Professional tennis player Caroline Wozniacki is taking a lot of heat right now for her impersonation of fellow tennis star and friend, Serena Williams. This past weekend, playing a match in Sao Paolo against Maria Sharapova, Wozniacki added a bit of padding and played a point “as” Williams. It is not uncommon for professional tennis players to impersonate one another during matches but this particular time it struck a nerve. Some believe Wozniacki’s act was “racist” towards black women and their figures. I for one disagree. They are friends and I think that she meant no harm with her impersonation.
Williams herself has also joked about her curves as well. Why is it ok for black people (men especially) to glorify a fat ass or big breasts on ANY WOMAN but when someone of another race pokes fun at a FRIEND they are automatically racist?? I could see if she painted her body brown or black and then did the impersonation. Now I know that racism is still alive and well in many parts of the country, but I find it hard to call this woman a racist by impersonating a pal. Now was it in good taste? Ehh…no comment. Check out the video. What do you think? Comments?
