As a descendant of Irishmen who arrived in this country to signs saying, "Irish Not Allowed" and "Irish Need Not Apply" to be forced into the first ghettos on the continent and knowing that 25,000 of the slaves in the Caribbeans where Willie Lynch practiced his trade were Irishmen sold by the British,

I can safely say that Kelly has been falsely accused and lynched by an ignorant, angry mob.

This was the same ignorant, angry mob, that lynched the Duke lacrosse players.

The same ignorant, angry mob is now chasing Ron Paul.

Sooner or later, intelligent individuals will become tired of the social oppression, break free of their collective chains, and stand up to this mob as freemen.

Kelly Tilghman’s words were inappropriate. However if Kelly Tilghman is fired, then there should be a boycott on all minority-owned businesses for a period of ten days from the date she is fired. Also included in the boycott: any movies having minorities as leading actors and any TV shows hosted by minorities or having minorities as the leading characters. Excluded from the boycott: Tiger Woods, since he’s apparently put this behind him. Also, any other minority movie actor, TV actor or host, or minority business owner who specifically states that Kelly Tilghman should NOT be fired should be excluded from the boycott. This boycott should be undertaken by individuals, without any organization overseeing it. After the ten days, it should be business as usual, as much as that is possible.

What Kelley did was Assinine . She is an intelligent woman who should of known better, but the Golf Channel is the real culprit here. They handled this situation by reacting instead of acting. She said this on Friday but the GC does nothing until Sharpton comes in the picture and gives her 2 weeks off (with or without pay?) They should of acted immediatley and if they decide to fire her they will be once again only reacting to the pressures of there own media and Al Sharpton.

While I believe 100% what Kelly said has no racial or hurtful intent, nevertheless, what she said simply reflects the surrounding she was brough up in.

Suppose you owned the Golf Channel. You can put Kelly back on and have problems with sponsors as well more media exposure or you can terminate her. The truth is the easy way to make this go away is the latter. Kelly really isn't all that important to TGC. If TGC were a public company she would have no chance but since it isn't and that Arnold Palmer and Tiger like her she might have a tiny hope but I'm predicting she is history. Unfair ? Yes but that is the reality today.

Tiger said this is no big deal...case
closed!

Al Sharpton [an FBI informer with overly-
processed hair] should be ignored.

Ron,
I too noticed Rude's comments and agree that he missed the point as many seem to. The comment was clearly a racial reference and for the Golf Channel not to "get it" and do something early on, and get Kelly out the crossfire with a genuine comment that reflected the true nature of the comment even if it was a "joke." And an appropriate punishment, like having to listen to an hour of Sharpton's voice and BS. And a month suspension.

Well, Fred,

I actually have been accepted into Mensa. Mensa, incidentally, takes no positions on any matters.
