Marco's blog An [almost] daily rant

The Orwellian overloads at the NYT have sacked even the sports page, writing, "But today, Woods, whose multiethnic background has always been notable in a sport lacking diversity". Lacking diversity? While I prefer to watch sports, I have seen enough golf to know that the major tournaments attract players (if not athletes) from five continents. I also know that Japan was golf-mad, especially during their bubble economy. Would the Times have written that the NBA lacks diversity? Would they have said that world-class table tennis lacks diversity? On the plus side, it is interesting to read that the self-described cablinasian was able to overcome his "multiethnic background" to become "the first black golfer to win the Masters".
