US Open Womens Single champion Naomi Osaka of Japan (L) with Serena Williams of the US during their Women’s Singles Finals match at the 2018 US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in NY on September 8, 2018.
There is so much more to the match Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka played, most of it reason for celebration. Osaka, who became the first-ever Japanese-born Grand Slam victor, said she was crying when she heard the boos, because she thought they were aimed at her.
Ohanian was referencing Herald Sun editor Damon Johnston’s profile at the website for Male Champions of Change, a body that prides itself on working with “influential leaders to redefine men’s role in taking action on gender inequality”.
According to Australian newspaper The Herald Sun and its cartoonist, Mark Knight, a cartoon of Serena Williams that echoes the harmful caricatures of black men and women once drawn in a shameful part of USA history isn’t racist.
