Caroline Wozniacki was accused of being racist when she stuffed her chest and behind in an attempt to imitate Serena Williams during a recent exhibition tennis match. Williams, who calls the Danish tennis player a friend, has responded and indicated she did not find the imitation to be racist. “I know Caro and I would call her my friend and I don’t think she (meant) anything racist by it,” Williams told USA Today over email. “(Roddick) and (Djokovic) do it all the time and Caro does (it) and now it’s racist.??” she wrote. “At the end of the day I spend my time focused on things to become better and not bring me down.” Though Williams does not believe the imitation is racist, she thinks her impersonators might be wise to shelve the act given the backlash. “I must add if people feel this way she should take reason and do something different next time.” Maybe Serena’s comments on the matter will serve as a cue for people to drop the racism accusations. Like she referenced in her emails, nobody called it racist when Andy Roddick did the same thing last year, or when Wozniacki did it last time. The players were imitating the way Serena looks by exaggerating her extreme curves. I could see how that could be taken as a personal insult for mocking someone’s looks, but I do not see how it is racist. Serena’s voluptuous body is a big reason why she is so desirable to many men. She not only embraces her curvy body, but she also seems to enjoy flaunting it. Many women would love to have her figure, and many men would love to be with a woman who looks like her.
