NEW YORK – APRIL 06: Actor/rapper Common and tennis player Serena Williams attend the premiere of “Date Night” at Ziegfeld Theatre on April 6, 2010, in New York City.
That’s always something I’ve wanted as long as I could remember.
When a celebrity gets engaged, it’s likely to be met with commentary from the peanut gallery from all sides.
But the underlying factors in the racial comments directed at Williams’ engagement are problematic, and in hotep fashion, lack context around her blackness and how she can be pro-black and yet have a white fiancé.
Here's how this power couple from opposite worlds fell in love.
Williams composed a poem to go along with the announcement: "I came home/A little late/Someone had a bag packed for me/And a carriage awaited/Destination: Rome/To escort me to my very own "charming"/Back to where our stars first collided/And now it was full circle/At the same table we first met by chance/This time he made it not by chance/But by choice/Down on one knee/He said 4 words/And/r/isaidyes." Ohanian responded: "My Dearest Baby," she wrote. You taught me the true meaning of serenity and peace. I can't wait for you to join the players box next year. 😉 from the world's oldest number one to the world's youngest number one.
Serena Williams, the famed female tennis star, told her over 2 million followers on Twitter that she no longer dates.
Whether the rumors, men, or just dating has gotten to her, no one knows, but one thing is for sure- she will "never date again," according to her Twitter feed."I will never date again is what I mean," Williams responded to a user, Keith Oneal1, who asked her "You don't 'date' what exactly do you do?
Serena Williams has stood defiant as a black woman, even when black men disrespected her with sexist, misogynistic, transphobic remarks over her looks or for simply being a passionate, bossed up black woman.
Whether spoken or unspoken, many of us have attempted to have this conversation to only be met with surface level analysis that treats race as a monolith with no understanding of how one can fight for their own people while loving the race they are seemingly ‘fighting’ against.
The 35-year-old Williams, who over the summer won Wimbledon for the seventh time to tie Steffi Graf's record of 22 Grand Slam titles, had announced her engagement to Ohanian earlier Thursday on her verified account on Reddit, the user-generated news website he co-founded in 2005 with college roommate Steve Huffman."I came home.
Serena has been giving tennis the two-finger salute for more than half her life. "Lots of my friends have been telling me lately that I'm spoiled," Serena says with a baffled look on her face. I'm not spoiled.'" I almost spit Coke through my nose. If she'd pulled a Jamesian I'm-taking-my-talents-to-South Beach event, she would have put it on pay-per-view and hawked her Home Shopping Network-all-under-a-hundred-bucks fashion line during the commercial breaks.
Williams remained patient as the dating question came up more than once."Would you go out on a date if I sent u a pic?
