Social media is still buzzing about an Australian newspaper cartoonist's editorial cartoon of tennis superstar Serena Williams. The cartoonist, Mark Knight, depicted Serena as a caricature of an entitled, spoiled baby throwing a tantrum on the tennis court during her loss to Japan's Naomi Osaka on Saturday.

I didn't think the cartoon was racist the first time I saw it on Monday, because I viewed it from the perspective of a fellow artist who doesn't see racism in everything.

But now that I've taken off my glanced at the cartoon again (without rose-colored glasses on), I do see the elements of racism that is causing outrage among some Black people on social media.

To be honest, I did find it odd that the artist depicted biracial Naomi as a blonde white woman and chair umpire Carlos Ramos as a white man.

Even though the cartoon depicts exaggerated racist features -- and the artist appears to be arrogantly knowledgeable of that fact -- the cartoon should not be censored just to spare hurt feelings.

Editorial cartoons express the artists' opinions, and it is their job to provoke passionate debate and force viewers to think outside the box.

Typical of the liberal mindset, Twitter.com censored the cartoon and banned the artist for expressing his personal view -- rather than leave the drawing up to spark healthy debate about racism in America and the world.

The arts and books are the last forms of freedom of expression in a civilized society.

Remember when Hitler ordered the burning of books to exercise his dominance and control over free-thinking Germans? Amazon.com has already started banning books by conservative writers.

Art is objective, and it should be free of influence by subjective opinions and hurt feelings.

We are all in danger of losing our freedoms in America if the arts and books are destroyed to appease liberals who see offensive symbols everywhere they look.

    Is she pregnant? Looks like a bump under her boobs? That could be why her game may have been off. She has defined abs so I'm questioning the bulge.

    and I have yet to see a decent write up on the winner...... Haven't seen it yet ... instead folks have turned their attention towards the fawk shyt ..... Naomi did that !!!!!.... beat her for theeeeee second time .... cut the shyt and lift Naomi up ...

    I'm not going to lie. Censorship bothers me. I think that Twitter, IG and FB try to take measures to prevent or mitigate cyber bullying. I understand the motivation, I just think we lose more than we gain. With all the algorithms and computer science nerds, you would think they would be able to come up with a code that would identify targeted comments/usernames oppose to banning particular users from saying particular words/phrases.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I'm sorry but controversy sells and the Williams sisters will be controversial until they die.

    Besides bringing power to the women's game they have dominated a mostly white sport for the better part of two decades and people will always talk about their physiques.

    Furthermore if Serena had won she would have tied Court for the most all time Grand Slam singles so yeah the focus will be on Serena until she retires.

  • Rayne

    Folk need to cut the shit! They don’t know it’s racist yet they still do it and then apologize later. Can WE live?!? Damn!

    I was worried that she'd get pregnant again since she said that her first pregnancy was an accident.

    This is more of the things Serena has had to Endure as a black woman and has gone through since the beginning of her Tennis Career back many years ago. This is just some of the types of things she has had to endure as a woman of Color. And when she out lasted her 15 Minutes, and finally got them dang white, and different colored Beads out of her hair, she and Venus, and cleared the Court where the other Tennis Players could walk on the Tennis Court without getting them Dang Beads in their Tennis shoes, it has been Pure Adulterated Wins By the Williams Sisters.

    The cartoonist was clearly only focused on ridiculing and mocking Serena. I also wondered why Naomi was drawn as a blonde haired white girl.

  • hi-liter

    What white azz has Serena and her sister kissed?

  • iWasteTime

    1. If it was an caricature, why is the greatest female athlete. Periodt. The only person depicted that way?
    2. Her features are primate like
    3. The other part black female athlete in the cartoon isn't depicted as a black person. She is the same complexion as the Umpire and again, not a "caricature".
    4. Said part Black athlete also has a full head of blonde hair.
    5. Wouldn't the umpire, the other major part of the issue be a caricature

  • Mark mcharm

    Oh come on are you serious Venus never dates black men and had the nerve to say all lives matter , serena marries white ,has a white man's baby and tries to be pro-black. Cut it out folks see the hypocrisy maybe blind supporters don't but most do.

  • iWasteTime

    It's the same level, she just started talking about it and bringing it to everyone's attention. Like the Pee tests. Everytime they show up she tweets, "they're here"

  • hottlanta

    Serena never apologize for defending your name that is how u make your money. He accussed u of cheating. Dad taught u 2 dot your i and cross all your tees. I have had 2 protect my professional name as well. They hate u bcas 2 black girls from Compton changed the game. Sure John McEnroe got fined for his antics n they still work with him and respect him 2 this day.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    There are levels of racism.... this hits a couple.. not only the grossly over depiction of a black woman, but the contrast of the caracters as well or did they just HAAPPPEN to forget that the winners color almost match Serena's..
    Then there is the aspect of tone..Serena spoke her mind to a white man and it was instantly turned into this. Yet white MEN can curse the ref out throw a WHOLE as fit and yet receive zero deductions...hmmm...
    This is the truth. they were waiting for a spot in her Armour .. for years they have tried to knock her down from her greatness...she is tested more than any other athlete for drugs, now that she shows she is a strong person and not afraid to call bullshit, boom she gets the typical Angry Black Woman label...
    They are using the same tactics they use on us when it comes to ethical treatment to show her you might be rich, you might be married to a white man, you might be the greatest tennis player EVER..but in the end to us youre just another nigga with a talent we make money off of and can take it away as easily as changing the narrative from Serena the greatest tennis player to Serena the Hot Headed Angry Black woman..(don'f forget we still mad that you represent Nike too) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8f9a0fb1108f6da94e437504856c87d66fac13e544a85959d27572aafed4ba03.jpg

    Citing an accident grinds my gears when women say that. Any woman who is pregnant in 2017-2018 wants to be pregnant. Its too much shit out here to prevent pregnancy. This isnt the 50s. If you are fukkin you are able to birth

  • hi-liter

    Have you ever thought that black men prolly don't wanna date Venus, that's why she dates white men. We all know Serena dated several black men, but married white. Did Common or any black guy she dated ask her to marry? Prolly not as far as I know.

  • SpillyNillie

    THIS BULLSHIT IS RACIST! And yes I know what a caricature is...

  • Mark mcharm

    I don't think black men have a problem with dating Venus she just chooses not to.

    You best to put that phone down...they prolly need help in the drive thru.

  • Joy King

    This is obvious racism. I didn’t even recognize the two white people off to the side. Especially the other tennis player, who is almost just as brown as Serena in real life. But not here in cartoon world. Then to over exaggerate Serena’s features and try to depict her as an angry black woman. All of that, is blatant racism. Personally, I feel a lot of those critics are just jealous at what an incredible athlete Serena is and she’s a black woman too...the nerve of her.

