    from POU:


    ITA! It dawned on me this morning that the reason they’ve stepped up the contempt, racism and disrespect (outside of it just being the American way) is that very soon Serena will have all the records and the hardware to be proclaimed the greatest women’s tennis player EVER! Add in her accomplishments with Venus in doubles and as soft as these chicks are coming up behind her, that position will be secure for decades, probably, until another sister, yet born, challenges it.

    They’re trying to stop her march on history and/or diminish it because throughout her career they threw everything, including the kitchen sink, at the Williams family and Serena still succeeded far beyond their worst nightmares. For all the grief Navratilova received during her career, she should be ashamed of herself for the way she’s behaved toward Serena recently.

    Ironically, Serena, like PBO, are only made greater by the blows they absorb from their enemies, much to their consternation. Ghandi could have been referring to them both with his timeless quote, “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”

    • Ametia says:

      of course it’s the 123 formula

      Facination, envy, destroy.

      Serena can’t be more beautiful, more intelligent, more talented, or richer. This would destroy their delusional premise of whie superiority.

    CC, if I had a body like that, you couldn’t tell me SH&T!!!! Lol

    Ok, I’m going shallow but I just love Serena’s ponytail! Congratulations to you Ms Serena!

    Serena Williams and the Fear of a Dominant Black Woman


    No, because Serena Williams is a wildly successful black woman in a white-dominated sport, she occupies a fraught space both within the sport itself and the society actively informing our perceptions.

    “American racist tropes tend to be constructed in ways that render black women one-dimensional,” says Mikki Kendall, a writer and cofounder of “So when Serena refuses to be the kindly self-effacing Mammy, the over-sexed Jezebel, or the harridan Sapphire, media organizations don’t know how to handle her. She is beautiful, strong, successful, and presents a model of femininity that is very familiar to black American communities, even if it is the antithesis of white expectations.”

    • eliihass says:

      “…In Williams’s case, not even her life story—one that aligns perfectly with the narrative of the American dream and has seen her represent the U.S. on some of sports’ most mythic stages—grants her the humanity she is so routinely denied.

      “If Serena were smaller, lighter, and less connected to her roots she would probably be more popular,” says Kendall. “But racism means that many Americans look at her refusal to be ashamed of coming from the inner city, her rejection of European beauty aesthetics, and her spectacular record and see a negro that doesn’t know her place.”

      In the strictest sense, Williams indeed does not know her place…”

      The truth is slowly – trickle by trickle – being confessed and spoken out loud for all to hear… All has not yet being confessed or told – there’s still more .. And this confession about the dehumanization of black women not just by white people, but also by some black men and even a few black women as conditioned by our society, applies to more than just Serena;

      Thank you SG, Ametia and Rikyrah for this safe and truth-telling space that allows each of our truths to be spoken without dilution or fear of rejection – even if not everyone always agrees or embraces our specific individual perspectives or the way we articulate them..

      I have a lot of frustration and anger about this issue; It is very important to me – and I find that where any person lands on this issue as reflected not in their rhetoric, but in their real actions, essentially informs my view of them –

      • Ametia says:

        eliihaas, you’ll always have a safe space here to do your TRUTH-TELLING.

        I too am angry. And I don’t have time to sugar coat how I feel or waht I think. That NYT articles was vicious, racist, attack on Serena. And the timing was planned to jangle her nerves before the finals earlier today. But Serena showed up and showed out by winning.

        Feel free to DO YOU, lady. We appreciate you!

      • eliihass says:

        Thank you so much dear Ametia, thank you..

    Damon Young, 7/9/15

    Serena Williams just beat Maria Sharapova. Again. Because that’s what she does. Chew bubble gum, beat Maria Sharapova, and win majors. And I have no doubt that, as long as she doesn’t become too distracted by the emojis Drake is texting her right now, she will beat Garbine Muguruza in the Wimbledon final.
    There is a particular type of person who will read that last paragraph and become very angry. Whose soul is nicked with every one of her victories. And this tickles me. I am motherfucking tickled. Because it’s almost as if Serena Williams was specifically and intentionally created with the intention of pissing off the most racist sports fans possible. Her entire existence is an elaborate troll for White tears.

