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.
