Was Sergio race baiting Tiger with "fried chicken?" ETA: Tiger's comments


Fried Chicken Remark

quote:

Garcia, who took issue with Woods for what he viewed as a breach of golf course etiquette during the third round of The Players Championship two weeks ago, was asked in jest at a European Tour function if he would be inviting Woods to dinner during next month's U.S. Open. Sergio Garcia was in a joking mood at the European Tour awards dinner Tuesday night in England, where he shared the stage with Luke Donald and Nicolas Colsaerts, then later made a controversial remark about Tiger Woods. "We'll have him round every night,'' Garcia said, according to multiple media reports. "We will serve fried chicken.''


The guy is a Spaniard, I am not sure he gets the implication of fried chicken racist context from a US prospective.

How is fried chicken a racist thing? Man white people eat the yard bird too you know.

ETA: Tiger's response:

Tiger Speaks

quote:

Woods responded on Twitter to Garcia’s initial statement of apology. ”The comment that was made wasn’t silly. It was wrong, hurtful and clearly inappropriate,” he said in a series of tweets. “I’m confident that there is real regret that the remark was made."

It does sound like he has some racial intent behind it

Edit: although I just skimmed the quoted part

Probably. That's the majority of Tiger's ethnic makeup.

He could offer something Native American or Asian (Thai/Chinese) too. Round all the bases.

I know what time it is. I'm going to bed right now.

By the way, if you need some punctuation, you should ask Owlie and Peej.

Me and the punctuation never get along on here. Never have.

You give that big boat a kiss for me and hit the hay.

This may have come across as racist as well.... Fuzzy Zoeller quote at the Masters

At the 1997 Masters tournament, Zoeller made an off-hand remark regarding Tiger Woods. After finishing tied for 34th place with a score of 78, Zoeller, referring to the following year's Masters Champions Dinner, for which the defending champion selects the menu, said, "He's doing quite well, pretty impressive. That little boy is driving well and he's putting well. He's doing everything it takes to win. So, you know what you guys do when he gets in here? You pat him on the back and say congratulations and enjoy it and tell him not to serve fried chicken next year. Got it." Zoeller then smiled, snapped his fingers, and walked away before turning and adding, "or collard greens or whatever the hell they serve."[3]K-Mart and Dunlop ceased sponsoring Zoeller after the incident.[4][5]

Tempest Bledsoe {Huxtable kid on TV}said on politically incorrect that black people should stop eating fried chicken.

The mere fact that he said it during the feud proves there was a racial intent and I hate all the damn race baiting going on these days. It certainly wasn't a real offer for Tiger to drop by for dinner.
