue to press the idea of what it means to 'be' black. Racial stereotypes are so awesome...especially when they are self imposed.

    thanks, although the 'deflection' was actually pretty accurate.
