Serena Williams’ Racist Defense of Rape; Would She Attack a Black Victim of a White Rapist?

By Debbie Schlussel

Would Serena Williams have attacked a rape victim in Steubenville, Ohio if the races were reversed? If the victim had been Black and both of her two convicted rapists had been White (one was Black)?

Got Racism? Serena Williams Does

That’s the question no one dares ask in the outrage over the champion tennis player’s comments attacking the rape victim. And I think we all know the answer. No, she wouldn’t have said a thing. Richard Williams, father of Venus and Serena Williams, is well known for playing the race card and saying–despite all his daughters’ success in the tennis world–that the whole world is raaaaacist! against them. It’s the thousand-pound chip the Williams family seems to enjoy wearing on its collective shoulder as its fave fashion accessory. Keep that in mind as you read her controversial statement, which should be more controversial because of the racism involved, rather than the question about the actions of the victim. With regard to the convicted football player rapists (a Black guy and a White guy), she told Rolling Stone:

Do you think it was fair, what they got? They did something stupid, but I don’t know. I’m not blaming the girl, but if you’re a 16-year-old and you’re drunk like that, your parents should teach you: don’t take drinks from other people. She’s 16, why was she that drunk where she doesn’t remember? It could have been much worse. She’s lucky. Obviously I don’t know, maybe she wasn’t a virgin, but she shouldn’t have put herself in that position, unless they slipped her something, then that’s different.






Do you really think she’d have said this if the races were reversed in the story? Take the alleged Duke fraternity “rape” of a Black stripper, a few years ago. As it turned out, the stripper was NEVER raped, and the whole story was made up and then pursued by a zealous prosecutor who has since been disbarred. But I never heard Serena Williams say anything about that, or about how the Black stripper’s mother should have taught her not to strip for frat boys and put herself at risk (for an alleged crime that, again, never really happened.

I do think that we all have to take personal responsibility for our actions, and there is substance to the concept of women not getting drunk off their butts so that they do not put themselves in this situation. When they do, they share part of the blame for what happens to them. This does not, however, excuse the behavior of those who take advantage of the situation and rape a woman who is not in control of her ability to consent. Still, I never heard Serena Williams wade into this debate when the races were reversed. And that’s because she really couldn’t care less about the sex-while-drunk debate. This is about race and racism. Serena Williams’ racism. (Her bigotry also includes defending the United Arab Emirates’ apartheid decision to ban a tennis player from its big tournament, based solely on the player’s status as an Israeli Jew.)

Serena Williams is a racist, plain and simple. And her apology, today, over her comments doesn’t include an apology for that. She’s still a racist.

And I didn’t need her to do a Crip Walk victory dance at a tennis tournament to figure that out.

Anti-White racism is both popular and politically correct these days. The Obama Era was supposed to heal America’s racial divides and bring us all closer together.

Serena Williams’ racist defense of rape shows us that we still have a long way to go towards true racial equality. Her apology non apology reveals we aren’t geting there any time soon.

Rape is wrong, period no matter the identity of the assailant. People who make excuses for criminals make excuses for other forms of wrong-doing and they don’t show empathy for the victim. Serena Williams is famous – but she ain’t got no class, that’s for sure!

NormanF on June 19, 2013 at 4:02 pm

At the risk of having you rip me apart I would like to know why is a woman at least partially responsible for being raped just because she was irresponsible and got way too drunk? I know you mentioned that this does not in any way excuse the rapist. I get it that you believe that. But why is she in any way responsible?

