Tiger Woods Needs A Little Of That Earl Wisdom That Made Him Great

Luther Campbell, the man whose booty-shaking madness made the U.S. Supreme Court stand up for free speech, gets as nasty as he wants to be for Miami New Times. In this special edition, Luke thinks Tiger Woods let Stevie Williams off easy.

Tiger Woods could really use his dad right now. He was the guy who guided Tiger. Tiger's father made sure the greatest golfer in the game did not forget how the sport's history of discrimination against African-Americans. Without Earl Woods by his side, Tiger has lost his identity.

He's too worried about coming off as the angry black golfer, so that's why he's telling the media he is not mad at Stevie Williams for using a racial slur to describe him. Tiger's like, "Oh, Stevie didn't mean what he said. He was just playing." In reality, Tiger should be mad as hell.

Tiger should have said Williams was dead-ass wrong. But then he would have been criticized by sports pundits for calling out the racism that still stains the PGA. Tiger is scared to deal with black and white issues because he doesn't want to be compared to Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson.

That's what non-African Americans tend to do when a black man points out the disparities in race relations today. "Oh he's just playing the race card like Jesse and Al," they say. After recovering from the scandal of his failed marriage, the last thing Tiger wants to do is create more controversy.

But Tiger cannot ignore the history of Afican-American golfers who did not get the opportunity he was given. The world's greatest golfer has lost the rage and the passion that his dad instilled in him. Tiger needs to get back to his roots.

He needs to remember when no black was allowed on the golf course and set Stevie straight.

You cannot have rage in the game of golf. You will lose your concentration and miss the putt. Uncle Luke, maybe rage and hate will work in football where you have to rip the quarterback's head off. But golf is a game where you have to be real easy going. 


Two days ago you went after a black man that was involved in scandal involving women and you compared him to the KKK. Today you encourage a half black man that was involved in a scandal involving women and say he's not acting black enough and to be filled with rage.

You are exactly what my name says you are.