    Serena Just Know and Remember that the biggest wall you will have to climb is the one you build in your mind, for Yourself. Never let your mind talk you out of your dreams, are trick you into giving up. Never let your mind become the greatest obstacle to your further success in Tennis. Keep your mind on the right track, and the rest of you will follow! Try to Ignore all the talk, and somehow make yourself move on. I know it's hard to let go when you are feeling like they are already out to get you. The Racism/Sexism has followed you your entire Career. And you have because You will speak up for yourself the cards are stacked against you. You have got to know that through all the fog, and clouds the Sun will shine for you again. Keep your Focus , and keep your eyes on the pathway ahead of you, and Remember You have come this far by hard work, and your Dedication to the game.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Racism at its finest

  • LeeSeeCee

    I told my husband that Serena is TIRED of being the damn target for any and everything. He was not a fan of her outbursts and really felt that it diminished Naomi's victory as she really was handing Serena her a** on that court. Of course, I had to point out that if the chair had WARNED Serena that she was in danger of getting penalized a game, Serena would have taken her "L" and moved along. She was rightly pissed. Male players have called ref's names for YEARS and were never/have never been penalized a game. I really believe that these folks want to make an example out of Serena. They are trying to find a way to control her and her narrative. Not happening. Even Billie Jean King was outraged by the blatant sexism.
    Now about this 'cartoon', there are several different layers to the racism all of which were pointed out in the write up. Serena's features were exaggerated to resemble a primate, Naomi looked like a white woman (which she CLEARLY ISN'T) and the chair was white as well which in he CLEARLY isn't. Their skin tone was light enough that the cartoonist white-washed them of their ethnicity. BS!! What the entire f**k ever... Just DISRESPECTFUL all around.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I feel like that too. It’s seems like ppl look at her different

  • dontgetblocked

    I've examined this caricature thoroughly and I don't find it racist. When I think of Serena and how she behaved..this is what I see in my mind. She acted like a big mouth bully that threw a temper tantrum. I think Naomi had blonde hair because she's worn it blonde before. The umpire did what a lot of white employers do when we as black women act at work like Serena did on the court...just let her have her way; avoid her; don't promote her; and finally fire her.

    Instead of being offended, we as black women need to modify what we do. For example, black people criticized Nicki Minaj for not acting ratchet like Cardi B. Huh! Cardi B had her behind hanging out naked trying to fight. WTF? These aggressive, violent images of ourselves are what we put out there. Yes, white woman fight...but they also have more positive images out there. On an international stage, Serena acted like an animal just like Cardi B. Naomi came off looking attacked by the big black bully. She should have been happy instead she cried. Why? Because her fellow black sister whom she admired acted a damn fool on that court. The crowd even booed this 20 year old woman all because a 36 year old woman didn't get her way.

    NAOMI WON THE US OPEN. SHE MADE HISTORY! WE NEED TO CELEBRATE HER....not defend Serena's temper tantrums. NO! THIS caricature is NOT a racist image. THIS IS A MIRROR OF SERENA'S GHETTO BEHAVIOR.
    (PS--Don't direct your hate at me. This is MY OPINION on the topic. Feel free to state your opinion without the attacks. Last of all--read my name)

  • Faithz

    This Cartoonist Drawing isn't any worst than the many People that is black just like you and your Family people like the Cartoonist who are pressed , and Bitter because they are mad that Serena was/is a Tennis Ace, who has Won over , and over again, and they do not like that , and they would rather have her face any place but in the Winner circle of Tennis. They feel that you have made enough Money, Yet Federer who is very mild mannered, and a white Fellow who is age 37 , has just Signed a 300 Million Deal For ten years, with Uniqlo That is over 30 Million a Year, and they are calling Federer one of the greatest Tennis Champions in History But that is on the Men side, What about on the Women side Like Roger, Serena We know that you too have great love for life, Culture and Humanity. Hang in there Serena.

  • chaisun

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I am not focusing on the negative, but Serena has also been targeted off the court also with an usually high number of drug tests and she spoke out about it over the summer.

    Maybe Serena got sick and tired of being sick and tired and it all came crashing down on her during that match.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    I'm exhausted. We already know...they don't like black people. I don't care for them either.

  • Faithz

    So many who are celebrating Serena Outburst, I say I wonder what the next Chapter in Serena True Life is going to be like. She has been under the light for so many years now, and even when she was getting started She was able to stand up tall against "All Odds" and she's much stronger now even though , she lost it at the Open, and Rightfully so. Many want her to get kicked in the as , and smile like she love it It's not over and done for Serena Yet , and If Serena Wasn't the Legend she is in Tennis then Nobody would even be talking about her!

  • TMW

    I don’t think this has anything to do with liberalism and conservatism. It’s about not letting hate win. That’s all I got.

  • Faithz

    I think they meant Serena and Venus Kicked many white players as.

  • Jersey Girl

    Thank you! Naomi is also dealing with her own racism as they continuosly ignore her Haitian nationality. She continues to appropriately correct them that she identifies as Haitian American! Serena was losing and got frustrated. Why we not talking about how since she got with the white man.. she has not been able to catch a break. Maybe her melinated powers have been diluted since sharing energies with him! Hmm/

  • Coffee1st

    Call it what it is.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    They are after her because earlier this summer she called them out for testing her more often than either the men or the women.

    Someone did a breakdown and some of the top players hadn't even been tested this year while Serena had already been tested multiple times and one time the guy showed up at her home at 8 a.m. and waited for her twelve damn hours.

    So yeah I think the feelings of being persecuted came crashing down when the umpire gave her that penalty and maybe she felt as if she was being punished for speaking out about being over-tested.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Hey but check out how the other folks on here acting like it does not happen

  • Quitedeliteful

    leave the drawing up to spark healthy debate about racism in America and the world.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    That's the problem -- we are always talking. What we need now is action. Leave the cartoon up and don't say another word about race. Talk about financial empowerment instead. The cartoonist has Serena looking less than human while the other two look like 'civilized' people. If you don't like his work then don't buy this newspaper. Don't click on the articles and don't support advertisers who support this periodical. If it was a caricature against a Jewish superstar you can bet they would use their financial clout to make their displeasure known. When we learn to do the same thing folks will think twice about deliberately degrading or insulting us...

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I don't maybe Serena doesn't have her period often.

    I remember watching something about some female athletes miss their periods if they are training intensely so maybe that's why Serena didn't think she needed to take birth control.

  • Sassie

    The cartoon is racist and it was MEANT to be racist. The "artist" knew EXACTLY what he was doing. He depicted one of the best living athletes of our time as a FAT big lipped crybaby and drew Osaka as a frail WHITE woman (when she's CLEARLY half black). But again, this is how black folks are seen by other races, PERIOD...racism is alive and well and it's not going anywhere. We will deal. And we will get through it.

  • Sassie

    And I ain't attacking you, because you CAN state your opinion. And I also don't care about being blocked cuz I don't even KNOW you and can care less about that, too.