IAM: I think it’s pretty self-explanatory. If she’s drunk, she put herself in a situation where, for example, she may have implied consent by her behavior of which she’s not in control. Some drunk women come on to men. We don’t know for sure whether or not that happened here. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if the person is drunk, and then it is partly the victim’s fault and not necessarily the man’s. In this situation, I believe the woman was so drunk she was unconscious, so the rape was entirely unexcusable. But had she been sober and conscious, she probably could have left. DS

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Her old man was another prize. What happened to that poor girl was horrible. Those two were animals. Black and white. She should stick to her crip walk. Maybe her and lil wayne can step all over an evil American flag.

samurai on June 19, 2013 at 4:29 pm

Sounds familiar…
“So sad, too bad,…No one told her to go there. She knew the risks… Now she knows. Or so we’d hope.”

N: Apparently, you missed the part about “personal responsibility.” Lara Logan had none when she cheered on Muslim savages, then was shocked–shocked!–when they did what Muslim savages always do: rape, torture, and kill. DS

Nikki on June 19, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    p bone, why are you using a chick’s name?

    skzion on June 19, 2013 at 6:59 pm

      Aw, sorry Skzion. He’s back hiding under the Frigidaire.

      Also, if he’s going to allude to the Lara Logan thread, he should at least have the cojones to cogently state his case. Instead of a hit & run job.

      But I reckon cockroaches don’t do that.

      Skunky on June 19, 2013 at 10:44 pm

Serena meant what she said. Her agent is back-peddling on her statement only to protect Serena’s mini-empire.

Lars on June 19, 2013 at 5:07 pm

Hey it’s Babylon system. Some are going down harder than others and some are going all the way.

A whore’s whore never sympathizes with other whores.

migraine boy on June 19, 2013 at 5:08 pm

An apt question to ask and one I thought of before I tweeted the story myself. To myself I had doubts that she WOULD speak up such as she did if the victim was Black. And I made a mental note that one of the rapists was indeed a Black kid.

As an avid tennis fan (who can’t indulge in following the tour as I have voraciously in the past) I have NEVER liked the Williams’. Still, I was shocked at her candor in what she said. I agree with the sentiment of responsibility. I don’t believe in “date” rape. I believe in rape. Or as Whoopie Goldberg says “Rape, Rape”.

And to apologize. No courage in her convictions. I would NOT apologize if I meant what I said. I did not like what was done to the girl and I am glad the rapers were prosecuted BUT she acted disgustingly and should not have trusted such vermin…who used and mocked her, did not treat her as a human being with dignity and they just couldn’t have given two sh**s about her.

In 2013 you have to protect yourself from such opportunists AND their apologists.

Anyone got some “Black Flag”. I see the Cockroach has come out from under the fridge…

Skunky on June 19, 2013 at 5:46 pm

I get what Serena said was insensitive and most likely wasn’t thinking when she said this, but for Debbie to inject race or to even ask the question is just foolish. Then to see the regs chime in with more inane assessments is No Good for No one. America will never be color blind as long as there is commentaries such as this.

Big D on June 19, 2013 at 6:00 pm

    Big, Dumb Dinky, what Serena said was NOT insensitive…it was actually TRUE. Trouble is, she would have never commented on it publicly if the victim was Black and if one of the rapers were NOT Black.

    DS asked a great question! One I thought of myself. And anyone who knows of her dubious background would have thought of it, too.

    No place will EVER be “color blind”. You seem to lack an understanding for the human condition but love Libtard platitudes. That won’t get you far. But we know that about you already.

    Skunky on June 19, 2013 at 6:25 pm

So Commons concubine has come out from under her rock to showcase her stupidity. There is no way in hello that this racist twit would say what she said if the races of the parties involved were reversed. I like tennis very much but I’ve grown tired of this retards actions. It looks like she’s taken her moronic dads attitude a magnified it. Also im getting sick and tired of this cow on the cover of magazines. She is NOT pretty. That is if you call looking like the First Wookie pretty. It is sad that the tennis world has to deal with this fool and her equally gorgeous sister. I’m just waiting for the day when this racist blockhead gets mad during a match and hits herself with her racket. Now that would be funny.

