Biotch-lets: VenuSerena Defend Judenrein Tennis Tourney

By Debbie Schlussel
Yesterday, I criticized Venus and Serena Williams, the highly-ranked women’s tennis players who are participating in the anti-Semitic Dubai Tennis Championships. As I pointed out, these two hypocritas have spoken out against racism and discrimination, but apparently only care if that discrimination is pigment-based against them.
As I’ve noted in the past, even though the Williams sisters have reached unimaginable heights atop the tennis world and earned unbelievable riches, their father, Richard Williams, constantly screams, “racism.” And they never disagree with him. What’s that I hear from Mr. Williams about Dubai? Al-crickets chirping in the Dubaian desert.


Got IslamoFascism?

Well, I apparently was understating their hypocrisy and outrageous behavior. Check this out from the Williams Sisters who don’t want to upset “sponsors” (which include title sponsor Barclays, the bank owned by Abu Dhabi Emirate sheikhs) and want to earn money. Venus Williams sits on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Players’ Council, and she made the decision for the women tennis players not to boycott this anti-Semitic tourney.
Just ask yourself what the Williams’ response would be if White tennis players said these things about a Whites-only tennis tournament:

Venus Williams says her fellow players had no intention of boycotting the Dubai Championships after Israeli Shahar Peer was denied a visa. . . .
“There are so many other people involved. Sponsors are important to us,” said Williams.
“We wouldn’t be here without sponsors. We can’t let sponsors down.
“Whatever we do, we need to do as a team – players, sponsors, tour and whoever – and not all break off in one direction. We are team players.”

Yeah, team players for Judenrein.

“I have to look at the bigger picture.
“The big picture is that Shahar Peer didn’t get a chance to play, but making an immediate decision we also have to look at sponsors, fans and everyone who has invested a lot in the tournament.
“I think there are rules and protocols as to how you can proceed.”

Uh-huh. Once there were Jim Crow “rules and protocols as to how you can proceed,” Venus.
Sister Serena agrees with this “outlook.”
I’ve never liked the hypocritical, selfish Williams sisters, and in the past, I’ve referred to them on this site as VenuSerena, far too nice a name for them. A more appropriate moniker rhymes with another one of the things they are: rich.
By the way, this reminds me of the Wayans brothers’ hilarious parody of VenuSerena in a “Got Milk?” ad. Except that I think the Wayans brothers looked more like women. (If you can find the video or a pic of the Wayans as the Williams, please send it.)

The Williams sisters are quite hypocritical. Recently, I read that the two no longer compete at the Indian Wells tournament. Don’t recall the specifics, but the gist is that they (along with Daddy)claimed racial discrimination when they last played there (few years ago), and haven’t competed since. The sponsors have griped about this, so how come sponsor happiness doesn’t matter at Indian Wells? I guess it matters depending on who’s on the receiving end of the discrimination.

Typical. Just like Will Smith. Make a fortune off of mostly white fans, then scream racism. Blech.

Whenever I see a documentary or news story about the challenges a black person faced in the 1950s or 1960s breaking into an all-white team or school, there so often seems to have been a Jewish teammate, roommate or classmate who came to his defense, refused to take part in an all-white event or took some other principled and courageous act to side with the victim of discrimination and prejudice.
Would it be too much to expect some blacks who are aware of their history and the Jewish role in the civil rights movement to speak out or encourage the Williams sisters to show a little social responsibility? This whole issue confirms what has been clear for years: the black-Jewish political relationship consists of black and Jewish people working together for black causes.
If anyone has the clout, fame and wealth to take a stand, it’s Venus and Serena. There is no way the WTA–and perhaps even Dubai– wouldn’t act differently if the Williams made it clear they wouldn’t play in a tournament that discriminates against players because of race or religion. As mentioned above, they basically make their own rules as to their playing schedule.

Wow–someone needs to let Eric Holder know immediately.
Oh wait–this isn’t the sort of racism that he cares about either.
I hope that he’ll PARDON me.

I’ve spoken with about 10 coworkers that are black about the sweat shop conditions that exist in the shops that produce their tennis and basketball shoes. I’ve yet to hear one of them say a thing about the child slavery that exists in these factories.
Or how about all the black players that play for the Washington Redskins football team? Native Americans have been protesting the name for years but do any black players refuse to suit up or ask to be traded?

Serena and Venus are the best there is, the best there was, and the best there will ever be. I don’t even know one player in women’s tennis other than Venus and Serena. I am not big fan of boycotts. Google “boycott” and everybody has a boycott for someone or something. Each shaming you if you don’t follow.

Surprised y’all not doing a hora for the NY Post fatwah against Obama!!!

EminemsRevenge on February 19, 2009 at 10:40 pm

VenusSerena (what’s the difference?) may be the best tennis players in the world but I am still not convinced that they are women. I think they’re hermaphrodites at best.
Plus, they look like apes. Sorry, Reverend Al and Eric Holder, but they do.

