Al Sharpton Blasts Tiger Woods for Lack of Mistress Diversity
In a shocking development in the Tiger Woods sex scandal, the Rev. Al Sharpton is criticizing Woods for his "Lack of mistress diversity," the black spiritual leader said in a press conference today.
Sharpton claims that the lack of African-American women among Woods' harem will have a "negative affect on the black community, specifically young black girls," he read from a prepared statement.
"Why is it that a man who calls himself black can't bring himself to cheat on his wife with a black woman?" said Sharpton, speaking to a group of supporters in Harlem, New York. "What does it say to young black girls everywhere when you pass them over? Shame on you, Tiger Woods. What would your daddy say?"
Sharpton, who has long championed taking black women as mistresses, said that today's black athletes need to stop neglecting black women when it comes to extramarital affairs, and should follow the examples of positive black role models such as Jesse Jackson and Martin Luther King, Jr., both of whom cheated on their wives with black women.
Sharpton also stressed that cheating with African-American women would help the black community financially by giving black girls the chance to sell their stories to tabloids and gossip magazines, which often results in multi-thousand-dollar payments for the "exclusive story" being told, even though media consumers say they're not interested in the story and aren't reading any bulletins, such as this one.
"I'm not asking you to not cheat on your wives," Sharpton said. "I'm just asking you to give back to your own community."
Sharpton would not comment on how many black mistresses he currently has, saying only "The story isn't about me."
