  •  Sergio motivation: Jealousy more than racism (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    I have followed Sergio career the last 10+ years and one can clearly tell, he knows he hasn't met expectations. He was supposed to be the guy who challenges Tiger for 1, 2 or even 3 decades when he came up years ago. But instead, people barely mention his name in any meaningful way.
    The comment is racist, no doubt about it. There is nothing to defend here.
    But I think we need to really try to understand the man before calling him a racist. I'm of the opinion that we can't judge someone by a one single sentence. We need to look at a pattern, a history, a trail of remarks or actions to really make a strong statement like that person.
    At this point, I'm not willing to label Sergio a racist. I just don't know enough about the person. However, there is no doubt in my mind that his comment/joke is a racist comment.
    Tough month for Sergio ... but I hope he grows and learns from this. We all do make mistakes and we are define by how we deal with the consequences of our mistakes.
