ESPN suspends Rob Parker 30 days

Rob Parker has been suspended 30 days by ESPN for his controversial, race-related comments about Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III last week.

Parker, a commentator on ESPN’s “First Take” debate program, had been suspended indefinitely since last Friday, a day after he had suggested that Griffin, who like Parker is African-American, was a “cornball brother’’ who is “not really down with the cause. He’s not one of us.’’
