We’ve seen this movie before. Our younger friends might not know that this movie is merely one of a series, though, so bear with me as I recount the basic elements of each iteration.
- A black professional entertainer
- becomes popular in white society
- through a combination of alpha male success in his field and a carefully protected media image.
- He marries a beautiful white woman,
- and rakes in millions through entertainment earnings and product endorsements.
- Then, years down the road, the wheels come off the bus, and we see that much of his life story was not a success, but an unmitigated and sick disaster.
Gen-Xers will remember the 1995 version of this movie — O.J. Simpson: Not Guilty. In that movie, a lovable black runningback who played for a team in the white, blue-collar city of Buffalo and performed comedic roles in films such as The Naked Gun turned out to be a wife-beating rageaholic who murdered her and another man and then had the gall to accuse Los Angeles Police Department officers of racism.
Another film that was shelved for decades but finally hit the mainstream in 2014 came as a shocker to Baby Boomers — The Cosby Quaaludes. In that film, a man who literally wrote a book on fatherhood and made his living portraying himself as a funny, upstanding, moral father figure turned out to be an actual serial rapist. Granted, Cosby’s wife is a lighter-skinned black woman, but he still went after white wimmin with his wife’s knowledge and consent for decades.
Now, Millennials will get to enjoy their own version of the film — Tiger Woods: In the Rough.
The once-invincible Cablinasian golf champion Tiger Woods has really gotten off course since 2009. It’s incredible to consider just how far he’s fallen in the public esteem. In the late 1990s he was the “great black hope” of professional golf. He was the wunderkind who would transform an old white man’s game into a diverse, multicultural, utopia drawing in inner-city youth and eradicating centuries of slavery, segregation, and oppression Just like a state senator from Illinois was predicted to do several years later.
Of course none of that happened. To be fair, golf did get more urban thanks to Tiger. Assuming that urban means profane. He got golf more into the tabloids. And it did get more sex appeal when the game’s star, named after a predator from the jungle, turned out to be just that — an adulterous, lying, predator of white women. And he did demonstrate great skill on the greens. But just like with Cosby and Simpson, Tiger Woods’s image has turned out to be largely fraudulent.
Millions of drunk white fans still won’t want to believe that their beloved Tiger is actually a bad guy. Ergo, the tripe from a white ESPN writer lamenting Woods’s DUI arrest as “sad” which simply pats the perp’s head with a sympathetic tap instead of actually striking him with the full force of blame and punishment that a lying, adulterous, reckless driver deserves. If he was a lower-class white man with a similar record, would he have gotten treated with kid gloves by the press? Doubtful. And the anti-white, anti-law and order black media has once again played the Johnnie Cochran race card in blaming reasonable, professional law enforcement officials for arresting a man who was a hazard to other people on the road. They didn’t see a black man. They saw a moron who shouldn’t have been behind the wheel.
By the way, have any of you millennials seen the 1993 film Michael Jackson: I Love Children?
