Tiger Woods is a fallen African-American golfer who once inspired the Spirit of Hope for urban Americans, but now has fallen into the eternal pits of shame.
News reports indicate that Tiger Woods may have had some form of affair on his beautiful Swedish wife, Elin Woods, who is also the mother of his two children.
Such a betrayal of trust of his wife wounds all of us. We were proud of Tiger Woods, drinking Gatorade with his image on the side and smiling at the little brown golfers at the country club, knowing they just wanted to emulate their chocolate golfing hero.
Now, these kids are betrayed. Our dollar that said ‘We Support Tiger’ by buying the products he endorsed have been wasted. He has failed America by betraying all of us, and then has the nerve to not even tell us the full details of his affair.
Today I will have to sit down with my kids and explain to them that they can no longer cheer for Tiger Woods when he plays in tournaments or buy his golfing video entertainment games. I will have to explain to them the realities of life when they notice the browns are less in number at the golf club this Spring.
When teenage girls read about this story, they will become very scared to get married. A loving supermodel wife with Christian values was allegedly not enough for Tiger Woods, he just had to have more.
Tiger has betrayed America and it will take many years for us all to recover, especially since he’s not properly apologizing to us and all of the children he has betrayed. This is another example why we must be very careful as to the type of people we let into the world of golf and more importantly to serve as role models to our children.
