Serena Williams: Latest Victim of Racial Slur

What’s a good tennis match without throwing out a racial epithet.  Serena Williams said in a press conference  that a white spectator called her a “nigger”
“The guy said, ‘Hit the net like any Negro would,’ ” Williams said, later explaining she had cleaned up the language for the news conference and that he actually used the N-word. “I was shocked. I couldn’t believe it. I had to do a double take. I think I hit a double fault on that point.”

My hats go off to Serena.  Because she still handled her business in spite of someone’s ignorance.
