I didn't know it but apparently THE BLACK COMMUNITY is upset that Tiger Woods didn't commit adultery with a sister. Here's AP:
Amid all the headlines generated by Tiger Woods' troubles -- the puzzling car accident, the suggestions of marital turmoil and multiple mistresses -- little attention has been given to the race of the women linked with the world's greatest golfer. Except in the black community.
When three white women were said to be romantically involved with Woods in addition to his blonde, Swedish wife, blogs, airwaves and barbershops started humming, and Woods' already tenuous standing among many blacks took a beating.
On the nationally syndicated, Woods was the butt of jokes all week.
"Thankfully, Tiger, you didn't marry a black woman. Because if a sister caught you running around with a bunch of white hoochie-mamas," one parody suggests in song, she would have castrated him.
I don't know. Tiger Woods doesn't really consider himself black--or maybe he does. I don't have any idea, and, honestly. I thought this debate was much more interesting when I was 24, then I do now at 34. I'm not clear on what it would mean if any of his mistresses were black. How would that be better? Would that be "empowering?" Would that be good for our daughters?
I just don't get it. Any of it. Who models their marriage after some dude who plays golf? Who runs around wishing that Tiger Woods would include some sisters in his harem? Who are these people? Why don't I know them?
