The ongoing spat between pro golfers Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia got ugly on Tuesday when Garcia made a racist remark in reference to Woods.

The drama started when Garcia accused Woods of distracting him during the Players’ golf Championship in May. Ever since then Garcia and Woods have traded barbs and avoided each other. But things got nasty when Garcia was asked if he would invite Woods over for dinner during the U.S. Open in June.

“Sure. We’ll have him ’round every night,” Garcia allegedly said. “We will serve fried chicken.”

Tennis superstar Serena Williams was disqualified from the U.S. Open in Flushing Meadow, NY for getting gangster with a line judge during the semifinals on Saturday. The line judge picked the wrong time to call a questionable foot fault on Serena who was already having a bad day.

What got into Serena? She must have thought she was still on the streets of Compton when she pointed a racket at the tiny Asian line judge and screamed, “If I could, I would take this f***ing ball and shove it down your f***ing throat!”

We can all agree that was probably the wrong choice of words for her to use what with 25 hot mics surrounding the court and cameras rolling all over the venue. I’ve never seen Serena so gully, but then I don’t watch much tennis anymore either.

I recall a time back in the day when John McEnroe used to throw fits and rackets all over the court. He not only cussed out the line judges and the umpires frequently, but he verbally abused the ball boys too. Still, I don’t remember John ever getting tossed from the court.

But this is 2009, and you’d best believe that if you’re black — and your name is not Barack Obama — you’re not getting a pass this year or for the next few years going forward. White guilt ended when Obama was elected. So get used to it.
