Sergio and Tiger

Best analysis yet I've seen on golfer Sergio Garcia's "fried Chicken" reference directed at Tiger Woods:;_ylt=AmRIACnYZ3.IKO9e12CJE34m7.x_;_ylu=X3oDMTRxcG05dXJvBGNjb2RlA3ZzaGFyZWFnMnVwcmVzdARtaXQDTWl4ZWQgTGlzdCBOZXdzIEZvciBZb3UEcGtnAzJhMWYzZDU2LTJmNTEtMzYwMi04NmVjLTA3OTM1MWYxOTY4YgRwb3MDNARzZWMDbmV3c19mb3JfeW91BHZlcgM3ZTE2MTc4MS1jMzNiLTExZTItYmZjOS0zOTEyYzQyZWUyMDQ-;_ylg=X3oDMTBhYWM1a2sxBGxhbmcDZW4tVVM-;_ylv=3 Even here, though, after the author reminds us that such comments don't just "come out of nowhere," he later backs off and calls the comments more stupid than racist, putting them in the "context" of Garcia's frustration with being allegeldy distracted by and certainly beaten up in competition by Woods. But such frustrating and tense "contexts" arew exactly when latent racist feelings and beliefs are bound to surface--that doesn't make the surfacing of them any less "racist."
