    Good Evening TODbots.
    I’m so sorry Serena lost.
    I’m also so sorry that Serena lost her cool.
    I do feel bad for Naomi Osaka. It wasn’t her fault for what the umpire did. At 20yo, She played her best Tennis thus far.

    Hearing our forever President speaking to all of us again is shifting my attitude from fight to the death to We Can Do This!

    This is one of those pivotal moments when every one of us, as citizens of the United States, need to determine just who it is that we are. Just what it is that we stand for. And as a fellow citizen, not as an ex-president, I delivered a simple message to students at the University of Illinois today. You need to vote, because our democracy depends on it. The biggest threat to our democracy doesn't come from any one person. The biggest threat to our democracy is indifference. The biggest threat to our democracy is cynicism – a cynicism that’s led too many people to turn away from politics, and to stay home on Election Day. The antidote to government by the powerful few is democracy by the organized many. If you get involved, and engaged, and knock on some doors, and talk with your friends, and argue with your family members, and change some minds, and vote – then something powerful happens. Change happens. Hope happens. With each new candidate that surprises you with a victory, a spark of hope happens. With each new law that helps a kid read, or a poor family find shelter, or a veteran get the support he or she has earned, hope happens. With each new step we take in the direction of fairness, and justice, and equality, and opportunity, hope spreads. I believe that can be the legacy of your generation. You can be the generation that stood up and reminded us just how precious democracy is, and just how powerful it can be when we fight for it. I believe you will. Because I believe in you. And I’ll be right there alongside you, every step of the way.

        It’s why I don’t sleep well and wake up in the middle of the night. Done it every night since he stole the spot.

        • September 9, 2018 at 12:31 pm

          Same. I haven’t really slept a solid night since the election. Every day filled with disgust and repulsion, sad for my country. Sad for everyone who is the target of all these draconian policies and practices, which will eventually touch every last one of us.

    Morning everyone. Wonder why Rick Perry would need to go to Moscow for 2 days?

    MOSCOW (Reuters) – U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry will visit Moscow over Sept. 11-13, Russian news agency RIA reported on Sunday, citing a diplomatic source.

  37. September 9, 2018 at 11:33 am

    Is this white bias? Viz. the critique of Serena’s outfit in France and what just happened in New York.
    Isn’t it the MALE COACH who should have been cautioned? She has to go back and WIN.

    • September 9, 2018 at 11:35 am

      Billy Jean King: “When a woman is emotional, she’s “hysterical” and she’s penalized for it. When a man does the same, he’s “outspoken” and there are no repercussions. Thank you Serena Williams, for calling out this double standard. More voices are needed to do the same.”

      I understand what he is trying to do…but we MUST point out the criminality of the Republican Party who has enable the criminality of Trump…and just as Pres Obama pointed out yesterday…Trump is only a symptom of the problem…the GOP is about hoiding on to power at the expense of democracy…and has used undemocratic practices to undermine the rights of Americans…

      it is important to point out that it is the Democratic party that is fighting to hold onto democratic norms and principles…We Can Not Be Afraid to say it!

    by Leslé Honoré.
    The world owes you an apology
    Not just the umpire
    Not just the French Open
    Not just racists who ask if you feel
    intimidates by the Sharapaova’s basic looks
    Or being drug tested more than
    The basic looking actual drug user
    The nurses and doctors who ignored
    Your knowledge
    Of your own body
    Almost causing your death
    Every time they questioned your
    Femininity
    Ability
    Strength
    Integrity
    Victory
    They did so because of your skin
    Asian parents who mold their children are
    Tiger mothers
    White parents who risk everything
    Turn sex tapes into millions
    Are momagers
    But your father who made legends out of
    Compton Concrete
    Shaping you and your sister
    Like Michelangelo chiseled David
    He is loud
    Obnoxious
    Insane
    The world owes you an apology
    But we know it will never come
    Because first they would have to
    acknowledge
    The hatred
    The racism
    It isn’t your black panther suit
    Your beauty
    Your millions
    Your venting to an umpire
    A broken racket
    Or a demand of proper medical care
    It’s your blackness that offends
    Your power when you should be powerless
    Your confidence
    Who you should always grovel
    Always remind yourself
    That you should thank them
    for allowing you
    To be on the courts at all
    As if a Queen tells the jester
    thank you for her
    Throne
    You are the living breathing embodiment of
    #blackgirlmagic
    The dream of our ancestors
    The power of our foremothers
    The strength that the
    Middle passage
    Slavery
    Jim Crow
    and America
    Could not break
    You are more than the
    GOAT
    You are the goddess
    Fearless
    More than tennis
    You are a living black legend

      Beautiful poem. Plus she is raising a future Black legend and an inspiration to another, Ms. Osaka, who gives props to the Queen of Tennis.

      Thanks for sharing this beautiful praise poem for Serena Williams. My daughter is 8 months older than Serena and she greatly admires her strength and her fearlessness. I am so proud of Serena and Venus who are such an inspiration to young black women like my daughter.
