Hey, where the white women at?
Blazing Saddles (1974). Bart (Cleavon Little) to the KKK while pretending to have been captured: “Hey, where the white women at?”
Years later (2012) we get the answer. They’re on the golf course.
You see, there are these institutions called historically black colleges and universities (often referred to as HBCU) and these schools have their student athletes (golfers) participate in something called the PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship.
The founders’ goal was to elevate the game of golf in minority colleges and universities by giving each a chance to compete in a championship after being denied opportunities to compete in NCAA Collegiate golf events… This National Collegiate Championship has developed into one of The PGA’s key diversity initiatives.
After being denied opportunities to compete?! That likely means this: didn’t golf well enough to qualify for.
And if one of the Ten Commandments was “Thou shall have diversity initiatives,” the left would quit screaming about so-called separation of church and state.
But just what happened at the aforementioned celebration of athletic diversity?
The men of [HBCUs] Texas Pan-American and the women of Bethune-Cookman each won for the second time in the past three years. Neither school has an African-American on its roster. Half of Bethune-Cookman’s six golfers, in fact, are European.
Maybe there’s a South African-American golfer out there somewhere that could be added for diversity bonus points? A French-African? Or perhaps some white Hispanics? Maybe an aged zero percent Cherokee (with high cheekbones)?