Ken b on June 19, 2013 at 6:34 pm

The only reason she made the comment is not because she is so rapt with the case, the interviewer asked a question is what people seem to forget. Serena did not just voluntarily offer this opinion. Come on Skunk, you know better than that. Come on people just enjoy her tennis, forget her verbal mishaps.

Big D on June 19, 2013 at 7:03 pm

    Big D, your denial of black racism against whites is positively Islamic.

    The Williams sisters are a-holes as well.

    As for their tennis, well, I hate women’s tennis. It’s sorry stuff. The Williams sisters remind me of the East German “women” swimmers. They are surely taking male hormones. Given that women’s tennis is so bleak, at least let them be charming.

    skzion on June 19, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    Yes Big D(ope) we should just forget this ugly ape looking racist harridans “verbal mishaps” because she’s a “good” tennis player. Dude you need to get your canoe off denial and get back to reality.

    Ken b on June 19, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    Big, Dumb Dinky you reliably are a candidate for the RIF truck.

    If only one would drive by your ghetto to give you a dog-eared copy of “Green Eggs & Ham”.

    You just don’t get it. But DS does.

    RIF=Reading IS Fundamental!

    Skunky on June 19, 2013 at 8:33 pm

Ain’t they horrifically ugly?

AR on June 19, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    AR. I hope that “AR” has a 15 after it.

“Anti-White racism is both popular and politically correct these days. The Obama Era was supposed to heal America’s racial divides and bring us all closer together.” – NormanF

NormanF’s quote above is, as almost everything he says, all too correct. I have been exposed to this for almost the past 53 years, since I was four years old and living in the projects on West 125th St. in Manhattan. As for The Obama Era, it did bring us all closer together Norman, AGAINST white people. There are more and more white people stepping out against white people. Earlier tonight, Mark Levin was railing against this phenomenon, but I didn’t get to hear it all because my internet connection got knocked off during his rant.

Doesn’t matter, as I’ve been exposed to this for so long, I saw this coming with this smug, arrogant, two-bit fake, phony, fraud when he was still on the campaign trail. Councilman Charles Barron of NYC bragged to Bill O’Reilly years ago about the fact that they were going to get reparations passed. Well, reparations HAVE been passed, in one form or another, and are being doled out as we speak. And that includes cultural reparations. It’s an upside down world, and with this story coming on the heels of Debbie’s report about the Muslim piece of shit (THAT’S RIGHT, I SAID IT!!!) who raped the 12 year old in Kaliforniya, it’s just part of the flow of our new cultural river. An abhorrent torrent, indeed.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on June 19, 2013 at 8:12 pm

They are ugly as gorilla cookies like Fred Sanford so brilliantly said.

Ajax on June 19, 2013 at 10:33 pm

What I find nauseating is not that that girl acted imprudently or that a couple of drunk highschoolers acted like animals. It’s that a bunch of their classmates stood around filming it on their cell phones. BARF,

We watch the news for a while, and the infamous Steubenville rape case flashes on the TV – two high school football players raped a drunk 16-year-old, while other students watched and texted details of the crime.

The story behind the story here is the fact of the continual dumbing down of our society by giving celebutards like this a platform from which to spew their inanities. The state run media eats up and puts out the “statements” by the likes of this tennis player, Whoopi Goldberg, Redford, Streisand, etc. for the low (NO) information voter to quote as Gospel. “If Robert Redford said it, it must be true.” We have been pushed into what I call, “The era of the celebrity,” from the current occupant living in public housing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to the slime on TV. Lower the standards is the byword. Watch the Kardashians. Watch the arm waving harridans on CNN – they are the ones who know everything. Listen to Mika the Moron if you want “Facts.” Spend your time watching American Idol – or, as I call it, American “Idle.” Be sure to catch John Stewart for the “Real” news. Be sure to consider Joe Biden for POTUS in ’16, after all, he is a genius by today’s standards. Do NOT read a book. Above all, do NOT read the Bible….it’s “so old.” Ask a low information drone to name one of their senators, one member of the Supreme Court, why there are thirteen stripes on our Flag, who fought in our Civil War, who we fought in WW 2, who was our first POTUS, etc and they’ll stare at you with a blank look. Above all, NEVER ask one of the current crop of “Teachers” these questions. They wouldn’t have a clue. A few years back, a contestant on a quiz show was asked, “What gas makes up the majority percentage of our atmosphere?” The question was for big dollars and the contestant did not know the answer. He was allowed one phone call to an “Expert.” He chose his high school science teacher. The “Teacher” was called……and immediately answered, “Oxygen.” The contestant used this as his answer….after all, he was sure the “Science teacher” would have the right answer to this simple question. Unfortunately, the contestant, obviously lost since the correct answer is Nitrogen. Such is the state of education and our society today.

