Terence Moore has a thinking problem over Tiger Woods

Written by Juan Cena on Thursday, December 10 2009 and posted in SWRT

Leave it to Fanhouse columnist Terence Moore to bring race into the Tiger Woods fracas. Only this time it has to do with Moore's opinion on why Woods isn't getting support in the African-American community the was nefarious persons like O.J. Simpson or Michael Vick had in the past.
Moore's reasoning behind the cold shoulder? Woods' refusal in 1997 to declare himself an African American male in lieu of is interracial background. Back around the time Woods won his first Masters tournament he went on Oprah and referred to himself as "Cablinasian," a word he made up to describe his pretty complex ethnic background. His father was of mixed African-American, Chinese and Native American ancestry, and his mother is of mixed Thai, Chinese, and Dutch ancestry. It didn't seem at the time Woods didn't want to offend anybody at the time, so naturally it got a ruffled some people's feathers (notably Moore's).
Mind you, Moore gives absolutely zero proof of his theory. The entire article is his opinion on the subject. He gives no actual proof that Woods' comments from twelve years have any bearing on the African-American community's lack of support. He also ignores the concept that Woods infidelity is pretty much indefensible.
