Is Tiger Woods Getting Religion

IS TIGER WOODS GETTING RELIGION

ONLY IF HE SAYS THOSE 4 MAGIC WORDS

THE REAL TIGER WOODS ??

( IS THAT A BLACK POWER SALUTE )

We may be seeing a ‘new’ Tiger Woods

4 years of pounding him in the Box

may have Worked

but the evidence of

The New Tiger Woods is

Very Inconclusive

In fact it based on just one item from last Friday. Tiger in Anaheim, California opening The Tiger Woods Learning Center in the neighborhoods where he grew up. Not that he ever spent much time there. Anointed a Golf Prodigy at 3.

Still Tiger admitted some Truth at the very well Orchestrated opening Friday which included the Ultimate VIP Bill Clinton. He actually said he had basically given nothing of any significance back to the “community” until now.

As Woods admitted Friday …

He primarily staged junior golf clinics around the country, later assembling selected kids to attend a clinic in Orlando, Fla. He referred to it as a “circus act,” breezing in and out of town and leaving kids little more than memories.

In others words …

Nothing more than great PR for Tiger. Which most of the Dutiful Media Sucked Up proclaiming Tiger the Greatest Humanitarian since Jesus Christ in recent years for absolutely no reason at All. Because sadly that is what most of the Media does. SUCKS up to POWER and Celebrity.

Here is what else Tiger said Friday ..

“This is by far the greatest thing that has ever happened to me,” said Woods, a winner of 57 tournaments worldwide and 10 major championships. “This is bigger than golf. This is bigger than anything I’ve done on the golf course. Because we will be able to shape lives.”

And to make sure no one would accuse him

of Modesty Tiger called his Good Deed ..

” A momentous occasion.”

OK so far so Good

Here is the Problem

Until and unless Tiger Woods identifies himself with the African American community in a decisive way this is Window Dressing. Better than doing Nothing as he did before. But still avoiding the one place he could do the Most Good.

And to make it Worse

is obvious Cynicism

Why won’t Tiger Woods

ever say

these FOUR magic words ….

I AM AFRICAN AMERICAN

Because nothing has Changed.

Tiger does not want to see himself as African American 1) it’s not good for marketing him for Maximum Profit either in the USA or around the world, and far worse here is our view 2) Tiger accepts an unarticulated view that African Americans are considered “inferior” still in many Quarters and Tiger Woods who sees himself as Superior dreads anything that might deflate his Giant Ego.

Case in Point

While virtually every notable African American chose to attend Coretta Scott King’s Funeral last week and lots of important White Folk like Presidents Bush 1, Bush 2, Clinton and Carter the most obvious individual missing was The Great Tiger Woods. Just as ne “misses” any major event that has a hint of being seen as clearly African American in nature.

Remember how Tiger refused

to attend

Jackie Robinson’s 50th Anniversary

of his Entry into the Majors.

And don’t bother trying to find any Black History Month event Tiger Woods has ever associated himself with. There aren’t any. And unless Tiger gets a whole lot more Religion than the little bit he showed in Anaheim on Friday don’t ever expect to see him ever associate himself with Black History Month.

So all the Black Brothers & Sisters in the Media

who worship Tiger for his Blackness

can keep fooling themselves

because Tiger never

admits to It.

Even if the Official

American Express Tiger Woods

Bobble Head Doll makes Tiger

unmistakably BLACK.
