Kelly wants Tiger Woods Lynched Part 2


I just heard that Kelly Tilghman has been suspended from her job at the Golf Channel for two weeks as a result of her “young golfers should lynch Tiger Woods in a back alley” racist blast. In case you didn’t see it, here’s the comment.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

As I said before: Not good enough. Again, that’s not a “N-word” slip up or a off color comment about some a miscellaneous Afro, oh no, that was 1. knowledge of racist statement, 2. application to a situation of white dudes and a black man and 3. execution of said statement IN CONTEXT. Shit, even this guy thinks two weeks isn’t good enough.


Pissed off man. I’ll say it again… I have no love for Kelly Tilghman and she should be FIRED! Nothing less is acceptable. People who think it was just an innocuous comment don’t understand the South, don’t understand Southern racism and don’t understand the history…. people like me and Kelly, we do. Trust me, she’s racist.

    Well, i was thinking about it and thinking about it – and i was willing to give her the benefit of the doubt, actually. Everybody slips up from time to time and says something very stupid. It’s just that she used that verb “lynch”. That was such an odd choice – there are 500 other words or phrases she could have used in that context to make the point. So, naw, i want to disagree w/ you, but it is very dificult to.

    You talk about “not good enough”. Well, your post is ridiculous! The only racist here is Y-O-U!

    First off, I’m white, so I’m not sure who I’m being “racist” toward. Secondly, why don’t you elaborate on your post. Y-O-U- proved nothing with that post. How am I racist by pointing out the reality that your average white person doesn’t run around talking about lynching black people… At least I don’t, maybe you do…. If so, then I apologize, lynching comments on national broadcasts are perfectly permissible. Idiot.

    I have to agree with the author. Normal people don’t go around laughing and smiling about lynching black people. I’m a white woman in my 40’s and I would never even think to use such a term. Anyone who does must either use it regularly in her everyday speech or have some sort of gross insensitivity borne out of her own upbringing. Either way, it’s racist and horrible offensive to all of us. I think she should have been terminated, but at least they disciplined her.

    I’m not sure how any one can defend her unless they have their own ax to grind. She made her own bed, now she has to sleep in it.

    Definitely racist. No question about it. That’s like some German guy making a ‘gas em’ reference about a Jew. It has no place in sports our society and she should be harshly dealt with.

  6. Boone Says:

    It needs to be harshly dealt with. And we also need to remember that we screw around with other races too. Native Americans, Latinos, those from the Middle East, etc. and it is funny to many as long as it is not their group being insulted. Think Isaac Hayes and South Park. Just cause your mind thinks it…don’t mean your mouth has to say it.

  7. Kate Says:

    It is obvious — she should resign & start re-thinking white privilege. Her comment is unacceptable. She is a bigot & actually seems quite proud of it.
