Right on, Serena Williams!

No matter what happens at the U.S. Open, Serena Williams will go down in history as one of the most intelligent and mentally tough athletes to play in any sport. Serena and Venus Williams had to overcome some of the most sickening white racism in the elitist world of tennis to become the greatest sibling champions the sports world has ever known.

It angers me to hear the racism of tennis sportscasters speaking of the Williams’ sisters power, speed, long arms, muscular physique and not their intelligence, mental toughness or the cerebral way they approached the game of tennis.

If you spent the rest of your life giving credit and acknowledgement for the success of the Williams sisters, you couldn’t give enough to their genius father, Richard Williams, who created, developed, coached, protected and guided them to championship greatness, and to their mother, Oracene Price, who, with love, care and discipline, shaped and molded their beautiful intelligent personalities.

Right on to the Willams sisters! We’re proud of you! Forward ever!