  • Faithz

    Thank for that truth, and Whites will never in their lives understand the deep feeling blacks get about Racism because they are not black.

  • Sassie

    That is EXACTLY what's going on. I think Serena is just plain freaking tired of the blatant racism against her. And she just SNAPPED that day. Too bad it had to be during her match with Osaka though, cuz that girl played her young ass off. Hats off to her for sure!

  • freelancepimp .

    Why did he draw a blonde woman in the back ground and not her most recent opponenet? Why would he insuate that someone needs to let her win? Those features are a little rough.

    I actually get what he is saying about her temper tantrum (whether I agree or not) but the problem is the racist imagery. He might not have been trying to be racist but is his racist perceptions, (which seem to be second nature) came through. He can't help it. This is one of those cases where someone should take sensitivity training.

  • Sassie

    U said it. BOOM!

  • Faithz

    Perhaps they will treat Osaka like shes any race but black, and she want have to worry about ever being treated like Serena has been treated, over the Years. And I a, sure that a lot of the things said and did nasty toward Serena is because shes so dang great on the tennis court, and she will speak up for herself . It's no wonder Osaka dad want Her to lean all the way toward her Mamas (Japanese) side of the family. Her dad know his black as don't count at all Just like they are trying so hard to dis credit serena for going smooth off.

    I am still wondering in the back of my mind How much would they have Fined Serena if she had really gone off and snatched Ramos little slack as by one leg , and swung his as across over to the other side of the Tennis Court.

  • hottlanta

    So serena néeds 2 b careful bcas she will represent black women n give us a bad name. So did that white rapper who just died from drugs give white people a bad name as drug addicts. They r making it clear that he is an addict not the whole white race.

  • Faithz

    Since Osaka dad is from Haiti I wonder if his papers are in order, because we know that is one of the Countries that Trump call 5hithole Countries.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    He eventually left before she got home.

  • Quitedeliteful

    The artist knew exactly what he was doing when he made the image of Serena sub-human while the other two were made to look like people. Images relay silent but powerful messages and while he can blame the monster-like body and facial exaggeration as a caricature, this delivers a blatant message of what he thinks of Serena and by extension Black Folks.

    Serena Williams spoke out on social media about the frequency with which she is selected for anti-doping tests. The 23-time Grand Slam champion had already been tested five times this year much more than any other top American women's tennis player, according to figures provided by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency database.

    I appreciate your perspective and your opinion on it but I disagree. Serena is an athletic built black woman who is not ugly or fat..yes, it was supposed to be a caricature of her but come on now...that image is racist and it was meant to be especially when you know the opponent is not a white woman with blonde hair...yes, she had outbursts that day but in NO way was it ghetto behavior...that is just crazy to say. She was articulate and direct when she approached the officials and there was NOTHING ghetto about it. Her breaking her racket was not ghetto and has happened before by PLENTY of WHITE tennis players...Ghetto is a state of mind and has NOTHING to do with whether a person is black, white or Chinese. The fact that you correlate a black woman having an outburst to 'ghetto behavior' disturbs me. Yes, we should be celebrating Naomi and not focusing on Serena's outbursts but make no mistake, when John McEnroe did it, NOBODY was saying it was ghetto behavior - I'm quite sure NOBODY - including you (I am assuming of course that you were around during the McEnroe era). While I really hate to even speak on the Nicki/Cardi nonsense, I have to...first of all Nicki has a ghetto mentality too...let's not get it twisted. She may not have been exhibiting her ghetto mentality in this altercation with Cardi but her behavior has always been "hood rat" in my opinion. Her calling out Miley on national tv at an award ceremony was nothing short of ghetto/hood rat mentality - not to mention she is MUCH OLDER than Miley. Have you seen how she treated Mariah Carey? Nothing short of ghetto/hood rat mentality...Have you ever heard Nicki speak? Have you seen the stink attitude she always seems to have...that is a ghetto mentality at best. Her whole mentality towards anyone that is even perceived as a threat is ghetto...Nicki is a whole TEN YEARS older than Cardi. She should be setting the example and trying to create unity in the female rap genre instead of trying to stop people from working with Cardi, throwing shade constantly and talking slick...mind you, this is not the first time someone has said this about Nicki...she has pulled these antics with Remy, Lil Kim and K Michelle...these things have been talked about way before this altercation with Cardi...that is ghetto mentality. Have you seen how Queen Latifah, MC Lyte and the rest conducted themselves back in the day? This is embarrassing. Even Lil Kim and Fox Brown's beef back in the day wasn't this ratchet.

    In order for Nicki to even come close to being the icon that she claims to be, I'm going to need her to spend less time on the internet and her Queen Radio talking nonsense about people, being bitter and nasty and less time behind the scenes threatening to not show up to places if her rivals are there or if they receive awards...that is PETTY, GHETTO, CHILDISH behavior. But I guess ghetto mentality, pettiness and childish is relative. What I may find ghetto mentality or petty/childish, may be the norm for you or someone else.

  • dru and neil

    No way is this about artistic integrity and offending delicate sensibilities. If this doesn’t have racist undertones, why is Osaka white? Why is the docile, calm, reasonable woman depicted as white even though she is mixed race, black and Asian? This cartoon was straight out of the 1930s....

  • dru and neil

    Well that to me, is her Haitian father’s fault. Just like Tiger Woods father didn’t instill a sense of pride in him as a mixed race, half black man, their father is comfortable doing the same, clearly. They are raised in a homogeneous country and using that as an excuse to not even give the girls his last name, saying they would be more accepted in Japanese society if they dismissed the Haitian heritage. I don’t see them correcting anybody when they are called solely Japanese. Besides, if they are Japanese citizens they are actually representing for Japan alone.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    He knew just what he was doing. This is really how he sees her and if that isn't racist then I don't know what is. If it was a black person did this to a white person it would have never made it to print

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 ?4FlavorsOfMe ?????CreoleMami?

    Osaka response- “Actually, I live in FL now. But, I mean, of course I’m very honored to be playing for Japan. But my dad’s side is Haitian, so represent. But um, yeah. I forget the rest of your question. Sorry!” her response was PRICELESS ... my aggrevation is more so with people who know what your background is but yet they pick one over the other or if they get mad at you for saying "I am Black but I come from a multi ethnic family background" I believe in reppin all ya sets but at the end of the day if black in there its nothing wrong with saying I am a Black woman or Black man ya know...

  • Faithz

    Exactly They sure did Fail with their Stupidity.

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    I agree. 1 drop rule says she is black. Her children will be considered black even if she marries any other race. Cant hide nor deny Melanin. One lady pointed out- she is Japanese.........I told her- Did you see her Kinky hair? Her hair had spook written all over it. lmao

  • Yup, I said it

    Its racists. Serena doesn't look like the European ideal of beauty and they are mocking her.

