Meet ESPN First Take’s resident racist Rob Parker. He is from planet Mars and believes that it is OK to make racist remarks on national television about Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. Initially he didn’t back down from his comments, even retweeting people who supported him on Twitter, then six days later (today) he issued a half ass apology┬áthat’s as believable as Al Gore inventing the Internet. It is the Christmas season and New Year’s is coming up so I’m sure Rob was just too busy to think about what he said and issue an apology in a reasonable amount of time. Those among us that haven’t said something blatantly racist on a live ESPN TV show about one of the greatest rookie quarterback phenom’s ever may cast the first stone.

Naturally Parker’s comments caused Twitter to explode so I figured it would be fun to see what some people had to say on this issue.

What do you think about this issue? I assume the majority of us think that he should be fired considering ESPN has fired people for way less. What forms of alternative punishment do you think would be acceptable in this case? Be creative and put your thoughts in the comments section.
