Tiger Woods

Ex Caddie Makes Racist Comment Towards Him

11/5/2011 4:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Stevie Williams and Tiger Woods
Stevie Williams -- who was Tiger Woods' caddie for 12 years -- accepted an award in Shanghai last night ... where he described the feeling of beating Woods during an event in August by saying, "It was my aim to shove it right up that black a------."

Williams quickly apologized for the remarks on his web site, saying, "I now realize how my comments could be construed as racist. However I assure you that was not my intent. I sincerely apologize to Tiger and anyone else I have offended."

Woods' agent reacted to the comments, saying, "It's sad it's come down to this."

The back story ... Williams was unceremoniously dumped by Woods in July and then worked the bag for Adam Scott at an event in August. Scott won the event and Williams stuck it to Woods after, calling it "the best win of his life."

Racist would apply here IF he called Tiger the "N" word.
Just b/c he said "black ass" is NOT racist!

So let's see:
Hollywood can make movies called "White Guys Can't Jump"
If Tiger said something like "I want to kick his white ass", this would not be racist because of the double standard you media and government jerkoffs promote.
Therefore, go stick your judgement of Steve Williams up your collective asses.

It's a complicated topic now bc the world of race relations has evolved, and people say sh#t like this to EACH OTHER, like "get your black ass in the car" to a friend, or "wow, what kind of cracker food is that?" to a co-worker" and it's HA HA HA bc we live and work together and WE know we're not racist, right? Also, comedians talk like this all the time and it has served to break tension between groups of people. AND we always walk a fine line when we publicly make fun of other peoples (Hello, metropcs commercials). But then, it crosses the line when it's said in anger, and put out there for the judgement of strangers. Maybe the caddy and Tiger talked like this all the time, in a joking way, maybe not. Regardless, it will be judged racist by people who feel the world generally racist.

His comment isn't racist. However, I think the reason everyone is calling it racist is because Tiger has stated that he doesn't consider himself "black," but rather multiracial. You'd think his long time caddie would know that which implies that he went back to the "one drop rule" and thus making his comment racist.

I have a hard time understanding how the sports media can claim this is racist in any way but TMZ reporting it is beyond crazy. I've looked on the internet and black is the most accepted use as compared to two N words that mean the same thing in different languages but are more frowned on. TMZ always pokes fun or says racist things that don't bother people from Jews running Hollywood to Black guys having big wangs to disparaging people in fly over states or different countries.

This guy is acting like one of Tiger's mistresses - he needs to just shut up - no one wants to hear a bitter bitch whine about being kicked to the curb.

Finally someone broke the news to Tiger and let him now he is indeed B-L-A-C-K. Also he is an *******. The ex-caddie wasn't far from the true. That's what happens when you reject your race and suck it up to the white man. LOL.

Well, he is black, so why is that a racist remark. What was he supposed to say, "Shove it up his afro american ass???? Now that's much better.

TMZ what is the horrible double standard? This in now way is racist but one of your Kardashian Clan sweethearts just the other day flat out on TV used racist language. So Black is now racist (please tell me the new accepted word) but using the Indian Giv** term is flat out OK to you!!! Just for the record the country wasn't discovered by Columbus a whole bunch of groups were already here then they just killed them off and broke treaty after treaty all the while disparaging the other group for taking things back(that's called hypocrisy by the way). Based on the fact that they didn't understand the other group who didn't have an ownership culture but a collective use culture.
