Women React To Serena Williams Sexism Row: 'This Happens To Black Women In The Workplace Every Day'

Post by Guest on Mon Sep 10, 2018 4:02 pm

First topic message reminder :

When Serena Williams was fined £13,100 for effectively losing her temper at the US Open final, the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) and Billie Jean King both expressed outrage and backed claims she’d been on the receiving end of sexism, claiming male players aren’t held to the same standards.

On Twitter however, women said they were sadly unsurprised by what went down arguing that this debate is about so much more than tennis, but how women, especially black women, are treated in day-to-day life.

In a tweet that’s been liked more than 6,000 times, author Charlene Carruthers said: “What happened to Serena happens to black women in the workplace every day.

“Serena was at work. Tennis is her profession. She’s in a profession that doesn’t fully honour or respect her the way she should be. She’s in the ranks of so many black women.”


Except in reality she was cheating and broke the rules 3 times


This had nothing to do with gender or race

She cheated and to use race and gender to defend that shows what is going wrong today with identity politics

You used what Lee Atwater (father of southern strategy) described as racist code:

Lee Atwater wrote:You start out in 1954 by saying, “Nigger, nigger, nigger.” By 1968 you can’t say “nigger”—that hurts you, backfires. So you say stuff like, uh, forced busing, states’ rights, and all that stuff, and you’re getting so abstract. Now, you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is, blacks get hurt worse than whites.… “We want to cut this,” is much more abstract than even the busing thing, uh, and a hell of a lot more abstract than “Nigger, nigger.”

It's southern political code...sometimes called dog whistle talk.

"Big arsed?" Yes, black women are often large hipped.

"Big mouthed?" A white male, saying that, would be called an "assertive gentleman". But negros should know their place.

"Needs to be taught manners..." That's something you would say when your expectation is you are superior. Blacks are inferior, and need to be taught their place!

Yes, it's quite as if you learned how to talk about black people from a southern racist.

“Little thieves are hanged, but great thieves are praised.” — Old Russian proverb, offered by Vladimir Putin to Donald J. Trump, Helsinki, July, 2018.

"I don't stand by anything."  ― Donald Trump, interview with John Dickerson, 5.1.17...

If you can't indict, and you don't impeach, you've got villainy.

“That's libertarians for you — anarchists who want police protection from their slaves.” ― Kim Stanley Robinson, Green Mars
