Is Tiger Woods Black Again? Rush Limbaugh Says So

I'm not going to say too much more about his craziness, Rush Limbaugh's latest asinine drivel other than to point you to Field Negro's post on Rush Limbaugh's Tiger Woods commentary and to note that despite claiming he's not a racist, that he's color blind, Limbaugh loves talking about black people in contrast to white people and painting black folk with a broad brush. Also notice that in Rush's mind black people are more than an ethnic group, they are a political group.
It didn't take long did it? But now A-merry-ca is reminding Tiger's black ass that he is black again. (I was wondering when I was going to get a chance to post that *pic ArtMaggot sent me a few days ago. Well, as it turns out, I didn't have to wait long. Remember Dave Chappelle's joke about the "Race Draft"? I keep seeing it over and over in my head.) Leave it to Rush to say out loud what a bunch of folks from a certain segment of the population is thinking. Apparently Rush doesn't think Tiger is helping the black frame of mind.
".. Limbaugh said, “Black unemployment is terrible. The black frame of mind is terrible. They’re depressed. They’re down, Obama not doing anything for them. How’s that hoax and change working for ya? They’re all livid. They thought there was going to be an exact 180 degree economic reversal, and it’s done nothing but get bad for everybody, but they’re especially upset about it because they look at him as one of them, and now they feel abandoned, and I’m sure Tiger Woods’ choice of females not helping them out with their attitudes either.”' [Link]
Huh? First of all fatso, Tiger is Calabanasian or whatever the f#^* he likes to call himself, so please don't try to dump him off on us now. (Read more at Field Negro)
I swear I think Limbaugh must get up every morning and take a jackass pill, and I guess Field Negro cuts Limbaugh no slack on the weight loss. Normally, I'd take issue with calling someone "fatso," but it's hard to care about Limbaugh. Really, really, hard.

As for Tiger, well, I never stopped thinking he was black because I knew the one drop law would go back on the books as soon as he screwed up and he's got a helluva lot more than one drop of black blood. But yeah, Tiger doesn't want to be black by American standards.

So, why won't Limbaugh honor that since he claims he sees no color, that he doesn't see race? And this is your problem, Limbaugh, anyone who says he's colorblind and doesn't see race is another kind of blind, especially you.

Hi Nordette,

People like Limbaugh cater to a certain kind of social thinking because it's profitable. This doesn't make it ethically or morally right but court jesters (like Limbaugh) have the uncanny capacity to set aside ethics and morality when it is economically profitable to do so.

Rush Limbaugh gets paid to say things that others often think because of a entitled belief system. Corporate sponsors use his entertainment value to sell to his loyal followers. Like Limbaugh, these corporate sponsors set aside ethics and morality. The common denominator between them is money.

As a Black man, I don't indentify with Tiger Woods but then again, he doesn't identify with me either; so it's a wash.

The way to silence the Rush Limbaugh's of the world is to turn off the money valve. Lou Dobbs thought he had impunity to say whatever he wanted and discovered, money talks in the entertainment industry, otherwise you walk. Now, he going around reaching out to Latinos, claiming to support amnesty for undocumented workers.

When you set aside ethics and morality, reversing what you previously said or did is easy.

Rush Limbaugh gives humanity a bad name.

I'm confused. I always thought Rush had his finger on the pulse of the African-American zeitgeist. You mean he doesn't? Who speaks for you then?
