In 2005, Tiger Woods told a shocking and moving story of being victimized as a child because of his race. In an interview for a book written by Charles Barkley and in an interview with Barbara Walters, Woods said he was abused by a group of kids on his first day of kindergarten because of his skin color. Kids are cruel sometimes, but the story is outrageous.
“I became aware of my racial identity on my first day of school, on my first day of kindergarten,” Woods said in the interview. “A group of sixth graders tied me to a tree, spray-painted the word ‘n****r’ on me, and threw rocks at me. That was my first day of school. And the teacher really didn’t do much of anything.”
Well apparently, his kindergarten teacher doesn’t agree with his version of his first day of school, according to TMZ.com. Ms. Maureen Decker doesn’t remember the incident and this story has brought out the former principal at the time as well. He says the same.
Why is this coming out now (Apparently Decker aired her opinion about the story in the media previously)? Because the media needs as many women as possible to come out of the woodwork with drama and lies that relate to Tiger during this slow news cycle. Drama sells. If I see this mess on CNN masquerading as real news, I’ll be mad.
There are tons of examples of school yard racism that really happen and scar kids for life. He’s an ass if he made this up for sympathy.