    Be from Compton? Check. Dominate a sport traditionally dominated by conventionally attractive and affluent White women? Check. Do this while being “so thick that everybody else in the room is so uncomfortable“? Check. Rock literally every hairstyle every Black American woman has ever rocked, and sometimes all at the exact same time? Check. Despite endless attacks on her looks and “masculinity”, continue to have some of the most eligible Black bachelors in the country (literally) fight over her? Check. Have an active dad who gives no fucks about what White people think? Check. Do absolutely nothing remotely criminal or even rude, making the tearjerkers scour the Earth for shit to criticize? Check.

  6. rikyrah says:


    is there a rule that those who play at Wimbledon, must play in white clothing?

    Just looking at the Wimbledon wins vs. other tournaments, and Serena only has white on.

    Carolyn Edgar @carolynedgar
    Venus Williams fought for equal pay for women in tennis. The haters who want to see the Williams Sisters out of tennis should remember that.

    • Ametia says:

      C’mon now, Carol Edgar. Venus & Serena have to do everything expected of them, shy of BLEACHING themselves. And don’t think for one minute that thought hasn’t crossed the HATERS’ minds.

  12. rikyrah says:

    I remember when she won her first Grand Slam – that US Open. I remember it seemed like everyone was surprised, her family, Serena herself, because they all thought that Venus would win first.

    • Ametia says:


      • eliihass says:

        Someday I’ll tell all of you my family here why I don’t necessarily embrace these feel-good tweets from the likes of BWD and others…

    • Ametia says:

      I get it, eliihaas. White guilt is just as useless as white tears. It takes real action, along with words to affect the conciousness of hate.

      • eliihass says:

        That certain ‘guilt’ you speak of Ametia, and what is in my opinion a mostly forced outrage so many express in their presumed solidarity with us, is usually selective, conditional and contingent upon their defined boundaries and expectations of us at various times, including while they’re in solidarity with us…It’s what I call the Berkeley liberal mindset. Similar only to a missionary complex that can as quickly turn vicious, hostile and vindictive if the one being saved or supported ever dares step out of line and is at any point deemed as not being humble or grateful enough, and worse, getting too big for their britches..Or simply declines the aid being offered in the first place, because the do not wish to be beholden..

        It’s not a natural, generous or spontaneous empathy that’s all-encompassing – rather it’s done consciously or unconsciously specifically for certain black people: when it’s the cause or news de jour and the specific black person – victim or hero – has become a symbol for a specific cause. Or in other instances, because the predominantly white mainstream has decided that this particular black person is unlike all the others, and therefore deserving of elevation and respect (to the exclusion of most other black people).

        And the effusive, overly exaggerated (even obsessive) support and defense that follows (to be wielded in the future as incontrovertible evidence that they do indeed like and support black people – and have black friends). That is of course until the selected black person’s luck runs out and like has happened to Cosby, they become worse than pariahs. Immediately relieving their former white cheerleaders of the need to continue to over-exert themselves pretending to like and respect their once token black model, who is now returned to a worse place and fate than he’d previously occupied before occupying the worthy (token) black person status.

        Now, maybe if Cosby were infinitely more attractive, cooler, had swag and didn’t pretend to be a devoted husband to a black woman, and had played it ‘smooth’, who knows…? Maybe the same women who had no respect or regard for his black wife to begin with, and were all too willing to go unaccompanied to go hangout all alone with a married man at night in hotel rooms, at the playboy mansion and other questionable venues, wouldn’t have been quite so incensed at being scorned, or being taken advantage of (if only he’d asked nicely and maybe promised to leave his wife at some point). Nor would they have eventually turned him in for what they hope will be a hefty cash payout…But that’s a theory we’ll have to put to test some other time – after we’ve dealt with war, world hunger and other more pressing matters..

      • Ametia says:

        Ooooooh, Lady. You packed a punch here! I can’t even with some of these folks. I tried on a few sites, but we decided right away that having our blog, we can comment how we like.

        I do get weary of the fake outrage, though, and we at 3 Chics will not be put in our place, because this is our place. And folks sure have come here and tried, make no mistake about this.

        And don’t forget the ‘mammy’ figures who are quick to support these folks, who will act out in the most envious ways, lurking & throwing shade at us on Twitter, while avoid coming here directly to comment.

        Spot on about your observations with Cosby, Tiger, etc. they are prime examples of how being put on a pedestal by certain folks is so dangerous. The very folks who claims to have put you up there will knock you down, when it suits them.

