In 2005, Woods - who is of Caucasian, Black, American Indian, and Asian ancestry - recalled a traumatic incident that first made him aware of his racial identity in an interview he gave for Charles Barkley's 2005 book "Who's Afraid of a Large Black Man?"

He said: "A group of sixth graders tied me to a tree, spray-painted the word 'nigger' on me, and threw rocks at me. That was my first day of school. And the teacher really didn't...

Craziest Athletes Of All Time

Terrell Owens
Remember when athletes were just outrageous? They would say outlandish things like when Charles Barkley said, "Man, everything gets blamed on the Clintons, every single thing in this world. I think Bill Clinton shot JFK, too." And they would do outrageous things like when Deion Sanders decided to create an MC Hammer-like persona called "Prime Time" and wear pimp suits and flashy jewelry. These days athletes are beyond outrageous, they're cuckoo. From shooting themselves at night clubs with their own guns to assaulting their TV personality girlfriends, today's athletes are just crazy.

Barkley. Lebron. Shaq. Kobe. And of course, His Airness, Jordan. Sound familiar?

John McLendon. Clarence "Big House" Gaines. Bob Love. Earl Lloyd. John Chaney. Who?

Will The Candidates' Celebrity Supporters Have Any Impact On The Presidential Election?

January 23rd, 2008 11:38am EST
Barack Obama
Celebrities have long made their political affiliations known, to both the disgruntlement and delight of fans. They've turned on-air time into opportunities to express distaste for our current administration; they've used their fame to help their chosen candidates. Like it or not, some celebrities never turn down a chance to talk politics. And, like it or not, the public often listens.

Politicians have shown their discontent with glitterati appearing in front of Congress (Julia Roberts, Christie Brinkley, Michael J. Fox and even Kevin Richardson of the Backstreet Boys have just done th...
