“We know you ain’t with us. You’ve told us several times.”
After the world watched a cowardly cop murder of George Floyd on a busy street in broad daylight, many black celebrities have made the bold choice to fall back from going on the record; some, like Nick Cannon, J. Cole, and Jamie Foxx, have taken their message to the front lines and joined protesters, while others have opened their mouths to show themselves to be the suckers that they have always been.
Lil Wayne thinks we’re all to blame for Floyd’s death. Nah, dawg. we didn’t all have our collective knee on his neck. Not surprising from Weezy, though. On a 2016 appearance on the Fox Sports Undisputed he told host Skip Bayless there “no such thing as racism”. Fuck him!
Where’s A$AP Rocky‘s sorry ass? That dude got black real quick when he was facing years in a Swedish prison, though. Fuck him!
Wonder if Kanye called in to the White House bunker to check on his daddy, Trump, when he was hiding from protesters? Fuck him and his corny shoes.
Fuck you too Doja Cat, and OJ, and Stacey Dash, and Zoe Saldana. Fuck you too.
Enter stage right, the blasian wonder, Tiger Woods. The golf pro, and Trump golf buddy, who famously told Oprah in 1997 that he wasn’t black, he was “Cablinasian”. Woods has so little concern for, and connection to, the racist mechanisms that directly contributes to the continued abuse of black people that he had his PR team jig up the most milk toast, none committal statement in response to Floyd’s murder:
“My heart goes out to George Floyd, his loved ones and all of us who are hurting right now. I have always had the utmost respect for our law enforcement. They train so diligently to understand how, when and where to use force. This shocking tragedy clearly crossed that line. I remember the LA riots and learned that education is the best path forward. We can make our points without burning the very neighborhoods that we live in. I hope that through constructive, honest conversations we can build a safer, unified society.”
It’s an insult. You should have just kept your mouth shut, Tiger.
You could have just typed "Negroes behave." And saved a whole bunch of time and graphic design, etc.
We know you ain't with us. You've told us several times.

I expect nothing less from him. From day one he said he did not identify with the black community so why should we expect him to now.

Weak and spineless statement, Tiger.

Soft. You golf with the guy who is declaring war on his citizens for standing up for a cause. The @PGATOUR should be ashamed as well for promoting his golf courses.

It takes no real position, ignores that racism is an actual problem and tries to please everyone while being most concerned about preserving his marketing position. Better to say nothing.