        The double-standard, RACISM & hypocrisy is palpable!

      • Eliihass and Ametia

        Keep truth telling. We are free to write what we want. We’re not beholden to anyone.

    • Ametia says:

      Plus, our thoughts & words carry the force of truth for us, because we EXPERINECE this shit on the regular. We don’t need to lean on the voices of white folks to validate our thoughts & feelings. Unless they are out in their communities and working with their own families to affect change, their tweets are for naught.

    • Ametia says:

      Serena Williams was born in AMERICA. PERIOD.

      She’s BLACK, and these folks don’t have to LOVE her. If she counted on whites to love her, she’d be a failure. That’s the game.

    serena williams – an appreciation and a lament
    By Liberal Librarian

    Full disclosure: I have not always been a Serena fan.

    Not because she’s “manly”.

    Not because she’s “classless”.

    Not because she’s “hood”.

    My ambivalence towards her was purely sporting. It always seemed like she wasn’t quite living up to her potential. And now I realize that was churlish.

    She went through a few years of injuries which would have ended most careers. And those injuries, and her recovery from them, seemed to revitalize her.

    She came back stronger. She came back with a fierce determination. She came back with a renewed love of her game.

    She came back to dominate a sport in a manner which no other athlete has.

    Jordan hasn’t. Mayweather hasn’t. Tiger hasn’t.

    What Serena has done in the past few years, and seems bent on doing for a few years more, is nothing short of miraculous. We haven’t seen the like in modern sports.

    Just shy of her 34th birthday, at age at which the hunters from “Logan’s Run” should have already done their business, she is playing better with every match. No one can stand against her. When she loses it’s headline news, because it seems as if she’s forgotten how to lose. I came to the realization earlier this year that she has a chance to be a competitive force on the WTA into her late 30s – early 40s. And by “competitive”, I mean that she’ll still win Grand Slams.

    Any other athlete would be lauded, rose petals would be strewn before her feet, she’d be lionized.

    But not Serena.

    Much like our first black President, nothing she does is ever good enough. As at the beginning of this essay, she looks different, or acts differently, or is classless, or is “hood”.

    Like Barack Obama, her accomplishments have to be derided and denied. She has to be taken down several pegs. She has to be put in her place.

    • Ametia says:

      HONESTY! What’s so hard about being this honest about reasons for admiring/not admiring Serena.


      Like Barack Obama, her accomplishments have to be derided and denied. She has to be taken down several pegs. She has to be put in her place.

    • eliihass says:

      Yup. Important too that not just her record, but the character and story of the woman herself is always preserved and guarded against the stealth re-writing of history that so often happens when we aren’t paying attention. Guard always against all attempts to diminish her and her story over time..

  14. rikyrah says:


    I’ll say this again because Serena Williams is proving it true again today:

    In the minds of White folks:

    You can be rich, but not richer than them.
    You can be beautiful, but not more beautiful than them.
    You can be talented, but not more talented than them.
    You can be the best, but not better than them.

    The world of White Privilege is crumbling and 2520s are having a hard time with it.

  15. Ametia says:


    The NYT and the white men are ALL about CONTROLLING WOMEN, if these white women want them to control them, so be it. It’s their whiteness & delusional standard of beauty they hold in their FICKLE, sexist, racist heads.

    They can’t control Venus & Serena Williams. They NEVER could.

    The very thought of Mr. Williams, their father coaching and managing his daughters sent them into UTTER MADNESS.

    Serena & Venus are beautiful, strong, intelligent, accomplished, educated, talented BLACK women.b>

    Don’t none of you COME FOR BLACK WOMEN, unless we SEND FOR YOU.

        You have to give this man his due! A poor black man in Compton with not much of an education, who defied everything to invest in and teach his two black daughters to excel at the game previously reserved for upper crust white folk..

        That’s why they hated him. He did not fear them and he more than reciprocated their contempt for him, with an equal if not more unhidden contempt for them…

      • eliihass says:

        I’m happy to see that some white folks are starting to publicly admit the obvious…

        But it’s got to be more than feel-good tweets that mostly serve to patronize new black allies acquired as a result of a shared interest in a politically nostalgic moment…

        Black women have been dehumanized for far too long, and far too many have been scarred and destroyed because of it…
