Cartoon depicting tantrum-throwing Serena

USA Today Sports, by Staff

Serena Williams´ loss to Naomi Osaka in the US Open final on Saturday is still causing consternation and controversy across the tennis world. The latest bit of fuel to the fire: A cartoon depicting a tantrum-throwing Williams that appeared Monday in the Melbourne, Australia, newspaper The Herald Sun. Social media erupted with charges of racism. Among the outraged: Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, a noted Serena fan. "Well done on reducing one of the greatest sportswomen alive to racist and sexist tropes and turning a second great sportswoman into a faceless prop," she tweeted. Her response drew more than 10,000

She is a fantastic athlete. It’s a shame she acted like such a brat. Equally a shame that we are inundated with so many sycophants who instantly demand that she be treated differently than anyone else in her position because of identity politics. She was a sore loser and all of the socialists who booed the winner should be equally ashamed.

Calling someone out for their boorish behavior is neither racist nor sexist. Show a little class, the men like Arthur Ashe who paved the way for you did, as did the women like Althea Gibson. Show some respect to their memory.

So now being called out for being a very poor sportswoamn is racism. It appears any black can do anything and never be held accountable for their behavior. Its called celebrating diversity.

There are many better practitioners of the art than Serena on the circuit. She simply overwhelmed them in sheer physique and strength. Here was an opponent who was taller by inches and same weight. The advantage was gone. That is what the tantrum was about. Unluckily for her the umpire saw through it.

The only thing wrong about that cartoon is that it portrayed Naomi Osaka as a blonde.

And, somebody is fudging on the weight, because I do not believe that the 2 women are the same weight. Serena Williams has a good 25-30 lbs. over Osaka. Serena is getting older and had to lose eventually. I thought that the lefties liked when the underdog won. Williams has tons of money, now they can spread it around - I bet Osaka does not have nearly as much as Serena.
As Obama once said "there comes a time when you´ve made enough money." Obviously he does not practice what he preaches, but what else is new?

You wonder why people clutch their purse tighter in elevators, walk on the other side of the street and follow you around when you are shopping. Play by the rules everyone else plays by or expect to be shunned when possible and given only what courtesy the law requires. People do not want hate and drama every time you don´t get your way. Eventually, the passive aggressiveness will be actual aggressiveness and you will find out that your belligerence and attitude will not be enough to prevent you from getting your just deserts.

JK Rowling wrote some great fiction about evil totalitarians seeking to exercise their influence over everyone, driven by an identity agenda. It is incredibly ironic that JK is here reinforcing an almost identical agenda after writing 8 novels chronicling the struggle against it!

They don´t seem to mind the tantrum itself, but the cartoon is offensive? ...and, Williams is the one who "reduced one of the greatest sportswomen alive", and in some ways, her sport.

17k fine, deducted from $1.85 million for losing is not even a slap on the wrist. A multi tournament suspension would be more appropriate.

I think the cartoon captured the Serena meltdown just fine.
If there is a next time, she should leave her attitude in the locker room. I thought she was a poor sport.
You judge a person by the way they accept defeat. Serena made it clear that she is a sore loser. She is getting ´older´ and sooner or later she will have to hang up the racket. She should try doing that with grace and dignity. She can´t take back her bad behavior. It is forever recorded in tennis history.

She´s blackish, so nobody but other than blackish people are allowed to criticize her, but if a blackish person were to criticize her that person wouldn´t be truly black, since all true blacks are Democrats and they never criticize women, blacks, gays, illegal immigrants or anybody, really other than Donald Trump.

Oh, and gorillas would be allowed to criticize her as one of their own. If only they could talk.

Well it’s just not politically correct to criticize a Black lady for having a public tantrum.

If you have watched the audio-video taken during the incident, it is pretty clear that if Serena had access to a firearm, that she would have blown the Euroweenie Tennis umpire right off his high chair, then blamed her gun, and by extension National Rifle Association (NRA).

Cartoons are meant to exaggerate physical features etc. It´s called caricature. It would be silly not to use it to depict Serena simply because she´s a woman as well as a woman of color. JK Rowling is making a mountain out of a molehill and doing what she´s good at doing in her books - ie fantasizing.

How to caricature black people without exaggerating their features?

Is Serena a public figure or not and how many non-color people have followed her and he sister´s careers with admiration?

