    Default According to Wikipedia... Wesley Snipes is Blacker than Tiger Woods... Thoughts?

    Don't know whereabouts this belongs but...a friend found this after typing 'blacker' into wikipedia to find Terence Blacker, an author, only to find the sentence 'Wesley Snipes is Blacker than Tiger Woods' in the disambiguations. After my original thought of 'what the hell?!' I figured this should be brought to wider attention, as Wikipedia is being borderline racist, thoughts?..

    Are you Black?

    Most likely, knowing Wiki, it's some unfounded thought put in that will eventually be erased. I think it has to do with how closey each are aligned to the interests of the Black race.

    The irony there is that Wesley is real dark but has an Asian wife, if I'm not mistaken.

    Some Black people are passionate about racial issues, and feelings can develop over things like interracial marriage.

    It will probably be editted out in no time. This is wikipedia. It does not singularly be anything. It is an ever changing mess of statements injected by at least hundreds of thousands of different people.

    No, i'm not, but I was hoping to see whether the statement was taken offensively here to see whether it would be best to leave it there or draw it to the site's attention and have it taken off ASAP. I mean no offense by this thread, sorry.

    Offense or no offense, it's a totally unverified claim and I doubt it was sourced. If it was sourced, the source was probably extremely deficient in authority or credibility. The very concept is absurd and most likely unverifiable. It should be removed on those grounds.

    Tiger Woods is like a Oreo, black on the outside and white on the inside.
