Celebs for Serena Williams

It's time to change how we talk about female athletes. We can do better.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams has faced racist attacks for most of her career, but now celebrity allies are coming to her defense after cartoonist Mark Knight released an editorial cartoon which featured an irate Williams jumping on her tennis racket, which many determined to be racist. CNN reports Harry Potter" author JK Rowling responds, "Well done on reducing one of the greatest sportswomen alive to racist and sexist tropes and turning a second great sportswoman into a faceless prop."