Has anyone noticed the “crip” gang sign that the girl on the right (I don’t know which sister it is) is throwing with her right hand?

Bobby on June 20, 2013 at 11:00 am

    Good get, Bobby. We know how chummy the Williams sisters are with the Crips.

    skzion on June 20, 2013 at 10:08 pm

Strange entry. And you guys always accuse minorities of using the race card, yet here you are looking for race where it isn’t mentioned.

Titanic dude on June 20, 2013 at 11:30 am

    Td, your typical contribution here involves drooling over some evil guy. Is your point that gay men are superficial sluts? I note, furthermore, that you never engage my points. This makes you a troll. A superficial, homosexual, slutty troll.

    In this case, what exactly do you find mystifying? The point of this thread is that charges of racism are used strategically, depending on the races involved. So, when blacks are being victimized, especially by whites, it’s racism and a holy cause for the black victims. But when whites are being victimized, especially by blacks, it’s not racism, and one should blame the victims and defend the perpetrators.

    So, if one varies the race of victims and perpetrators, one can predict that the very same interaction will be spun in different ways. NOT mentioning race is thus part of the prediction, just as harping on race is the other part.

    skzion on June 20, 2013 at 4:48 pm

I’ve given up the politics of self-hate that’s been crammed down our throats for at least four decades. It is one of the biggest atrocities that has ever been perped on the American people. The liberal, dhimmi, sanctimonious, self-hating left does not own the default position of righteousness. So, f’ck them.

Pray Hard on June 20, 2013 at 12:05 pm

Look how the bigots come out, calling them apes, etc, and of course D.S uses one of the oldest unflattering pictures they have taken in their illustrious careers. They wore those tore up beads when they first came in the league. Ha ha, anyone can see through this crap.
Skion no one denies black racism against whites, what the hell are you talking about, see this is just a foolish thread. Complete madness. Lol @ “theyre taking steroids” what a fool indeed. Called genetics moron. Serena isnt all about power anymore, she’s adroit and skilled now. Venus pooped out.
Skunky, you’re completely out the box on this one. Completely whacked. Oh can’t wait to see if Ms. D.S puts up a Paula Deen Post. So i can enjoy some more inane foolishness, and watch how the dorks comment.

Big D on June 20, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    Get over it, Big, Dumb Dinky. I’ll be glad to be your version of “whacked” as long as you never agree with me.

    You’re so sad. I have nothing but contempt by opposite-Mensa morons like you.

    You live and breathe and love the Donk Plantation and think you’re being so awesome by being a Libtard but the joke is on YOU because you can NEVER see how you’re being played and how the side you love has complete contempt for you and sees you as “lesser than”.

    And your inability to be wise, smart and an independant thinker EARNS you that contempt of the truly contemptible.

    I do NOT feel sorry for your ilk. You’re dumb and deserve to be played. I abhor dummies like YOU. Roll in the slop. You like it and can’t see the forest for the trees.

    Skunky on June 20, 2013 at 4:00 pm

      If you are so smart funky, then why do you troll websites posting comments proclaiming your brilliance? There is a word in that the professionals have coined for you. Since you cognitive ability is so high, then you would already no what this is.

