Jesus, dude, the odds are that chick didn't even know what "lynching" meant. This isn't "dumb white people" it's much more "Hypersensitive America".

What some folks consider "racism," others consider "hypersensitive political correctness."

So that means you think she meant what she said, that Tiger, because of his skin color, should be hung from a tree? In the most literal sense?

Me? Hell no! I'm personally of the opinion that this is just another example of "hypersensitive political correctness."

Badly worded? Yes.

Intended racial hatred? I don't think so.

I'm sure Al Sharpton will get this all cleared up.

FOR SURE. I am not saying racism isn't a problem, I have lived with it. But every time one borderline comment is made it gets COMPLETELY blown out of proportion. Case in point: Arthur Blank's fried chicken comment... Give me a fricking break.

If that's true, it's one of the sadder things I've ever read.

But this isn't the first time someone in the golf community has made racist comments against Tiger. Remember Fuzzy Zoeller?
