Serena Williams Gets Historic Wimbledon Win But More Concerned For Her Nephews

Serena Williams, 34, captured her record-tying 22nd grand slam title by defeating Germany’s Angelique Kerber 7-5, 6-3 at Wimbledon. Williams had been denied achieving the record at the Australian Open and French Open finals this year, so hoisting up the Venus Rosewater Dish after her women’s single victory was especially rewarding.
“That’s something that is of great concern, because it would be devastating. They’re very good kids.
“I don’t think the answer is to continue to shoot our young black men in the United States, or black people in general.
She added: “The shooting in Dallas was very sad. No one deserves to lose their life, doesn’t matter what color they are, where they’re from. We’re all human. We have to learn that we have to love one another.
“But I think, in general, the entire situation is extremely sad, especially for someone like me. It’s something that is very painful to see happening.”
In London I have to wake up to this. He was black. Shot 4 times? When will something be done- no REALLY be done?!?! pic.twitter.com/OaLn60G6nm
