Time For The Left To 
Finally Come Up
With An Official
'Are YOU Black Enough?'

They could then have one of their elite guys quickly give the test to any black person that rises to national prominence.  That way they could just dispense with embarrassing public displays like this, in which ESPN's Rob Parker wonders out loud if Robert Griffen III is 'black enough':

Now, being one of those supposedly virulently racist Conservatives and all,
 I'm probably not the best guy to opine on the subject of who's 'black enough', 
but this damn good QB looks purty black to me.

Parker: "My question, which is just a straight, honest question: is he a brother or is he a cornball brother?" 
Cari Champion: "What does that mean? 
Parker: "He's not really ... OK, he's black, he kinda does the thing, but he's not really down with the cause, he's not one of us. He's kinda black, but he's not really, like, the guy you really wanna hang out with because he's off to something else." 
Champion: "Why is that your question?" 
Parker: "Because that's just how I want to find out about him. I don't know because I keep hearing these things. We all know he has a white fiancée then there was all this talk about he was a Republican. There's no information at all. I'm just trying to dig deeper into why he has an issue because we did find out with Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods was like, "I got black skin but don't call me black.'"
Rob Parker was just trying to helpfully remind his fellow Libs they can't let the nation embrace RG3 yet; they still haven't vetted his politics.

Hey Griffen is from Texas.  He could be one of those darn inauthentically black Republicans.  So guys like Rob Parker and Toure on MSNBC want to 'check' Griffen out and make sure he holds all the correct political views before they give him the official "Baby, You Are Black Enough!' stamp of approval.  

I mean, God forbid a black guy who misses a few questions on the the politically correct "Accepted Political Beliefs of The Official National Black Famous People" checklist becomes a national superstar before the elites have thoroughly vetted his politics.  

As Stacy Dash found out awhile back, All Nationally Famous Black People are supposed to be on board with a single monolithic political view.  And if they are not..........SERIOUS QUESTIONS WILL BE RAISED ABOUT THEM. 

This kind of stupid identity politics refuses to die, where arrogant Liberals assume they KNOW what a person's political beliefs SHOULD be the moment they discern the skin color, the gender, and the class.  And if they find out the person has the 'wrong' political beliefs for their skin, gender or class, then it's time to ask what's 'wrong' with them, why they are race/gender/class traitors, etc. etc.  

If RG3 is a Republican, and he doesn't hold all the 'correct' beliefs Liberals think a black American 'should', there's absolutely NOTHING wrong with HIM.  There is, however, PLENTY wrong with those who keep displaying the kind of stupid crap we're seeing here from Rob Parker. 

UPDATE:  Allahpundit at Hot Air sums up pretty good why Rob Parker is in trouble; not for playing identity politics per se; that goes on ALL THE TIME.  He's in hot water for PICKING THE WRONG TARGET:
You know what’s interesting about this clip? This guy’s going to catch hell for what he said, not because his test of racial authenticity is so cartoonish and clammy (which it is) but because he picked the wrong guy to demagogue. 
If you want to call a minority conservative an Uncle Tom, make sure it’s someone for whom the left has no use, like Clarence Thomas or Allen West. The right will be angry if you do, but no worries — most Americans will never hear about it, or if they do, the usual outrage over racial stereotyping will be absent from the press coverage.  
Instead this dummy picked on the savior of Washington football, the most exciting thing to happen to ‘Skins fans, left and right, in decades. There are few ways that a “cornball brother” can earn absolution from the Authenticity P.D. but winning the Super Bowl is one. And the irony is, I’m not even sure that RGIII actually is a Republican. I’ve seen that rumor floated but never any quote from the man himself; if I’m wrong, send me the link and I’ll update.  
We’ll know soon, though: Now that Parker’s raised the specter of racial impurity, the pressure will be on Griffin to admit that, yes indeed, he’s one of the enlightened who voted Democratic last month.


  1. Your efforts to somehow counter the right's reputation as old white guy foot-in-mouth racists is truly pathetic. Hey - I know, you should post pics of black Republicans or white female Republicans to demonstrate how your party isn't full of misogynists and racists.

    Oh, right -that didn't work. Maybe spray on a tan there, homey. LOL.

