After recently refusing to attack President Trump during a recent interview, golf legend Tiger Woods was mocked on ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, who went so far as to say Woods was “not black.”
“He’s not black,” said Smith, adding, “When he got arrested, he was black. He was listed black on the report.”
This completely mild response set off the “First Take” crew.
“It really bothers me. I’m angry at what Tiger Woods said, because it is a thoughtless statement dressed up as a thoughtful statement, and it either holds in contempt the intelligence of people who hear it, or else it’s just a stupid thing to say,” said Kellerman. The co-host argued that “having respect for the office means, principally, in my view, is the officer-holder should have respect for the office.”
“Well, we all know that,” agreed Smith.
“Tiger Woods is … being slick,” continued an upset Kellerman, adding, “I don’t even know if he believes that’s what he’s saying.”
“Well, first of all, we don’t know what Tiger Woods believes. He’s Cablinasian. He’s not black,” responded Smith. “When he got arrested, he was black. He was listed black on the report.”
