Today in Racism vs. Not Racism

Lack of media coverage of deceased Latina music star Jenni Rivera = RACISM.

Black ESPN commentator calls Redskins QB Robert Griffin III ("RG3") a “cornball brother" because he's is engaged to a white woman, and could be a Republican = NOT RACISM.

I honestly never heard of Jenni Rivera until she died. Perhaps it's because I don't follow modern music at all.

And Parker's comments about RG3 (the shoo-in Offensive Rookie of the Year IMO) were reprehensible.

The comment form won't let me link to twitter, but based on ESPN's statement my guess is Parker's going to be suspended:

"The comments were inappropriate and we are evaluating our next steps."