Black anti-semitism is not really new; it has been a problem for many years, and it is not just Al Sharpton or Jesse jackson. It is most of the Black Caucus in Congress. They are on average the most anti-Israel people in Congress. Remember crazy Cynthia McKinny? Conyers? In addition to widespread black antisemitism, the desire for a buck is certainly more important than any kind of principles. Principles are only important to keep opponents off balance, and this will be done constantly, since the desire of professional African-Americans is more and more power.

Re : Black gratitude
Any Jew who expects gratitude from blacks for
their contributions to the Civil Rights
movement probably also believed President
Clinton that he would be in the trenches with
his trusty long rifle to defend Israel ! Wake
up people !

Lord knows there have as many,if not more,Whites who contributed to the Civil Rights movements, who have also been screwed by Black racists in return. Total ingratitude.Maybe,just maybe,the whole thing wasn’t worth it? But I digress….
The Williams “sisters” and especially their Baby Daddy,Richard, have been nothing but an insufferable,ugly stain on the sport,since 1996.Their act has been the same as many other Blacks that have gotten filthy stinking rich in sports – endlessly bitch that they’re being discriminated against,”racism”( If there was still the sort of “racism” that they claim existed in their sport, they would not be allowed to play it .But they’re are ignorantly unable to understand that )and endlessly throw the Race Card in the face of sports( Which Whitey created ),and civilization itself. Then, when any heat comes on them, simply claim “their statments were taken out of context”( Another thing they really have no understanding of,since that takes an education of the English language,which they have always been contemptuous of ).
Also, they play, not so much to win, but with a total,racist mindset,especially when playing against a White opponent( Which,of course, if any White athlete was found to be doing, would get them BANNED forever from their sport ),for “revenge” against Whitey.
WHAT “Racism”?
WHAT “Oppression”?

“Also, they play, not so much to win, but with a total,racist mindset,especially when playing against a White opponent( Which,of course, if any White athlete was found to be doing, would get them BANNED forever from their sport ),for “revenge” against Whitey.”
DA-YUMM! OldSchoolW, you’ve gone way to far with yuor comments. You’re sick and need some help with your constant obsession to attack Black folks in any commentary you write. Do you have a Doctorate in Psychology and have personally examined the Williams Sisters? Or are you ascribing racist motives to the Williams sisters because the Satannic Internet “media” that you endlessly view always acribes Black folks as being the true racists while you’re free from sin because of the happenstance of your skin color at birth (which you, or anyone else had no voice in choosing, so please stop acting like you’ve earned something). You’re doing what’s called self-projection…because YOU operate out of racist motives, you think everyone else, such as the Williams sisters, are doing the same. OldSchoolW, please get some help and realize your racialized viewpoint belongs to YOU, and not everyone in the world operates according to your world view. And last I looked, weren’t both of the Williams sisters boyfriends White???
As far as being a “stain” on the sport, the only stain I’ve seen in women’s tennis over the last few years is what’s left of America players after the Russian and other former Soviet-block players get through stomping them. If you and other vapid racists are so concerned about the Williams sisters being a “stain”, then get off your ass and start complaining about how few if any other American players are playing worth a damn. If it hadn’t been for the Williams sisters, the United States would have had few, if any, players in any women’s tennis finals competition over the last few years.

I wonder how many times the Williams sister read stories about Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and thought about how if they were alive back then when blacks were discriminated against they would have bravely stood up to the terrible injustices of that day.
They probably thought that they would have been one of the few that stood up to Hitler and spoke out against the awful way he treated the Jews of his day.
But the truth is that if God had put your souls in a two white people and they had been born in 1920, you would have been some the white people saying that “those damn colored need to be put in their place” while the blacks were being beaten and waterhosed.
History keeps repeating it’s self and the Williams sisters are some of those timid weak-knee-ed people we see all through history and we ask ourselves how could they live with themselves to see such obvious injustice and sit back and do nothing or worse, even participate in it or even worse yet, profit from it.

Looks like Dubai has allowed Andy Ram to come to the tournament:
Now why can’t they just renege and let Peer come? I mean it can’t be too late, isn’t it just a short plane ride from Israel to Dubai (OK I know there’s no direct flights between the two, but still, maybe go from Egypt to Dubai?). I think it’s a bit hypocritical and ludicrous actually.
This article seems to show that the Williams sisters did “speak out”, but of course a full boycott would’ve been the real way to go.

You must not understand African Americans. They talk about slavery every day, though there haven’t been any African American slaves for a hundred and forty years. But talk to them about the fact that there are more slaves in the world today than ever before, and they get bored. They could care less.

All Jewish people have big noses and are idiots whose only god is money…sorry just following the backward generalizations of a lot of the comments.

Israel is a racist apartheid state. So it’s OK to keep millions of people on lockdown in the world’s largest open-air prison (the West Bank and Gaza Strip), people who I might add are the rightful owners of the land that constitutes Israel and were forced out of their home at gunpoint in the ethnic cleansing without which Israel wouldn’t have been formed? Generation after generation of people living in squalid tent city refugee camps and crapping in plastic buckets while the theives who stole their land get to live in their homes and farm their land? That’s fine by you?

But when another country which rightfully despises the piece of s**t apartheid state Israel enough to refuse diplomatic relations with it denies a visa to one of its athletes that’s worth getting yourself all worked up over?

How about putting things in proper perspective?