      AR on June 20, 2013 at 8:28 pm

    Big Dumb Dinky, you are incapable of critical thinking. I do suspect these “females” are taking male hormones, but even if they are not, they are masculinized, whiny, anti-white pains in the ass. They are uuuuugly. They lack decorum. They are bad winners. They play poorly, just as all women do, but there is nothing pleasing about their games to compensate.

    My hetero brother is even less sympathetic.

    I can’t stand their playing. That is relevant because you’ve been saying that we should all ignore their personal vileness for the sake of their game. Lol.

    skzion on June 20, 2013 at 4:56 pm

these two are like the baboons in the zoo because they are always throwing poop at the visitors.when ever these racist are on tv I change the channel and creeps like these two are the reason I no longer watch basketball.sk you are an ass hole troll so go back to smelling your socks.

bruce on June 20, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    Oh bruce, I’m hurt. You’re one of the few stupid, subliterate regulars that I have tolerated for the cause.

    skzion on June 20, 2013 at 10:14 pm

      By this I mean, bruce, that nearly all of the regulars are pretty darn smart.

      skzion on June 20, 2013 at 10:19 pm

You are right, Miss Debbie. And you can add whoopie goldbug to the williams’s list of phoneys.

William on June 20, 2013 at 3:55 pm

Will everyone just please lay off Serena? She’s just sharing her male point of view.

jassatt on June 20, 2013 at 4:24 pm

Too bad Skunky, because you think you know me, (calling me a liberal) QUACK! Also to add, I do sometimes think your postings are astute (one of the few on this site) but then you lower yourself with name calling and vitriolic spew, so sad to read such lame madness from obviously a sometimes thinking mind. Such a waste to read some of the drivel you type, when I know you can be, and do better.

Big D on June 21, 2013 at 12:25 am

    Save it, Big, Dumb Dinky. All I got for you is ridicule. You’re not smart enough for me to debate properly.

    Like all the Libtard fools, now you’re trying to hide your precious Libtardism. I never hide my Conservativism. I’m NOT ashamed of my Conservative ways. Every stealth Libtard here hides their Libtard ways…but I smoke ‘em out.

    And Skzion is NOT a troll. He’s one of the few here who stick up for others. I never see the peeps complaining telling the REAL trolls to take a hike…especially the ones who have been BANNED and flame others for no reason.

    Skunky on June 21, 2013 at 10:40 am

    Oh, and BDD, you ALWAYS read me…and you always will.

    The same can’t be said about me reading YOU. A day will come where I will easily skip your posts like I do the other bores here.

    And those bores ALWAYS read me. I don’t read them anymore.

    WINNING!

    Skunky on June 21, 2013 at 10:45 am

      Skunky, Big Dumb Dinky is getting even more boring. Maybe the word count is just going up, and I respond nonlinearly to his tedious chatter.

      Notice that for all BDD’s sensitivity on race, he has great contempt for women. After all, why else would he continue to perv on you when you have so clearly expressed your lack of interest? Yes, you are an merely an object for his sexual arousal. There’s nothing lower than a leftist race monger who can’t even implement proper leftist attitudes toward wimmin.

      skzion on June 21, 2013 at 4:02 pm

Skion is just a complete fool. Problem with you Skion you think every ethnicity bodies are the same, just isn’t so. Masculine is relative. Are Polynesian women masculine, or is it just their genetics. See they are normal. Venus is skinny as a typical European. Not masculine in any ethnic sense. Serena has ass, hips and fingertips, which is quite normal in black Americans. Skion you are a complete fool. Let me iterate, A Fool!

Big D on June 21, 2013 at 12:28 am

    Big Dumb Dinky, tell me again why I should care about your opinion?

