As a matter of full disclosure, I must admit that I have never been a fan of your commentary. For some time I have been of the opinion that you are a soundbite looking for an audience. I have watched you on various ESPN shows over the years, most notably First Take. I have watched you attempt to spar with the likes of Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless and have been routinely unimpressed. Comments you made yesterday confirmed my opinion of not only your commentary but, as much as one can glean from a TV segment, you as a person.
For reasons only you could articulate, you called into question the blackness of Robert Griffin III. You went so far as to essentially grade his blackness. His white fiancée made him less black, while his braids made him more so. This was your response to Griffin’s statement to the press the day before about wanting to be considered and recognized for more than his race.
