Sergio Garcia: Tiger Woods and fried chicken
I’m curious; was Garcia, as a Spaniard, aware of the negative connotations in the USA of associating fried chicken to Woods? In other words, I’m asking if there was actual racial malice instead of run-of-the-mill taunting after their spat a few weeks before.
What about watermelons?
No wonder Serge can’t win a major. He really is dumb as a stump.
I hope Adidas drops him soon.
Your comic says it all perfectly!
so when woods does all that club rattling during garcias drive,,,not cheating…not punishable…but vague racial slur… national cartoon to shame garcia,,,,seems correct
Many countries around the world have much less ethnic diversity than the US, and many of the people grow up using racial and ethnic slurs about other people and cultures without even thinking about it, because everyone around them does it. I have heard some of my coworkers in Ireland refer to a Tanzanian colleague as “Darky”, even when addressing him directly. However, the fried chicken idea is strictly an American stereotype about the stereotypical African-American diet. Sergio would not have grown up with that in Spain. He picked that up here and therefore must be fully aware of the negative connotations it carries, particularly since Fuzzy Zoeller was called out for it at the Masters several years ago. He meant it to be derogatory.
Why does anyone care about this? Let the kids work it out on their own playground.
taunted with:“Sergio Garcia would never make it as a liberal. He recognized his mistake, apologized immediately, and showed genuine contrition.”
Well done, you’ve managed to throw in a partisan dig in a subject totally unrelated to anything concerning political affiliation.What does that make you? I refer you back to the cartoon above.