    1. Stupid identity politics are stupid. If the Left would stop doing this kind of stupid crap, they'd quit embarrassing themselves.

      BTW, what do you think about what Parker had to say? Is RGIII a real brother?

      Weigh in!

    2. Yes, you really do know what Party & what political views all the REAL black people & all the REAL women subscribe too, don't you?

      You couldn't parody yourself if you tried.

    3. Weaksauce all around. You lost the election because of the very things I mentioned in my first comment. Also, you're always wrong about everything. Always. Deal with it, guy who learned nothing and never will. LOL!

    4. So is RGIII up to snuff? Does he pass the 'Black Enough' test?

      I guess it'll take a while to find out. Rob Parker was just suspended by ESPN. :(

    5. Yeah, it was dumb. That's obvious. So what? Slow newsday at Breitbart or something?

      Pretty sad.

  2. Anonymous is pretty sad. An apologist for the most racist, race-baiting party in history. MLK,jr. had plenty of flaws, but he also had the idea that men should be judged for the content of their characters, not the color of their skin. Yet it is people like you, Anonymous, who tell us that folks like RG3 or Herman Cain or Thomas Sowell or Alan West or Condoleezza Rice are not "Black enough" because they don't march in lockstep with the other peasants on the democratic plantation.
    You leftists accuse the Republican in general, and the TEA Party specifically of being racist and exclusionary and all white in spite of photographic evidence to the contrary. A conservative black congressman appointed to the Senate is labelled as a token. Tell me, Anonymous, is Al notsoSharpton a token? He is the only person of color on the oh, so diverse lineup at MSNBC.
    Anonymous, you are not only sad, but pathetic, as is anyone who projects their racism on the Republican party or the Libertarian party. Hey, if someone doesn't agree with you and your party right down the line, then they aren't black enough, or hispanic enough, or not a real woman. Or, they're an Uncle Tom or an Aunt Jemima or a race traitor. These are the words of posters at Democratic Underground, Huffington Post, The Daily Kos, Sparky. So, you can take your condescension and stick it where the sun don't shine.

    1. So some guy on ESPN suddenly represents every Liberal? Suddenly it's a syndrome across the board?

      You're a completely lost and deluded ignoramus apparently quite content to ignore the fact that both pre and post election Republicans were equating Obama voters with parasites, moochers, sex-crazed coeds, welfare queens and lazy "takers" - while admitting that women and minorities cost Romney the election.

      You can continue laughably pretending the two don't connect, but it's not even a dog whistle - it's right out in the open like a big zit that you Teabilly butt-hurters keep trying to slather with make up.


  3. Anonymous, do you object so strongly when some guy or gal on MSNBC purports to speak for Liberals and represents all Rebuplicans and/or conservatives as racist, sexist, homophobic Islamophobes.
    And you, you completely lost and deluded commie puke of an ignoramus ignore the fact that many, in fact a huge number of Obama voters are in fact parasites and moochers. As for sex-crazed coeds, you have Sandra Fluke to thank for that, as the sorry slut CHOSE to go to Georgetown University, an institution run by the Catholic Church, thereby knowing that they would not pay for abortions, abortifacients, or contraception, and then whined in front of a televised non-hearing that she could not afford x number of dollars per year for contraception. The number she quoted would have paid for 6 condoms daily 7 days a week. So, anonymous, what kind of coed would need 6 condoms daily 7 days a week?
    You can object all you want, but the only reason so many blacks voted for Obama was the color of his skin. Many, if not most of them did not even know what any of the issues were. All they saw was the color of Obama's skin, and all they heard were the commielibs on MSNBC, and the broadcast networks promulgating lie after lie about how racist republicans were for wanting the blacks to play by the same rules as everyone else. You can deny reality all you want, it won't change the fact that there was vote fraud on a large scale in Philadelphia and other Pennsylvania towns, and in fact most of the big cities.

    1. You're a racist.

    2. You'll have to excuse anonymous, there are some slaves whose ambition doesn't reach further than being promoted to overseer. The idea of leaving the plantation is utterly foreign.

    3. Nothing says not racist like spouting racist boilerplate. Well done, you outmoded rednecks.
