Pilot Mercedes Lewis Hamilton has supported the legendary tennis player Serena Williams, who was involved in another scandal on the grounds of racism.
Not long ago Serena announced her pregnancy. In response to the news, former Romanian tennis player Ilie Nastase joked: “Look, what color will the baby. The chocolate milk?”
In your profile Instagram winner of 23 tournaments of the Grand Slam called the comment racist and posted a quote by American writer and poetess Maya Angelou:
“I can defame you,
I lie in vain not afraid,
Even in the dirt I trample –
Like dust, I’ll rise again”
When Hamilton was asked how he responded to this post Williams, he said, “I just found out on Thursday in Sochi.
I fully support her words. I think she posted a beautiful poem. This is a powerful and independent black woman.
Not only is she one of the greatest women I know. She was born to be a leader. Reading her posts, I get inspired. I hope these words inspire others.”