  • dontgetblocked

    I appreciate your response. Nicki has depicted ghetto behavior at times but nothing like what Cardi B did. Did you see her butt hanging out? My Gawd! As far as Serena, I understand your perspective but we have to be realistic. She is a huge, confident woman. When she broke her tennis racket, it was violent and scary to white people. Look at her muscles. A black woman acting that way is not positive in anyway. Yes, white men can do it. Of course they can. They make the rules. We all know that no more than three of us can gather at work or it becomes threatening. I like my job so I avoid congregating with too many blacks. Inevitably, somebody is going to get too loud and cackle and scream and it becomes unprofessional. Yes, white people can do it..but only low-class white people do it. At this point in her career, Serena should have behaved better. She's worth 180 million dollars and she wants to claim racism and sexism. Get the heck out of here. Quite frankly, when has she EVER done anything in support of the black race. She even has a white husband.

  • dontgetblocked

    "Some" white people call it racist. The same liberal white people who are closed door racists themselves.

  • dontgetblocked

    I thought it was a nice touch.

  • Elevated Soul

    You are so right!!!...Democrats see racism in EVERYTHING except their own racism.

    Black Democrats see racism in everything because White Liberals have brainwashed them to do so.

    Bottom line is that Serena acted like some sort of savage on that court the other day. I just saw the caricature as depicting someone who was way over the top. She is a big scary woman with as many muscles as many men have. She acted like a d@mn fool on that court....Serena has threatened others on the court as well.Serena real Compton self came out on that court as oppose to what she pretends to be.

    As it pertain to Cardi and Nicki.Both are ratchet and one is jealous of the "new girl on the block". Both are from the West Indies, so that's a different sort of thing. I don't look at Serena as if she reps all Black women either.......Serena has anger management issues.

  • dru and neil

    Understood, and I had not heard this interview so more power to them if they want to recognize their Haitian side now that they are in Florida, where there’s a large Haitian population. But I still believe that it’s up to the parents to instill that pride in a child no matter what race or ethnicity. We are proud Black American in our house. We don’t borrow from other cultures just because it’s trendy, (like when Black Panther came out and black Americans were running around in Kente cloth, which is uniquely Ghanaian) and we don’t claim to be anything that we are not. We are black American descendants from slaves, with our own identity and we are not ashamed of it by trying to adopt the cultural identity of other black people from different countries. I think everyone should be proud of exactly who they are, and I do hope that the Osaka girls go far. Sorry for my rant.

  • dontgetblocked

    Serena has built her body into a masculine beastly physique. What kind of man strength does she have to break a tennis racket? SHE'S SCARY AND LOOKED LIKE SHE CAME STRAIGHT FROM COMPTON. That lil Blasian girl was horrified. Serena's behavior was meant to frighten Naomi but she kept playing and BEAT Serena.The GOAT got beat and now wants to claim racism and sexism. That's hard to believe when the manly woman is worth 180 million dollars. She doesn't need my sympathy. She had her time in the limelight and now it's Naomi's.

  • dontgetblocked

    Real talk. We should also steer the conversation towards congratulating Naomi. It's also a reminder that we have to conduct ourselves in a dignified manner at all times. Anything can be used against us...especially destroying a tennis racket with manly strength. That looks just a tad bit violent.

  • Sid

    It’s not racist, it’s racist as hell!

  • Elevated Soul

    Exactly and this is why the caricature was not a stretch for me because of her beastly physique.She is a big scary looking woman. Did you see when she threw that racket down and that thing just bent due to the force,she put behind it....The Compton definitely showed itself.

    Poor Naomi didn't know what to think.I don't think she acted like that when Naomi beat her in Miami last May,I do believe.....Serena is in her decline. Racism and sexism had nothing to do with the loss,she is just a sore loser......She gets no sympathy from me either.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    They are trying to "sarah baartman" her.... If you dont know what this means, you need to google it now.

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 ?4FlavorsOfMe ?????CreoleMami?

    So true it def starts in the home teaching children pride of culture and even things such as hair... I have to talk to my kids about being proud of their big hair and do not let anyone shame them because one has dreads and the baby has big bouncy hair... it is sad how even family members will mock kids on their hair not being short and clean cut or on getting a perm.. half of the women in my family went natural and we got talked about soo bad from the elders smh

  • Marlika

    I’m getting sick & tired of these crackers. Whom ever drew this I hope the artist and thief whole family die a horrible death. ?

  • Cannelle

    Of course it is racist as hell, and the cartoonist is (YT) Australian, so no surprise there. The Aussies, Americans and anglo South Africans all come from the same stock, so what should we expect?

  • Cannelle

    That is awful. Why are people directing their hate at HER? It isn't her fault what happened. People are always going above and beyond to bring ignorance to new heights. They never fail.

  • Cannelle

    I'd like to add that the racist Australian who drew this tripe is on some type of strong hallucinogen to draw this young lady as a white/blond. They stay trying it.

  • RAE23

    Why can't you marry outside of your race and still be pro-black. Perhaps the white men have treated them better. Just because they date outside of our race (not that I have...lol) doesn't mean that they don't embrace the Black culture. To each his own...ijs.

  • Eileen

    thats what says it all that he totally dismissed osaki wo is black and the dumb referee who is spanish!!! the artist lied about serena and the and osaki helied when he drew the racist cartoon...

  • Eileen

    yep...financial clout the jews and that money!!!

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 ?4FlavorsOfMe ?????CreoleMami?

    The lady who pointed out "Japanese" that is what gets me but hey if the lady didnt know then it is understandable ya know... but I have had personal situations as well as family where people only choose to see one thing... or if they understand that that a person is mixed etc how they demand you choose one... or if you say im black they be like black and what? It is just so annoying

  • Eileen

    have you lost your mind..

  • Applebootay

    Art is objective..............this isn't Art....Art is subjective

    subjective (knowledge residing in the emotions and thoughts of the viewer) almost completely dominates our way
    of looking at art. In the arts, it’s especially important to begin to
    develop an informed or objective opinion
    rather than just an instinctual reaction. An objective view is one that
    focuses on the object’s physical characteristics as the main source of
    information. This does not mean that you will remove or invalidate your
    subjective feelings about a work, in fact you will find that the more
    informed you become, the moreartwork will affect you
    emotionally and intellectually. It does mean that you will learn
    alternative ways to approach art, ways that allow you to find clues to
    meaning and to understand how art reflects and affects our lives.

    It’s complex, but the satisfaction of looking at art comes from
    exploring the work to find meaning, not shying away from it simply
    because we may not understand it.

  • Applebootay

    Damn! LOL

  • Applebootay

    Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuup!

  • Applebootay

    NEVER THAT! IDGAF if it was 50 years ago..it would carry the same undertones of racism to me...but then again, I know my history so I actually know what to be offended about...most people don't know shat so everything is acceptable...be careful not to conform to this world....

