Why wasn't this an issue with Tiger Woods?

My guess is Golf is not a team sport. No available teammate to dislike him.

Yeah really? If she's black first and we're her family second and only Black people will come to fight for her, where the hell did her black biological father go over 20 years ago? I'll tell you this....she's proud of her last name and doesn't want his. None of this guy's family has ever reached out to her....ever, and it's not because they weren't allowed. Cause no one has seen him. I'm pretty sure that we've fought for her, emotionally, financially, lovingly. She's turned out beautifully. Working on her masters at College of Charleston. Brilliant singer. Smart, rational woman.

If you Told Whitney (her name) she would tell you the same thing I'm about to tell you.

What you just said is incredibly dumb. If you think that she identifies with race more then she identifies with her family, then quite really there's no hope for you.

There's no black people rushing to her aide and treating her nicely trying to appeal to her "blackness". Jesse Jackson isn't calling her up saying "we got your back."


Whitney chooses as an adult to live within one block of her mom, and our grandparents.

That girl is like a valley girl.

I think what hap is referring to is more about the reason the ancestors of African American were enslaved than some irresponsible guy who failed to honor his fatherly responsibility. I don't know your cousin and I won't claim to know how she thinks but the minute she one day faces the ugliness of racism it will reach her in a way you can't comprehend. Unless she's stupid it'll change her perspective in life in a way you might not comprehend.

you're african-american right? if i may ask, i'm curious how that's treated (based on your perceptions of the african-american community) as a whole… cultural identity of mixed-race individuals, i mean. if a guy is half white and half black, how should he act? if he speaks AAE with other blacks and SE (standard english) for media and white people, that's deemed normal, right? what if he speaks SE among both blacks and whites, but chooses to hang out primarily with blacks? what if he speaks SE among both, but chooses to hang out primary with whites? or, what if he chooses to speak AAE, but hangs out primarily with whites?

how is racial identity mixed with language, and what social expectations would you say come with his?

This is so profound because whites don't accept mixed race people as their own. As a result of such rejection they tend to fall back to their other half, the black community for support and security. After being sheltered by the black community there's some expectation of loyalty. So, when a person of mixed race(or pure black) try to emulate the mannerism of white people some feel they're disingenuous(or 'not real') or sell out. Emulating the mannerism or culture of whites is far different from behaving like a professional.

What Harvin and some of his teammates might be alluding to is how Wilson is being protected by the white community because he's emulating white behavior(or 'sell out'). Comparatively when guys like Cam retain their cultural identity the (white) media put a bull's eye on them. So there is this sell out or else attitude in the media when it comes to the players.

If you sell out you get the honor to be compared to 'our' white god Andrew Luck. If you don't we'll make sure no one know you exist. The only time we'll mention you exist is when you're in handcuffs. Apparently Wilson wanted no part of that.

This is not about who speak slangs or standard. I can assure you, every black person can speak with the same accent('good English') that whites speak. The media acting like Wilson found a secret formula is what might put some people off.

Moral of the story is, you can't claim or rip the benefit of being black while choosing to associate with non-blacks. Looks like Wilson will have to hang out with his white buddies in the down low from now on.

Now every time a black teammate pass by Wilson will pretend he wasn't talking to his white friends. Sucks living in the down low.

In the meantime Andrew Luck get to hang out with as many white guys as he want and the black players play even harder for him.

The Cowboys have cap issues. They're 6-1. The obsession in building a perfect defense is killing this team.
