The captain of Romania’s Fed Cup team made a nasty comment about the skin color of Serena Williams' unborn child.
As Serena Williams’ fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, is white, some people find it possible to comment on the racial identity of the tennis star’s unborn child.
Instead of congratulating Williams upon her pregnancy 70-year-old Ilie Nastase asked, “Let’s see what color it has. Chocolate with milk?”
But here’s what Williams answered on Instagram: “It disappoints me to know we live in a society where people like Ilie Nastase can make such racist comments towards myself and (my) unborn child.” The International Tennis Federation (ITF) reacted to the incident suspending Nastase.
Nastase showed no remorse concerning what he had said. “I want to know what word I used is racist?” he asked adding he had done nothing to apologise for. Racism doesn’t lie in words it lies in white people’s attitudes and their awful ability to make any word racist.
