My grandmother told me, "Brian, you are going to be something...just keep in mind that you will always be a Ni**er to them. No matter what you accomplish."
I loved my grandmother. She was so honest, and so right. Her statement by no means made me feel inferior. It has helped me navigate through the mess America has made and continues to make. She gave me this advice out of love. So, I would not be hurt. She told her sons the same thing before they left for Vietnam. Guess what? She was right then too. Raymond and Jerry came back Ni**ers who fought in a war for America. Following American military orders to kill innocent men, women, and children while in a foreign land. Their payment was to be reminded that they were 'less than' - "Whites Only. No Ni**ers allowed."
Tiger is at home now. He just like every black man walking around on American soil. He shaped his recent image (chronic philanderer) - but one thing he did not do during his development was associate himself with anything/anybody that could connect him to what? A Ni**er.
Now, he one...even after winning at THEIR game. I ain't surprised at all.
Grandma was right!
BTW, what black man would let himself be pictured that way - and not know it was to demean him and all other black men? You guessed right. One who trusted the system of America. Tiger believed in the system because he has never faced it as a what? Black man...
