    Tiger really ain’t Black. He’s Black/Asian. Can’t really deny his Asian side with a strong culture.

    I don't see how calling Tiger black takes away from his asian side.

    It would be like saying see should not call Barrack Obama black, because of his white mother. Or saying don't call Kid Cudi is not black because he is half Mexican. Or Kyrie Irving being half Native American.

    Btw, let is remember that it was Tiger Woods himself that used stories of racism against his dad, him being called the n-word at a young age, and name dropping Charlie Sifford and Lee Elder as marketing when he first came out. Also most of the racially derogatory dog whistles that people have used against him has been targeted at his perceived blackness. Saying they will cook him fry chicken, or that others golfers are considering lynching him.

    Identity is a personal thing so I have no problem with Tiger wanting to identify with hat he wants. I also have no problem with people in the asian community seeing Tiger as one of their own too. But over the years whenever the issue of Tiger's race comes up, the world is reminded that for good or bad that Tiger's blackness is front and center. And Woods himself has had a hand in making it that way.

    Loool I ain't even think about that, if Mayor Pete wins they are all going to have an aneurysm. I can't imagine anything more triggering to an old Nigerian rich guy than a gay, progressive, young, millenial. :rofl::rofl:

    Given my mom's status as a older black women who is more conservative than the woke young liberals that dominante twitter i had to find out her thoughts since she's probably the key voting demographic to win the primary.

    She's all in on Joey Biden and not only doesn't buy this Joe Biden Me too stuff and is actually actively annoyed by it. She thinks me too is going to far and Al Franken never should have quit. :lol:

    Trump attorneys warn accounting firm not to hand over financial records
    The president’s attorneys urged Mazars USA to not comply with an imminent Democratic subpoena.

    President Donald Trump’s attorneys are warning of potential legal action if an accounting firm turns over a decade of the president’s financial records to the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

    Trump attorneys William S. Consovoy and Stefan Passantino are urging Mazars USA not to comply with a subpoena that Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) plans to issue on Monday for Trump’s financial documents, calling it a politically motivated scheme to take down the president.

    I will have to double check but I don't think Emerson is the most reliable.

    Taking all polls into consideration Biden is still the frontrunner. Mayor Pete is still behind Beto (it is weird to me Beto is doing such little TV), and Booker is higher than Yang.

    Beto has a better name ID and him and Pete are neck and neck, what happens when everyone knows who Mayor Pete is?


    All mayor Pete needs is a surprise early endorsement and **** will be over for Beto. :pimp:

    Beto is not even doing press right now though. In a two horse race between them I still see Beto winning.

    There is no one I can think of that will move the needle for Pete that much. Unless people drop out and start endorsing him.

    Only thing I thing going good for Pete right now is leftist/Bernie supporters are scare of Beto so they are focusing on smearing him early.