  • Applebootay

    Well that to me, is her Haitian father’s fault---HOW TF can it be the father's fault? Yall be reaching like a MF.

  • Eileen

    have you noticed lately quite a few billionares are snagging some sistas to wed...dont fake the funk white america you love to hate envy and admire nd love black women. I love Serena the greatest athelete of all time

  • Applebootay

    So you gone feed into the "Angry Black woman type" Serena is the epitome of elegance and class. She's a ferocious competitor and is acting HUMAN in a competitive sport. Nothing to see here...She GAVE US A GOOD NAME by standing up for herself and all WOMANKIND...

  • Eileen

    how many brothas did the williams sistas date only tobe mistreated by them. Let them be happy with who loves them!

  • MsChocCookie

    Forget the picture lets focus on the fact that Serena doesn't know how to take an L....bottom line, is you can't stay on top, forever!!! From where I was viewing she did throw a hissy fit!

  • Eileen

    I agree

  • dblogged

    Exactly lol

  • dru and neil

    How is it not. He is the steward of that part of their lives. Was her Japanese mother supposed to instill Haitian pride in her? Teach her Haitian culture? Did you even read my entire comment because I explained myself.

  • dru and neil

    I had a few people who hated it when I went natural too, like literally thought I was nuts. It’s sad. But my hair is healthy long and thick and it would have never gotten this far back when I had a relaxer.

  • Yui

    Right. All she did was play and won. It happens, your favorite ain’t always gonna win.

  • hottlanta

    U read my response wrong. Had had Harriet tubman fanny lou hanner and my mom never got angry l wouldnt b where l am 2day. Eartha kitt is the angry black woman l admire. She was all up in tbat White House sipping tea with the first lady and stuff. They talking flowers she got tired of the bs and said what about black folks. They tried 2 ruin her career but eartha stood strong. They still dont acknowledge her as the original cat woman in the Batman franchise. We dont care bcas we know the 411 and they cant take that away.

  • hottlanta

    Omg have u read the book. I remember the day my African sisters brought her home 2 rest and everyone standing at the airport wearing red gloves. Simply beautiful.

  • Mark mcharm

    Name one person that Serena dated that mistreated her .? Everyone keeps saying it like we know them . I only go by what I see and she like many black athletes tend to date outside the race the more money they make to feel socially accepted by white people. Then complain about racism when things don't go there way. I actually thought it was tacky what she did.

  • ATL White Guy

    If it was a white girl that was drawn this size people would say they were body shaming her. To me this was a concious racist depiction that he felt he had the privelage to do. Serena is a example of a woman - strong, proud, athletc and beautiful that any young girl should look up to regardless of their race. U go my beautiful Queen Serena!

  • hottlanta

    This is a massage for her white husband as 2 say why would u want someone who is black and unattractive when u have a lot beautiful white women 2 choose from.

  • Mark mcharm

    That makes no sense you busting it open for a white man then talking about my people are being oppressed by white people ?. You are adding to the lineage of oppression sleeping with the same people. Just never talk about racism like Derreck jeter and tiger woods and no one would say anything.

  • Applebootay

    No explanation needed. I've seen footage of her correcting a media person for only acknowledging her Japanese side. Maybe if you LED with that, there would be no confusion. Obviously her father is doing a good job. I still thing your statement is narrow minded and insane...like its her Dad's fault for what bigots say...it just sound so freaking incredulous....

  • Eileen

    this girl is black as i don't know what!!! she is a black girl she took after her father...people really? she is a black girl with a japanese mom..i'm still trying to figure that one out...haitia is so fa removed from japan

  • Eileen

    and her husband loves all his sarah bartman...

  • Quitedeliteful

    I didn't see the match but when I heard that they boo'd Naomi I really felt bad for her. She's only 20, was very excited to compete against her hero and she won! I can't imagine what it must feel like to have an entire stadium filled with thousands of people collectively express their disapproval towards you. I'm sure it's something she will never forget and will be talked about forever...

  • Quitedeliteful

    Snicker.....

  • SweetTEE

    You know honestly, the more research I do about our history (especially in the south), the more I find that this is not at all new or more common now. You must look into the placage and the quadroon balls. There were whole neighborhoods of kept black women "married" to white men. Its quite interesting.

  • dontgetblocked

    The same to you. Her bank account proves she's been successful and one loss can not take away her achievements. She should always act dignified.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    I just saw the video from 2009, where Serena threatened a judge. Go figure!!!

  • Patricia

    i dont see anything wrong with the cartoon. ive had several caricatures drawn of my family and myself throughout the years and they always exaggerate features such as flyaway hairs, gapped teeth, freckles, larger ears, forehead etc. they are not really flattering depictions when its done, but, we just laugh at it.
    now, she cut the fool at that event. it was what it was. i was surprised to find out she actually destroyed the racket. i thought that was just added emphasis in the drawing. she should have known there would be memes for centuries after that bad day.

  • dru and neil

    You’re welcome to your opinion of me, but please don’t tell me how to structure my comments just because you don’t agree or didn’t get it.

  • dontgetblocked

    Serena did tell them to stop booing. She felt bad when Naomi started crying. I think she realized how her behavior impacted the crowd since she was the favorite. Everyone is saying that Naomi won because Serena was penalized. She won because Serena was losing and she made things worse with her temper tantrums.

  • Applebootay

    My opinion is of your comment not you.....and that's just how shat get started people taking things personal for no reason. I made sure to say your statement...NOT YOU...I digress your COMMENT was a Contradictions after you were corrected and instead of acknowledging that you went to justify an false statement...BYE

  • dru and neil

    That’s not true at all, and after the other commenter told me that the Osaka girls do recognize their Haitian side and correct press, I told her I understood and did not know, but did you want me to kiss her ass, or delete my previous comment? We then went in to talk about something else, then you came along being disruptive so I’m asking you to please regain your composure and maturity. None of the name calling and agression was necessary from the start. We could have just discussed this like adults.

  • mona q

    True! I assume it’s easier said than done when adrenaline is pumping. Hey, she still walked away with 1.58 mil as a runner up so????? I get that she’s competitive though and wants that win!

  • TransMichelle

    Just ban black folks from everything then maybe everyone can carry on without black folks always being butt hurt. Talking about an inferiority complex. Caricatures are always exaggerated and I find the artist who draw them talented. Black folks are just destroying everything NFL, Fashion Week, Tennis, neighborhoods, schools, countries.Soon, we won't be invited to anything and remain broke and last.

  • TransMichelle

    Stop making excuses for bad behavior. Serena and her sister Venus are known for attitude on and off the court. They've slept with countless white men. Actually Serena was sleeping with her married coach. He left his wife and him and Serena were on and off for a while. He's the one still coaching her. Her and her sister lay down for master and love it. They are not the epitome of elegance and class.

