'A Preservation Thing': Tiger Woods' marital woes widen his distance from African-Americans
StarTribune.com ^ | 12/5/09 | Jesse Washington/AP

Posted on 12/05/2009 11:52:11 AM PST by ButThreeLeftsDo

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 Tom Joyner radio show, Woods was the butt of jokes all week.

The race of the mistresses did not even cross my mind. Of course the way this is going, it is only a matter of days before a black mistress appears.

He doesn’t seem to have ever identified as black anyway, other than in a PR way sometimes.

Tiger isn't Black. He is an Asian Buddhist.

Always love how black folks consider anyone with just a little bit of black blood to be “one of them” UNLESS they have a last name like “Suarez.” Most Dominicans, and many Puerto Ricans are just as black or blacker than Tiger, yet blacks seem to make exceptions when claiming Afro/Mulatto Latinos.

I don’t know, but blacks criticizing Tiger Woods for liking Caucasian women seems.... RACIST.

Or am I missing something here?

Where were they on O.J.?

from African-Americans?

Tiger doesn’t consider himself “African-American” and indeed he isn’t.

Oh, for... The only people who seem to notice race anymore are the very ones who demonstrated for equality.

Would it have been better if Tiger had cheated with black women? I think that’s what they’re implying. Cause, you know, a white woman just couldn’t satisfy Tiger I suppose. Racists.

The author:

NEW YORK (AP) — Jesse Washington, entertainment editor for The Associated Press and a former magazine editor, has been named race and ethnicity writer for the news cooperative.

Appears to be another racist with his comments...

Yeah but at least OJ killed his Caucasian woman. Methinks had Tiger done the same, me might have more support from the AA community.

I wonder how his standing among Thais is doing. I don't see much difference between black women who object to black men being with white women and white men who object to black men being with white women. Both are out of line and should consider being with each other if they're feeling left out LOL.

Tigers three girl freinds are white. No blacks need apply. Though Ms Grubbs seems to be part Asian or Hispanic

Tiger is mostly black and doesn’t go out w his own

a study published this year in Sociological Quarterly showed that blacks are less likely to actually date outside their race than are other groups.

That being said, I have seen an upsurge in black women dating white men over the past five years or so. It doesn't quite approach the level of white men with Asian women (to the point where Asian guys REALLY have a right to complain), but has been noticeable, especially due to black women's traditional antipathy to race mixing. You also see a lot more black American women with foreign black men.

He was never that huge in the black community. The one woman may not be all that white - not that it really matters. The whole thing his sad but he is and has always been a punk.

His father dumped his first wife who was probably black. So he did not have a really greast role model there.

I thought I read once where he is 1/4 black, 1/4 white and 1/2 Asian.

But, like the Kenyan, playing up his “black” part opens that affirmative action door.

Was his father Earl Woods black? I know his mother was Thai.

Tiger is “blacker” than Barack Obama by blood I think, except by marrying a black woman, Obama’s black street cred was higher.

I was in a restaurant the other day. An AA guy in a tie who looked a LOT like Tiger was having lunch. He seemed like a pleasant guy. It probably will suck now to look like Tiger now.

It's obvious that Tiger Woods has never really identified with the African-American culture and considers himself what he is; a heterosexual, multi-racial man that prefers 'white' women.

I'm sure this is not a problem to Tiger Woods or something he believes he needs to defend, and I doubt that he will. He has enough to deal with as a result of his philandering. That the 'Black community' is finding fault with Tiger's choice of mistresses, based on their race, is inconsequential.

The whole messaih and adulation thing the Tiger fan boys have is a lot like Obama Obots. The difference is Tiger is very accomplished at something. The other one is good at lying and conning people.

Well, I’ll rise to Tiger’s defense...Though not condoning infidelity, his behavior is understandable. When he married, his wife was young..a nanny..a trophy piece..actually a blonde bimbo...Tiger grew intellectually..while his wife was kept busy producing the next generation of Woods ( and Irons?). He was unable to have a serious, intellectual conversation with her abut anything..business..politics..world affairs..so he naturally gravitated to intelligent women with whom he could have stimulating intellectual discussions...I mean, just look at their pics...no way these women are boobs.

The writer sort of answers his own question in the first paragraph of the article. He imples that a black woman would have “gone ghetto” (Tiger’s words, not mine) on him instantly. I’ve never seen, or read about, a rich black woman or a black woman married to a rich, black man that stood as an individual. They all had to bring the whole “black thing” with them. Everything to them is racist if the world does not go their way. Example: Halle Barry - when she didn’t get a particular part; Oprah - just about every day on every subject. What male, of “any” race, wants to deal with that on a daily basis?
