Why Maria Sharapova’s Rivalry With Serena Williams Echoes The Practiced Fragility of White Women
Ezinne Ukoha

Not one of your better posts, Ezinne. It almost comes off as a Facebook or You Tube comment that just went way too long.

As one other has pointed out, when you extrapolate one white person (woman) to all white women that really does come across as racist. And I know you are not, so you can do better.

There are many, many, many very strong and powerful white women who don’t revel in any kind of delicate male-fantasy feminine construction. My mother was one such woman. She fulfilled the social requirements of an upper middle class white woman of the 60s/70s, but had an inner strength and sense of purpose that could pull a 100 car freight train. Sharapova, in spite of her many annoying traits, has been fetishiszed endlessly by the media, and if you don’t think that that is problematic for her, think again.

Do better next time. I love to read what you write.
