Tiger Design This A Future For African Americans In Professional Golf
TIGER DESIGN THIS A FUTURE FOR AFRICAN AMERICANS IN PROFESSIONAL GOLF ” LET’S MAKE A DEAL “
” DADDY WHAT ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE ”
YES you’re right
we repeat ourselves
again and again here
in the Black Box
just like a GREAT song
you listen to Endlessly
We are always looking for the next legitimate opportunity to call Tiger Woods’ Bluff. And they are Endless. The latest is particularly Fascinating as you will read. Tiger is designing his FIRST golf course. A very lucrative business for elite players who brand courses with their own look and feel and their name of course.
In return for the BIG bucks.
Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer have done a slew of them. John Daley probably never will unless it’s for golfers who drink a lot and are overweight. But no one is likely to make anywhere near as much money as will Tiger from his Tiger Woods Design company. Cachung cachung cachung.
And what a PERFECT locations for Tiger’s first design venture as he announced this week. North Carolina. The home of that other “colorless” and very famous athlete Michael Jordan. Now this new course in a mountainous area of North Carolina already known for many high quality read high priced golf courses – Tiger’s is going to be perched in the best location of all high above.
It will be like a bit of Heaven for those who can afford it, YES of course there will be very expensive homes built to surround this Golf Paradise. Tiger has promised to own and live in one of them if only occasionally.
And he swears as busy as he is making $$$$ he will be there again and again during the construction of the entire kit and caboodle ( when’s the last time you heard that term ??) AND BY THE WAY NO motorized golf carts will be allowed on Tiger’s course. You have to walk.. Sorry John Daley !
Now that you’ve got the essentials
let’s get down to REAL business
and where BASN comes in
Are any of you so naive ( we don’t want to say Stupid ) to think that for even one moment consciously or unconsciously that Tiger Woods is going to consider factoring African Americans in any way at all into HIS new golf course.
YOU MUST BE KIDDING. New Black daughter or not.
Well you might say how about in the number of construction jobs for African Americans in building the course nd the surrounding mansions. Or how about in the management of the new facility. Or how about Caddies especially since NO carts allowed. Even how about Tiger insuring African Americans in the kitchen and mowing the grass.
YOU MUST BE KIDDING.
The moment Tiger was to even once say the words AFRICAN American somebody might actually consider Tiger Woods an AFRICAN American. That could cost him a few endorsements dollars in his mind OR far worse more and more AFRICAN Americans asking him to do even more for his “own.”
What a NIGHTMARE for Tiger !
NO the reality is of course in a state like North Carolina with a relatively large African American population there will be Blacks working in the kitchen and cutting the grass and in the locker room picking up after the rich WHITE golfers playing at Tiger’s Golf Course. There may even be a few African Americans with construction jobs. Low level construction jobs but NOT because Tiger does anything about it but because that is what “normally” happens.
The Bottom Line is Tiger’s first signature golf course will be just like EVERY exclusive Golf Course in America NO they can’t legally keep AFRICAN Americans out still AFRICAN AMERICAN NEED NOT APPLY. It will be the very same way at Tiger’s first golf course and on his 100th golf course.
Because Tiger doesn’t give a …………….
LET’S MAKE A DEAL TIGER ……..
We will get off your case which may get quite heavy as BASN grows and becomes a POWERHOUSE in Sports Media IF you will do just one thing ………
Announce that your company Tiger Woods Design will design and build with investors a first rate golf course in an urban Black setting specifically to encourage young African American boys and girls to take up Golf and do it on the kind of course that will both bring them JOY and be of a calibre that they can go on to become first rate amateur and professional golfers of the future.
Is that really too much to ask Tiger ??
FAR FAR TOO MUCH
from Tiger Woods
