Who are the williams sisters dating
During the 2001 Indian Wells Masters tournament in Indian Wells, California, controversy erupted when Venus Williams withdrew four minutes prior to her semifinal match with her sister Serena.
Richard accused the crowds at Indian Wells of overt racism, saying, "The white people at Indian Wells, what they've been wanting to say all along to us finally came out: 'Nigger, stay away from here, we don't want you here'".
Even if she truly feels this way, I wish she would have kept this private and not made this a public statement.Richard has said that racial epithets were used against him and Venus as they sat in the stands during the final, but no official complaints were recorded by the tournament.Venus and Serena have been criticized for refusing to discuss the controversy, as some believe that their silence perpetuates racism. And in Palm Springs, especially, they tended to be pretty well-heeled, too.During the 2010 French Open, they became the co-world No. On 21 June 2010, Serena and Venus again held the No. 2 rankings spots in singles, respectively, some eight years after first accomplishing this feat.At the time, Serena was three months shy of her 29th birthday and Venus had just celebrated her 30th birthday.
But this begs the question, can you be pro-black and have a mate from another race?
