Paul Mooney's perspective about the Tiger Woods scandal.
I like Paul but he was off-base on this one, IMO.
No way did Tiger's publicized infidelities and losing endorsements give him any kind of "wake up call."
Tiger's Black father had been married to an Asian woman (his mother.) Subsequently, Tiger was raised in an home environment which "embraced" all of his ethnic backgrounds: Black, Asian, Am. Indian and Caucasian....Thus, his self-identifying statement: "CauBlinasian."
When, if ever, did Tiger have a Black girlfriend? Had he not been schooled and socialized with Whites his whole life?.....Tiger's socio-economic background wasn't like Venus and Serena's....Tiger didn't come from the "Inner City."
And, if Fuzzy Zoeller's comments about him in 1997 didn't let him know that no matter what level he achieves in golf, he's still just a "n!gg3r" to them, then his white wife and his white mistresses won't either.
That was his point, that's why he said he got his wake up call , Tiger knows who he is now, not Caublinasian and all the other stuff he was calling himself. In America Tiger is a negro.
In america this how they see him this how the media potray him
whatever he maybe to them he is one of us .....................

.......Its just unfortunate that Paul didn't mention the Zoeller incident during that informal radio interview; but I agee with you wholeheartedly sister cherryblossom. If that wasn't a wake up call, nothing will be.
I have always like paul since day one.......... go to see him all the time @ Caroline's
"that white chick beat the black out of him and the asian part crashed into that tree"........lol
What he is saying is what he has always said......represent your black self and stop trying to please whitey because they will never respect you! They might like you for a minute, but they ain't gonna invite you to meet their daughter..
Even Cheatah, i mean Tiger admitted to only getting married to a white woman to boost his IMAGE!
I even think that his caddy was trying to extort him for standing by his side. Not of his own will, but somebody behind the scenes that got to him which is why Tiger finally dumped him....
He was Cablasian even when he was young, before the fame and fortune. He wasn't raised "blk" so I really can't see him changing his perception of hiself b/c of how whites view him now. He can't be shocked back into blk reality b/c blackness wasn't apart of his reality.
Blackness is part of is reality, after all his father was Black a man. The problem is that the self-hatred that he inherited from his father made him not embrace his Blackness. He is probably one of those Negros who wished that he wasn't related to Black people at all.
In the Spirit of Sankofa,
.......Very true. Its a case of calling a spade and spade, regardless of what the spade thinks. To be in denial is powerful and to be in self denial is absolutely powerful. But at the end of the day, week and year(s)..........Tiger Woods is a black man by world and global standards, moreover an African American.
Indeed, It's pointless, but I don't blame him too much, his attitude toward Black people are often the results of interracial marriages.
