I know Mashona Washington is African American, but I have no idea how old she is...all I know is she isn't well known and MaliVai's sister.

Also, Lori McNeil, Amanda Coetzer's coach and doubles partner, is black.

I think think that with the immense popularity of Venus and Serena in pop culture, young black girls will emulate them and want to be like them and play like them, too.

Mashona Washington is 25, and has a career high ranking of 112.

My understanding is that young (about 16 yo) players Shadisha Robinson and Jamea Jackson are black. I suspect Jackson is the one more likely to do well.

How many coloured girls?

How many black or AfroAmericans are on the tour, would have worked just fine.

Hi Dawn and Infiniti

I think you guys are being a bit to hard on Kisha.
I think she's from England, and she may not be clued in that the "colored girl" thing not so cool in the USA.

I agree with Moon that different terms are acceptable in different places. "Afroamerican" is a great term in itself but doesn't exactly describe a dark skinned person who does not reside in America!

Anyway, she is not a current player but the new Australian Fed Cup captain is Evonne Cawley (nee Goolagong), who is Aboriginal.

It all depends on how you define "colored". I remember hearing somebody using the term "persons of color" and suggesting that the only persons not of color are albinos, and possibly Michael Jackson.

Having said that, in addition to the names given, there's Dally and Natacha Randriantefy from Madagascar, and Anne Keothavong from the UK (her parents are from Laos).

Stevenson, of course, is of "mixed-race" or "interracial" or whatever the US Census Bureau put next to that check box. I refused to fill in any of the boxes for race since that's not the point of the Census according to the Constitution.

And what about all the Asian players? Do they count as "colored"?

Cara Black is not black, only in her name.

Dally Radrianteffy and Natacha Dally's sister are black

Hey, Kisha is black too you know! But she lives in England and maybe doesn't know these terms too well.

Dawn and Infiniti, I think you are being too harsh on her

Now let's shake hands and be friends again

Can someone explain to me what's offensive about the term "coloured"? I remember using it once on the Sanex board & people took offense. And I was using to describe myself...

I'm from England too.

saik - I think she changed the name of the thread from whatever it is that they were biting her head off about originally.

its unfortunate that a great, respectful poster like Kisha, can't even ask a simple question without getting her head bit off. Anyone who would call her a hater, clearly has never read a single post of Kisha's before. The way some people throw around the word "hater" is just unbeleivable.

I'd help you out Kisha, but I have no idea.

Though like already said, I imagine that Venus and Serena will/have inspired tons of children of all races to get out their racquets, so hopefully in a few years time the tour will be more racially diverse
