Well well well....Good Ole Tiger Woods, What is really going on? Apparently a whole lot because the women of his past and present just can't keep their mouths shut! When I first heard the report that Tiger had allegedly cheated on his wife it was no surprise to me, that is one of the factors that may come with marrying an athlete...sometimes they cheat ...sometimes they don't. No one ever knows what cards you will be dealt until its your turn to play. I turned to station after station and there he was and every ones ears were open to see what the latest news was. I wonder is the world so interested because its Tiger Woods or because he cheated on his ex white model wife? Make you think doesn't it...
What Tiger is accused of doing is something that happens every day to people in any given city. Its nothing new for a man to get caught cheating on his wife with numerous lovers so why does it interest the world so much. I might sound a little racist for what I'm about to say but hmmmm....its how i feel...and like the name of my blog If you don't like my opinion...that's fine.
Kobe Bryant was once to caught up in a cheating scandal that shocked the world d but i think not because the L.A. Laker's Kobe had been caught cheating and of rape more that he was cheating on his not black wife and the world was appalled by it. I sat back and watched all the news coverage of his cheating ways and saw the nation ate it up from court case to court case from every piece of jewelery he brought his wife until he beat his charges we were on the edge of our seats to see where this would lead us and where did it?
Another cheating scandal pops in my head when I think of Kobe and Tiger...Micheal Jordan. I wonder if anyone really remembers his story *Kanye shrug* I'm sure many DO NOT! Jordan was married to his wife for 17yrs and in that time he managed to cheat numerous times but only one really stood out..a white girl by the name of Karla who filed suite against him but do you remember seeing that on every talk show, gossip site and news station because who cares about the black man cheating on his black wife....or at least that's how i feel about it. Steve McNair cheated on his wife and the only reason the world paid it any kind of mind was because his story ended oh so very tragic and once i sit back and think about it his died down rather quickly after his funeral the media just wasn't interested on what lead him to do it. A pretty picture was painted of Tiger and his home life which made me laugh until I got tears in my eyes...Is he the only athlete who has a wife, kids and a booming career to cheat on his wife? because most of them and that and more. It angers me that the media is so much more interested in exposing him because of his choice of wife....Does it make there situation much more news worthy because he cheated on his white wife is that what we are so amazed by..that after scoring himself and beautiful non black wife that he would have the balls to cheat on her.. Think about the women who get cheated on everyday why isn't there stories just as news worthy as Tigers is. OK So what he cheated...So what he got caught....So what he left one of his women a message...so what he cheated with a stable of women he's not the first athlete to do so and he won't be the last. They care so much because it was Elin he cheated on and not Iesha
Would the media been just as interested if Tiger had found Shanika, Fahtima and Lashelle to cheat on his wife with instead of Kelly, Chrissy and Mallory? Would they spend so much time and effort to expose him and his indiscretions if he was flying women of color all over the world to have sex with? We would the world still be giving him the side eye from hell if this all under different circumstances.
