Tiger Woods-Barack Obama/Jeremiah Wright-The Double Standard

Barack Obama can be pals with Jeremiah Wright and Otis Moss III after thier racist statements, and the accusation of lynching, but a White Announcer gets suspended for the use of the word lynching...anyone else see a serious DOUBLE STANDARD in play on this?
PGA: Tiger Woods' 'lynching' controversy alive again

A picture of a dangling noose on the cover of the Jan. 19 issue of Golfweek magazine has re-ignited the issue over suspended Golf Channel anchor Kelly Tilghman and her comments about Tiger Woods.

While covering the Mercedes-Benz Championship in Hawaii on Jan. 4, Tilghman joked with analyst Nick Faldo that players hoping to challenge Woods, who is half African-American and half Asian, may have to “lynch him in a back alley."

Tilghman apologized privately to Woods and during a telecast two days later and was ultimately suspended for two weeks for "offensive language." Woods’ agent said the “story was a non-issue,” but Golfweek's editors — along with the Rev. Al Sharpton, who on Jan. 9 told CNN Tilghman should be fired — thought differently.
