    ESPN Personality Calls RGIII An Uncle Tom

    Rob Parker went on the air and decided to question Robert Griffin III's "blackness."

    Yesterday, Rob Parker went on ESPN's First Take and decided to talk about RGIII's "blackness."

    To illustrate just how ridiculous this is, even noted hyperbolic/controversial statement-maker Stephen A. Smith felt it went too far.

    An ESPN spokesman has released a brief statement through Twitter.

    But it was star NFL running back Arian Foster who had the best take.

    Well said, Arian.

    UPDATE: ESPN has suspended Parker.
