Rush Limbaugh Says Tiger Woods' "Choice of Females" Hurts Blacks

Rush Limbaugh is weighing in on the Tiger Woods scandal and, as usual, his comments are being met with cries of racism.

On his radio show Tuesday, the conservative host talked about the "black frame of mind," and how it is being hurt by President Barack Obama's job performance, as well as Woods' "choice of females."

Here's what Limbaugh said:

"I got two more stories in the stack today about how black unemployment is through the roof. Black unemployment is terrible. The black frame of mind is terrible, they're depressed, they're down — Obama's not doing anything for 'em. How is that hoax and change workin' for ya? They're all livid. I mean, they thought there were gonna be an exact 180-degree economic reversal and it's done nothing but get bad for everybody, but they're especially upset about it because they look at him as one of them, and now they feel abandoned. And I'm sure Tiger Woods' choice of females not helping 'em out with their attitudes there either."

Gawker.com's reaction:

Ugh. It's not even worth parsing the bigoted stupidity in the above, but it is worth noting that, much like Obama, Tiger was once viewed as a post-racial prophet whose talent, good looks, and charm were supposed to break down barriers and teach us to love our fellow man. But when you're a racist, everything in the world becomes an exemplar of your hysterical racist beliefs, much like that one truism about the hammer and the nail.
