Tennis player Caroline
Wozniacki accused of
´racist´ impersonation of Serena Williams
by stuffing bra and pants

UK Daily Mail, by Daily Mail Reporter

Original Article

Caroline Wozniacki has been accused of doing a ´racist´ impersonation of fellow tennis player Serena Williams after stuffing her bra and shorts. At a recent exhibition against Maria Sharapova in Brazil, the former world No. 1 stuffed courtside towels down her kit to replicate the body of the curvaceous Grand Slam champion. But now the 22-year-old Dane, whose boyfriend golfer Rory McIlroy was in the crowd, has now been accused of racism by some observers.

Comments:
FTA:"Williams is well known for referring to her curvaceous figure - the day before the tennis star, also in Brazil to promote the 2016 Games, had tweeted: ´Do they make Brazilian bikinis for, um, well, me?´.
In July she tweeted a photo of her bottom, with the accompanying words: ´Hummm I think this onzie makes me butt look TOO big. Ugh. #BigButtproblems.´ "

"Now serving # 44...Miss Williams, your triple prtion of hypocrisy is ready"

This is how the lie-berals train their enemies.

No matter what a normal person does or says, just put them on the defense by claiming they are ´´racist´´ (or ´´sexist´´ or ´´homophobic´´ or whatever other terms they can come up with for their feelings being hurt).

Pretty soon, normaly people are too afraid to say anything, and they have won.

I hope Serena comes out and tells the idiots crying ´´racism´´ to shut up, that she found her friend´s joke to be funny. But I won´t hold my breath...

Isn´t Willians a friend of the accused?

And wasn´t Williams in the audience laughing?

Much ado about nothing.

Golly. I didn´t know that gargantuan boobs and butts were only the province of the blacks. (Jennifer Lopez, are you there?)

How about just colorblind mockery of a woman who makes an *** of herself by another woman?

The article says that "some" are offended. And that "bloggers wrote". This is a "who cares" story, but allows the media to keep their template of "The world is racist" alive and that is all they want.

All Caroline Wozniacki has to do is say, "I can´t be a racist because I self-identify as black."

And when her accusers say, "But you don´t look or sound or act black," she just has to respond: "That´s racist!"

I know plenty of black ladies who are thin as rails. How is this racist? This was poking friendly fun at a specific person who apparently found it funny.

The media and governments are working overtime to mute real racism by overplaying the "racist!" card.

There is a word for one-half of this phenomenon: Steatopygia.
(If you haven´t seen this term before, look it up; it´s a good word and hasn´t been branded "racist" yet.)

Our president, despite his generally skinny frame, has some steatopygiac aspects.

This is what the lib media does, finds the unidentified "some" or "they" (or has been shown numerous times, makes them up) and then proceed to make an issue where none exists. Very often too, the "aggrieved" person or party doesn´t even know he/she is supposed to be insulted/aggrieved until the lame stream media tells them they should be.

Let me see if I have this down correctly; A black actor/comedian (Fox) can talk about killing all the white folks in a movie he stars in and it is "art" and funny. Wozniacki spoofs a black tennis player who is in the audience laughing with the joke and it is "racist"! Well, it seems to me that Obama has successfully split this country down the lines of race and income. This is just a sample of what he and the liberal fools that run the MSM have wrought!

I would not call this racist at all. One needs to understand history to see why some would consider it so...even if they are wrong. Maybe Wozniacki should work on her tennis game since she will surely be paird up against Williams in some upcoming tournament.

Wozniacki is good looking, and it doesn´t hurt that her boyfriend is Rory McIlroy. Loved seeing the picture of Maria Sharapova with the article; they should have included more pictures of her.

Wait, what was this article about again?

Was she also eating a watermelon or chicken, made up in black face or doing anything else that might stereotype black people? Or was she just making fun of a specific person based on her specific looks?

Sounds like to me that the accusers are the racists ones for thinking all black girls look like Williams.

Thanks for a new word: Steatopygia. Looked it up, and laughed my butt off.

I don´t think Serena has it, since she´s well-proportioned. She´s a big, curvy gal, and it´s just a joke that a little, non-curvy gal teased her about it. Sheesh. Last time I looked, there are big, curvy gals of every race.

Besides (and not to be unkind), my blond-haired, blue-eyed ex-SIL could have her picture posted as an example in the Wikipedia article on steatopygia.

President Barack Obama offered on Saturday to provide any assistance the Algerian government needs after a deadly hostage siege at a desert gas plant and said the United States was seeking a "fuller understanding" from Algerian authorities of what took place there. "The thoughts and prayers of the American people are with the families of all those who were killed and injured in the terrorist attack in Algeria," Obama said in his first comments on the hostage crisis.

Boehner´s tactics

Conservative congressmen don´t question House Speaker John Boehner´s dedication to the cause. But as chaos overtakes GOP efforts to prevent a Jan. 1 tax hike, members do have doubts about his effectiveness. Here´s the latest turn of events: Over the summer, House Republicans passed a bill extending the Bush-era tax rates, which are set to expire, resulting in higher rates Jan. 1. That was Boehner´s Plan A. Senate Democrats said no, and so Boehner rolled out Plan B: extend current rates for all income below $1 million, and rein in Social Security spending.

Both Speaker John Boehner and media analysts have been spun into a state of confusion by the fiscal cliff issue and President Obama´s reelection. The fiscal cliff exists because the president and the GOP Congress could not decide in 2011 on a permanent general policy toward the budget. And now the president has added another factor: he is determined to usurp the Congressional authority to raise the debt ceiling. If the budget goes over the cliff, two things will happen: tax rates on everyone will rise, and across the board spending cuts will be made.

New York - Federal agents raided an eastern Connecticut gun shop on Thursday, the same gun shop that sold one of the weapons used by the Newtown elementary school shooter. Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, assisted by police, moved in on Riverview Sales at 4 Prospect Hill Road in East Windsor at around 5:15 p.m., reported Len Besthoff of CBS 2 sister station WFSB in Hartford. Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children and six adults with a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle in Newtown last Friday, the second-worst mass shooting in United States history.

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl.
