Canned Cornball

Sometimes, stupidity is its own reward:
ESPN’s Rob Parker’s comments on yesterday’s “First Take,” which questioned Griffin’s standing as a black man due to his white fiancĂ©e and the quarterback’s rumored Republican leanings, has led to the commentator’s suspension. Shortly after Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch broke the news of Parker’s suspension via Twitter, ESPN made a statement on the issue.

“Following yesterday’s comments, Rob Parker has been suspended until further notice,” ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys tweeted. “We are conducting a full review.”

The suspension comes amid an uproar concerning Parker’s comments on the morning show that were directed at Griffin not for his on-field play, but for his standing in the black community.
When someone doesn't want to be defined, why do others always insist on doing it for them?
