An ESPN radio personality could soon be looking for a new job.
That's after he made several racial comments about Robert Griffin III.
He made the comments after RG3 said, he won't be defined by his race.
ESPN Commentator Rob Parker said he questions whether RG3 is a true African American.
"He's not really. He's black, he does his thing, but he's not really down with the cause. He's not one of us. He's kind of black, but he's not really like the kind of guy you really want to hang out with," said Parker.
It's just part of the ESPN show "First Take" that's got many people riled up.
Show panelist Rob Parker started questioning RG3, bringing up race, politics, and even his family.
"We all know he has a white fiancee. then there was all this talk about he's a republican,"
"It's completely irrelevant, I mean he's a good football player and that should be the focus, that's it," said Baylor senior Preston Reppond.
ESPN Central Texas Program Director David Smoak has followed Robert Griffin from his early college days at Baylor till his recent days playing for the Redskins.
"RG3 in my 31 years in the business is as sincere, and as real a person as Iv ever covered," said Smoak.
And when he heard parker's controversial comments about the football star
"Is he a brother, or is he a cornball brother?" said Parker.
He and others were beside themselves.
"He has a history of doing things like this in the past when he was in Detroit," said Smoak
"Just because someone doesn't speak with slang or wear their clothes hanging half way down doesn't mean that they're not being their true self," said Baylor grad student Lloyd Weatherspoon.
With the news spreading like wildfire, ESPN suspended Parker.
"He got what he wanted, attention, I got what I wanted, he got suspended. Now I think he needs to get fired," said Smoak.
So how is this all affecting the Heisman Trophy winner?
He posted on Twitter "thanks for the support," and didn't mention a word about Parker.
"RG3 is not going to respond to him. He might at some point because he's going to be questioned about it, but right now he's trying to get healthy, play against Cleveland, and has no time to waist his time with an idiot like Rob Parker," said Smoak.
