Tilgham: How You Gonna Blame This One On Hip Hop ?

How Ya Gonna Blame Hip Hop For this One?

I am sure by now, you have heard about Kelly Tilghman, the golf announcer chick, saying that young golfers should "lynch Tiger Woods in a back alley."

Now, I know that her PR people are runnin' around scrambling for ways to blame this one on Hip Hop, as that seems to be the trend.

Michael Richards drops multiple "N bombs"...

Blame Hip Hop.

Don Imus says "nappy headed ho's"...

Blame Hip Hop.

Gas prices are at a record high...

Well, you get the point.

But this is a tough one, since most rappers don't bring up what happened during slavery as white guilt may have a negative impact on their CD sales.

I can still see her PR people frantically googlin' all the rap lyrics from the last 20 years trying to find a lynch lyric..

."Well, let's see..Blacks do always talk about "hangin' with their homeboys"

"And didn't that actor guy, Ice Cube once have a group called The Lynch mob?"

I know that some of ya'll are sayin'"There he goes bein' all sensitive again..."

But if she had said that a Jewish golfer needed to be put in a gas chamber or a Japanese golfer needed to be bombed, would she have only gotten a brief suspension ?

Sometimes genocide by any other name is still genocide!
