So true. I've seen so many racist posts by WS fans but it seems like only Maria fans get attacked for it.

Re: London 2012 - Mission: Olympic Glory & Career Golden Slam!

Look at this post in the Gymnastics thread by LBV who's always fast to call Maria fans vile and racist.Isn't this a racist post from him?

They're probably just a young kid - I remember acting really childish like that when Maria got beat down in the AO '07 final but I've grown up a bit since then and I'm more calm after her losses now

Really?? Huh, then what can I say? We still live in a very shallow world (despite globalization)... If she is really hyped like that, and if really the W sisters are downgraded like that based on race, then what should one say??? It is cruel. And imagine how even more cruel would be if Maria would have done what posters want her to do in that Bodo article thread...
If people see racial differences where they do not exist, then that is also sad...
I have no opinion, since I have never read in depth all that was written/said about the sisters...
And I do condemn any kind of disrespect of race, religion and nation (ethnicity).

Re: London 2012 - Mission: Olympic Glory & Career Golden Slam!

LOL, so much drama and I wasn't even aware of it. I'm not apologizing for my comment because it wasn't written in a bad way. It was just a freaking joke. I'll post my sole and only reply on that thread to defend myself (not that I need too). I've been staying away from this kind of wars between fanbases and I pretend to keep that way.

Iím sorry if I embarrassed some of you, I certainly didnít want to.

The media apparently hyped Maria like that back in 2004 after Maria beat Serena, according to many WS fans' words. I haven't heard anything like that in recent years at all, but apparently they found it threatening to Serena. I'd like to add that what I quoted was just specalution. As in "hyped as something like a white savior of tennis" (the way WS fans interpreted her hype), not "hyped as THE white savior of womens tennis".
