Serena williams dating white man
The former disparaged Williams in the comments section of news stories about the engagement, calling the athlete “ugly,” a “man” and imploring her not to breed with her fiancé.The latter took to social media to call Williams “desperate,” a “bed wench” and to suggest that she’s choosing “to get colonized” by marrying interracially.While the mainstream media has used such statistics to suggest that black women aren’t sexually desirable, black media has dug deeper, considering that the legacy of sexual abuse during slavery has made black women reluctant to cross the color line for romance.And yet suggesting, as Melony Hill did, that Black women betray their ancestors by partnering with white men, imposes a double standard, since black men aren’t held to the same standard despite the fact that white women also played roles in the beatings and fracturing of slave families.In Williams’s case, the slavery argument is spectacularly misplaced because her fiancé’s ancestors were not American slaveholders.Ohanian is the son of a German immigrant mother and a Armenian American father whose family settled in the United States following the Armenian genocide.At some point during the past decade, Hollywood decided that mixed couples just aren’t controversial anymore.On shows such as ABC’s , the biopic about the couple who took their fight against anti-miscegenation laws to the Supreme Court in 1967, suggest that interracial marriage today is unremarkable.
