J.K Rowling Condems Racist Serena Williams Depiction

‘Harry Potter’ mastermind JK Rowling has condemned an artist who created a racist depiction of Serena Williams in response to her decision to blast sexism within tennis over the weekend.

Full story below… Williams played against the Haitian-Japanese athlete Naomi Osaka over the weekend and faced drama when the game’s umpire accused her of cheating. Hurt by the accusation, the African-American sportswoman blasted said umpire resulting in the deduction of her points and a hefty fine.

Within hours, a Jim Crowe era style image of Williams was unleashed by the “artist” Mark Knight.                                

We’ve opted not to share the disgusting image as it is terrible. Agreeing with that sentiment? Ms.Rowling.

She wrote:

“Well done on reducing one of the greatest sportswomen alive to racist and sexist tropes and turning a second great sportswoman into a faceless prop.”  

What do you make of the hate Serena is receiving? Is it fuelled by racism?

Your thoughts?

    A beautiful educated woman of color will always bring out the worst in whites. Blacks need to realize they are the originals and every race come from the dark skinned. Black Girls Rock!

    The cartoon is completely unacceptable. If you’re going to exaggerate something for laughs, make sure that what you’re exaggerating is not already a well known and offensive stereotype. The cartoonist crossed a line and feels justified doing so. It’s that white entitlement that is showing itself again and again in this era of Trump.
