I liked the 4th definition of the term the best:

Quote:
4. Cornball Brother 137 up, 326 down
A brother who has balls made out of corn.
"You won't be having kids if you hook up with my brother, he's a cornball brother"
I think this is actually what Parker meant by his comments.....

Good he deserved to be fired the first time... If he were white he would have been stoned by the first comment. Throw him and that c$^# jamele hill out of there.

Rob Parker should be fired because it's a racist and belittling comment on many levels.

He reinforced stereotypes, projected a perceived notion of 'blackness' on a successful African American, displayed his racism by suggesting someone is less black because of who they marry, and clearly shows he knows little about politics and votes based on the candidates skin color.

Maybe Parker is more black in his mind, but he's also now fired too.

It's more of a problem in the south and in America than in any other place in the world.

I still don't know what "blackness" means. Usually, there are opposite terms as well. What would "whiteness" mean?
