Who are YOU to Call this Nigga “Arrogant”?

Like everybody, Black, white and indifferent, I was ready to pile on Tiger Woods for his DUI arrest yesterday until I read that one of the arresting officers described him as “arrogant”.

I got to wondering how the fuck did some cop get to thinking that he was qualified to make such a determination?

Make no mistake, you can only ascribe onto someone “arrogance” if you’re in a position that is clearly superior to theirs yet they carried themselves as if the opposite is the case.

Otherwise, you’re just looking at somebody who’s attitude you may or may not agree with.

But if some 12th man from the Developmental League were to walk past LeBron James, look him up and down, shake his head and stroll off, LeBron would have a good case for considering that brother “arrogant”.

But if you’re some fucking traffic cop who, odds are, has never solved a murder case, has never rushed into a burning building to save a life, has probably never even rescued a kitten from a tree, then what gives you the right to think that no less than the 3rd best golfer of all time should greet and treat you like you’ve got some kinda authority?

Again, make no mistake; cops aren’t The Law.

They don’t even represent The Law.

They represent Law Enforcement.

They are tools, entitled to no more respect than a fucking hammer.

Most white people consider them laughable not only because they’re lowly civil servants, but because their salaries render them a blue collar jokes.

That’s why an unrepentant thief and crook like Bernie Madoff can literally push and shove his way through crowds after he’d been convicted of ripping off billions; no respect.

But if I’m the one and only Tiger Woods and you’re one of 900,000 cops nationwide and one, I might add, that hasn’t even made detective, and you expected me to go into some “yessuh massa” routine, you must be out yo goddamn mind!

And make not a third mistake; I’ve never been a big fan of Tiger Woods.

His self-descriptive “Cablinasian” meaning he’s Caucasian, Black, Indian and Asian is crazier than saying he’s from Pluto if only because with a Black father and a Thai mother, where the fuck did the “Caucasian” come in and why was it first?

And of course, after all the brouhaha over the arrest itself blew over, this nigga was out there issuing apologies like some punk afraid of losing even more endorsement dollars when at this point, he really shouldn’t care.

Still, legally, I’m stuck with this fool despite my own belief in self-determination – gotta call Bruce Jenner “Caitlyn”, don’t I? – and in this particular case, it’s easy to see how his own treatment parallels the treatment of all Black Americans when it comes to law enforcement.

Cops know they couldn’t pull certain shit with white people; white people wouldn’t take it.

White complaints are taken seriously.

Them muhfuccas can have a cop’s badge, gun and job.

But like that shit Mark Wahlberg said in The Departed about why Leonardo DiCaprio must have decided to become a cop, for the chance to “slam a nigger’s head through a plate glass window”

it’s almost like there’s an unspoken script out there for how cops aren’t only allowed to proceed, but how they’re expected to proceed when encountering niggas; they act like “authorities”, we act either scared or resentful.

Only Tiger wouldn’t play the role assigned to him.

And for the first time since he’s been in the public eye, I’m actually proud of him.
