I am aware of that Ernie, thanks! I am in SA regularly and find it far more sensible that, particularly in a country with its history, obvious and common sense adjectives like black, white and coloured can still be used without fear or prejudice. Better than the convoluted nonsense that we find in US and UK. FWIW, I used to find it hard to use the term black for fear of being rude/racist, but this is not an issue with any of my colleagues/friends. Perhaps we could all benefit from their perspective and common sense?
Woods and Garcia hate each other. They had another recent bust up when Garcia claims the Woods (Tiger not Tigger BTW - unless that was a Garciaesque mistake!) deliberately got the crowd going just as he was about to hit the shot. Yes, credit to Woods for not using the "r" word (if that is the case). Garcia made an error, he makes loads as he is a bit of a prat at the best of times. Who knows if it was deliberate? Does it really matter in the grander scheme of things. There is far more serious racism to tackle more importantly.
ironically when Tiger was first dominating the scene he was often described as black - first black to win this and that. Encouraging black golfers to take up the game etc. When as we know he is of mixed race. Was it racist to call him a black golfer? Does it matter, when like here there was little intent - at least in the second case?
Talking of teacups, time for a cuppa myself now!
