Not Tiger the dancehall artist from the late 80s early 90s. I'm talking about Tiger formerly Elridge Woods. Yea don't think I forgot ya real name son.
Anyway as everyone in the free world knows by now Tiger is probably at this minute on his way to get married in Barbados. Hooray for Barbados! Free press is usually a good thing. Of course all this talk about Barbados and the rich and famous marrying there will now lead to more rich and famous visiting, then wanting to buy land, then the land prices going up even more and a poor local son of the soil like me not being able to afford even an outhouse. Cuhdear!
So my whole blog on Tiger got totally messed up today. This morning I woke up and was ready to drop some serious issues in regard to Tiger's marriage to whatever she name; the Swedish nanny. No I wasn't going to go into the whole inter-racial thing or why there is a perception that black men when they reach a certain level seem to feel the need for white women on their arm. Hey that is the perrogative of Elridge and whoever else wants to do that. I ant got no problems with that. In fact when I get rich and famous and Halle Berry, Gabrielle Union, Sanna Latham, Mary J Blige and all dem gal so already accounted for don't hate me when I marry Jessica Alba. Oh wait a minute she mixup mixup so she don't really count. Oh wait another minute I already married too, I almost forgot. Oh well you know when you rich and famous you have to change spouses, its a given.
Anyways what I was going to rant on about though was Tiger marrying this nanny. The woman is a nanny, a domestic, the hired help. What is he doing? Hold on now, don't cuss me yet. I'm, not saying she is beneath him or anything so......well not directly anyways because social status should not play any part in love. But my issue was why is it that a man like Tiger with big money,class, prestige and all sort of big willy-ness will marry a woman who ant bringing nothing to the table besides a pretty face BUT (and this is a big ol butt like LL used t rap about) say the roles were reversed and it was a rich woman in Tiger's position. That rich woman wouldn't in most cases even chat with the hired help. She could be lonely, lonely, lonely and talking with her girlfriends every day about how there ant no good men left out there, all the good men gone or gay or married or in wheelchairs or does talk Chinese language that she don't understand. Meanwhile Fred the Butler might be there walking around next to her every day looking real real nice in his uniform press crisp with his shirt tail tucked in and his face clean shaven and smelling sweet and is a smart fellow that given half a chance would give her a good conversation and be real nice and care for her and treat she like a queen. But no all she seeing is the uniform serving her drinks while she chatting with the rich crowd and not the man and in the meanwhile she complaining about how the good men more scarce than pork in Saudi Arabia.
So I was going to talk about that but then I realize that the girl is a model so that trumps the nanny aspect. My wife sit down and laugh at me because she know I was warming up to let loose, run amok if you will on the women but finding out that the woman is a model was like the security frisk me and took away my AK-47 and ammo and now obviously I cant go on about her nannying.
BUT (and this but so big it is a budunkadunk) she didn't know I find another gun, recharge the ammo clip and I still firing because I just had a thought on how to save my argument.
So here it is. Tiger (a man) meets the nanny (a woman obviously not of his riches, status etc) when she was nannying (remember that tune nanny wine down low?) and he check her out, talk to her then found out she is a model and they hit it off and bram two or three years later don't look but they are getting married. Everyone follow that?
NOW say it was a rich woman lets call her "Leopardess" (cause she cant be tigress cause that is the Swedish nanny). Now say the situation switch up and "Leopardess" see a young fellow at a little high society function as a security guard. Do you really think she is going to cozy up to this fellow and find out that he is more than a security guard he is a fellow with potential trying to raise some money to put himself through lets say Law school. You think Leopardess was going to do that? You feel she would even notice this fellow? No she is going to see him and dismiss him one time and go on chatting with the friends about how there are too few good men out there left. I lie?
So after all of this lotta long talk and illustration with Tiger and "leopardess" the point of the matter is why is it that men will give any woman a chance but women all about this status thing with the fellows. How come women wont give a poor fellow with potential a chance like how Tiger do the Swedish nanny.
Ya see the double standard?
