More controversy from embracing debate. Rob Parker has been suspended by the Mothership from comments stemming yesterday’s episode. Here are some of the comments he  made regarding Redskins QB Robert Griffin:

“We keep hearing this so it makes me wonder deeper about him. I’ve talked to some people in Washington D.C. My question, which is just a straight, honest question, is he a brother or is he a cornball brother”  He’s not really.

Okay, he’s black, but he’s not really down with the cause…We all know he has a white fiancee. People always talk about how he’s Republican.

There’s no information at all. I’m just trying to dig deeper into why he has an issue” — I really have no clue what this guy is even talking about.
