Ehi Aimiuwu says that Tiger Woods is a “nothing but a symbol of Black inferiority” (GC Dec 4th). Aimiuw seems to think this true because Woods separated “himself from his people” and married a white woman. “While other races date Black women with royalty, degrees, and status; Tiger, a Stanford graduate, settles for the White nanny of a White golfer – Jesper Parnevik,” Aimiuw says. What racial nonsense!
Mr. Woods is himself a child of parents of different ethnicities. He once told Oprah Winfrey that as a child he had decided he was “Cablinasian” — a mixture of Caucasian, black, American Indian and Asian.
His mother Kutilda is from Thailand, his father is an American of multiple ethnic backgrounds.
Even more disturbing is the writer’s advice to “poor children”. Aimiuw tells them, “No matter what, always surround yourself with your people and people with the same understanding.” What backwardness! If you surround yourself with only what you know and what you are familiar with you will never grow.
Tiger Woods’ current trouble has little to do with race. It apparently has to do with marital infidelity and as we know, such actions are not racially exclusive.
