Tiger Woods definitely has the right to be apolitical if he wants to be.It would be nice for African-American youth if he set an example by expressing his opinion in a public forum he definitely does not have an obligation to do so.After all he lives in America where voting is definitely optional.
Yes, it is right that Tiger Woods refuses to declare a public stance regarding politics, because he is just a golfer, At that, he is not a golfer that is very successful anymore, and he is not one that people respect any more. Since his opinion on politics is not relevant, he does not need to offer it.
Even though a lot of people have mixed feeling against Tiger Woods for what he has done in the past and the way he acts on the golf course a times, it is still his right to refuse to speak to the public. I do not feel that is wrong of him.
It's perfectly okay for Tiger Woods to stay out of politics. He's not a politician and doesn't need to spew his views to an audience. With that in mind, nobody should penalize him for refusing to declare a public stance on various political issues. Every human being outside politics reserves the exact same rights as him.
Celebrities such as Tiger Woods have every right to stay out of politics. I may be in the minority, but I personally believe too many celebrities grandstand on politics and act like they know everything and that we need to follow what they think. It's nice for celebrities to remain neutral and know that their opinion should not hold sway over other Americans' opinions.
