Tiger Woods Is Not Black. Who Knew?

ESPN has lost their collective mind.

To illustrate, here is a segment from FoxNews with a portion of a press conference after Woods played a round of golf at a tournament. The question and the response begins at 0:25:

REPORTER: I think a lot of people, especially people of color, immigrants feel threatened by him and his policies. He’s thrown himself into sports debates (inaudible,) Lebron James, the national anthem,… Um, what do you say to people who might find it interesting that you have a friendly relationship with him?

WOODS: Well, he’s the President of the United States. You have to respect the office and no matter who is in the office, umm….you may like, dislike umm….the personality or the politics but we all must respect the office.

The following day, Max Kellerman and Stephen A. Smith on ESPN lost their minds over the comment. Kellerman accuses Woods of not thinking and Smith said Woods “is not black.”

First, let’s examine Woods’ statement.

When Barack Obama was president, we did not respect him as a person. We didn’t like him or his policies. There was a movement within some circles at the time that Obama was “not my president” or “NMP.” We would see it sometimes on posts and blogs and we never understood that sentiment. The question we always asked was “if Obama is not the President of the United States, who is?”

We don’t have to respect the person sitting behind the Resolute Desk, but we should and do respect the Constitutionally created Office of the President.

However, there is something more behind the Woods’ remarks.

Tiger Wood’s father, Earl Woods, served in the military and retired as a lieutenant colonel. It is axiomatic in the military that you respect the person’s rank. You don’t necessarily have to respect the person holding that rank, but you darn sure better respect the rank itself.

Neither Kellerman nor Smith ever served in the military. Not a single moment. They would not have learned the same type of respect for the rank / office of the president that was instilled into Tiger Woods.

It is that type of ignorance and ridiculous accusations that leads to the horribly obnoxious, wrongful and full of hubris that managed to slip out of the peanut sized brains of Kellerman and Smith.

There is more.

Both Smith and Kellerman are died in the wool liberals. They both lean so far to the left their elbows touch the floor. To display the “tolerance” that the left always demands of others, both these guys think Tiger Woods is not a black man because he thinks differently than they do.

Last time we looked, Tiger Woods, or any person alive, needed to have approval of another person to be the race and ethnicity they were born with. Who the heck are these clowns to judge whether Woods is “black” or “black enough?”

ESPN is bleeding viewers and many people think it is due to the politicization of the network. To counter that, last year ESPN told staff to back off of the political commentary. This year, ESPN’s new president, Jimmy Pitaro, let people know that ESPN was breaking away from politics.

Apparently Kellerman and Smith never got that memo.

This type of incident really bothers us. Kellerman and Smith displayed some of the worst type of racism we can imagine. They expected (demanded?) that Woods walk in lock step with them and if he didn’t well, then is is not really a black man.

That’s not “tolerance” people want, but it sure is ignorance that people get to see.