The only reason people like J. K. Rowling show deference to Serena is because Serena is African-American. The white guilt is palpable. It’s ironic that the opponent in that cartoon is a blonde. Serena was playing another black person, just not an African-American. But African-Americans have a special place in the pantheon of white guilt. And people like J. K. Rowling can virtue signal in public about African-Americans and make themselves feel/look good.

Serena is NOT a victim here. Osaka and Ramos were victims of Serena’s victimology. The sport of Tennis and the reputation of Ameican athletes were the victims.

JK Rowling is being sexist and mysogenistic for calling her a sportsWOMAN. And what is all the work for women that Serena said she will continue to do? Or is it only black women? She can start by apologizing to Naomi Osaka. This was an eye opener for Alexis and Naomi, fo’ sho’!

Democrats thinking about running for president in 2020 are dramatically changing the way the party talks about race in Donald Trump’s America: Get ready to hear a lot more about intersectionality, allyship, inclusivity and POC. White and nonwhite Democratic hopefuls are talking more explicitly about race than the party’s White House aspirants ever have — and shrugging off warnings that embracing so-called identity politics could distract from the party’s economic message and push white voters further into Donald Trump’s arms. While the 2020 primary will feature debates about Medicare for all and college affordability, the Democratic base also wants

As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that.” But the former Georgia state representative and Democratic nominee for governor did essentially end her campaign and recognize that her opponent, Brian Kemp, the GOP nominee and former state secretary of state, will officially win the election. “I acknowledge that Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in

WASHINGTON - President Trump plans to visit California on Saturday “to meet with individuals impacted by the wildfires,” a spokeswoman said on Thursday. The White House has not yet given details on where Trump will go, what he will do and whom he plans to visit. During visits to other natural disaster sites, Trump has focused on meeting with first responders and public officials, and has had less direct contact with victims than his predecessors. This will be just Trump’s second visit to the nation’s most populous state since his election. His first California visit, which he made in March

The results of the statewide machine recount which rolled by the Thursday 3 p.m. deadline, solidified what most already knew, as DeSantis has already made himself busy with transitioning to power and creating a new government. In the governor’s race, it was an anticlimactic finish to the dramatic machine recount — plagued with technical issues and an avalanche of lawsuits — with almost not change in the margin between DeSantis and his Democratic opponent, Andrew Gillum

Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peter´s Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium.

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make

California Gov. Jerry Brown appears to have quietly admitted President Donald Trump´s suggestion about improving California forestry was correct and is now urging state lawmakers to loosen restrictive logging regulations put in place to appease environmentalists. The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that Brown is proposing one of the most significant changes to the state´s logging rules in nearly half a century. "Gov. Jerry Brown is proposing broad new changes to California’s logging rules that would allow landowners to cut larger trees and build temporary roads without obtaining a permit as a way to thin more forests across the state," the

In a lengthy, taped interview that aired on Sunday, Fox News´s Chris Wallace asked President Donald Trump some expected questions -- about the Mueller investigation, "fake news," the election, the Kashoggi murder, his divisive tone -- and then came something unexpected. Wallace wondered if Trump would try to amend the Constitution so he could serve a third term. The exchange began when Wallace asked the president to rank himself "in the pantheon of great presidents." "There is Lincoln and Washington, there´s FDR and Reagan. Do you make the top 10?" Wallace asked Trump. "I think I´m doing a great job," Trump said. "I would

Before killing himself with a drug intended for rapid and painless animal euthanasia, Richard A. Morrisett had endured a nightmare at the University of Texas in Austin. The 57-year-old tenured professor of pharmacology and toxicology was once a rising star in the College of Pharmacy – a man regarded as a first-rate research scientist and teacher during his 21 years at the state´s flagship university. Morrisett´s research offered new insights into alcohol-related brain disorders and alcoholism – an arcane area of research among neuroscientists. Some colleagues called him “brilliant.” Morrisett´s career, however, was destroyed by a single newspaper article. Published

Scientists say they have uncovered how and why wombats produce cube-shaped poo - the only known species to do so. The Australian marsupial can pass up to 100 deposits of poop a night and they use the piles to mark territory. The shape helps it stop rolling away. Despite having round anuses like other mammals, wombats do not produce round pellets, tubular coils or messy piles. Researchers revealed on Sunday the varied elasticity of the intestines help to sculpt the poop into cubes. "The first thing that drove me to this is that I have never seen anything this weird in biology. That was