  • TheOwley

    No debate. It was an awful cartoon and there's no rationalization or justification for it. Notice how he played it safe by depicting the initial victor as white (I'm not making fun of mixed race Japanese Haitian people). Had she depicted some equally offensive drawing of the winner, the Japanese next door would have been all over him.

    Conversely, Serena's behavior was unacceptable. And yes, McEnroe acted like this all the time. I have never seen a cartoon of her period, let alone something so offensive. She needs to go out like the great champion she is and show the world including this so called artist to f-off.

    Also, Australian courts are interesting. Rebel Wilson won her lawsuit about how she was represented. Maybe Serena should follow suit.

  • Faithz

    I don't wish death on Him But He is getting himself praised and he and other know that the Picture is seen as Making Fun of Serena , as a black woman. This Hateful Picture is from the Old S!AVERY BOOK, THIS B%%%RD KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HES DOING.
    HE WILL GET WHAT'S COMING TO HIM FOR SURE.

  • Faithz

    Exactly right, he like so many are bitter, pressed because in the past Serena has beat their Tennis Players fair and square on the Tennis Courts around the Globe, and they are as pressed as ever over it.

  • Faithz

    I see where the Umpire is considering pressing charges against Serena I sure do want to see how that would work out when his as is the one who Muddied the water for her, and did it in a way as to appear perfect, and without Fault.

  • Faithz

    So true,,,

  • Faithz

    Serena Behavior was on Point Especially when she did not see her coach COACHING FROM THE SIDE LINES Her coach Gesture toward her was wrong but she did not see him, and she have a right to say so.
    But how could I think you would Understand when I know you are not working with a Full deck, and your brains are some place between the basement and the first floor, Just saying.

  • Faithz

    Nothing.

  • Faithz

    So many Hate on Serena Success so hard that they are loving this drawing , and Serena losing the match, and her temper to high heavens.

  • Faithz

    I have thought all along that there are Countless people like you, who wants Serena out of the Game BECAUSE THEY FEEL SHE HAS MADE TO MUCH $$$ and Dominated the game for to long right now,,, umpires are reportedly discussing the possibility of Boycotting her matches. Top umpires are also considering the formation of a Union, according to a report Tuesday, in part because they are not allowed to discuss specific matches.
    This just goes to show that there are many like you who HATES the though of a black woman gaming the system by working their as off on court, that is why thy are trying to catch her Doping, and testing her more than any of the other women on the League.
    With Serena out of the Game I hope you live happy ever after sine you hate her so much.
    Less see how the people in Sports feel about this...

  • Faithz
  • Faithz

    Serena has to stand up for herself, because Otherwise People will run over her. Many hates her Domination on the Tennis courts. She has has had her look, style, attitude Nit picked her entire Career since day one.

  • Faithz

    Take that Racket out of the bag, and break that suckker, If you can't break that racket throwing it to the ground , than pick it up and put your foot on it and break that su c ker.

    You can Huff, and You can Puff but you can't blow Serena Tennis House down. It doesn't matter if Serena never step on a tennis court again in her life, she have still got it made in the shade. You will be online talking a hundred mile of mess, and trying to kill Serena Vibe , and Tennis Career which is already in a bag with that

  • Faithz

    Thanks Ebony.

  • Faithz

    You are so right Jesse, and many has had it with the umpires on court as well. They are just always going as hard as ever after Serena.

  • Faithz

    Check out the Videos of some breaking more than one Racket in a single game. Your argument is Null , and Void, for trying to make it seem like Serena is the only Racket breaker in the game of tennis.

  • Faithz

    Yes they did, but their Fixation is with Serena, because they dislike Serena.

  • Faithz

    Nobody is making excuses Serena should have perhaps handled it differently but she didn't so what??? In Tennis their has been many Tennis Racket Breaks, many fights, and many Outburst, and there will be many more going forward, And of course the fights with the Umpires, but you would have to have a working brain to know, and understand that.

  • Faithz

    Who they have sleep with don't even fit into the Equation. That thing is there's and they can WTF they want to do with it, Are yo as for real. You need to take that dang rag off your head so yo brains can Breath.

  • Faithz

    And to those who are worried about Osaka shine, She got her shine in spite of what went on, and she's still shining while many have tried their level best to make Serena Retire and Shut up, But I hate to Tell You Serena will only leave Tennis when she get to old to run and focus on that Tennis Ball, and it's not up to Twitter, FB , B!00gs, are IG.
    are those who are pressed because she wasn't born blonde with blue eyes ,,,Serena will leave on Her own Accord, Hide and watch.

  • Faithz

    I did not care for Tennis, but now I have Favorite players women/men and love the game, and Know very well that Serena is well known from coming from behind , and pulling a Winner out. But one of my Older Sisters has loved them since day one. In Fact my sister and some of her friends used to call Serena and Venus the "Beverly H!!!billies" Now they appreciate their Power on the Tennis Courts. My sister would Love to go to Court and Testify on Serena Behalf. My sister who is Older even remembers when there was complaints about the Williams hitting the ball to hard, and now the other girls are doing more and hitting the ball even harder ~

  • Faithz

    And,,,You do not live by Common Sense.

  • Faithz

    Dang I keep coming back to Yo as.
    Williams has won the Australian Open singles title seven times at Melbourne Park, including in 2017 when she was pregnant. She is a crowd favorite at the first tennis major of the year, which is held each January at a venue that is within sight of the Herald Sun's headquarters.
    We know why the Cartoonist isn't backing Back now don't WE.

  • Faithz

    Question is if you dislike the way Serena goes of, and break the f&%^ out of her Rackets because she feels she has been picked on than why do you give Serena so much
    of your time, and Love with trash talk Don't you know Serena Welcome the likes you you with open arms.

  • Faithz

    You are no doubt the Cartoonist, Himself Parading around like yo as is of color.

  • Jesse

    Exactly. They harp on her because she's a black woman who has dominated the sport, and by doing so, becoming the greatest to ever do it.

  • Applebootay

    She's a ferocious competitor ... She's human...She broke a bracket ...SO Fking what?...Jesus turned over and smashed tables at the synagogue too......its call righteous anger....So instead of telling me to stop excusing bad behavior...I'm telling you stop be judgmental and narrow minded. and bringing up their bed partners is BEYOND PETTY...IDGAF nor anyone else about who they slept with. That don't have shat to do with this ENTIRE DISCUSSION...but I know you need to FAR REACH IN LEFT FKING FIELD so you can support your narrative.....They are the epitome of elegance and class when it comes to the SPORT OF TENNIS...not their fukking skills. GTWHOLEFOH

  • Faithz

    Thanks for that, You are so right.

  • Jamal Warner

    What does this have to do with systemic racism, which all white people benefit from?

  • Jamal Warner

    ??

  • Jamal Warner

    My point was there is many examples of white players male and female doing much worse and not being punished. There is a clear racial double standard that exist when comes to punishing people for their actions. Further, I would argue it is racial the way Serena is drug tested more than other players, criticized for her attire, criticized for her playing style, etc., which the list goes on. There is a big difference he how she is treated and other players in her league. I have never advocated for the mistreatment of anyone and stand against it. I am for justice, which I mean I am for all people being treated fairly. I am for ending the system of racism white supremacy which mean people are mistreated based on race.

  • What???

    There’re also examples of many white players who HAVE been punished too. You’re cherry pickin. Why’re you looking at this one sided, that’s not a sign of an intelligent man. Serena brings A LOT of money into the sport so they have very little incentive to catch her on steroids especially with a black female USTA president who is on her side. Serena was losing AGAIN to Osaka and she needed an excuse. She couldn’t say Osaka was white so it’s racism, she claimed sexism because her ego is so big she couldn’t handle the new girl who beat her HUMBLY. Serena’s body is very masculine and muscular so she has to expect suspicion especially when she was hiding from a steroid test offficial a few years ago. Racism?? Really?? You gotta choose right or wrong and stop comparing black wrongs to white people because YOU don’t have the moral high ground. That’s what a man does not “white people do it too”. That’s female thought patterns truth has to be your friend whether it feels good or not. You sound more jealous of white people than are truly concerned about whether black people have their ethical house in order...being a victim does not automatically give you higher moral ground. That’s that pimpin civil rights church pastor pathology they taught the past generations and you have that disease too. Check yourself not me, Serena slammed that racquet like an animal and cursed the ref out like ghetto trash, she should be ashamed of that just like you should be of her and call a spade a spade.

  • Faithz

    The blacks hating on Serena and White Racist toward Black are two entirely different things ?

  • Jamal Warner

    How so?

  • Jamal Warner

    A black female president who is a token to hide racism. Yet, Serena is still tested more than any other player. This is not the first time and will not be the last time a black person is used as a shill for racism. Go figure! No Serena claimed it was sexism because if she made it about race she would not have gotten much support even from so called liberals. Further, Serena is very beautiful and there is nothing wrong with her body that would justify her being targeted as you justified.

    Are you saying that systemic racism does not exist and millions of people are making it up? Explain. Further, you do not get to define what it is a man does or what it mean to be a man. The issue is not "black wrongs", as you stated, but black victims of racism white supremacy. Also, it's not about a "black ethical house", which is a old white supremacist talking point used as a means to mistreat people. Melaninated people have been sold this big lie that the reason we are mistreated because we do not know how to act, which is so far from the truth. Even when we do everything right we are still punished.

    Your post sounds like you are trying to avoid speaking about racism white supremacy. What Serena did was no different than other white players have done in the past and will do in the future. The only difference is they will not be punished as severe.

  • What???

    Serena is tested more because she has a lot more power than the average female in the sport with a deep voice and muscular body. Personally, I couldn't consider a woman beautiful who slams her racquet in front of the world and threatens to shove a ball down the umpire's throat. I have higher standards that that. If that's beauty to you, that's your prerogative. Systematic racism does not exist. The civil rights movement reversed systematic racism. Which laws are on the books are racist and "white supremacist"? Now are there subjective instances of racism? Absolutely, even if its by law enforcement. As a matter of fact more white folks are killed by cops than black folks but yes millions of people are making up racism because most of them have low critical analysis, low intelligence yet have high cognitive dissonance. You can't tell black people anything once they've made up their mind. That's not the sign of an intelligent group. I'm talking about people who live and have been taught to believe feelings are facts. Overall, it sounds like you want white people to fix black problems because blacks can't fix them themselves. Now they need cultural welfare too to do the right thing for themselves? Ask white supremacy to give you that too. Sounds like a people who have voluntarily lost their dignity due to non-resourcefulness unless the new Jordans are about to come out.

    Whites are not doing anything different that they haven't been doing for the past 30 years. The problem is blacks are falling and becoming more and more immoral, unethical and murderous relative to whites so it FEELS like they're more supreme when blacks are really just FALLING. The problem isn't WHITE SUPREMACY, ITS BLACK MEDIOCRITY, ITS BLACK INFERIORITY of MORALS. THE BOOGIE MAN LOOKS BIGGER WHEN YOU ACT LIKE A JACKASS IN FRONT OF THE WORLD AND THEY LOSE MORE AND MORE RESPECT FOR YOU. NO ONE PUT A GUN TO SERENA'S HEAD TO THREATEN AN UMPIRE. Do you honestly think black people at large are more moral, ethical and can handle the responsibility and temptations of power better than anyone else?

  • Faithz

    I agree with you that White supremacist is wrong/bad on all accounts. But Blacks who hate on Serena is yet another account, and another Thing to me, because Serena as a Tennis Champ is Representing for all people from all Demographics, all Nationalities, and from all walks of life,,,, Less just say that Just like Osaka is representing for Japan-Haiti Serena is representing for AMERICA, and that means all people. serena should be getting hands up for her Talents on the tennis court, and I don't mean that people of color has to agree with her Mannerism, and attitude on the tennis court, because after all Serena is the one who has fought Racism, Sexism, and how she look dress and wear her n@ppy hair her entire Tennis Career, and blacks should support her but they don't , and that's okay with me. She's a Champ, and will always be a champ...

  • Faithz

    Like I have said Serena was wrong for the Outburst, But the Umpire was wrong for snapping on her with such a force, Especially when she stated that it was not happening from her point of view. The umpire accusing her of cheating when she did not see her coach approach is like telling her I am sentencing you to cheating, and there's nothing can do about it, I say bs., Simply because Serena has come from behind to many times and pulled out a win , and Sweetie the World knows this.
    PS
    Ask yourself why would Serena be so mad, and the game wasn't over yet until the Umpire caused the entire episode. I am not saying he wasn't doing his Job, I am saying he accused her, and she wasn't able to see her coach hand Gestures, and everybody, and their pet m0nkey want to hang Serena out to dry because they feel she should not be talking back to a white supremacist. There is a tape of where he tried the Exact same thing on Venus, and it did not work. Trevor Noah speaking on Serena and sexism said it best look at the tape.

  • Faithz

    Serena acted on her Impulses at the game, and she has a right to do that, if she went to far many feel that she did I say She acted like she was feeling, and I say she can and will be Judged by many people and Differently, while many on the b!ogs are trashing her entire Existent many of her Haters want her to just go away, While I say play as long as you can focus on the Tennis Ball Serena the G O A T Williams...
    I so agrees with TREVOR NOAH ~~
    OH and the Cartoonist need to draw a picture of Australia Number one clowning her as off on the tennis court just like he did the cartoon of Williams...

  • Faithz

    TREVOR Noah says it best,,,,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUijN7g_Mg4

  • Faithz

    Forgive my Rant, but just wanted to state the Case from where I am Looking in,,,

  • Faithz

    Serena isn't the Only One, This shows Carlos Ramos Trying the Exact same thing on VENUS WILLIAMS,,www.theguardian.com/sport/2018/sep/09/carlos-ramos-serena-williams-tennis-umpire-us-open,

  • Jamal Warner

    The issue I have is that no one mentions the elephant in the room, which is racism. If you notice from the clip, Noah was coding his language. He almost said "equal" at 3:38 mark, and paused briefly and said "we are not treated the same". Equal would have fit best because it would have alluded to racism.

  • Jamal Warner

    Serena acted passionately about a sport she has played more than half her entire life. It is no different than the other players. Only different is the response from the judges. The cartoonist is trying to deflect attention away by showing white people he has drawn. It is a poor tactic used by suspect racist white supremacist.

  • Jamal Warner

    If we are going to be objective in this discussion we have to follow sound reason and logic. We have to focus on facts and not ignorant opinions. It does not make much sense to suggest because of someone appearance it requires more testing considering she is not the only player that is muscular or talk in a high pitch voice. Yet, these same players are not tested even half as much as Serena. And I do think Serena is a beautiful young lady.

    Further, it does not follow sound reasoning or logic to suggest systemic racism does not exist when millions of people experience it. It is one subject that has been documented for decades. I guess based on your "opinion" people have been documenting something that does not exist. Your post sounds as if you are trying to moralize on melaninated people. I don't think you are in any position to moralize on anyone or any group. Your post only wishes to ignore white supremacy and blame the victims for being victims. The issue is not morals but in fact a system that benefits all white people at the detriment of people classified non-white.

    It makes perfect sense that more white people are killed by police considering they out number melaninated people nearly 6 to 1. You would have to examine the rates at which people are killed to get a clear and even picture of the issue. Unarmed melaninated people are killed more often by police at a disproportionate rate than their white counterparts. Further, the latest FBI states shows that white people are arrested for violent crimes at a higher rate than melaninated people. I would like to know what you are basing your post on. Is it facts or your opinion?

  • What???

    On a final note and response, I don't care if you think King Kong is beautiful, for as much as you say she's beautiful to you, Serena's willing to threaten to shove balls down a white umpire's throat, slam rackets on the court and be disloyal to her own father, how do you think she would treat you as her man? She wouldn't submit, she wouldn't be feminine but she'd definitely terrorize you and your children with her belligerent behavior.

    Most importantly, the foundation of any discussion, debate or rhetoric is MORALITY. Apparently because of this "white people do it too" disease that you're afflicted with you're unknowingly immoral. Morality isn't just "thou shalt not kill or steal", its a self-realized and self-actualized consciousness of the realities of our behaviors and how it affects those around us IRRESPECTIVE OF THE CONDITIONS. If white supremacy exists its due to black immorality. Getting shorter makes another object feel bigger when it hasn't grown an inch.

    For every 100 black people that are killed by blacks, less than one-tenth of one percent are killed by police (Its actually much less). Deep down Jamal you hate and disvalue black people or you'd prioritize the value of black lives but you're more focused on white people and the police. I sense your envy of white folks and their successes. There is no white supremacy only modern day black inferiority of black behavior and black morality. YOU INHERENTLY HAVE LOW RACIAL SELF-ESTEEM AND LOW STANDARDS FOR BLACK PEOPLE THAT YOU'RE PROJECTING THROUGH "SOCIAL JUSTICE" based on how you argue. You have a comparative philosophy of morality. They stole $6, I only stole $5 therefore I'm a victim because I didn't get the extra dollar approach. The system my azz you need to move away from that bullshyt azz hotep group you've been listening to you're following them straight to hell.

    One day you'll clean up your act Jamal and see black people on their own merits and failures. Time to move away from the 60's civil rights approach which was monumental on the legal front and quit being a part of the gay/feminist child of single mothers clan. Those 3 types are often packaged in surrogate fake-alpha male leaders.

  • Jamal Warner

    How ignorant and childish to refer to someone as an animal. It does nothing to take away from her beauty. You say she will not submit, but she does just that with her husband.

    Morality certainly mean being objective and truthful. I know you agree. I am fully aware of white supremacy and the negative affect it has had on the victims. White supremacy exist because people who classify themselves as white created it to benefit themselves. The issue is not melaninated people morality because irregardless of how one would gauge our morality, it does nothing to change white supremacy.

    Your post makes a poor attempt at minimizing unarmed melaninated people killed by police. How many unarmed melaninated people would it take to be important to you? For me, one life lost is enough. Further, white people kill other white people at similar rates. Yet, your post neglect to even mention white immortality. It would appear that you seem to have a racial double standard which you tend to see the wrongs of one group and blind to another.

    Since your consensus "black immorality", then what should be done with a group with these many issues? What should be done with such immoral people? Explain.

  • Faithz

    You are right about that Jamal. It reminds me of the Me to Movement for women and the Baller
    Kneeling on their knees. You see how nothing has been made really of the Charlottesville Saga, and a woman got Killed there, and we still saw a President say that it's bad on both side, that is so so unfair.

  • Faithz

    Jamal it's so Refreshing to read Commenters like you, who stands for what is right. You are so on point. Its on Tape where Carlos tried the exact same thing with Venus, and to me he said in his mind I am going to get one of them black b^^&& because how dare them talk back to me. To me the WTA/ATP Can hire another umpire, But it's hard to come by a Champion Tennis Player like Serena. I say yes she should have been more controlled but she wasn't so what?? And while I ma told to hush on here, are shut up, I read many who are trashing Serena for Decades of hard work, and Sportsmanship, because she lost. I along with many know , and the Carlos know very well that Serena is known for coming from behind , and pulling a rabbit out of the hat.

  • Faithz

    All over the Net they are trashing Serena, that is because the more money you make, and the higher you get up the ladder there will always be haters lurking to pounce on you. And many are still trashing her look, attitude, what she wear, and trying to paint her as a sore loser, when she has lost many times to Younger, players. I say this they can trash Serena all they want, Osaka beat Serena Bu if Carlos had given Serena a soft warning and not tried to make her eyes be where he wished they was, we might would have seen Serena make a few more points, out there, But now we will never know. Only the strong survives and the losers fall by the way side. Osaka Coach used to be Serena Coach, and he's got a chip on his shoulder because SerenA DIDN'T MAKE HIM HER MAIN COACH!!!

  • What???

    You’re addicted to what white people do. Maybe your life didn’t go how you wanted it to? Do some research on tu quoque. Your argument is missing essential values for it to be substantive. Best regards and I hope the white man fixes your problems.

    Okay well dats us, We don't need help from white people.We can deal with our on problems. That pic was disgusting. They stay hating but still blow up there lips n a$$ and tan to try to look like us

    No, I have no addiction to anyone. What white supremacist do affect all victims of white supremacy, which are all non-white people. You are not dumb, you get it. Denying it does little to hid it.
