It is also a crime to refer to a crowd as racist when they were obviously not. Martina Hingis, Arantxa Sanchez and Martina Navratilova are just 3 names that automatically come to mind to disprove your assertions.All4Williams said:Its not a crime to be white. In fact some of the very best people in the world are white. Some of my favourite poeple are white. Its a crime though to be white and verbally abuse others.
So I guess you have never seen Davis cup?DunkMachine said:It IS racism. 100% definate racism. Were talking about crowds acting hatefully against a player not just cheering in support of the other.
They acted like Serena was somekind of criminal when she never did anything that deserved this treatment. They never would verbally attack Davenport like this when she was no. 1.
Let me ask you something per4ever would you have done the same things the belgians in that crowd did?
Bravo!!!!!!! Not sure what a dutch jerk like Skankmachine knows about racism anyway.Flatstat said:So I guess you have never seen Davis cup?
I can only imagine you are saying these crowds were RACIST against Hingis, ASV and Navratilova? or like many many people on this board you have no idea what the word RACISM means or the implications of using it in a false manner. It just sounds good to use it in an argument when you have nothing else to back yourself up with
What exactly would you want them to do?All4Williams said:We demand to know. What anti racism procedures have the ATP and WTA got in place. Every other public body has them. In particular what steps do they take when a crowd gets out of hand to the level it did yesterday.
And that my friend is BULLSHIT. You think that saying that is just another excuse. How the hell can you know there is absolutely no possibility of any racist feelings in aan entire hatefull crowd. How the FUCK can you know. What were saying is that it can be an underlying motive. The first dominant black tennis players are being treated disrespectfully for no proper reason allmost exclusively. Hmmz why is that?! Chanda is a puppy and a mediocre player and gets no attention because of that. But Vee and Reena are sensational and a better target.per4ever said:some things yes but I agree that it run out of hand.. booing someone for missing a first serve is terrible.
Believe me this is NOT racism. It's just the perfect excuse for blacks to use when people are not rooting for them.
Answer my question. I'm dying to know what you would do.All4Williams said:andy-c76.
Serena said that when she loses a match, she likes to believe that it was because she played badly. This gives her something to work on. Instead of too bad "the other person played very well" which lives her nothing to work on for the future.
Now the level at which Serena speaks and is willing to go to to improve is beyond many people's comprehension that is why they fail to understand these simple statements.
