The inevitable “Tiger’s mistresses weren’t diverse enough” column

posted at 1:30 pm on December 8, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

I expected this argument to be made, but not in the pages of the Washington Post; I assumed it would come as a blog post.  Eugene Robinson takes leave of his senses in his attempt to spin Tiger Woods as either a racist or a self-hating minority — or a little of both — by complaining that Tiger’s mistresses have too much in common.  Guess what that might be?

Here’s my real question, though: What’s with the whole Barbie thing?

No offense to anyone who actually looks like Barbie, but it really is striking how much the women who’ve been linked to Woods resemble one another. I’m talking about the long hair, the specific body type, even the facial features. Mattel could sue for trademark infringement.

This may be the most interesting aspect of the whole Tiger Woods story — and one of the most disappointing. He seems to have been bent on proving to himself that he could have any woman he wanted. But from the evidence, his aim wasn’t variety but some kind of validation.

I’m making a big assumption here that the attraction for Woods was mostly physical, but there’s no evidence thus far that he had a lot of time for deep conversation. If adultery is really about the power and satisfaction of conquest, Woods’s self-esteem was apparently only boosted by bedding the kind of woman he thought other men lusted after — the “Playmate of the Month” type that Hugh Hefner turned into the American gold standard.

But the world is full of beautiful women of all colors, shapes and sizes — some with short hair or almond eyes, some with broad noses, some with yellow or brown skin. Woods appears to have bought into an “official” standard of beauty that is so conventional as to be almost oppressive.

His taste in mistresses leaves the impression of a man who is, deep down, both insecure and image-conscious — a control freak even when he’s committing “transgressions.”

Of all the issues in play with this story, and even with many that probably shouldn’t be in play, this is easily the most ridiculous.  I haven’t seen much of the mistresses, and I hope to see even less as this story finally falls out of the media spotlight, but it seems to me that Tiger shockingly cheated with attractive women.  And while his assignations may have required a certain amount of logistical planning to keep them from coming to his wife’s attention, it seems very, very unlikely that Tiger planned his infidelities in such a way as to keep diversity as his primary motive.

For that matter, let’s think about what Robinson considers “oppressive.”  He’s angry to the point of dedicating a column to the issue that Tiger Woods didn’t exploit women of other colors, shapes, and sizes for sexual satisfaction.  Was his extramarital attention to these women some kind of liberating experience for them, to the point where Robinson argues that Woods should have distributed the wealth a little more?

And can anyone who has had as many flings as Tiger apparently has, with as much indiscretion as has been exposed, possibly be considered a “control freak”?  Is that why he’s managed to indict himself so thoroughly by giving his cell number out to his paramours while his wife has access to the phone?

Besides, no one knows whether we’ve seen the complete set of Tiger’s paramours.  There may be more crawling out of the woodwork in the next few days and weeks.  If one of them is a woman of color, or a little on the chunky side, will Robinson write another column hailing Tiger’s work in spreading the, er, wealth?

Woods has done plenty of wrong to his wife and his family, and to a much lesser extent his fans.  Insensitivity to Eugene Robinson’s sense of exploitation diversity isn’t one of them. (via The Corner)

Update: I Own The World points out that Robinson’s not alone.

Update II: Ace has a must-read rant on this subject, too.

Eugenie Robinson is not just a flaming libtard but one of the worst columnists in the country. Only his boy friends can make sense of his drivel.

So we need an Affirmative Action program for adulterers? Great.

vcferlita on December 8, 2009 at 2:02 PM

No, hooligan, you’ve got it all wrong. It’s written to assume that Tiger isn’t into women of color, as Eugene asserts. But, insert “Eugene Robinson” where you see the word “variety” and the story changes.

This is a sour grapes story written by a jealous guy who could never command the attention of the one he so desperately wanted to impress.

ted c on December 8, 2009 at 2:02 PM

Tiger knows:
A white woman will take your money.
A black woman will take your money and your life.

I’m also shocked at Woods’ homophobia – men aren’t good enough for his sexual desires?

I think I figured it out. Eugene Robinson wants Tiger to be more like Barack Obama, Sr. – the polygamist who had a “diverse” collection of brides, most notably a nice, white, fellow traveler who shared his desire to learn Russian.

It kills me how now the new deal is you are supposed to sleep with diverse people.

It isn’t enough that people accept and don’t care who others sleep with; now we’re supposed to feel guilty if we don’t have enough diversity in our sex partners!

“You must sleep with this kind of person and that type of person, or you’re a racist!”

