tilghman suspended over "lynching" remark

The Golf Channel has suspended announcer Kelly Tilghman for two weeks for her "lynching" remark regarding Tiger Woods: Golf Channel anchor suspended for remark.

As we mentioned here earlier this week, Tilghman joked during a broadcast that young golfers who wanted to challenge Woods as the sport's No. 1 player should "lynch him in a back alley."

Honestly, what compels people to say thing like this, even in jest? Personally, I think she should've been fired. But it looks like she'll be back in two weeks, and everything will resume as normal, and everybody will act like nothing happened, and all will likely be forgotten. Until the next time around when yet again some idiot says something racist...
