Golf Channel anchor woman Kelly Tilghman who is a former Blue Devil golfer, put more than her foot in her mouth last Friday at Duke’s telecast of the Mercedes Benz Championship, the PGA tour’s inaugural event of the season, when she said on air “golf’s young player’s should lynch Tiger Woods in a back alley“.
She was allowed to continue commentating which is wild to say the least. We do not know the context of how she was using such an inflammatory remark but will say that it doesn’t matter because you should be smart enough to know what is very offensive to an entire group of people especially if you get paid to speak for a living. Wow with these kind of blatantly racist remarks Rev. Al Sharpton will never be out of a job. She should definitely lose her job for making such a derogatory remark.

A state representative in a runoff election infuriated civil rights leaders after she ended a conversation with the mother of the NAACP’s local president by saying, “Talk to you later, Buckwheat.”
State Rep. Carla Blanchard Dartez, of Morgan City, acknowledged she made the remark during a Thursday night telephone conversation with Hazel Boykin to thank her for driving voters to the polls.
Buckwheat, a black child character in the “Little Rascals” comedies of the 1930s and ’40s, is viewed as a racial stereotype demeaning to black people.
“I made an insensitive comment when speaking with Hazel Boykin, and I have apologized to the Boykin family and publicly for my choice of words,” Dartez said in a statement. “I have a strong record of fighting for issues important to the African American community; in fact, I have a 93 percent voting record with the Black Caucus.”
And she is still running??? She’s a racist. Between her, Kramer, Don Imus, Bill O’Reilly, Bill O’Reilly, Bill O’Reilly, Bill O’Reilly, and Dog Duane Chapman, soon they’re going to need to form a KKK-unit for public officials and celebrities. She needs a good A-Town stomping by Bishop Thomas Weeks right about now….

Finally a little bit of justice is starting to be wrought down in Jena Louisiana!!! Mychal Bell the last of the Jena 6 was finally released out on $45,000 bail today after sitting in jail since he was arrested for the school fight back in December.
Thanks Rev. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the millions of supporters, and thousands of marchers!!!! This is a great step toward real justice. I know Bell’s family is overwhelmed with joy.
“We still have mountains to climb, but at least this is closer to an even playing field,” said the Rev. Al Sharpton, who helped organize last week’s protest.
“He goes home because a lot of people left their home and stood up for him,” Sharpton said.
An estimated 20,000 to 25,000 protesters marched in Jena last week in a scene that evoked the early years of the civil-rights movement.
