Are the williams sisters dating anyone
Tennis superstar Serena Williams is marrying Reddit cofounder and Y Combinator partner Alexis Ohanian, according to a Thursday post she made on — where else — Reddit. The sisters have just played each other in the final of the Lipton International Players Championships (now the Sony Ericsson Open), with Venus defeating Serena to win the tournament.
Williams and Ohanian have been in a relationship since late 2015, following her relationship with musician Drake. This was the first time that two sisters had competed against each other in a final.
But social media continues to let us know that prejudice thinking individuals are still alive and well.
When news broke that Serena Williams was engaged to Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian, a White man, as usual, folks got to talking.
Serena and Alexis are engaged and appear to be happy.I hate to say it, but every time a Black woman—or man for that matter—gets engaged to a member of another race or ethnicity, prejudice and racist folks alike come a stomping. But to outright judge a celebrity who you do not know…and frankly fellas, had a VERY small chance of snagging is just ridiculous.I used to think that these types of sentiments were limited to White, Anglo Saxon individuals who grew up in minuscule towns, but as I mature, I’m learning that a “separate but equal” mentality thrives in America and beyond– regardless of your race—especially when it comes to love and marriage.
