Mr. and Mrs. Tiger Woods
Was it me or was there an aversion to displaying on TV when she kissed him congrats after winning the Masters yesterday? This was their first kiss post-major victory as a married couple. Normally I would expect much to be said about something like that because it was really a sweet public moment for a very private couple. Normally when someone wins all of the news shows show clips of those kinda hugs again and again but I never saw it again. It's odd considering that she is also a model too. When I did see a clip it was the moment he hugged his mom and then they cut before he hugs his wife ELin. I only saw a picture on a website but that's it. Did anyone else notice this or am I just paranoid?

1. You aren't paranoid
Regular network television has never been comfortable with showing adult interracial relationships. Family (parent-child, siblings, etc.) relationships, OK. Anything that shows people of color on an equal level and upsets the status quo is verboten.

This is supposed to be the 21st Century. :banghead:
