The most decorated woman in sports history has time and time over proved her ‘blackness’ (even though she never had to), including showing her appreciation for black culture and the importance of its preservation.
Serena Williams has stood defiant as a black woman, even when black men disrespected her with sexist, misogynistic, transphobic remarks over her looks or for simply being a passionate, bossed up black woman.
Whoever decided to write this garbage does not know Serena Williams. I want to find out who is behind this, and have them prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
I am hoping that there will be more policing of the Internet, in order to find out immediately the origin of this kind of treachery.
But in reality, it reflects the continued widespread opposition to and discomfort with interracial couples and multiracial children.
On one hand, mixed race celebrities and interracial celebrity couples like Williams and Ohanian are heralded in the media as examples of a world where race, ethnic background, and color no longer matter.
Accompanying these proclamations of multiracialism was the notion that opposition to interracial unions was a thing of the past.
Apparently, the fragility of black masculinity happened to forget the name of the most decorated woman in sports history, as her engagement, for whatever reason, seemed to be a direct attack against their manhood.
If you haven’t guessed it already, Alexis Ohanian isn’t black, and black men made their grievance clear: their ‘Black Queen’ had betrayed them.
From there, some of these women find love with white/non-black men and get slandered for it.
Black men who slander black women for all sorts of things and then getting mad at the same women who find love with white men are unnecessary. Whichever and whatever way they love, you should congratulate them and respect their relationship.
