If a man had done all the things she did on court we wouldn't be talking about it, but she has made a big deal of being told off for doing something wrong, people are now even using the racism as well as the sexism card
Yes.....love the racism slant. By flashing the racism card they're shooting themselves in the foot because if the umpire WAS racist then why should he care as both players are non-white. Ooh....hang on....the one he 'helped' isn't quite as dark-skinned as Serena so defo an act of racism....lol.
This is where identity politics breaks down because you have to play a tortuous game of twister to justify racism when two non-white races have an issue.....or two minority religions are in conflict....or a gay and a trans are the issue. Where, for instance, do atheists fit in the league table of oppressed people? Where does a white muslim fit? What about a black jew? It's so f'ing crazy.
