There’s been a lot of controversy about tennis player Serena Williams getting engaged to a white man recently. Her fiancée is Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. There’s been a lot of talk in black media about this. I didn’t think it was that big of a deal at first. At least to me. Serena had dated rapper Common for many years. And most recently she dated biracial rapper Drake. But I wasn’t really shocked because she and her sister Venus have dated white men before.
Here’s Serena with ex boyfriend Brett Ratner. He’s a film director and not a very good one at that.
Serena also dated her French coach Patrick Mouratoglou.
Here’s an interesting video(above) by Rashida Strober. She gives a good commentary on why Serena may have gotten with a white man. This is has been a subject on the minds of many black people. Did Serena just give up on black love? Is she just a bed wench?
In this video(above) this brother talks about Serena saying that white men have treated her better in relationships. Is that really true? Or is she just saying that? Is this a good reason to date white folks? Or is it just a cop out? Check out the videos and let me know your thoughts. Also be sure to check out BlackMyStory’s post on this topic.
