Golf Channel anchor says young golfers should 'lynch Tiger Woods'

What is it about Duke? Okay, maybe that's not fair. But it did make me scratch my head and wonder when I read what Kelly Tilghman (pictured with Arnold Palmer), a former Blue Devil golfer, said on the Golf Channel last Friday during her gig as co-lead announcer for the network's telecast of the Mercedes-Benz Championship, the PGA Tour's inaugural event of the season.

I have not seen the clip, nor do I know the context of the remarks. This is what I know — that Tilghman, who never played on the LPGA Tour, said golf's young players should "lynch Tiger Woods in a back alley."

Had Woods been white, to use the most heinous crime committed in this nation to illustrate God-knows-what point would have been egregious. But that he's not makes the remark unconscionable. And punishable.

It would be a travesty if Tilghman is allowed to broadcast the next event for the Golf Channel. (It speaks volumes already that she was allowed to sit on the air all day Saturday, as if nothing happened. She then offered an on-air apology Sunday but still did the entire telecast.)

At minimum, a suspension is in order. Some will surely call for a firing. If the network does nothing — just months after the Jena Six dominated the nation's airwaves — it would make a significant statement about the network's tolerance of such actions. A statement that would hurt the sport of golf and rekindle memories of a racist history that Woods' success has helped it begin to move past.

Doing nothing would remind us of Fuzzy Zoeller
Doing nothing would remind us of Shoal Creek.
Doing nothing would not be smart.

Okay, so it's just the Golf Channel. And Kelly Tilghman is simply a hottie that was given an opportunity to anchor a telecast because she can swing a golf club.

That is not the point. Tolerance at any level cannot be tolerated.
Your move, GC.

Tilghman has reportedly reached out to Woods to apologize. Here's hoping, at least for the moment — until the Golf Channel makes its statement — that he does not accept the call. Or the apology.

Why would anyone, of any skin color, talk about lynching in a joking way?? Der! I don't think she should loose her job, but maybe she should be suspended or put out a formal apology! Maybe a PSA?

    She and Tiger are friends. She just got nervous and said something stupid while they were joking around together. Why don't you actually watch the footage before making her out to be some kind of Klan member? Stupid and unprofessional, yes, but not racist.

    And leave Duke out of it. Remember, Duke atheletes were the victims of a black woman, not the other way around.

    Britney knows what she is doing, she is not mentally ill or being taken advantage of. She likes the attention. She hooks up with paps to create all these breaking news to stay in spotlight. It makes her feel like she is still a star and she loves it. I bet you they paid her some money too.

    She no longer wants to work to stay in spotlight. Working is too hard for her now. She wants to make money from selling tabloid stories.

    Perez, you're an idiot for reporting this without all the facts. Kelly and Tiger are friends. She has known him for over 12 years. She and Nick Faldo were discussing Tiger's dominance in the sport and was just making a remark to that young golfers should get rid of him if they want a chance at winning. Yes she used poor choice of words, but she isn't a racist. Tiger wasn't offended, so why shoud you be.

  87. Gatorgal says – reply to this


    87

    #70 - You're an idiot as well. Tiger isn't ashamed of his african american roots, he just doesn't want to be labeled "black". After all, wouldn't it be a slap in his mother's face not to recognize his asian roots.

  88. Your Id says – reply to this


    88

    Tiger Woods is an exceptional athlete and role model. His race is not a qualifier in that.

    Why is it so easy for people to be hateful in blogs? Why is spreading I dare say love so difficult, so inconceivable, so unhuman? I am constantly reminded and amazed that despite how we attempt to hide behind deodorants, perfumes and clothing….we are still animals. Evolution has played a trick on us. We just look smarter. Everything goes to shit once we open our mouths.

    even if tiger was white…the term lynch really shouldnt be used. If you do your research you'll see that it originated against blacks. and yea whoever said racism doesnt exist is a dumbass….i mean just read, what, half of the comments throughout perez's website. People can just be so rude and ignorant! UGH! it makes me sick.

    and yes sometimes things are really twisted to make it seem racist and get out of hand. but come on this time it is kinda racist. She could ofjust said young golfers need to do something to get rid of tiger! lynching is not something to joke about

    WHOA! That is so fucking heinous. Tiger Woods has done so much for the game of golf in general never mind for his race. He should be remembered as the sum of what he was personally but still that comment to possibly the greates golfer ever should land that bitch on the welfare line.

    Tiger Woods is a great example and a true hero.

Get over yourself and take your little racist ass back to 1910 where you belong and where that shit is acceptable…

    For everyone that disagrees with Perez, I challenge you to Google the word lynching, and switch it to the image search. It does not matter what the circumstance was, or what context it was used in, or if it was just a "cute" thing said between friends. It is the history of the word, and what it implicates toward the ENTIRE African-American community that counts. Ignorance is not bliss.
