Augusta National Golf Club: Not a proud moment according to Marc LaMont Hill
AOL On - 'Condoleezza Rice Should Be Ashamed Of Herself'
Actually, according to Prof Hill, Condi Rice should be ashamed of herself for accepting membership to an all white-male club which other blacks have been denied.
Should she have rejected the invitation to be the first FEMALE member, who is also black?
Isn't Tiger Woods black, or did the Augusta Golf Club see his Asian side?

2009 Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29er upgraded with 36T cassette and Stan's Arch EX rims and tubeless. Considering a 1x10 upgrade
2013 Cannondale CAADX-6 Tiagra upgraded to 32T cassette and Stan's Alpha 400 rims and tubeless
2008/2009 Burton T6 156cm with Burton Triad Bindings & DC Judge boots
Augusta is the mantle piece of Southern White Male exclusivity
I can see both sides of this coin
one nation, under surveillance with liberty and justice for few
still not figgering on biggering
Nothing wrong with Augusta National Golf Club having a token African-American/female honorary member. Lots of corporate boards do the same. It's good PR.
Augusta is a private club. They can do what they like with membership.
There are organizations that are on the flip side. All women's gyms. Traditionally black colleges. The Girl and Boy Scouts. The Hibernian Club. The VFW. Various professional organizations.
There are good reasons to limit memberships. Or have a two tiered 'associate member' status.
As long as its a private club and doesn't use any public money, resources, etc... It's their prerogative.
To me, Ms. Rice would be a hypocrit if she turned down membership at Augusta, but then was fine with all women's gyms.
