What if Jason Collins Admitted He Was a Republican?

29 Apr


Seriously.  What do you think that the reaction would have been?  I bet Stacey Dash has a pretty good idea.  Who knows, he may have even been called a “cornball brother ” by some:



Rob Parker of ESPN appeared on First Take and discussed that Griffin might be a “cornball brother” and “not one of us.”

“My question, which is just a straight honest question: is he a brother, or is he a cornball brother?” Parker asked to much confusion among the show’s other participants. “Well, [that] he’s black, he kind of does his thing, but he’s not really down with the cause, he’s not one of us.

“He’s kind of black, but he’s not really the guy you’d really want to hang out with, because he’s off to do something else.”

“I want to find about him,” Parker said. “I don’t know because I keep hearing these things. We all know he has a white fiancee. Then there was all this talk about he’s a Republican, which there’s no information at all.

I bet it would not have been pretty. Gay is one thing…but admitting that you are a Republican is a sin not soon forgiven.

    By the way, what about if he admitted he was a libertarian?

      He would definitely still be a cornball brother. And anti-women, anti-poor, etc. Because libertarians hate government and government is benevolent. Although libertarians do score some points with their hands-off approach to drugs and other personal choices that Democrats like.

      What do you think?

        I think probably a lot of newspapers and tv would show their bad point of view about him.

    No question. Any time a black person goes public with Conservative political views they are attacked and called derogatory names. Very sad and unfortunate that there is still intolerance at this level against black people. I’m not real sure why it is that they are not allowed to believe in whatever they choose without being attacked.