(This is particularly difficult for those who are monogamous.)

No such thing as personal sexual preference as to what turns a person on. You have to be politically sexually correct!

I wonder if soon the rallying cry will be, if you don’t sleep with someone of the same gender, you’re a homophobic?

Alana on December 8, 2009 at 2:12 PM

Oh my, Eugene. “The lady doth protest too much.” You’re no great thinker, just another grievance monger slithering around looking for a reason to spew the usual nonsense about being a victim of someone – even Tiger’s choices in chicks.

Makes me wonder what kind of skirts Eugene is chasing.

Well after his post on Tom Cruise’s last wife being white; this is fair. Oh, I was thinking of his comment that Hef doesn’t bang enough minorities.

Weird, he didn’t write either of those; its like he only expected Tiger to sleep with minorities. Has he made this demand of white men? I wonder why not…

I didn’t expect to see a thinly veiled “only date women your own color” article in a major newspaper in this day and age. I’m disappointed. This is my great-grandfather’s era of redneck racism; I’d have thought the Washington Post could do better by now.

Woods has done plenty of wrong to his wife and his family, and to a much lesser extent his fans.

I am not a fan of golf but I have never looked to the athletes I admire as anything more than great athletes. Hero worshiping people who play games is silly.

Bill C on December 8, 2009 at 2:30 PM

Let me see if I can grasp this…

He’s actually — COMPLAINING — that Tiger Woods didn’t cheat on his wife — with ENOUGH women with darker skin or darker hair.

Nope, sorry, it STILL makes no sense to me. Complaining that somebody’s cheating doesn’t fulfill some implicit race quota? I think this qualifies as Racism Derangement Syndrome, which I guess you end up getting if you see every damned little thing in life from a racialist perspective.

Get a freaking life, Eugene. Crimony. It’s people like you who are the reason the rest of us LAUGH when we’re called racists.

Aitch748 on December 8, 2009 at 2:31 PM

When Eugene refers to other women, he really means himself.

I wonder what Mr. Robinson thinks of Seal who cranks out one child after another child with supermodel Hedi Klum. Is he lusting out after a perceived ideal instead of going for a real relationship too?

What Eugene Robinson or any other proponent of the race industry has to say is pretty irrelevant to Tiger Woods these days. This really is a non-story now.

highhopes on December 8, 2009 at 2:32 PM

How long before a “cougar” becomes a golf score or golf shot?

If you carom one off the black escalade in the parking lot and it takes 10 shots at the hole to put it in right, does that count as a cougar?

ted c on December 8, 2009 at 2:33 PM

They were all young and somewhat hot. He married a woman who is whiter than white. Some guys like Asian or Latin girls. Tiger likes what he likes.

From Eugene Robinson’s viewpoint can a guy with diverse tastes now tell his wife that screwing around is really just “affirmative action”?

dedalus on December 8, 2009 at 2:33 PM

For real? This guy is worried that Tiger Woods is such a control freak that he would have affairs with similar types of women, women who fit a certain mold.

This is a guy who can determine the movements across his entire body by degrees and fractions of an inch, and calculate how those movements will affect the path and angle of attack of a golf club and how it will impact the flight of a small, divoted white ball. He does this virtually on the fly, while his body is generating many, many foot-pounds of torquing power. He was taught this by his father, an ex-Special Forces operative.

What about this made you think he wasn’t such a control freak that he would have affairs with women who fit such a particular mold they could pass for sisters? I mean, jeez, you didn’t see this coming?

Sgt Steve on December 8, 2009 at 2:34 PM

At this point, I’d doubt some of these women ever met him, nevermind…..

29Victor on December 8, 2009 at 2:41 PM

The great humor for me is blacks like ER somehow projecting blackness into Tiger Woods, and then wondering what on earth is wrong with him that he doesn’t “act black enough”.

Woods is, I believe, hald Taiwanese (Mom), and parts African-American, European (white), and native North American by his father. You have to go back to the Jim Crow south and the one-drop rule to find this perverted logic being used in public.

It is now widely accepted among blacks and other liberals (witness the orgy of racialism around Barack “1/2 Kansas Lily-white communist + 1/2 Kenyan-and-Arab = African American” Obama) that you’re basically “black” if you have any African heritage or if you say “I’m black”.

And even though he doesn’t actually say it (I didn’t read his idiotic column), Robinson seems to be certain that Tiger Woods should only be screwing black women, somehow. This, he also seems to believe, would be “better”.

