So the columnist Rob Parker questions whether RG3 is "really black" because he "refuses to be defined by race," has a white fiancee, and may possible be (gasp!!) a Republican. Then again, Parker says, RG3 has braids. This is an age-old discussion in black America. But the rug may be int he process of being pulled out from under it due to changing times. Steven A. Smith has (gasp!) some insightful things to add to the discussion. Worth watching to the end.
UPDATE: ESPN just suspended Parker.
This should be taught in all history classes:
