Herald Sun refuses to back down over ‘racist’ Serena Williams cartoon

Herald Sun refuses to back down over ‘racist’ Serena Williams cartoon

Notably, Williams had called Ramos a "thief" after the seasoned chair umpire handed her three code violations during the controversial final. Would he have punished a man the same way, or was sexism part of the story?

National Basketball Association star Stephen Curry says Serena Williams acted with "grace and class" during her controversial U.S. Open final loss to Naomi Osaka.

And on the future of the sport, King said she's looking forward to seeing more of Osaka. "But I'm going to continue to fight for women", Williams said.

"So much of what she experiences we experience in the workplace, too", said Willingham, a professor of criminal justice at the State University of NY at Plattsburgh. "We regret that there has been a controversy because of a simple issue: When the club hired the charter flight, it was not expected that the women's team would travel." a club spokesperson clarified. "Any time we step out of that lane, then we become a problem". Women are treated differently in most arenas of life. She recalls once seeing a white female co-worker cursing and throwing things and not facing repercussions, while she's been told to calm down for expressing her own upset in a normal tone of voice.

'Umpires keep asking: 'What if it was me in that chair on Saturday?' There is a widespread feeling that Carlos was hung out to dry for almost 48 hours and that no one is standing up for officials, ' the official said.

Osaka - a self-confessed Williams fan - went on to win her maiden grand slam amid unsavoury scenes in which she was jeered during the presentation ceremony and felt the need to apologise to the unhappy fans. Williams denied it, but Ramos issued a violation. "Ramos, effectively, had no choice but to dock her a point", Navratilova said.

Writing in an opinion article for the New York Times, the 61-year-old Czech-born American said a higher standard needed to be observed when Williams called chair umpire Carlos Ramos a "thief" and was penalised a key game in the second set.

In the wake of the tennis match, Twitter users were quick to unearth several occasions in which Ramos seemed to give male tennis players a slap on the wrist for the same exact behavior.

"Just maybe changed - not maybe, but he did change the course of the match", Djokovic said.

USTA President Katrina Adams said: "We watch the guys do this all the time, they're badgering the umpire on the changeovers, nothing happens". They're acting like a man, all of that.

"When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalised for it".

Martin and others pointed to a cartoon by an Australian artist as the clearest example of the stereotype facing black women.

The Herald Sun has defended a blatantly racist Mark Knight cartoon depicting Serena Williams' US Open final loss, saying that criticism of the image - and there has been a lot of criticism - is overblown.

Contributing to the Herald Sun, a morning newspaper covering news in Melbourne and Victoria, Knight portrayed Williams as having spat out her dummy and jumping onto her downed racket while opponent Naomi Osaka and umpire talk in the background.