Better for whom? I strongly suspect, as others have chirped, that he really means black men.

For someone who so casually slandered Obama’s opponents as racists to even care about the ethnicity of an adulterer’s mistresses speaks volumes about who the real racist is.

The great humor for me is blacks like ER somehow projecting blackness into Tiger Woods, and then wondering what on earth is wrong with him that he doesn’t “act black enough”.

While Eugene Robinson is a special brand of fool, I think you misinterpret his words.

He is not suggesting that Tiger is not “black enough.” He would refute such allegations vociferously; I’m sure of it. His typically sober, albeit whiny, disposition on issues of race makes these comments particularly curious.

Simply, I think Eugene Robinson grew up when it was downright ROUGH to be an unattractive black man. He is jealous and trying to veil that green-streak with pseudo compassion for fat girls with “almond eyes” or “broad noses.”

The Race Card on December 8, 2009 at 2:48 PM

Good catch, Ed. Robinson is contending that African-American women of questionable morals should have the right to be used in callously exploitative serial fashion by some rich whoredog cheating on both his wife as well as his many mistresses merely because the whoredog himself is one-quarter African-American? So, the infamously ingnominious “One-Drop Rule” employed by racists in this nation’s dark past to justify their discrimination against persons of any color at all, a rule which has apparently been ignominiously adapted by Mr. Robinson himself, now applies to..um, er semen distributed by adulterers as they exploit women too now, I take it? Eeeeew. Really, just…eeeeew!

The idea that racism or bigotry is a hallmark of the left but an anamoly on the right is ridiculous. Only a poisoned-partisan-hack could believe that. Historically, Republicans and Democrats have used and abused Black Americans.

Please, prove me wrong.

If you can’t identify any bigots on both sides, you are a liar or a fool. It’s amazing to me that most Republicans seem unwilling to acknowledge the uptick in racist or at least racially-denigrating behavior on behalf of conservatives and Republicans since Obama’s election. Doing so does not diminish Republicans. Yet Repubs are wholly unwilling to consider the beam in our own eye.

Because it isn’t true – there are a lot of very, very beautiful black women.

Woods appears to have bought into an “official” standard of beauty that is so conventional as to be almost oppressive.

Ummmmm, Dude used to sell and drive Buicks. The “Barbie Type” might be as Unconventional a thought as he could muster. Tiger at his freaky-deakyest.

Better Eugene Robinson headline might have been: “Woods can’t think outside the…… box“.

Does robinson, a dirtbag who wrote that there was cannabalism going on in new orleans during katrina, think tiger should sleep with more asian women?

The point is, this isn’t about race at all – and who is insisting on making it about race? Not conservatives.

Hypocrites on the left. Just hypocrites.

Eugene Robison: the epitome of affirmative action.

So we need an Affirmative Action program for adulterers? Great.

vcferlita on December 8, 2009 at 2:02 PM

Why not? We elected a president based on affirmative action.

It’s amazing to me that most Republicans seem unwilling to acknowledge the uptick in racist or at least racially-denigrating behavior on behalf of conservatives and Republicans since Obama’s election.

Really? Care to provide some examples? “Yo” doesn’t count.

And black women are EXTREMELY averse to interracial dating.

This is about SEX. Its not about politics. Its not about racism. Its not about lack of diversity. Its not about his childhood. Its not about his mom/dad blood mix. Its not about being part asian. Its not about being part black.

ITS ABOUT SEX. Is that so hard to understand?

Nope… not at all.

However…. please note, it is the Democrats that ALWAYS make it about color (race).

ALWAYS…. Democrats are racists.

And the most truly beautiful have white in their background somewhere.

Republicans seem unwilling to acknowledge the uptick in racist or at least racially-denigrating behavior on behalf of conservatives and Republicans since Obama’s election. Doing so does not diminish Republicans. Yet Repubs are wholly unwilling to consider the beam in our own eye.

You totally busted me at my own game. Nice work.

The first part of my statement is absolutely anecdotal and a result of nothing more than my perceptions. With no proof, it’s useless to my further point.

I do stand by my suggestion that acknowledging rather than ignoring bigots, who are aberrant to the Republican Party, is not wise. Republicans should confront the bigotry that is easily recognizable since we have a black President. Doing so does could not subject us to any more stereotyping as racist.

Taft had a smart approach. He challenged Republicans to challenge themselves with regard to race. I challenge Republicans to come up with some other type of a response to liberal racism other than to say “see how racist liberals are.”

Thanks for helping me to clarify.
