What do you will expect will follow Dallas

Serena Williams biggest statement today

<snip>
However, Serenaís biggest statements of the day might have come off of the court.

We already knew that Serena was keeping an eye on what has been happening in the United States this week because of a tweet she sent on Thursday about the death of Philando Castile, but she elaborated on racial tensions in America after defeating Kerber.

ďI donít think that the answer is to continue to shoot our young black men in the United States,Ē she said, as reported by Ben Rothenberg.

I feel anyone in my color in particular is of concern. I do have nephews that Iím thinking, Do I have to call them and tell them, ĎDonít go outside. If you get in your car, it might be the last time I see you.í

That is something that I think is of great concern, because it will be devastating. Theyíre very good kids. I donít think that the answer is to continue to shoot our young black men in the United States. Itís just unfortunate. Or just black people in general.

Also, obviously, violence is not the answer of solving it. The shooting in Dallas was very sad. No one deserves to lose their life, doesnít matter what color they are, where theyíre from. Weíre all human. We have to learn that we have to love one another. Itís going to take a lot of education and a lot of work, I think, to get to that point.

But I think, in general, the entire situation is extremely sad, especially for someone like me. Itís something that is very painful to see happening.
