ABWW Sterotype Buster of the Day: Elin Nordegren Woods
One of the biggest put downs about black woman is that we are too aggressive. Perhaps we can we rethink that after the Tiger Woods affair(s). Tiger has spent most of his professional life distancing himself from his African and Asian heritage. Have you ever seen a picture of him with an African American or Asian woman, besides his mother? The only time Tiger mentioned his African heritage was to brag about his “size.” Although Tigers walk of shame is over, the image of the caliblasian acting out in a way that would have gotten his grandfather lynched will be a punchline for years to come. Elin Wood’s “rescue” of her fleeing husband has quickly receded from the national conscious, I want to remind everyone she went after her man with a GOLF CLUB! Isn’t that a black woman’s thing? Maybe we should rethink our stereotypes when those who represent the epitome of “ideal” womanhood do the acting in away that knocks them off their pedestal!