    “[sic] Problem with you Skion[sic][sic] you think every ethnicity [sic] bodies are the same, [sic] just isn’t so. Masculine [sic] is relative. Are Polynesian women masculine, or is it just their genetics.[sic] See [sic] they are normal. Venus is [sic] skinny as a typical European. Not masculine in any ethnic sense [huh?]. Serena has ass, hips and fingertips, which is [sic] quite normal in black Americans [other Americans lack these?]. Skion [sic] you are a complete fool. Let me iterate [sic], A Fool!”

    That was impressive, BDD. I expect Skunky to reconsider you as a suitor shortly.

    As for the “substance,” I am not commenting on butt size. I’ve seen them play. I see them posed in the photo above (that is supposed to sell something). They are indeed masculine in appearance and behavior. I have seen plenty of Polynesian women, including a number on canvas. There is nothing “masculine” about them in general. You are dumb enough to mistake (e.g.) racial ass size differences for individual (not ethnic or racial) masculinized features and behavior. One can also be feminine but not ladylike. The Williams sisters are neither, with the latter not even up for discussion.

    skzion on June 21, 2013 at 4:18 pm

Indeed Skunky, when I find a topic that piques my curiosity and I click on it, I do look for what you have to say, I’ve said it time and time again, you’re witty sometimes, and have intelligent answers to some things on here, the others not so much. Don’t let it go to your head, you’re sharp at times, but you also can be underwhelming too.
Your problem is you think you know someone, you point, accuse, and at times don’t know what the h3ll you’re talking about. Then again, I may just be a libtard, thats a Independent Libertarian, but a Liberal, nah, you’re whacked again on that 1. I can see where you get the lib from though. When a topic on here truly catches my interest, maybe we will be on opposite sides, and I will most assuredly hand your ass to you in a debate. It will be a fun day. You cannot out think me, I LET you think you’re Winning, its not a mistake, just a setup!

Big D on June 21, 2013 at 11:39 am

Oh btw Skunky, there’s nothing you can do to stop my literary crush i have on you, its too late, its happened already. I btw can spot dry land through muddy waters, so matter how contentious you attempt to be, you have a good mind.

Big D on June 21, 2013 at 11:47 am

Thought Trent Mays was white. I knew Ma’Lik Richardson was black. See pics below.

Gerald on June 21, 2013 at 2:31 pm

Geez Debbie Schlussel you’re an idiot. This ridiculous article you posted has taken Serena’s words completely out of context. She didn’t bring race into it at all — you did. Please get a life and find something more intelligent to write.

Shira on February 17, 2014 at 3:33 am

AR, you were doing so well.

Occam’s Tool is back. He’s a prison shrink. Get help.

skzion on June 19, 2013 at 7:04 pm

Skzion, he thinks he’s getting back at me for telling him off on the other thread where he had a go at you.

For a Howard Stern fan he has NO invective. What a lousy student!

And please, for the love of Pete…some one, ANYONE tell that boring bastard that if he’s gonna call me a whore, spell it correctly H-O. It’s only 2 bloody letters!

A “hoe” is a garden implement. What he uses as a female facsimile when he’s popped his blow-up doll!

Skunky on June 19, 2013 at 8:37 pm

Skunky, did AR have a go at me on another blog entry? I have tried to discipline myself to ignore people more completely. It seems I have succeeded.

Maybe he wants to “hit it” with the hoe.

skzion on June 19, 2013 at 9:43 pm

As the cha-cha-chimpanzee. They R one and the same.

Same bores. Same dull thinkers and Same Glenn Close psycho-ness…including fright-wig!

Skunky on June 19, 2013 at 9:57 pm

You know, Skunky, at least AR seems to be down with the cause, which the chimp is not. But then he shows that personal issues trump everything.

We will not like everyone who is on the anti-Islam, anti-amnesty side. But if we really care about these issues, we can hold our tongues. Even if I didn’t like you, Skunky, I would like your priorities. Why can’t the ARs understand?
