Whether the comment was or was not racist is now just a matter of what label we want to put on the situation. To me, Sergio was trying to take a negative shot a Tiger based on part of Tiger's racial makeup. I think that's pretty clear. I don't need everyone to agree to label the comment "racist" for the comment to be considered unacceptable and despicable.
Yes, but Fuzzy was worse .... "or collared greens ... or whatever those people eat..."
It takes longer for some of us to mature ... it took me a long time. Sergio is learning his lessons the hard way. Was his statement racist? Well, it was a stereotype used in a negative manner ... but I give Sergio the benefit of the doubt. He is emotional and he was trying to get even with Tiger - that thirst for revenge overcame common sense or rational thought. His apology was offered immediately and in a sincere manner.
I just read that Sergio's Taylormade deal is worth $5 million per year! No wonder he could hardly sleep!
