In the shadow of the passing of Muhammad Ali, Serena Williams finds herself in a parallel position on many fronts when compared to the Greatest himself.
While it may appear to the naked eye in the present that the world absolutely loves Muhammad Ali over and above what we’ve witnessed with any other iconic figure, the fact of the matter is that for a very long time he was hated by an overwhelming amount of individuals who did not subscribe to well to his outspoken demeanor or his views on what was transpiring on American soil with the Civil Rights movement as well as the Vietnam War.
Well as much as times have changed they still remain the same with the hate doled out to one who refuses to fit into the narrow box that we are supposed to squeeze into as a people.
Not only is Serena Williams a dominant champion in a sport that has thus far been accepted as one that was ruled by Whites, she also changed the dynamic of the game with her style, charisma and “in your face” outspoken manner that has pissed off many who feel as though she should simply be happy to be “allowed” into a place where the Black numbers have be slim to none.
So once again Serena Williams is the Muhammad Ali of our present time and the media outlets seem to have a field day with the put downs and coded language used to minimize her accomplishments and demonize her as a person no matter how many great things she has done to help others.
Today we discuss the phenomenon of Serena Williams as well as a society that hasn’t seemed to make any progress from the days of Muhammad Ali’s boxing dominance no matter how much they posture today to act as though they love the man.
Serena Williams seems to bring out how many Whites in America truly feel about Black success.
