Racist or not? Is Caroline Wozniacki racist or having 'harmless fun'

Caroline Wozniacki mocked world-renowned tennis player Serena Williams on Monday during an exhibition tennis match. Wozniacki stuffed her tank top and skirt with towels and proceeded to strut around the tennis court in Brazil. Wozniacki was playing against Maria Sharapova, who seemed unsure how to react Monday as Wozniacki pretended to have the curvaceous body of Serena Williams. Serena Williams was not in the crowd to witness the gag.

Some in the crowd cheered Wozniacki on as she laughed and jumped around the tennis court. While Yahoo Sports is calling this “hilarious”, others are calling this racist.

One blogger wrote, “this isn’t “harmless fun” as one article described it. its racist. out and outright racism. mocking and making fun of the bodies of black women for a laugh? real funny, stupid white girl. real real funny.”

Another blogger reminded people of the recent “Serena Williams ‘crip walk”. “So a white woman can do something like this, but Serena Williams can’t crip walk to celebrate a victory? Wozniacki stuffed her bra and underwear so that she could appear like Serena. It may have been done in “jest,” but I love how people can can turn a black woman’s body and sexuality into a caricature. However, we should not have the autonomy to celebrate any successes of our own.”

This is not the first time Wozniacki mocked Serena Williams on the court. Last year, Wozniacki danced out onto the tennis court to a Rihanna song. Some believe that Wozniacki’s repeated mocking of Serena Williams is due to fear, others think it is because of intimidation, and others still believe that Wozniacki is racist. One thing remains certain, the scattered laughs from the crowd and her stuffed shirt and skirt did not help Wozniacki on the tennis court, as she lost to Sharapova, 6-2, 7-6.
